The KEY To A Perfect Spray Tan – Preparation!

I have found in life that being prepared produces MUCH higher rates of success than going into something just winging it. Picking out your clothes the night before, making a grocery list ahead of time and meal prepping for the week – all of these end up saving me time, money and energy. Preparing your skin for your spray tan appointment is no different. It is ESSENTIAL in achieving a flawless color. Here’s a few tips I always suggest to anyone wanting a sunless tan.

  1. Shave. (If you wax, do so at least 24 hours before your spray tan appointment. (My fav is sugaring!) This allows your skin to recover and prevents any irritation or color inconsistencies.
  1. Exfoliate. Begin by exfoliating your skin a day or two before your appointment. Use a gentle scrub or exfoliating mitt to remove any dead skin cells. We want a fresh layer of skin for the spray to adhere to.
  1. Moisturize!! Hydrated skin helps prevent the tan from clinging to these areas, resulting in a more even application.
  1. Remove makeup, deodorant and any perfumes. These can interfere with the tanning solution and may cause discoloration. We want a clean canvas, baby.
  1. Complete these steps the night before your appointment. Or at least within 4 hours, so that the moisturizer you’ve used has had time to soak in and won’t act as a barrier to the spray.

These tips can be followed for tanning at home as well! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I’d be happy to help!
