Tan with Kare

Options Salon & Spa has offered the TAN with KARE spray tanning system since 2009.  Our Certified Tanning Specialists can create that perfect sun-kissed look using this botanical spray tan.  Your tan will be customized as light or as dark as you want, and gives your skin a natural looking tan that is not orange or streaky.  This is a healthy alternative to tanning that will last up to 14 days depending on the individual and at-home care.  

The Rapid Tan is now available!. This 4-8 hour spray tan is the ultimate convenience for clients on the go. Shower in 2-4 hours to obtain a light tan, 4-6 hours for a medium tan and 7- 8 hours for a darker tan & 8-10 HOURS FOR VERY DARK TAN RESULTS. (Not recommended to leave on beyond 10 hours) or you only need to wait between 2-4 hour until you rinse.

PRE Spray Tan “Kare”

  • Exfoliate, shave and DO NOT moisturize the day of your tan.
  • Wear loose, dark slip on clothes and shoes.  NO tight clothing, jeans, socks, etc.
  • Workout, wax, and receive any other spa service before you tan.
  • Consider wearing a strapless bra if appropriate (during tan or to wear after tan so there are no marks left on your shoulders from putting a bra back on while the tan is drying).

POST Spray Tan “Kare”

  • Remain dry for 8-12 hours, face and hands included. 
  • Take short, warm showers.
  • Moisturize 1-2 times a day. Use unscented soaps and moisturizers. 
    • We recommend Toot Sweet Soap Shack Naked Unscented Lotion and Unscented goat’s milk soap.
  • Soaps with a high PH will fade your tan quickly.  These include Safeguard, Coast, Irish Spring, Dial, etc.
  • Pat skin dry – DON’T rub.
  • Perfume and Cologne should go on clothing or the back of your hairline.
  • Chlorine or prolonged time in water will fade your tan more quickly.
  • Remember a Spray Tan is “paint” on the skin, so choose your activity wisely.
  • SASSY “Touch-Up Spray” is available for purchase and is great for body touchups – chest, crook of arms, etc.

What to wear during your Tan…

You will be in a private room with only your Certified Spray Tanning Specialist.  You can wear an old or dark colored bathing suit, underwear and/or bra, or nothing at all.  Remember, our Specialists are professionals; there is no need to be nervous about receiving this service.  Bodies come in different shapes and sizes and your Specialist is looking to ensure the tan is applied evenly.
