What went wrong?

Hey there, bronzed beauties! Karina here, ready to spill the tea on how to avoid turning your tan from fabulous to faux pas in one simple step. Buckle up, because we're diving into the hilarious tale of a client mishap that left me gasping for air – quite literally!

So picture this: I've been tanning my client for the past 5-6 years, and let me tell you, every tan is a masterpiece. We're talking flawless, golden goddess status. But then came the day when she decided to spice things up with a little pre-tan pampering – cue the coffee scrub.

Now, let me set the scene for you. My client waltzes into her appointment, coffee scrub in hand, thinking she's about to unveil the secret to the ultimate glow. Little did she know, she was about to send me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions that even Disney couldn't dream up.

As she's getting prepped for her tan, she casually glances at the label of the coffee scrub and discovers the dreaded words: "contains oils." Cue my internal meltdown. I'm hyperventilating, having out-of-body experiences – the whole shebang. I'm pretty sure I aged a decade in those few seconds.

Fast forward to the next day, and I'm bracing myself for the inevitable meltdown call from my client. But lo and behold, she messages me with the news – the tan developed, not quite as flawless as usual, but hey, ain't nobody gonna notice except her.

And just like that, the moral of the story hits me like a ton of bronzing bricks: always err on the side of caution, my lovelies! Stick to using a mitt or exfoliating towel (you can find 'em here), or go with your tried-and-true exfoliating product. But for the love of all things tan-tastic, do it the day before your appointment and make sure those sneaky oils are nowhere to be found.

Oh, and a little PSA while we're at it – shave the day before and shower at least 4 hours pre-tan. Consider it a love letter from me to you, with a side of laughter and a whole lot of bronzed brilliance.

Stay golden, my darlings!

xx Karina
