Frequently Asked Questions!

If your question is not listed, or you would like more information please contact us anytime!

What do I wear?

Most people wear only bottoms. However, this is a personal decision, so wear whatever you’re comfortable with, just remember that the tanning solution may stain. If you’d like you can wear a bathing suit or we offer disposable bras and panties if you prefer. Typically, the product will wash out because it’s water-soluble. Men must wear bottoms. You are sprayed by hand by your spray tan artist, not in a booth,

What do I do before my tan?

Do all hair removal and exfoliation the night before your tan. Doing the same day as your tan can result in the tan absorbing into your skin in little polka dots. Shower the morning of your spray tan using ONLY WATER. No soaps or scrubs. Do NOT moisturize, do NOT put on perfume or deodorant after your shower. You can wear makeup if necessary, but we will remove it prior to the sunless-tanning session. The less product the better! Any product on your body from soaps to moisturizers will leave a barrier on your skin not allowing the spray tan to set on your skin properly. Products to avoid is NO DOVE SOAPS especially in the form of a bar. Nothing with a lot of fragrance such as Bath and Body Works and also NO coconut oil. The oil can leave a residue on your skin causing streaking.

What about after my tan?

Immediately following the session you’ll be asked to “dry off” for about 3-4 minutes. We recommend not showering, exercising, swimming, steam rooming, hot yoga, etc. for at least 8-12 hours to ensure you don’t diminish the tans intensity. Your first shower is going to be a quick rinse off with water to remove any guide color. This will be 6-8 hours after your tan, or 1-3 after a rapid tan. Please wear loose fitting, dark clothes and sandals (no socks or runners) after your spray tan. After you have showered be sure to moisturize and wear your SPF! You look and feel tanned, but you are not and you will burn.

Can I get a spray tan at the same appointment as my lashes?

Yes! We will do your lashes first and then your tan. The lashes will be cured before your tan, but if you like to be extra protective there are disposable eye covers available.

Will I be orange or end up an 8 like Ross?

Absolutely not. Our solution is made with the highest quality DHA that is derived from organic sugar beets and sugar cane instead of beta-carotene (carrot extract). This guarantees that your tan will be golden brown. And since your tan is customized and hand applied by a professional, there is no counting Mississippi-ly to worry about!

How long does it last?

Tans can last 7 – 14 days depending on skin type, aftercare and hydration. Keep your tan moisturized, keep your body hydrated and avoid long exposure to water, chlorine, sweat and shaving for longest results.

Can I get a tan if I am pregnant or nursing?

With any service please consult your doctor if you have any concerns. In general the spray tan is safe, if nursing you will want to cover your breasts so not to have the tan rub off on your littles face! DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) acts only on the top layer of the skin. NUDA’s formulas are non-toxic and there is no evidence that demonstrates the harmfulness of DHA.

Is the product vegan/cruelty free?

All NUDA products are 100% vegan and cruelty-free. They are only tested on NUDA babes!
