Spray Tanning questions
~ This can vary from person to person, but they typically last about 5-7 days from one application.
~ Shower, Exfoliate and Shave 24 Hours before your spray tan.
~ Use a body scrub head to toe to remove any dry, flaky kin before you get a spray tan so that the pigment will adhere smoothly for the most even results (as in, least streaky).
~ Do not apply makeup, deodorant, oils or moisturizers.
~ While many people decide to get a spray tan while wearing nothing (no tan lines!), if you do wear a bathing suit, wear an old one you don’t mind ruining, since the tan can stain the fabric.
~ The pigment that spray tans leave behind is meant to slowly fade as your top layer of skin regenerates, so it’s not the kind of thing you can just scrub off. That’s why it’s able to last up to a week—and why you should approach with caution to make sure you won’t be stuck looking unnaturally tan for a full seven days.
~ Keeping your newly tanned skin hydrated is the best way to make the color last longer, because it won’t dry out and need to be exfoliated prematurely.
~ Pat yourself dry rather than rub with a towel after getting out of the shower. The idea is to not exfoliate for as long as possible so that you don’t rub off the tan. Avoid using loofahs or coarse washcloths for the same reason.
