+ HOW A SPRAY TAN WORKS:

A Lion in the Sun's master certified technician will spray the tanning formula onto your skin with a professional system by Norvell, the leader in the sunless industry. The active ingredient is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is a simple non-toxic sugar that is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets or sugar cane. DHA causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids on the outermost layer of your skin. This reaction causes the color of the skin to change, producing a beautiful and natural tan. DHA starts to react with the skin within two hours of application and continues to do so for a total of 18-24 hours. As your dead skin cells are worn away from the surface, your tan will begin to fade.

+ HOW LONG WILL A SPRAY TAN LAST?

Depending on your skin type and daily activities, spray tans normally last 4-5 days. You can easily double the life of the spray by simply using our specially formulated post-tan maintenance products that will keep your color even and gorgeous for days longer. These are available for purchase at the time of your appointment.

+ HOW TO PREP YOUR SKIN FOR A SPRAY TAN

-Shave at least 8 hours prior to session
-Arrive at your appointment with skin that is clean and free of lotion, deodorant, perfume, and makeup. An exfoliating mitt is included with your custom spray tan so if you are coming straight from work or school, that's ok too!
-Wear dark, loose fitting clothing
-Wear sandals if possible
-Waxing and pedicures should be done at least 24 hours before a spray tan
-If rain is in the forecast, dress to be fully covered with loose closed toe shoes
