Our Top Tips To Make Your Spray Tan Last Longer!
We get many questions from out clients asking the best way to make their spray tan last longer. Some of our clients only get 4 days out of a spray tan, whist others get up to 10 days… So how do you become someone who has an amazing bronze glow for up to 10 days?
1. Preparation: Wash, Exfoliate and Moisturise!
Prior to your spray tan session, your skin should be properly cleansed! Exfoliate at least 24 hours before your spray tan to give your skin plenty of time to recover. Avoid using a bar soap or other high PH products that will interfere with your tanning. During this time you should also get all hair removal out of the way, this will avoid you stripping your colour and irritating your skin afterwards.
2. After Tan: Wear loose, darker clothing
Immediately after your spray tan, the tan solution needs time to set. After you are dried off by your spray tan technician we recommend that you wear loose darker clothing as tight clothes can rub off or smear the tan before it has had time to properly set. Keep cool and avoid any activities that will make you sweat, the last thing you want is streaky tan lines. Most importantly only shower when advised by your spray tan technician, showering earlier than your meant too can result in a streaky, runny mess not a lighter colour tan! Colour options should be discussed prior to your spray tan not after!
3. Maintenance: Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise!
Moisturise all over your body everyday to help keep your skin soft and hydrated. Using either a tan extender or a light moisturiser with a gradual tanning agent will encourage an even tan-wear and help maintain your skins colour which will help your tan fade evenly.
We hope these tips help your tan looking beautifully bronze for longer!
