spray tanning prep and tips
Do you want bronzed, glowing skin instantly with out the UV rays? Welcome to the VersaSpa Sunless Tanning system! Our automated spray tan booth will give you that confidence boosting tan in 10 minutes or less, BUT before you step into the booth, make sure you are ready for your session with these easy steps!
- no water
After your automated spray tan, you need to avoid water for at least 4-8 hours to let the bronzer absorb into your skin. 24 hours is the ideal! If you have plans to hit the pool or gym later, it’s probably not the best day for your tan!
Either the night before or the morning of your tanning day, make sure to shower, shave and exfoliate your body! This removes the dead skin cells and leaves your skin fresh and clean to absorb the bronzer! It also helps the application go on more evenly and last longer! We highly recommend the VersaSpa Cleansing body wash and exfoliator for the proper prep! Avoid bar soaps and any soaps that leave a residue.
- skip makeup and fragrances
If it is possible, don’t put on makeup, body lotion, perfume or even deodorant the day of! If it is impossible for you to avoid this before your tan, make sure you remove all traces before tanning. Moisturizers, makeup, perfume and deodorant can interfere with the bronzer absorbing into your skin. Some deodorants can even make your armpits turn a lovely green colour!
- wear loose fitting, dark clothing.
Although the VersaSpa dries you after your tan, there is still a slight chance of transfer for the first hour or so. Its best to wear clothing that isn’t rubbing against your skin and removing the tan and transferring it to your clothing until it has set in. Also, be sure to remove all your jewelry before your tan and leave it off until the tan is set as well as it can do the same thing as your clothes!
You are now prepped, primed and ready to get your tan on. Welcome to the Dark side!
after your spray tan
- wait at least 6 hours before showering, moisturizing, or any
strenuous sweaty activity.
- apply lotion daily to help keep skin
hydrated, smooth, and to prolong tanning results.
- If there are dark patches around hands, feet, etc. appear, use an emery
board to lightly exfoliate the area.
- since the face is the first area to lose its tan, we carry spray tan in a can, ask us!
- note: VersaSpa® solution does not contain sunscreen and is not a substitute for
proper sun protection.

To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after a session or 8 hours for optimal results. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using an Instant Cosmetic Bronzer option the colour will wash off in the shower, but the color produced by the DHA will remain.
Not at all. Before Sunless Spray Tanning most self-tanners were creams and lotions applied by hand. That meant inconsistent coverage. Too much lotion applied in one place left the skin looking orange. Not enough lotion left unnatural streaks.
The sunless tanning formula is completely water soluble. Users may notice some initial cosmetic color on the inside of their clothing, but this color will wash out in cold water. However, DHA in the tanning formula may permanently stain what you wear during your session.
It can last up to 7 days depending on the formulation you choose and the condition of your skin.
