"Before" Organic Airbrush Tan"After" a natural bronzed tan. A perfect sunless tanning solution!   



Pre-tan instructions: exfoliate a day or two/weekly before your tanning session, stay hydrated for your skin by drinking your daily required dose of water and moisturize consistently the week before your organic airbrush tan. This will prepare the skin for a longer lasting organic airbrush tan and slough off old skin cells ensuring a flawless organic tan. A moisturizer like Shea butter is great for your skin. This is also a good time to schedule your manicures and pedicures "before" your tanning appointment as your tan will literally be rubbed off from the knees and elbows down if scheduled after you are already tan. Finally,use sunscreen if need be to avoid sunburns before your tan.

The day before instructions: a great day to exfoliate, shave (today) and moisturize before your organic airbrush tan.

"The day of" instructions: ***shower hours before your appointment with an all natural soap or gel. (Avoid any soaps or moisturizers that contain oils as they can act as a barrier to your tan.) Hot showers and shaving open your pores decreasing the DHA/tan that is absorbed therefore its imperative to do so hours before your appointment if you do decide to take a hot bath or shower.

If you have to shower right before your appointment then only take a luke warm shower again so your pores are not opened decreasing the DHA effectiveness and avoid shaving.

Be ready and on time for the organic spray tan session with clean skin and no lotion anywhere on the body, makeup or deodorant as this will act as a barrier to your bronzed tan. (Eye makeup is fine.) You can however add lotion to dry spots like elbows and knees.

It's best to wear dark, loose fitting clothing afterwards to allow your skin to breath and dry properly. The dark clothing ensures that any bronzed tan solution that may have rubbed off is not visible. Dark sheets on the bed after you tan is also advised.


NO SHOWERING for at least 3 hours (rapid tan) or 8/24 hours depending on the solution you chose for your tanning session.

NO PHYSICAL ACTIVITY that would make you sweat or show friction rub. Your tan can show your sweat drops/lines.

NO DOG LICKING. Dog's love to lick as there is beet sugar in the solution making it sweet. Keep your dog at bay or wear loose fitting pants to protect your tan. That lick mark will show!

NO SITTING ON LEATHER COUCHES with bare tanned skin. PUT a sheet down anywhere you decide to sit.

NO BENDING YOUR ARMS for longer periods of time at the computer desk. A white mark could show in the bends of your arms.

REMINDER: Water is your enemy on the day of your organic airbrush tan as it can show the water streak. You want to keep your skin dry until your first shower. "Run" like the plague if there is any water splashing/raining in your vicinity.

After-tan instructions: moisturize up to twice a day (once in morning with a tan extender and once in the evening with shea butter) as this will slow down the natural shedding of skin cells and make your bronzed tan last longer. I highly recommend the South Seas Tan Extender that you can order online as most experience an extra week out of their tan. Do not exfoliate any until your organic airbrush tan has faded. Use an all natural soap/gel sparingly, try to stay out of water for long periods of time to avoid fading and blot dry with a towel as opposed to rubbing yourself dry (rubbing the tan off) when you get out of the shower. Finally, Enjoy your customized organic airbrush tan at Austin Organic Tan and please reach out if you have any questions or concerns! :)
