Before & After Tan Tips | Spray Tan Lounge
Spray tanning is a great way to achieve a sun-kissed glow without exposing yourself to the harmful UV rays of the sun. Whether you’re getting a spray tan for a special occasion or to boost your confidence, it’s important to take care of your skin before and after the treatment.
Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your spray tan:
Before your spray tan:
Exfoliate: A day before your spray tan appointment, exfoliate your skin which will help the tan apply evenly and last longer.
Hair removal: If you’re planning on shaving, waxing or receiving a laser treatment beforehand, do so at least 24 hours before your appointment. This will give your skin time to heal and prevent the tan from settling into any open pores.
Don’t wear any lotion, deodorant, or makeup: Before your appointment be sure to remove any deodorant, or makeup from your skin using the freshening wipes available in the lounge. These products can interfere with the spray tan and cause uneven results.
Wear loose, dark clothing: After your spray tan, it is recommended you avoid tight-fitting clothes or anything that might rub against your skin. Instead, opt for loose, dark clothing.
Following your spray tan:
Wash your hands within 30 minutes of your tanning experience.
Wait at least 2 hours before showering. The longer you wait to shower after your spray tan, the deeper your tan will develop. Once you have showered, your tan will develop over the next 12 hours.
Moisturise: Make sure to apply a moisturiser to your skin each day. This will help to keep your skin hydrated and prevent the tan from fading too quickly.
Don’t exfoliate: Avoid exfoliating your skin for at least a week after your spray tan. This will help to ensure that the tan lasts as long as possible.
By following these tips, we can ensure you will be glowing with confidence from a flawless tan each and every visit.
