Prior to Your visit*

    -1-2 days before your visit, EXFOLIATE with a water based scrub such as St. Ives Apricot Scrub or plain sugar.  Use in conjunction with exfoliating gloves or facecloth AND SOAP.  Two full exfoliations are recommended*


   -DISCONTINUE USE of all topical exfoliants such as Retinol, Retin-A, AHA's, BHA's, Salicylic acids, etc 3-5 days prior to your visit.

     -Hair removal should be performed at a minimum of 6-8 hours prior to your visit if you have sensitive skin (shaving, waxing to threading).

     _You can get laser hair removal BEFORE your spray tan apt but you must wait a week - 10 days AFTER you spray to get laser 

     -Facials & massage should be performed roughly 24 hours prior to your visit. 


     -Mani's & Pedi's can be performed before your apt as long as the nails are fully dry BUT NOT DIRECTLY AFTER.  If done after, please wait 8 hours. 



The Day of Your Visit**

     -SHOWER WITH BODY WASH OR SOAP*   Use a light body wash or glycerin soap.  Do not use moisture rich soaps such as DOVE that will create a barrier on the skin. 


    -You may tan in under garments, topless or nude(women only).  Please wear dark, loose fitting clothing and bring flip flops or loose fitting shoes.

     -Men should wear shorts, briefs or bikini briefs.

     -Avoid clothing with tight elastics.​​

     -Please do no wear jewelry, lotion, deodorant, perfume, cologne, contacts or facial makeup.

     -If you are coming from work, please bring facial wipes.

    -Please be prepared for inclement weather and make sure you are fully covered**

    -In the summer months  we recommend you place a cloth on your car seat to avoid any color transfer onto leather.


After Your Visit***

   -Do not touch your skin with your palms

    -Do not shower for 8 hours. 

    -Avoid ALL contact with liquids of any sort until your first shower.  

     -Use hand sanitizer and paper towel, should you need to cleanse your palms.

    -Avoid EXTENDED time in pools and try to avoid jacuzzi's. 

     -It is possible that some color may transfer to clothing or bed sheets.  The solutions are water soluble and will remove easily in the wash if washed within a day or two.

    -It is crucial to use a quality moisturizer every day after you have had a spray tan*  Most drug store brand lotions contain mineral oil, petroleum, heavy alcohol, sodium lauryl sulfates, phthalates, preservatives & loads of other chemicals which may strip the tan. 

Bali Glow carries an all natural, 98% plant based ANTI-AGING body moisturizer that has specifically been formulated to seal in your tan and help maintain its longevity*  Ask your provider for more details.

     ​​-Use a fresh razor ​with a moisture strip.

      -Once you start to see the tan fade, fully exfoliate.

     -Your tan should last an average of a week if you have prepared the skin properly and have followed the aftercare.

​     -Repeat the same steps when preparing for your next visit.  Be sure to remove ALL color to start fresh*

     -And finally.. Drink lots of water to maintain hydration.  Healthy looking skin starts from the inside out!
