Spray Tan Aftercare Tips & Tricks

The best way to have a perfect spray tan is to of course listen to your technician about what spray tan aftercare tips and tricks there are to make your spray tan look great and last. We know all of them ask for yourselves so you can ensure your custom spray tan looks fantastic everyday!
One of the best untold secrets to making sure your spray tan looks great for many days is to pat not rub your skin while showering including after you shower. This means no loofahs and no washcloths. Each one of these items is a tool for exfoliation of the skin. It is even important to pat dry instead of rubbing with your towel when you dry off. Even that can cause the top layer of your skin to exfoliate. When you exfoliate your skin it removes parts of the top layer for the epidermis, which is the same part of the skin that holds the spray tan solution.
Another spray tan aftercare tip is to make sure you always moisturize. The skin can become dry from spray tanning, and when the skin becomes dry it causes the top layer to shed. This can cause your spray tan to become blotchy after several days. We always recommend applying a water based lotion at least everyday. In the summer,  we recommended twice a day and especially for our clients who are prone to dry skin.
These are just a couple of our spray tan aftercare tips and tricks. Make sure to book your appointment today with one of our trained spray tan technicians. We will make sure you get the best spray tan and know exactly how to maintain that great glow!

Spray Tanning Tips

SPRAY TANNING TIPS #1 EXFOLIATING

Everyone wants to get the best spray tan out there, I believe there are just a few important spray tanning tips that will always help you achieve the perfect tan! I have created this spray tanning tips blog to help share all my knowledge and any fun facts that will help you get the best spray tan every time! Here is one of my favorite spray tanning tips  #1 Exfoliating. Every spray tan technician will always say exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. This is the very first thing that you want to do before your appointment!

I cannot stress how important this step is in order to getting the best spray tan results. Exfoliating your skin provides numerous amounts of benefits. The first benefit of exfoliating is it will get you the best spray tanning results. Some of the other great benefits include unclogging your skins' pores as well as cleaning it.

Another great benefit of exfoliating the skin especially when done prior to shaving helps create a closer shave and prevents ingrown hairs. Exfoliating helps create the best spray by helping remove all the dead skin cells of your body. When the skin is properly prepped and exfoliated it creates a wonderfully smooth and even skin surface that allows the spray tanning solution to be have an even application.

The removal of dry patches on skin is another great benefit of exfoliating. When there are dry patches of skin this can cause some unwanted issues when getting a spray tan. Dry patches can create an uneven application process which can cause the spray tanning solution to be more concentrated in those areas. Removing these dry patches of your skin with proper exfoliation will prevent excess solution being absorbed in these areas.

When exfoliating is done correctly before your appointment it allows the spray tanning solution to be applied evenly. This helps create the perfect  spray tan! It is always important to inform your spray tan technician of any dry patches of skin. The spray tan technician can always help apply barrier cream to these trouble places. It will help  prevent excess solution build-up, preventing dark patches.

One of the best products that I recommend all my clients and that I personally use is ST. TROPEZ  tan enhancing polish. The great benefits of ST. TROPEZ'S tan enhancing polish is that it  provides great exfoliation, as well as a pH cleansing the provides your skin as the perfect blank canvas before you get your spray tan! Make sure to ask your spray tan technician about new products or extra tips. All of Instant Beauty Spa staff is highly trained and informed on all the latest techniques and products.
