No, you don’t have to be naked when you spray tan. While some people prefer to be nude to avoid tan lines, you have the option to wear whatever is most comfortable for you—like a swimsuit or underwear. During your tan, bronzer could transfer to your clothing but don’t worry! All cosmetic bronzers used in Norvell products are water-soluble, meaning it’ll come out of clothing in the wash. Learn more about what to expect.
We don’t recommend wearing makeup during your spray tan. Cosmetics can act as a barrier on the skin and result in an uneven tan. But don’t fret—Norvell products are non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog your pores and are okay to apply onto the face.
Your spray tan artist will tell you how to position your body to make sure you receive an even natural-looking tan. Just follow their guidance to end up with a beautiful tan. Find a location near you to get a spray tan!
After your spray tan, you can get dressed as soon as you feel dry, which is normally within a couple minutes after the session. Your spray tan artist can speed up the dry time by removing the spray gun from the air hose and “blow drying” your skin. Another tip: We don’t suggest wearing tight clothing because your tan can rub off. Wearing dark, loose-fitting clothes is the way to go!
This one is important! You shouldn’t shower for at least 24 hours after getting a spray tan. You should also avoid sweating or swimming during this time. Most Norvell products contain a bronzer to give you an immediate tan. The bronzer is cosmetic, and will wash off in the shower revealing a natural-looking tan that will last about a week.
Yes, maintain that glow between spray tans! Norvell has many self-tan options to maintain your tan at home. Instant self tanning products immediately allow color to appear deeper. Gradual tanning products are designed to moisturize, build color and extend the life of your tan. Check out Norvell’s tanning accessories to ensure the perfect application.
