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 Tan Tip #3

Some of the best spray tans can be ruined before you leave your appointment. This can happen simply by just putting your clothes back on or even by something natural as sweating. The last thing someone wants after getting a spray tan is to have unwanted discoloration marks or tan lines. This can happen by not wearing loose enough fitting clothes or the wrong type of fabric. It can also happen just by your body sweating. Either way, you should be able to have a perfect spray tan every time.

The application of drying powder can put all these fears aside. Drying powder is a talc-free powder that helps prevent the spray tan from getting a negative effect. The most common areas that the drying powder should be applied to involves the armpits, underneath the breasts, behind the knees and in the creases of the arms. The application of drying powder after your spray tan, also stops any sticky feeling that can occur.
