Pre Tan 


  • Exfoliate at least 24 hours before your tan. Pay close attention to knees, elbows, and heels.

  • Shower, shave, wax, and have manicures at least two hours before your treatment.

  • Make sure to thoroughly wash off any oils, lotions, deodorant, perfumes, and makeup. They will act as a barrier against the solution and stop the color from developing properly.

  • Refrain from using Dove soap before or after the tan. The products in this brand will create streaks and cause discoloration.​

  • Remove all jewelry, wear loose dark clothing and open-toed shoes (sandals are best). If it is going to rain, plan to cover up and bring an umbrella.

Post Tan 


  • Allow the tan to dry completely.


  • Refrain from crossing your legs and wearing tight clothing, including a fitted bra for at least two hours.


  • For best results wear dark, loose clothing while your tan is developing. The Alice dress was specially made for after the spray tan and will preserve your color and offer comfort.


  • Do NOT shower, perspire excessively, or apply moisturizer after the Skin Finish application.


  • Once you are okay to shower, thoroughly rinse with warm water until it’s clear. Only use soap on essential areas. It’s important not to use a heavy soap, the residue could strip and fade the tan unevenly.


  • Avoid using a loofah or rough washcloths. The tan towel is recommended for cleaning the body and preserving the skin finish tan.   


  • Please keep in mind that your tan will continue to slightly develop after you have showered.


  • After each shower, pat the skin dry with a towel rather than rubbing it. Rubbing creates a form of exfoliation, which will prematurely fade your tan.


  •  We recommend you avoid chlorinated pools, jacuzzis, and saunas, as their water will fade the tan prematurely.


  • Moisturize at least twice a day, once when you get out of the shower. Use a thick moisturizer that doesn’t contain heavy oils. Keeping moisturized will slow down the body’s natural process of exfoliating cells.


  • Only exfoliate towards the end of the tan, around day seven, this will also prep the skin for another fabulous tan.


  • Drink plenty of water. It doesn’t seem obvious with spray tanning, but it’s extremely important to keep the skin hydrated. This will ensure a longer tan and even fading.






  • Why does my face fade faster?
    The skin on your face is thinner than the skin on other parts of the body, so it exfoliates faster. It is also more exposed to the environment and endures more frequent washes. We recommend using our rose water tan to obtain a longer facial tan.

  • Will Skin Finish tan protect me from the sun?
    Unfortunately, there isn’t any SPF in the solution. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t working on it...

  • What do I wear during my Skin Finish tan?
    Depends on your personal preference and your comfort level. You can choose to go fully naked or wear undergarments if you like tan lines. It’s recommended to not wear a swimsuit, as the strings tend to get in the way, or lace panties, which can create strange lines from the fabric. We can provide disposable underwear.

  • How does it work when you come to my house or hotel room?
    Our Skin Finish artist will bring a portable, pop-up tent to be set up in your bathroom or in an area with sufficient lighting. There is no mess for you to clean since we do not tan in the shower. The tent will catch any overspray, protecting your belongings and giving you privacy.

  • How long does my tan last?
    If you take care of it, it will take care of you. Typically the tan last 7-10 days to two weeks, based on the solution type. The active ingredient in tanning solution is DHA (dihydroxyacetone), which reacts with your skin cells resulting in a bronzing effect. As your skin goes through its natural exfoliation process, these dead skin cells shed, though not all shed at the same time. You can usually counteract this by moisturizing with our gradual tan extending lotion.

  • How many days before an event should I book my appointment?
    To ensure the perfect looking tan, we recommend booking a Le Luxe Skin Finish appointment 1-2 days before your event.

  • Is your formula really organic?
    The formula we use is made of the highest quality natural ingredients for a healthy, safe, and flawless tan. None of our products contains carrot-fermented extract, which means no orange tone and the unpleasant scent is nonexistent.
