10 SECRETS to a LONG LASTING, Flawless Spray Tan
Spray tans can sound a little complicated at first, and if you have never gotten one before it can be a little confusing that there are steps you need to take before getting a spray tan.
With these tips you will be sure to receive a flawless, long-lasting, beautiful tan. The preparation of a spray tan starts 24-48 hours before you have scheduled your spray tan session. During this time it is recommended that you do the following things…
Your skin should be as clean and soft as possible.
Exfoliate skin thoroughly 24-48 hours before your Sunless Tan with a Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt or an exfoliating body scrub.
DO NOT use any oil based products, Dove brand soaps, harsh bar soaps, prescription anti-acne or anti-wrinkle medication or face wash with in 24 hours of your Sunless Tan.
Be sure to shave or wax prior to your Sunless Tan. Shaving should be done at least 8 hours prior and Waxing should preferably be done at least 24 hours before your Sunless Tan.
DO NOT apply any lotion, oil, or make-up, and use deodorant sparingly, as they all will inhibit the DHA from absorbing into the skin.
Schedule manicures and pedicures prior to your Sunless Tan to avoid exfoliation and fading of your sunless color.
The above preparations will help ensure a more even, longer lasting tan. However, our Infinite Glow solution is designed to work just as well with no preparation with beautiful, natural looking results.
Now onto how to maintain that tan, and keep your new glow as long as possible.
MAINTENANCE AND AFTERCARE
Moisturize daily, keep your skin as soon and soft as possible. Do not use a moisturizer with a high alcohol or mineral oil content.
DO NOT plan any activities that will cause you to get wet, sweat, or cause your clothing to rub against your skin for at least 4 hours (preferably 8 hours).
DO NOT bathe or swim for at least 8 hours after your Sunless Tan. It is preferable to wait 16 hours before using soap. Use only mild body wash, like After Glow Body Wash, which is specifically designed not to strip away sunless color like the average drug store body washes.
DO NOT use oil based products, Dove brand soaps, harsh bar soaps, prescription anti-acne or anti-wrinkle medication or face wash prior to or after your Sunless Tan.
DO NOT apply lotion until after first shower.
TAN TIP: In the shower avoid loofas and wash cloths. Just gently rinse yourself and wash gently with your hands. Do not use any body washes with a high alcohol or mineral oil content. Pat dry with a towel, and do NOT rub your skin.
Follow these steps and you will be a pro in no time. Stay golden!
