The Lowdown on "White Spotting"
So, you spot some white dots on your skin after a spray tan? No need to hit the panic button! These little buddies are actually a positive sign that you're tanning like a pro from the perfect distance. It's your skin saying, "Hold on, I'm getting that glow on point!


Tan Build-Up 101
White spots happen during the initial application when your skin gets a bit too cozy with the tanning solution. Think of it as a 'tan build-up' - it's like your skin's way of saying, "I want ALL the glow right here!"

Relax, It's Temporary
Take a deep breath and relax; those white spots are just a temporary pitstop on the road to a flawless tan. They'll vanish during the development process, and your tan will wash off like a dream. Remember, what you see at application is just a surface bronzer – the real magic is happening beneath!

Common Culprits Behind the Dots

Speedy Application
Slow and steady wins the tanning race! Applying the solution too quickly can lead to those sneaky white dots.

Tips to Dodge the Dots in the Future

Pre-Tan Prep Vibes
Before you dive into tanning paradise, make sure you've nailed your prep routine. It's the secret sauce for a flawless glow!

Timing is Everything
Shave or wax at least 24 hours before your tan adventure. Pores need time to close up shop, avoiding any unwanted dot guests.

Cool It Down
Hot water on tanning day? Nah, not a vibe. Opt for a cooler shower or a splash of cold water to keep those pores closed and dot-free.

Exfoliate Like a Pro
Regular exfoliation is the key to a smooth canvas. Say goodbye to dead skin and hello to an even tan canvas!

Mitt Magic
Grab a tanning mitt – your BFF for flawless application. No more worries about overdoing it in one spot!

Lightweight Love
Choose a tanning mist with a lightweight formula. It's like airbrushing for your skin – smooth, even, and no heavy feels.

Sunscreen, Always
Protect that radiant glow with sunscreen. No one wants sun damage to steal the show and enlarge those pores!

So, there you have it, the scoop on the white dots and how to keep them at bay. Your journey to a flawless tan just got a whole lot more entertaining!
