We want you to get the best results by being ready for your session and knowing what to do before and after. Here’s our easy guide!
If you are going on vacation, preparing for a wedding or other event, make sure to book your session 1-2 days AFTER waxing appointments, manicures and pedicures.
Day of your session
Shower, shave and exfoliate your skin. We recommend using Infinity Sun’s Exfoliating Skin Renewal or Eco Tan's Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub.
Do not use any lotions, creams, heavy perfumes, deodorant or makeup before your session. Eye makeup is fine.
Do not wear jewelry to your session.
Pull hair up and away from your face and neck.
To wear during your tanning session:
Disposable garments to tan in are available for women at Bella Solé, but you may also bring a dark-colored swimsuit or dark undergarment. Men should wear shorts. Infinity Sun Bronzer washes out of most clothing easily, but it can stain wool, silk, light nylon, and other synthetic materials.
To wear immediately after your session:
Wear dark and loose-fitting clothing, along with flip flops or sandals like Havaianas. Items that do not sit close to your skin are best after an airbrush session.
Your tan will continue to develop for 8 hours, so once you’re home, wait for at least that time before showering, swimming, adding moisturizer or doing anything that will cause you to sweat. In other words, relax.
When you do shower, we recommend that you use a sulfate-free soap like Farmer Jane's Goat Milk Soap. When drying off, gently pat your skin dry. Use a new razor after your airbrush tan to minimize fading.
We recommend that you apply a moisturizer to your skin twice daily to keep it hydrated and to prolong your tan.
To maintain and prolong your tan AVOID:
Exfoliating scrubs and cleansers
Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHA)
Citric, tartaric and salicylic acids
Retin-A or products containing Retin-A
Body hair bleach, depilatory or wax hair removers
Any soaps or lotions containing alcohol or sulfates
Perfume or body sprays on any tanned areas
Toners with alcohol or witch hazel
Loofahs, scrubs, wash mitts
We look forward to seeing you at Bella!
