What's the difference between Palm Beach Tanning and South Sea Skincare?
Custom Color. Hand-held Application. -- We consult with you about the level of color you want to achieve and it isn't a cookie cutter formula. We use bronze and golden drops to add some shimmer or extra color. We use the South Sea Skincare systematic process to tan the entire body without causing splotching or runs. There is not over-spray or "wet" feel because of the quick-dry formula so there is no need to dry. Once you try a hand airbrush custom tan, there will be no turning back.
How long does it last?
Tans lasts around 7-9 days with proper hydration and care for your tan. If you use the Tahitian Tan Mist, you can prolong the life of your tan up to 10-14 days.
How long does it take?
It takes about 15 minutes to do the tan.
What are all the different formulas?

With 9% DHA, this solution is compatible with all skin types & produces the same flawless results as our Tahitian Tan Solution. 98% natural, unscented, paraben-free.
Express: Fiji Express Two Hour Tan has 13% DHA and the same fabulous color as our other solutions, but with the convenience of showering in 2-3 hours. Alcohol-free and ideal for all skin types. 98% natural, citrus scent, paraben-free.*Note: It is imperative that the client is aware that it still takes a minimum of 8 hours for development, i.e. if they shower in 2 hours, full color won’t develop until 6 hours later. Leave on 2 hours for a natural glow, or 3 hours for a darker color.
What do I do to prep my skin prior to tanning?
Any waxing, shaving, and threading should be done 24 hours prior to the tanning session. Exfoilate the face and entire body with a loofah and non oil based scrub. Try not to shower/shave right before tan. It is OK to wear lotion the day of your tan, especially if your skin is chronically dry.
What should I wear to my tanning session?
Wear dark colored clothing because the cosmetic bronzer may rub off slightly. You may wear dark colored swimsuit, undergarments, and flip flops to your session. Some do go topless when tanning.
Does it smell or is it sticky?
South Seas has developed a formula that dries instantly, so it has minimal tackiness and smell. The formulas have soft cucumber melon or mango fragrance.
What happens after my tan? How can I make my tan last?
Do not shower, work-out, run, or swim for the 8-hours (or 2-4 hrs post express formula) following your tan. Use alcohol free body wash or soap to avoid drying out the skin, and keep showers short. Lotion daily, twice if possible and always following the shower. Use the Tan Mist to touch up area that get shaved frequently, hands, feet, and face.
Can you spray tan during pregnancy & breast-feeding?
You can spray tan during pregnancy and breast-feeding. We have consulted the company we buy products from, nurses, and more to ensure our product is safe for you and your baby-to-be. When breastfeeding, we will not take your top area without bandeau, strapless bra, etc to ensure there is no product where baby will be directly in contact with the skin. But, ultimately, we recommend to consult trusted family, doctors, etc.
Does it effect skin conditions?
The tanning formula is approved for all sensitive skins and special disorders of the skin, but if you have ever had a allergic reaction to ANY self-tanner, abstain from spray tanning.
