Spray tan season is well and truely under way! And we want your tan to look as amazing as possible. Follow our top tips for the perfect spray tan every time.
When it comes to the perfect spray tan, preparation is key.
Start to do a full body exfoliation in the lead up to your tan to buff off dead skin cells and to make the skin surface smooth and soft.
Moisturise every night to stop the skin from becoming dry and flaky. Dry skin can make your tan appear uneven and patchy, while hydrated skin will allow for even coverage and will keep your tan looking better for longer.
On the day of your tan do not apply any lotions or oils to the body, and avoid applying perfume or deodorant too close to your appointment.
We recommend to wear loose fitting, dark clothing and shoes that can slid on and off easily.
Allow the tan to develop for the recommended amount of time, this can be anything from a few hours to overnight depending. Have a shower with warm water, not steaming hot. Allow the water to rinse over your body, do not scrub or rub the skin.
It may look like all your tan is washing down the drain, don’t panic! This is just the bronzing coat rinsing off, your true colour will continue to develop once you are dry. When you get out of the shower be sure to gently pat yourself dry.
The following day you may start to apply moisturising lotion all over the body to keep the skin hydrated and your tan looking its best for longer. One of the most important things to remember with a spray tan is that it provides absolutely no protection from the sun. To protect yourself from the extremely harmful UVA and UVB rays we recommend a broad spectrum sunscreen of 30 or higher.
