Before Your Session
  • Shower, Exfoliate, Shave (night before preferably) - come to session with dry, clean skin.
  • Be dry for at least 30 minutes before your session.
  • Remove moisturizer, body lotion, perfume, deodorant, makeup and sunscreen.
  • Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing, bathing suit, flip-flops to salon.
  • Do not wear white clothing, tight clothing, bras, wristbands, leather, nylon, wool, silk, jewelry.

How long does it take?

Please allow 20 minutes for your In Studio Session and 30 minutes for your Mobile Session. If you are having a mobile session, I will arrive approximately 10 minutes before your session to setup.


How dark will I get?

Your tan depends on your skin tone. Everyone’s skin is different and therefore will appear lighter or darker. You will be several shades darker.

Do you take same day/walk-in appointments?

If my schedule allows, I can take same day appointments, unfortunately I do not take walk-ins.


Are you mobile only?

No, I have a studio located at 2000 E. Renfro Street in Burleson.


How long does the tan last?

Typically sunless tans last 5-7 days. The makers of Infinity Sun boast 7-14 days with an average of 10 days. Most of my clients see between 10-14 days. Your tan can last longer depending on how you take care of your skin and if you use maintenance products. Other products not recommended will cause your tan to fade quicker. Like any beauty routine, proper preparation, skin care and upkeep are required to make the most of your GottaGettaTan Custom Spray Tan.


Will I turn orange?

No, unlike the “booth” sprays that can leave you with an orange tint, our sunless solution gives you a completely natural looking tan, just like you stepped off the beach.


What do I wear; do I have to be nude?

No, if you choose you may wear bra/panties or old swimwear. Just know that if you do, you will have tan lines. So, if you are tanning for an event, make sure that your tan lines won’t interfere with your attire. Men must wear shorts, swim trunks, etc.

After your session: wear dark, loose fitting clothing (tank top, jogging pants/shorts)


What is the minimum age; does a parent have to be present?

There isn’t a minimum age requirement, but please discuss with your Sunless Specialist if you are inquiring about a session for a minor. Parents can be present if they wish and maybe required to be present for a very young child.


What is the difference between a Custom Spray Tan and booth sprayers?

Custom spray tanning is so much better than a booth because it is customized and hand applied. You don’t have to worry about streaking or choking from all the overspray. There is very little overspray with your custom spray tan session and you are given very detailed instructions for before and after care so that you have a perfect, glowing tan.

What can I use on my skin afterwards?

  • For optimal results avoid showering, rain, sweating and exposure to water for 8-12 hours.
  • Use Infinity Sun products to increase the duration of your custom spray tan. Daily moisturizing is keep to extend your tan, at least twice a day. We recommend using our moisturizing sunless extender with enhancing bronzers. You will see a noticeable difference in how vibrant your tan looks and how much longer it lasts.
  • Scrubbing, exfoliating, shaving and waxing will shorten the life of your tan. Only exfoliate before a tanning session to help remove remnants of an old tan.

Does it matter if you are on medications?

Yes, please discuss all medications with your Sunless Specialist prior to scheduling your session. Certain medications can cause the sunless solution to not adhere to your skin.


What can I use on my skin afterwards?

• Avoid showering, rain, sweating, and exposure to water for 8-12 hours.
• Do not wear white clothing for at least 24 hours.
• Do not wear super tight clothing.
• Moisturize entire body twice daily for the duration of your custom spray tan.
• Use Infinity Sun products to increase duration of your custom spray tan.
• Avoid Jacuzzis, hot tubs, chlorine, and very long hot showers.
• Tanning beds and sunbathing are o.k., but apply sunscreen outdoors.
• Do not use lotions that have alpha hydroxyl on the bottle as it will exfoliate your skin faster.


How long before I can shower?

It is best to wait at least 8 to 12 hours before bathing or showering, but longer is better.


When can I shave?

You can shave after your 1st shower, taking care to shave gently.


Where do you spray tan me; is it done in a private setting?

Yes, if you choose a mobile session you will be in the comfort of your home. If you choose an in-salon session, we have a private room. I need access to an electrical outlet and a well lit area big enough to spray. The shower is a potential location and is easy clean up.


Who will spray tan me?

Candice, the owner, is a Certified Sunless Specialist and has been tanning clients since 2002. In fact, she was the first in Burleson and Johnson County to offer sunless services.


Can you be pregnant?

Yes, because the solution is a natural product. We always ask that you discuss your plans with your doctor and receive their approval prior to scheduling your session.


Can I bring my child with me?

We do not offer child care services. We recommend that children are not left unattended during your session.


What if I mess up my tan?

In the rare event that you mess up your tan, my Touch-Up Policy is In-Salon only, and the cost is half-price.


Will my sunless tan protect me from the sun?

No, the product doesn’t have an SPF in the ingrediants. Ifyou will be out in the sun you will need to wear sun protection and re-apply often.
