ABOUT OUR TAN
We wanted Undressed Tans to be the best custom airbrush tan you have ever had. A tan so good that you feel your best undressed. We have tested so many different brands and solutions for over a year on different skin tones and types, and we are happy to say that we have found some that have surpassed our expectations. All of our solutions are made with 100% natural DHA and are PETA approved.
When you choose to get a spray tan with us, you will be educated on proper maintenance and care to ensure you can get the most out of your tan. We will also help you select the perfect color for you and your skin tone/type. Whether you want a "barely there" tan or more of a "back from the islands" look, we have you covered! We truly have the most beautiful and exclusive blends: Au Naturel, In the Buff, and Birthday Suit.
So many people ask, "Why should I spray instead of laying out in the sun?" When you choose to spray tan, you are choosing a safe alternative to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. People who lay out in the sun or in tanning beds increase their chances of getting melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) from UVB rays and currently the leading cause of death in women 25 - 30 years old! UVA rays can prematurely age you and your skin, resulting in wrinkles and leather-like skin. Choose the healthy alternative. Choose to spray tan.
Have you ever heard the saying, "If you can't tone, it tan it!" Well, there has never been a truer statement. Custom airbrush tanning can help you to define abs, hide cellulite and varicose veins, and give you a healthy, youthful glow.
We hope you love our custom airbrush tan as much as we do. Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions below and our instagram @undressedtans. We look forward to all of the comments and feedback with how you are feeling undressed.
HELP ME, I’M PALE…
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE TAN
First things first...when we say this, we need you to believe us because we have searched high and low to bring you the most perfect, bronze tan out there. That being said, our solutions are a tad different from others. If you follow our directions, you will have the most beautiful glow.
AFTER TANNING, WE RECOMMEND GOING HOME
Why? Well, with one of our solutions you turn anywhere from greenish brown, to purple brown, to kinda charcoal (depending on which solution perfectly fits what color you want to be) and YES this is normal! We have another solution that just makes you a nice dark bronze immediately after! With this one you don't have to go straight home but you do need to refrain from sweating or getting wet for at least 8 hrs.
Depending on the level of bronze you want and what solution we chose, you must shower between 1 to 3 hours after application or overnight!
AU NATUREL SOLUTION
If you want a barely there bronze, kind of like a base tan, then rinse off in 1 hour, for a medium bronze: rinse after 2 hours and for a darker bronze: rinse after 3 hours! Make sure you don't use soap, as this is just a rinse, but make sure you rinse off all of the cosmetic tanners (yes the green, violet and charcoal) color. You might have to use a bath sponge in some areas, just make sure not to use soap for this rinse. After you get out, do not apply any lotion.
Now, after you rinsed you might think "OMG! Where is my tan? I don't look like I got a spray tan!" This is normal, as all you did was wash off cosmetic bronzers. After 8 hours, you can shower and wash with soap. You can wait 10 hours or even 12, but just make sure you at least wait 8 hours after your first rinse to wash with soap. Keep in mind it takes 12-24 hours for our tan to develop.
IN THE BUFF AND BIRTHDAY SUIT SOLUTIONS
For our darker solutions, you can use soap and shower regularly after 8 hours from the completion of your spray tan. The solution might rub off on your sheets, but don’t worry, it will wash off when you wash your sheets. These solutions are best on day 2 (after 2 showers).
WHEN SHOULD I SPRAY?
We recommend getting sprayed 48 hours prior to an event. If your event is on a Saturday, book your appointment for Thursday! Your tan will last anywhere from 7-10 days after getting sprayed, depending on how well you take care of it and your lifestyle. We recommend short, and not super hot showers, as well as keeping your skin very hydrated with ultra moisturizing lotion.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS?
We currently have limited tanning hours: Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4pm - 8pm.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TAN?
We highly recommend that you shower and shave one day prior to your tanning session. If you chose to shower the day of your tan, avoid lotions so we can ensure the most even tan. Any soap is fine to shower with before your tan, however, we recommend you avoid an oil-based soap as this could create a barrier and you might not get the best results. Exfoliating is very important because it will help your tan last longer. The best way to do this is to use a sugar scrub in combination with an exfoliating glove/mitt.
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
This depends on several factors including your skin type, skin cycle, lifestyle, and care. It should last for the minimum of a week and has the potential to last as long as two weeks. The best thing that you can do to increase the longevity of your tan is to apply a hydrating moisturizer everyday or a tan extender lotion. Avoid exfoliating until you are ready for your next spray tan. Keep in mind that long showers/baths, hot tubs, and pools with chlorine will dry out the skin and can make the tan not last as long.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR WHEN GETTING SPRAYED?
We recommend you wear loose-fitting clothing so that way it will not be tight against your skin directly after your tan. Our tan does have cosmetic bronzers which sometimes you might see a mark where the cosmetic bronzer came off, however, that does not mean your tan will have a streak. Wearing loose fitting clothing helps prevent that.
While getting sprayed we offer disposable thongs if you would like, however, most of our clients tan fully “undressed” so there are no tan lines. The option is up to you though! If you feel more comfortable in your own underwear or bikini we will make it work!
HOW LONG DOES THE APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Our custom airbrush takes less than 20-30 min. Our technician will talk to you about the color you want to achieve and then pick a solution perfect for you. Once this is has been discussed you will start the tanning process which takes 10-15 min. Afterwards, we do some extra fluff to make sure you walk out with a perfect even glow!
HOW LONG BEFORE I SHOWER AGAIN?
That depends on what color you want! If you want a more natural light tan we recommend rinsing 1 hour after tanning. Prefer a medium shade rinse after 2 hours. Want to be a bronzed little bunny, then rinse after 3 hours. Btw when we say rinse we mean RINSE!! No soap! Just rinse off the cosmetic bronzers and then go about your day! You can then shower (yes with real soap) after 8 hours! Tans can take 10-24 hrs to fully develop!
So if you have an event on Friday night then come on Thursday! This way you can rinse and shower and tan activate!
WILL I BE ORANGE?
Absolutely not! We have tested numerous products to bring you the best! Our products have not turned any of our testers orange! Trust us, we tried a lot! Our solutions have a beautiful brown base so no need to worry about that 1980’s orange spray! We got ya covered!
IS SUNLESS TANNING SAFE FOR PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING WOMEN?
The active ingredient, DHA, has never been tested extensively on pregnant or breastfeeding women. We simply request that clients ask their doctor for approval before they book a session.
CAN I GET A SPRAY TAN WHILE HAVING A SUNBURN AND PEELING?
This might be the one time that we recommend that you don’t get a spray tan! Oh, and wear sunscreen next time!
WHY DOES THE TAN ON MY FACE FADE MUCH FASTER?
This is due to several reasons. First, facial skin is thinner than skin found on other parts of the body. The face is also more exposed to the environment and endures more frequent washing. In addition, makeup, anti-aging creams, astringents, etc. tend to break down the tan more quickly. So don’t be surprised if your facial tan only lasts for a couple of days. But that’s why they invented bronzing makeup, right?!
IF I AIRBRUSH TAN, DO I STILL NEED SUNSCREEN?
Yes! Sunless tanning does not contain SPF, so slather on up!
