Sunless Tanning Tip: Preparing for Your Sunless Tan

Share This

Do you want a glowing, confidence-boosting tan without the UV rays? You’re only minutes away from looking and feeling amazing with the VersaSpa Sunless Tanning system at Sun Tan City. But before you step into the booth, make sure you are ready for your session with these four easy steps.

Tan at the right time. You need to avoid water for at least 4-8 hours after you tan. If you can’t avoid splishing, splashing (or sweating) for that time, it’s probably not the best time to tan.

Exfoliate before your session to remove dead, dry skin cells. This allows the bronzing spray to absorb into fresh, clean skin. Your tan will not only be more even, but will last longer as well. We suggest using a light exfoliating and moisturizing body scrub in your morning shower. Try to avoid bar soaps or in-shower moisturizers, which could interfere with the bronzing process and bring about that dreaded “orange” color.


Skip the lotion and makeup. While moisturizing your skin in the days following your tanning session can make it last longer, applying moisturizers and lotions can interfere with the bronzing spray absorbing into your skin. If you do wear makeup the day of your tan, remove it before entering the VersaSpa to get the most even tan on your face. Also, use deodorant sparingly. Believe it or not, it could interact with the spray and turn your armpits a not-so-fab shade of green.


Wear lose-fitting, dark clothing to your session. Also, be sure to remove all jewelry and leave it off until your tan is set. This will prevent your clothes and jewelry from rubbing against your skin and smudging your tan or your clothing being stained by the tanning spray.

That’s it – you are ready to tan! If it’s your first time trying sunless Sunday through Wednesday, it’s free! And, if you’ve already tried (and loved) sunless, we have something for you, too!
