Be The Best Bronze You Can Be! Follow The Steps Below.....

Prep Process 

  • Shower, exfoliate, and remove body hair before your tanning session. Do NOT use a moisturizing soap or body wash (especially Dove) before your tan. Sugar scrubs work great!  Make sure to scrub your entire body well.  Please don't use loofas, as they make you streaky. RINSE WELL! 

  • Shave at least 24 hours before your appointment.  If you tan right after shaving, your pores are wide open and you may get little dots on your legs! Please do not shower right before appointment (within 4 hours of session). 

  • Be sure to wash off any hair conditioner/shampoo residue from your body. 


  • Skin should be clean and dry before being sprayed. Don’t apply moisturizers, oils, or makeup before your tanning appointment. They can effect tan development. Remove deodorant prior.

  • Wear dark, loose, easily cleaned clothing to appointment. Wear loose shoes. Bring an old swimsuit or undergarment to tan in. (Wool, lycra, nylon, spandex, silk, rayon, and leather can all stain.) We have disposable underwear should you need some. You may undress to your comfort level.​

  • Do NOT shower within 4 hours of your appointment.  This can alter the color of the overall tan. 

  • Schedule any nail, facial, waxing (24 hours or more) appointments prior to your session with Bronze515! Spray tanning should be last on your list of things to do! 


Post Tan Process

  • Do not shower for 8-12 hours after tan or 2-6 hours for rapid tan. Many people get spray tans at night so they can go right home and sleep and wake up and shower!​ Tans will continue to develop for the next 24 hours. 

  • Use a moisturizer morning and night. The solution takes 24 hours to develop and will continue to develop after shower. 

  • Pat dry after showering or bathing. DO NOT RUB.

  • Use a sharp, clean razor with a lubricating product, when shaving. (Avoid hair removal products: Nair, Neet, wax, etc).

  • Anti-acne products or makeup remover may cause tan to fade.

  • Avoid DOVE products and any bar soaps (unless you purchase our Glo Bar Soap which is formulated for spray tans). 

  • Avoid exfoliating scrubs, facial masks, and toners containing alcohol.

  • Swimming in chlorinated pool or hot tub can cause tan to fade prematurely. Use an SPF that is oil-free. 

  •  Your tan should last anywhere from 5-10 days. 

  • Stay away from harsh moisturizers with fragrance and are unnatural. We recommend Hempz or a lotion similar to these products.  Think natural and safe.  You can purchase Hempz lotion at our studio.
