care and preparation
Here are answers to the most commonly asked questions regarding preparation for and care of your airbrush tan.
How should I prepare for my airbrush tanning session?
Preparing for your airbrush tanning session can be done in two easy steps. First. Exfoliate and shave the day before (preferred) or the day of your session. Ask your GloPatrol about the new evolv Body Scrub Take-Home Product to maximize your airbrush tanning results. Second. The day of your session, refrain from using moisturizers, perfumes, lotions, oils, or deodorants that may create a barrier between your skin and the airbrush tanning solution. You may resume use of these products after your first shower or bath.
What should I wear during my airbrush tanning session?
The attire for women is whatever they are comfortable with. To help minimize tan lines and protect undergarments, disposable underwear and bras can be worn. The cosmetic bronzers are water soluble and should wash out, but the DHA in the tanning formula may permanently stain what you wear during your session. The attire for men is boxers, briefs, swim trunks, or shorts. Your GloPatrol will always use the utmost discretion.
How should I take care of my heated airbrush tan?
After your tanning session, it is recommended to wait at least 4 hours before showering or bathing (6 to 8 hours for darker, longer-lasting results). NOTE: It is not recommended to participate in any activities that may cause you to perspire excessively before your first shower.
To maintain your airbrush tan, use non-abrasive soaps or gels and do not exfoliate for at least 5 to 7 days. After each shower, it is recommended to use an approved daily moisturizer which contains active ingredients to enhance and prolong the life and depth of your tan. Ask about the new evolv Daily Glo Moisturizer to maximize your airbrush tanning results.
NOTE: Overexposure to highly chlorinated water for extended periods of time, such as in swimming pools or hot tubs, is not recommended and may decrease the length of time your airbrush tanning results will last.
How long will my airbrush tan last?
The life of your sunless color can last up to 8 days, depending on the type and amount of solution applied and your pre- and post-application skincare.
What can I wear after my airbrush tanning session?
If you are receiving your tan treatment on your lunch break, your everyday attire will usually be just fine. However, we don’t recommend wearing white sun dresses or white undergarments, just to be on the safe side. The cosmetic bronzers in the tanning solutions and additives are water-soluble and should simply wash out. If your session is after work, you can bring a change of clothing and flip-flops if you prefer.
How do I prepare if I've booked a GloPatrol mobile airbrush tanning session?
You will need to have a place for your GloPatrol to set up a spray-tan tent and a ventilation fan. These items can fit easily in most bathrooms or bedrooms. Access to a standard 110-volt outlet is required. Your GloPatrol also will bring an evolv backdrop to prevent overspray from collecting in your home.
