Shower and exfoliate at least 2 hours before your appointment. This gives your pores time to close for the tan to stick perfectly. This shower you should not be using any in shower moisturizing soaps, dove soaps or oils so no residue is left on skin. 

Exfoliating with a wash cloth or loofah & no products is preferred. 

Shaving the day before is ideal if time is on your side. Do not use any shaving gels, creams or a razor with a moisturizing strip after doing a full body exfoliation.

 Clean & product free skin is a must so you must come to your appointment with NO lotion on which means a good prep vs a quick shower after work. Once you have had your last shower before your appointment do not apply anything.

You may spray tan in the undergarment of your choice. 

(Most women go with just panties).  Must go home in lose clothing such as summer dresses, sweat pants or anything else not to tight.  


For the first night only if you have not done your first rinse off we recommend sleeping in pants. This will avoid skin on skin contact well its still developing. 

Our solutions require an 8-12 hour development time depending on what custom mix we make for you. We ask that you be prepared to not shower for 12 hours after. Do not use anything but water  or shave your first rinse off. 

As soon as you have taken off the bronzing layer in your first shower you are set in. Moisturize daily as much as you want. The more the better.

While you have a spray tan avoid body scrubs, loofahs, Dove products & bar soap. These can inhibit how your tan lasts. 

A spray tan is 50% our application & 50% your prep & aftercare we guarantee all tans if proper prep is followed. 

We can not guarantee our spray tan services if you come in with self tanner on your skin.  


Q: How long will the tan last?

A: Your tan should last around 7 days but this will be affected by how you take care of it. Also putting on lotion everyday will help keep your skin hydrated, happy and healthy. The healthier your skin, the longer your tan will last.

Q: What kind of events do people get spray tans for?

A: Weddings, Graduation, Vacation, Photo shoots, Family Events, Christmas Parties, Birthday's, Stagette's, Pageants, Night On The Town, Everyday Lifestyle. 

Q: What happens the day of my spray tan?

A: Once sprayed, you will have an instant bronzed look produced by the bronzer in the solution , and the tan will develop over the next 8-12 hours at this time you will gain around 2 shades. After showering you will lose one full shade and it’s normal for the bronzer to wash away leaving the developed tan. 

Q: What is the different between a Custom Spray Tan & Express Spray Tan?

A: Our custom spray tans are our signature service. We are able to create you a custom color to best suit your skin tone which needs 12 hours of developing time and lasts around 7 days. Our express spray tans are great for same day events if you need to shower the bronzer off in 4-6 hour. It will appear you have color when rinsing but does still take 12 hours to fully develop. There is also 2 color options for the express vs around 15 with our custom spray tans.

Q: I had bad experience with a spray tan before. Should I assume that spray tanning is not for me?

A: No, there are many factors that could affect your tan; the skill of the technician (if tanned with hand held gun), the quality of solution, your skin condition at the time, not prepping or also the quality of product used. 98% of our customers have absolutely no issues with there tan. If you leave your appointment with a full even coverage that means we got your entire body covered. If you notice spots that may look "missed" after you shower something has caused it not to develop. Example a rare situation but something as little as Aunt Flo can throw off a skin balance for someone but not for many others. If you ever have an issue with a tan from Glitz please contact us immediately as we guarantee all our services.

Q: How brown will I get?

A: Everybody’s skin develops its own individual color. Some people go a few shades darker brown, some may just get a glow. We have multiple solutions to choose from. We will also do a consultation with you when you come in to match your desired tone.

Q: Does the solution have unpleasant smell like some self-tanners on the market?

A: No! The solutions we use has the newest technology in odor inhibitors that eliminates the dreaded "sunless smell". 

Q: Can I spray tan while pregnant?

A: At Glitz we tend to spray tan many mommies to be on a weekly basis. DHA doesn't penetrate the skin or enter the bloodstream. As your body goes through a lot of change during pregnancy we would recommend a trial prior to a special occasion to ensure that the tan sticks to your skin. If you are having a high risk pregnancy please consult a physician first. If you want more information on spray tanning while pregnant please contact us. 

Q: I have other beauty services booked which should I do first?

A: Spray tans should be one of the last services you get before an event if possible. If you have pedicures, manicures,waxing or eyelash extension appointments it should be done before your spray tan. If you are doing pedicures or manicures the same day as your appointment make sure NO lotions are applied.

