Spray Tanning is one of the most efficient ways to get the bronzed glow look you want, without the harmful effects of UV sun exposure and tanning beds.
Spray tanning is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body.
This temporary effect generally lasts from 3-7 days and is completely safe for your skin (although it doesn’t provide any protection against the sun’s rays).
How To Prepare For Your Spray Tanning Session
Make sure you shave or wax before your appointment. A lot of people say to do it a day or two before (so your pores close) but that only applies if the solution is dark or has a bronzer in it. If it’s a clear solution, you can shave or wax the day of your appointment.
Be sure to exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment.
Try to remove moisturizers, makeup and deodorant before you spray tan.These products contain ingredients like oils that can make it hard for the main ingredient in self tanning spray to bind to your skin. This could cause your spray tan to look streaky and blotchy. You don’t want that!
To keep the spray tan solution on overnight that means no showering, using soap, or any moisturiser for at least 8 hours. The colour starts to develop within an hour or two and really kicks in within 3-5 hours.
The benefits of spray tanning also extend into the psychological arena. Let’s be honest – we all feel better when we have a tan. Who isn’t happier sporting a healthy looking radiance, than pale, pasty skin?
As they say, look good, feel good!
