Before I get a sunless tan, I have a beauty regimen I strictly follow to prepare my skin. First, I thoroughly exfoliate my skin with a body polisher used on dry skin. Then, I hop in the shower to wash away dead skin cells. I pat my skin dry and check that all cuts and scrapes have healed properly.
When I’ve completed my exfoliating ritual I’m ready for a spray tan. I’ve found a great technician who makes house calls with her mobile tanning booth. Her concierge service allows me to get a perfect tan from the comfort and privacy of my own home. My beauty regimen gets big thumbs up from the technician because it makes her job easier in terms of ensuring that the spray tan absorbs evenly and easily into the skin.
In order to make your business succeed you’ll need top quality equipment. You’ll need a HVLP or LVLP gun, sunless tanning solution, and spray tan tents. It’s wise to also have lotions and exfoliating creams to sell to your clients so they can properly maintain their tans. Of course, you’ll also need a van or large vehicle to transport your equipment.
Once you have your equipment in place, it’s time to market your enterprise! There’s nothing wrong with being a shameless self-promoter. Put your name and business information on the side of your car; print up flyers and business cards to give out; purchase advertising in local papers. Consider making deals with hotels and gyms to set up shop every once in a while; they can market it as a special concierge service to their customers. The best way to grow your business is by positive word of mouth, so make sure you treat your customers with the utmost respect and give them an incredible sunless tan!

Tanning is the same. You need to make sure that you have all the supplies that you need.
