The cold and long winter months tend to make the skin look dull and unhealthy. This is because the cold weather strips the skin of its moisture. Thankfully, you can help to combat this by getting a winter spray tan. A professionally done winter spray tan helps you to preserve your summer glow even in the coldest months.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Spray Tan in Winter

Getting a winter spray tan keeps your skin flawless during the cold months.

It’s crucial to ensure you exfoliate your skin properly before your spray tanning appointment to get the most out of your winter spray tan. Exfoliating is important because it gets rid of the dead skin cells, creating a clean canvas for the spray tan to be applied. Spray tans last longer (and look better) on hairless bodies, so you want to be sure to shave your body before getting your winter spray tan. To make your winter spray tan last longer, moisturize frequently afterward and stay hydrated. This is because winter tends to dry out the skin, damaging your spray tan.

What is the Best Skin Tone and Tan Level for Winter Months?

The most crucial factor to consider when getting a winter spray tan is the color of your natural skin tone. When choosing a tan level for your spray tan in winter, it is best to go with a more subdued tone.  Go with a skin tone that compliments your winter clothing and all the other colors around you. Generally, when getting a winter spray tan, it is advised that you go for a tan level that is just a few shades darker than your natural winter skin tone. This is different than what is recommended for tanning shades during the summer months.
