Blondie's Salon - 720 6th St Clarkston, WA
Before Tanning
  • Wax 2 days before the tanning or shave the night before; Wax residue will block tanner absorption.
  • AVOID DOVE SOAP! It leaves a barrier on skin, quit using it a several days before your tan and while you are wearing your tan.
  • Take a shower and exfoliate properly using an exfoliating glove or mitt. Removing any dead cells and body oils will help the sunless tanner penetrate your skin and give you the best results. Do this 3 hours or more before you get sprayed! Not immediately before you come!
  • Do not use deodorant (it will turn green!!!!), makeup, perfume or moisturizers prior to the tanning. Lotions can act as a barrier & prevent the solution from contacting your skin.
  • You may tan in the garment of your choice or ladies may be sprayed nude. Bathing suits and underwear work well. Sorry but we do not spray tan men unless we have a male available to spray them.
  • Wear loose-fitting dark-colored clothing and flip-flops because some of the bronzer can rub off on your clothing and shoes can cause your feet to perspire affecting the results.
  • To avoid age spots, freckles, moles, etc. from getting darker, apply a cosmetic concealer over the spots or areas to block the solution and give an even appearance of color.   
Immediately After Tanning 
  • Do not wash your hands for least 4 hours.
  • Do not put on tight clothing for least 4 hours.
  • Do not exercise (first day). Perspiring immediately after tanning alters the chemical reaction of the solution changing its color.
  • Do not swim or immerse in water.
  • Do not apply moisturizer.
Maintain and Prolong your tan
  • Wait at least 8 hours before showering. Recommend next day. You may see color washing off the first time you shower, this is normal.
  • Rapid rinse tan now available. Rinse in 2 to 4 hours
  • Apply moisturizer after the shower and every day after your tanning session. This will help prolong your tan. Do not take long hot baths or showers.
  • Chlorine from a pool or Jacuzzi can cause your tan to fade faster.
  • Use our recommended soaps and lotions!
  • Do NOT use baby oil or Dove Soap. Most bar soaps will fade your tan fast!
