Spray Tan 101: A Guide to Achieving the Perfect Spray Tan

Spray Tan 101: A Guide to Achieving the Perfect Spray Tan

Say goodbye to sunburns and hello to the flawless bronze of a spray tan! Achieving that sun-kissed glow doesn't have to be complicated; in fact, it can be a fun and indulgent experience.

Follow this guide to ensure your spray tan is flawless, radiant, and lasts longer than the summer sun.

 

Preparation

Exfoliation Extravaganza
Prepare your canvas by exfoliating your skin a day before your spray tan. This ensures a smooth surface, free from dead skin cells that could cause uneven tanning. Embrace the scrub, and let the pre-tan pampering begin!

To Shave or Wax? That is the Question
Opt for shaving over waxing before your spray tan. Shaving removes hair closer to the surface, allowing the tan to adhere more evenly. Plus, it's an opportunity for a little dance routine in the shower – consider it a warm-up for the tanning party ahead!

How To Get A Flawless Spray Tan

During the Session

Dress for Success
Wear loose, dark clothing to your spray tan session. Tight clothing can rub off the tan, while dark colors help mask any immediate bronzing residue. Think of it as a chance to flaunt your chic pre-tan fashion sense!

Strike a Pose – Tan Edition
During the session, follow the technician's instructions on poses and movements. This ensures every nook and cranny gets its fair share of the tan. Plus, it's a chance to unleash your inner model – work it, twirl it, own that spray tan catwalk!

Time Flies When You're Glowing
A typical spray tan session takes around 15-20 minutes. Use this time to daydream about your upcoming bronzed look or plan your post-tan celebration. Maybe there's a tropical drink waiting for you?

Your 101 To A Perfect Spray Tan

Aftercare

Shower Power – Patience is a Virtue
Wait at least 8-10 hours before showering to allow the tan to fully develop. Use this time to catch up on your favorite shows, dive into a good book, or practice your post-tan victory dance. Patience pays off for a flawless finish!

Product Prohibitions
Post-tan, avoid oil-based products, as they can strip away your golden glow. Opt for water-based moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated without compromising the tan. This is also a prime opportunity for a mini spa day – treat yourself!
