Preparing Your Client for a Spray Tan or Wax
As the seasons change and the weather starts getting warmer, the demand for spray tans and waxing services steadily increases. Nothing can ruin a vacation faster than a streaky tan or irritation from a wax – it’s best to ensure that both you and your clients are adequately prepared for a treatment!
Whether you’re a spray tan artist or an esthetician, make sure your client exfoliates prior to coming in for an appointment. Removing dead skin cells is one of the most important steps to allow for a smooth, even tan. For waxing, it also smooths the skin and helps to prevent irritation and ingrown hairs. Qosmedix stocks various exfoliating products that your clients can use to prep – these products would be a perfect addition to a waxing or spray tan starter kit!
As most of the prep work is done at home, you’ll likely give your client some pre-appointment advice before they come in. Even so, it’s a good idea to keep some individual Diamond Wipes® Gentle Cleansing Makeup Remover Wipes on hand, in case your client doesn’t get every bit of their makeup, lotion or other products off before they come in for treatment. For any type of facial treatment, it’s important for your client to secure their hair back. Our No Crease Elastic Ribbon Ponytail Holders are essential! For even more protection, Qosmedix stocks a broad selection of hair covers and headbands.
Should your clients feel uncomfortable or if it’s their very first appointment, it’s considerate to give them the option to cover up! Qosmedix stocks disposable apparel that works for both tanning and waxing clients. Disposable Boxers are also a great option for men.
For tanning sessions specifically - our Disposable Spray Tanning Apparel Kit contains everything your client will need for their tan session. It’s perfect for mobile spray tan services! In the kit: a bouffant cap, bra, g-string and strapless sticky sandals. All can be discarded after use or purchased separately if needed. To protect yourself and your client from inhaling airborne spray tan solutions, our Breathable Nose Filters are a comfortable solution.
After each appointment, make sure your client is fully informed about proper aftercare for their treatment – whether it be tanning or waxing. Post-treatment care is just as important as pre-treatment preparation! These practices will help maintain optimal results in addition to keeping your clients happy and coming back for future appointments.
