On the day of your appointment
Shower and exfoliate using a loofa. If you choose to use a body exfoliating product be to choose an oil-free product. Exfoliation will ensure optimal results. Whether this is your first spray tan or your tenth, it is very important to exfoliate before each session. Try to avoid using bar soap which can leave residue on your skin.