Q: Is it okay to go without a bathing suit?

A: Yes, if you do not want tan lines you can get your spray tan from just underwear to nude. It will be a girl spray tanning you.

Q: How long does a spray tan take to get done?

A: The spray tan process from walking in the door, getting sprayed and drying is about 15 minutes.

Q: Will spray tan protect me from getting a sunburn?

A: No! When going into the sun, you must wear sun protection. The only way it will help to protect you is that you will not be tempted to sun bake since you will have your tan already.

Q: What if I have a very fair skin that has never been able to tan?

A: Hey, this is exactly why the spray tanning was designed in the first place, for people that could not tan by any other method! Most probably you will get a fantastic color with spray tan! Of course, people that tan easily will tan too.

Q: I have an event coming up when should I get my spray tan done?

A: We recommend 1-3 days before an event. For brides we do recommend 2-3 days before. You will need to have a minimum of one shower before your event to get the instant bronzer off as that is when your spray tan looks the best & is set in to your skin. 

Q: Does the solution come off on clothing ?

A: The day you get your spray tan the odd time people see a bit of spray come off on your clothes inside. The solutions are water soluble and will come off in the wash and do not stain. Once you have your first shower it is set in and you will not see any spray tan products coming off on your clothing. If you do still see a bit coming off after your first shower that means you haven't rinsed the bronzer off well enough or on rare occasions the skin PH balance can be off. 

Q: What is the difference between an airbrush spray tan and a booth?

A: Airbrush technicians control the amount of solution on the hands, feet and other areas that need to appear more natural especially in the winter we change up our routine to adjust for dry skin. Also, the breathing factor is much better. You can breath normal and not worry about solution being sprayed out all over the place. A booth just sprays out & you hope that you are standing in the correct position.

Q: Is it okay to go without a bathing suit?

A: Yes, if you do not want tan lines you can get your spray tan from just underwear to nude. It will be a girl spray tanning you.

Q: Will I spray tan evenly if I have hair on my legs/arms?

A: For the best results shaving or waxing what you normally maintain before hand is always better for the tan. 

Q: I am going on vacation will it come off in the water faster?

A: The best thing to help your tan last longer when going in pools or hot tubs is wearing a waterproof sunblock. It helps protect your skin from the chemicals. You will not physically see your spray tan coming of in the pool or ocean. 

Q: Does a spray tan cover up my tan lines?

A: spray tans can cover up tan lines up to 70-80%, The result will be dependent on the width and shade difference between the tan line and your natural skin tone.

Q: Can I get a spray tan when I have tattoos?

A: Yes! It does not effect the coloring of tattoo's and will just look like a normal tan would from the sun. If you have a fresh tattoo wait at least 10 days. 

Q: Can I wear make up the day of my spray tan?

A: We recommend you do not wear any make up to your appointment. A few hours after your appointment you are able to put on light make up if needed.

Q: What is a CBD spray tan?

A: When applied topically and infused in a spray tan the CBD will penetrate

through the pores and epidermis, absorb into the body to react with its natural cannabinoid receptors ultimately resulting in balanced healthy skin and calming effects. If you have ever red the benefits CBD in any beauty product the possibilities are endless. 

The best color is after your first shower - Once you do wash up, you’re going to notice that some of your tan is coming off but don't panic — this is just the cosmetic bronzing solution used in the tan.

Dark spray tans don't work for every skin type - We strive on giving the most natural looking spray tan possible by recommending what is BEST for your natural skin tone. What may have worked for your friend may not work for you. We want you to have a tan you love for the entire week which also means we may say NO if you want to be way darker then we recommend for your skin type because at Glitz we don't do "fake".

What you use for body wash effects your tans development - A lot of the time if someone is not getting close to a week out of there spray tans or may have an area that didnt take  it is most likely the type of products used for prep * after care.  There is a list above of what products should be avoided during any spray tan. We also recommend sulfate free.

Waiting days to have your first shower will not make your tan last longer or make you darker - We always let our clients know to take there first shower 12-24 hours after the spray tan was applied. Leaving the bronzer on to long (24 Hours+) does not benefit you and can dry out your skin. The color looks the best and is your set in colour after rinsing the developing layer off.
