Frequently asked questions
Why should I choose Sultry Sunless?
Sultry Sunless tested over 150 solutions from more than 20 different brands personally on family & friends before choosing which solutions to use on clients. Sultry Sunless is committed to using the most amazing solutions that are beautiful in color, long lasting & fade evenly with the ability to customize each shade for each individual client. A lot of places only carry 1, maybe 2 solutions; custom spray tans are not a “one size fits all”. Sultry Sunless carries a wide range of solutions that can be mixed, making them customizable for each client's desired result. Sultry Sunless also offers full body drying powder that is specially formulated for drying and setting your spray tan, allowing you to get dressed immediately following application, eliminating the post-spray sticky feeling. Sultry Sunless purchases our products directly from distributors/wholesalers to ensure the quality of our products.
What forms of payments are accepted?
Cash, Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Discover, PayPal and Venmo are accepted; no checks.
How long does a spray tan last?
Sultry Sunless tans should last 5-7 days (or longer) depending on your skin type, daily activities and maintenance. We shed skin cells daily, some faster than others differing from person to person. The right maintenance products are imperative to ensuring your spray tan lasts long and fades evenly. Sunless tanning moisturizers and cleansers can be purchased through Sultry Sunless.
When should I book my appointment?
It is always best to schedule as much in advance as possible. Wednesday-Friday are the busiest days for spray tanning, so to ensure an appointment date and time please text or email in advance. If you have an event on a Friday, the most ideal day to spray tan is 2 days prior; the same goes for a wedding. On the first day after your spray tan, you will be your darkest, so please keep this in mind when booking.

How do I prepare for my spray tan?
You want to scrub/exfoliate your body using a non-creamy, non-oily bath gel or soap. You should shave and/or wax at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Prior to arrival, you should be free of any lotions, perfumes, deodorant, jewelry and makeup.
What do I wear during my spray tan appointment?
Female clients are welcome to spray tan bare, with underwear and bra or old swimsuit. Just remember, whatever you wear will leave lines. So, if you are planning on wearing a backless dress, you do not want to wear a bra.
What do I wear after my spray tan appointment?
Loose clothing, preferably dark in color and NO tennis shoes, denim or tight leggings for 24 hours.
How soon can I apply lotion after spray tanning?
It is recommended to wait at least 8 hours after spray tanning before applying a moisturizer. You can apply a moisturizer after your initial rinse; however, this can lighten the final color as most solutions continue to develop up to 24 hours. If you apply lotion prior to your initial rinse, wash your hands well to keep the tanning solution from transferring to the palms of your hands.
How do I take care of my spray tan?
Regardless of the solution you choose (Rapid or Regular 8 hour solution) you will want your first shower to be a water rinse only (no soap or wash cloth). With a rapid solution, you have the convenience of rinsing off within 2-6 hours after your appointment. All other solutions can be rinsed off in 8-12 hours or you may choose to sleep in it overnight. After a minimum of 8 hours (Sultry Sunless recommends 12 hours), you may shower with a sulfate/paraben free cleanser and always moisturize. It is recommended to use a product that does not contain certain alcohols that can be drying to the skin and does not contain mineral oils (certain oils can strip the tan). Sultry Sunless carries travel size and full-size moisturizers and cleansers for all your spray tan maintenance needs. Please see the Prep & Tan Maintenance link for more information.
