Getting a perfect tan is hard, but keeping it looking great is even harder.

Preparation is the very first step to maximize your spray tan results. These are things to follow:

  • Wax or shave before the appointment as doing so after the tanning session will only cause your tan to fade.
  • Use an in-depth scrub to exfoliate your body to remove dry patches and dead skin.
  • Do not use any moisturizers on the day of the tan as the product can act as a barrier resulting in unevenness and streaks.
  • Wear loose clothing to the appointment.
  1. During The Spray Tan

These are the things to expect and tips to follow:

  • When you reach the salon, you can undress to whatever your level of comfort is. Wear undergarments or a bathing suit.
  • The professional spray tan technician will instruct you on the efficient angles, arm placement, and body rotations.
  1. After Spray Tanning Tips

These are tips for immediately after your spray tanning session:

  • Do not rub your skin or cross your legs as that will only form streaks.
  • When driving home, be mindful of the seat belt strap smearing your chest.
  • Stay away from activities that might result in sweating.
  • Do not come in contact with water.

Making Your Tan Last

Things to focus on include:

  • Moisturize daily using a hydrating PH balanced formulation as it will help the tan last longer.
  • Stay clear of microdermabrasion sessions, strips, masks, and scrubbing.
  • Steer clear of products containing alcohol, lactic acids, or salicylic acid.
  • Avoid body washes such as bathes, manicures and pedicures, and hot water too.
  • Limit the amount of time you spend in the shower
  • Avoid oils, hard soaps, and exfoliants.
  • Don’t rub your body with a towel after showers.
