about

Bare Brush Tan specializes in organic spray tanning in the San Diego and Oceanside areas. Derived from the same sugar found in green apples, we customize your tan to your skin tone and provide the best bronze available without unpleasant odors, harsh chemicals, or unsightly orange tints. Our unique solution is infused with aloe, moisturizing botanicals, and caffeine to help nurture healthy skin. Due to the moisturizing agents, your Bare Brush Tan will fade like a natural tan would, not scaly or splotchy.

Bare Brush Tan has two locations. Our original studio opened in Mission Beach in 2015, and our new location in Oceanside opened in September 2018.

“Five stars is not nearly enough for Bare Brush Tan.  The welcoming shop, friendly personalities, technique and formula are all spectacular. Today was my first visit, but I am already a loyal customer.

– Andrea S. from Mission Beach

“She keeps a heater on while she’s spraying you which I really liked, because nobody likes to be cold and naked while being sprayed down and the slight vanilla scent is very pleasant!”

– Susan K. from Mission Beach

“Beautiful natural glow! Not streaky, or orange, or any weird smell. Never doing any other airbrush! Perrin was so helpful and friendly, even followed up! Great customer service!”

– Alex R. from Mission Beach

“Perrin is so amazing! I scheduled my tan a day in advance and went in yesterday. She was super friendly and helpful from the second I made the appointment and throughout the whole process.”

– Jessica S. from Mission Beach

before you tan

We have a few pointers to make sure you get the best possible tan. Please read all of the following information before your appointment, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

before your appointment

We highly recommend that you shower, shave and exfoliate the day before or the day of your appointment. Oil based scrubs and soaps should be avoided. The day of your appointment it’s important to not wear any moisturizer on your skin. Please schedule waxing, manicures and pedicures before your appointment.

what to wear

It’s best to wear dark loose clothing, and sandals to your appointment. There is a cosmetic bronzer in the solution and it can rub off on clothing. It washes out of most materials, but it’s better to be on the safe side.

how long will it last

This depends on several factors including your skin type, physical activity and aftercare. Your tan should last minimum of a week, and has the potential to last as long as two weeks. To increase the longevity of your tan, we highly recommend paraben-free moisturizer.

is it orange or streaky

Absolutely not. The solution is sugar-based to prevent any orange undertones. Other solutions on the market are derived from beet or beta-carotene (carrot extracts) creating an orange undertone and a funny scent. Bare Brush Tan is pleasantly scented and will give you a golden-brown color. In addition, our airbrush technicians are highly qualified and trained to avoid any streaks or unevenness.

after your appointment

Avoid showering or sweating for 4-8 hours after your appointment. Keeping moisturized will not only extend the longevity of your tan, but your tan will also fade evenly. It’s best to avoid chlorinated pools, spas, and steam rooms.

tan lines

You are welcome to wear as much or as little as you please while you are tanning, just keep unwanted tan lines in mind. (We have disposable thongs as well)

is it really custom

Yes, we customize the solution based on your unique skin tone, and the shade of tan you desire. We will contour and highlight your natural lines, creating a slimming effect.

does it smell bad

Absolutely not. Bare Tan Solution doesn’t have an unpleasant after scent. You can go back to work without being smelly.

will it look natural on fair skin

Yes. We customize the solution to suit your skin tone. If it’s your first time tanning, we suggest selecting a lighter shade.
