When getting a spray tan - there are many things we can do to improve the way that the self tanner adheres to the skin, or even improve how long the tan lasts! Here are some tips that will help first time tanners get an even tan that will withstand.
First, before the tanning appointment it is important to exfoliate the skin. This means, that a light scrub should be used all over the body that has texture within the wash. The most common ingredients that create these textures are salt, sugar and sand. When using the exfoliant, scrub lightly to remove dead skin. The fresh skin layer that is left will create an even glow that lasts. We have found that certain soaps and body washes can sometimes neutralize the spray tan, try and refrain from any that are sulphur or silicone based. After showering don't put on any perfumes, lotions, deodorants or make up. This will stop some of the solution attaching to your skin, and in some cases some deodorants have been known to turn armpits green! Shave or wax at least 24 hours before the session, and if waxing make sure you remove any wax residue.
Take off any jewelry or white clothing that could leave visible tan lines. Be sure to remove all jewelry before entering the tanning booth. Although the tanning solution will not harm jewelry, it could leave unsightly marks on the person tanning. Better safe than streaky!
Directly after the tan it is important to remove any excess solution from the bottom of the feet, or the palms of the hands. Wet wipes are provided as well as Barrier Cream at Sundaze for your spray tans. Use these on the tops of the feet, as well as the tops of the hands as well, to ensure that no spots are evident. Be quick, the solution dries fast, and the last thing that tanner's want is evidence of their faux glow!
After tanning, it is important to wait for up to 12 hours to have a shower. Showering before this time is up could lead to the tan being washed from the skin. Did you know that lotions and oils can decrease the effect, as they block the skin? Refrain from lotions containing high levels of oils before spray tanning, for the best glow.
Want a darker tan? Darker tans are the result of the solution being exposed to the skin for a longer period of time. For this reason, the excess moisture should be allowed to dry on the skin, rather than being toweled off. While it is drying, use the provided wipes to clean any areas which you do not want the excess tan.
While maintaining the tan it is important to refrain from long showers or long hot baths. You see, these practices cause the skin to exfoliate. With spray tans, the top layer of the skin maintains the color, hence the temporary effect. When long showers or hot baths are taken, than the skin will regenerate itself, causing the spray tan to fade. Not only water, but soaps can also cause the tan to fade - be sure to use mild soaps, with warm water and no exfoliant to ensure a lasting glow.
Using these tips, a spray tan should last at least five days - just long enough for your important event or date. Be sure to tan the day before the event, ensuring enough time for the skin to adjust, and to be able to shower again.
Spray Tanning during pregnancy is safe but any salon will tell a client that they should always consult their doctor, most will agree that the tanning solution does not get absorbed into the blood system and only dyes the topical part of your skin. Most will recommend that you should not tan in a tanning bed so as not to overheat, if you are getting a spraytan you should not do so your 1st trimester and also refrain from getting a spraytan while breastfeeding, other then that enjoy your tanned look
