Preparation Essentials for Spring Break

Can you believe it's already that time of year again? Time to break out the sunscreen, dust off those flip-flops, and start preparing for the ultimate vacation. Whether you're hitting the beach, exploring a new city, or simply enjoying a well-deserved staycation, there's no denying the excitement that comes with planning for spring break. So grab your favorite drink, kick back, and let's dive into all the fun and adventure that awaits!

So, let's talk prep – 

If you're planning on waxing before your vacation, you must have at least two weeks of hair growth in the area you intend on waxing. We recommend waxing a few days prior to your trip, and it's especially important to remember to apply and reapply sunscreen! As far as airbrush tans, these should be the very last step in your vacay prep. Make sure you get your nails or any waxing done beforehand!

Let's talk Airbrush Tan prep –

How long before my trip should I do my airbrush tan?

  • We recommend doing your airbrush tan 1-2 days prior to your vacation!

How do I prepare for my airbrush tan?

  • Shower, shave, and exfoliate your skin the day of your appointment, or one day before. We recommend using an exfoliating mitt with a foaming body cleanser.

  • Do not use an oil-based sugar/salt scrub or a creamy body wash because they can leave a residue on your skin that may prevent the airbrush tanning solution from being absorbed evenly.

  • We prefer if you do not apply any body lotion before your Airbrush tanning appointment. However, If your skin is extremely dry, you can apply a very light moisturizer one hour or more before your appointment.

  • If you are planning on waxing, it is ideal to do that one day or more before your appointment. You do not want to wax after your airbrush tan because the wax will remove your tan.

What do I wear during my airbrush tanning session?

  • While you are getting your airbrush tan, you can wear whatever you are comfortable with. Most women choose to wear panties, bra & panties, or a swimsuit. The solutions that we use do have an instant bronzer that can rub off on clothing. Although it will wash out of most fabrics, it is best to wear dark garments.

What do I wear after my airbrush tan session?

  • You should wear loose fitting, darker clothing when you leave your appointment. The best thing to wear is loose sweatpants, a loose cotton top, and flip flops. Do not wear silk or wool clothes because it may stain these fabrics. If it is raining the day of your appointment, make sure you are covered up! You should definitely wear long sleeves, long pants, a hoodie and bring an umbrella!

Will an airbrush tan ruin my mani/pedi?

  • No! After we tan you, we will take a baby wipe and wipe the solution off of your nails.

Airbrush tans offer a safe, convenient, and customizable way to achieve a beautiful bronzed complexion without the risks associated with UV exposure. Whether you're preparing for a special trip or event, want to maintain a year-round tan, or simply prefer a healthier alternative to sunbathing, airbrush tans are an excellent option to consider. So, next time you're longing for that golden glow, book an appointment for a radiant and sun-kissed look that's both safe and stunning.
