Spray Tanning Tips

We are the EXPERTS in anything sunbed or sunless related. Below you find some tips and advice that’ll have everyone asking where you got that glow from. Always talk with a CocoBuns Tanning consultant to customize the perfect tan tailored just for you.


Prep Your Skin
For best results, exfoliate before your sunless session. You should focus on parts of your body that are the driest – elbows, knees, hands, feet, and the back of your ankles. We offer a variety of pre-tan exfoliaters and primers that will really help your color glow bronze.
Ensure that all make-up, deodorant, previous sunless tan, and moisturizes are removed off your skin and you’re glowing fresh and clean.
Put on some loose-fitting clothing and shoes, and come to the nearest CocoBuns Tanning salon!

At The Salon
Our CocoBuns Tanning experts will walk you through and gather some information from you to pick your desired shade. Our sunless equipment allows for a variety of customization options that can benefit each tanner. We have double dark options available for your body and just your legs to make a GLOWING difference than any other sunless booth available.
Whether you are looking for color for just your face, legs, or your entire body…our consultants will walk you through EVERY step that you will need to know before, during, and after your sunless session.

Wear a swimsuit, undergarments, or go NUDE for your sunless tan! You will be set up in one of our private and secluded tanning rooms that will allow you to disrobe to your level of comfort-ability.
Remove all jewelry and ensure that you’ve gotten our spray tan accessory packs, which include, a protective hair cap, sticky feet, nose plugs, and protective eye-wear.
Barrier cream is an IMPORTANT element to achieving the perfect bronzed glow. Apply a light layer of the cream – hands, fingers, feet, toes, sides of your feet, and your nail cuticles. Don’t worry…CocoBuns Tanning supplies all the barrier cream needed!

Just wait…
After you’ve been sprayed with your perfectly designed and customized sunless spray tan you want to wait AT LEAST 4 hours before showering, swimming, or sweating! The longer you wait to shower after your sunless tan…the DARKER you will get.
Most clients enjoy waiting up to 12-24 hours BEFORE taking their first shower for darker results. Ask a CocoBuns Tanning consultant for options on whether Cosmo or Regular spray tan is right for you.
Chlorine will quickly break down your spray tan. We suggest avoiding entirely, if possible.
Keep The Bronze Glow Going
Moisturize on the DAILY…

You want to ensure that you are moistruizing daily with a post-sunless product that is specifically designed to enhance your after sunless results. Talk with a CocoBuns Tanning expert on the best products that we carry…ESPECIALLY our Devoted Creations line. Beware: Drugstore and lotions purchased through non-salon professionals may contain oils and other ingredients that can shorten the life of your tan.

Scrub A Dub Dub with one of our body washes that DO NOT contain harsh soaps, exfoliants, or oils. We recommend using soaps that are especially formulated to extend the life of your tan – this will ensure that you are getting the longest lasting sunless spray POSSIBLE.
Avoid waxing, shaving, exfoliating, or pore stripping until you are ready for your next spray tan.

Follow these sunless tips & your spray tan can last anywhere from 5-9 days!
