Tanning Tips

Use these simple tips to make the most out of your Mystic Tan™ experience:


Before Tanning:

  • Do not shave 24 hours prior to visit.
  • Shower and exfoliate. Use a body scrub to remove excess dead skin cells so the products adheres evenly.
  • Spend a little extra time exfoliating areas with thick skin, such as knees, elbows and ankles.
  • If skin is dry, use light lotion at least 2 hours prior.
  • Apply petroleum jelly to your cuticles and nail beds to ward off excess color buildup in those areas.
  • Moisturize the palms of your hands to help offer a barrier so you get a natural-looking tan. Just be sure to blend the edges well for a natural fade line.
  • Remove makeup.
  • Avoid wearing perfume or deodorant as these can lead to blotching and flaking.

During Your Session:

  • Wear undergarments to protect sensitive areas.
  • Use protective eyewear.
  • Keep your mouth closed and use lip balm to protect your lips.
  • Avoid inhaling the product through your nose, and use plugs to keep your nose closed.
