Frequently Asked Questions

Questions & Answers:

  • Why not sunbathe to achieve bronzed skin?

The sun emits harmful UV radiation. Exposure to UV radiation causes premature aging of the skin. As a result, fine lines and wrinkles form even sooner. More importantly, sun exposure is the number one cause for skin cancer. Please wear sunblock in the sun! Better safe than sorry!

  • Are there any benefits to spray tanning?

Yes!!! Not only do you transform into a bronze goddess...A spray tan evens out skin tone, masks skin imperfections, makes you appear thinner/toned, and gives you a healthy glow. 

Sugar Skin's spray tan also nourishes your skin. Natural enzymes repair dry skin and support your skin's natural hydration process. Our formula contains hydrating vitamins and antioxidants including. Aloe vera, Green tea, Vitamins C & E, tomato, cranberry, caffeine, and more.

  • Could I become orange or streaky?

An orange spray tan is the result of low-quality product. Sugar Skin's tanning solution contains the highest quality DHA and is universal for all skin tones so that you don't become orange. 

Streaks are caused by inadequate preparation of the skin prior to a spray tan (eg. not exfoliating before your session). If you take the proper steps to prepare for your tan, you will not come out streaky. 

First-timers are often scared of becoming a streaky oompa loompa. As long as you prepare for your spray tan, you will love it! 

  • What about that dreaded "alligator" skin? 

Alligator skin is a result of dry skin. You want to make sure to moisturize daily for at least a week prior to your spray tan treatment. One of the most important steps to caring for your spray tan is to moisturize FREQUENTLY. When you wake up, moisturize. After you shower, moisturize. Before bed, moisturize. If your skin is properly nourished, you will not get alligator skin. Just remember, wait 8 hours after your treatment before moisturizing  and use an oil-free moisturizer.

  • How do I pay?

Upon booking your appointment, you will be asked for your CC info for a $15 deposit. If you must cancel your appointment, you must do so at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time in order to have the $15 refunded. The $15 deposit will go towards the cost of your spray tan so that you only have to pay the remaining balance upon your scheduled appointment. Payment is collected prior to the spray tan application. Cash and credit cards are accepted.

  • How long will my appointment take?

The actual spray tan treatment will take  only 5-15 minutes. However, with the setup, consolation, and take-down of all the equipment, expect the technician to be in your home for 45-60 minutes.  

  • Will I stink after my treatment?

NO! Because we use the highest quality DHA, our formula does not leave that dreaded "spray tan smell". There is a light and natural raspberry almond fragrance (nut-allergen free).

  • How long after the treatment until I am tan?

Due to the cosmetic bronzer in our formula, you will be tan right after your treatment! However, your "true" tan will continue to develop for up to 24 hours after your treatment. Remember, you will get look way darker before you get lighter. When you take your first shower, your tan will even out and lighten up!

  • How do I make my tan last as long as possible?

Moisturize FREQUENTLY (with an oil-free moisturizer). Do NOT scrub in the shower. Use an oil-free body wash. Do NOT take long, hot showers. When you get out of the shower, PAT your skin dry. If you can, stay away from the pool and saltwater. If you follow all these preserving tips, you tan will last 5-7 days.

  • So...I can't wear ANY makeup to my appointment?!

You can get away with wearing some... You may wear ONLY eyeliner and mascara to your treatment. Just be aware that you won't be able to take it off until 8 hours after your treatment. 

Immediately after your treatment, it is safe to  apply any POWDER makeup. 

  • Do I get naked for my spray tan?

If you want to...sure! Remember, our technicians have seen it all.... If you're not comfortable with spraying in the nude, you may wear underwear. However, if you do wear undies, realize you will have a tan line. If you wish to wear underwear, make them dark colored.

  • I just got what do I do?

I personally like to just sit around the house... Do things online, watch some movies, etc. You have to make sure you don't sweat or get wet for 8 hours. No walking in the rain, puking babies, washing dishes...YAY! 

If you have plans to be out and about, we recommend the Post Tan Spray to "seal the deal" and lock your spray tan in.

  • What about spray tan parties? Do we get a discount?

A spray tan party is when a group of friends all get a spray tan together (eg. bridal party). 

A technician comes to your "party", and sprays all of you one after the other. If the spray tan party is comprised of 5 or more, the price of each spray tan is only $40!

  • Is Sugar Skin mobile only? Or is there a salon location I could go to?

At the time being, Sugar Skin is a mobile service only. The most luxurious experience is offered in the comfort of your own home. :-) Our technicians bring EVERYTHING needed for your spray tan. All you need to do is prepare your skin!

  • What do I need to have ready for my spray tan treatment?

The main responsibility the client has is to PREPARE their skin for the spray tan (e.g. exfoliating). 

The technician has all other materials you may need during the treatment. The technician will come prepared with towels, lotion, wipes, hair caps, hair ties, lip balm, baby powder, etc. 

All you need to do is prepare your skin so that it is free of any barriers. 

If you're not comfortable with tanning in the nude, you will also need dark colored underwear/bikini. Any attire you wish to put on after your treatment should be loose fitting and dark-colored.
