Spray Tan After Care Tips

Achieving the Perfect Tan: Tips and Tricks

So, you've just gotten your tan done, and now comes the crucial part - letting it develop for the perfect sun-kissed glow. Here are some spray tan after care tips and tricks to ensure you get the most out of your tan and maintain it effectively.

Let Your Tan Develop Naturally

It is essential to allow your tan to develop properly for 8-12 hours after the tanning session. During this time, your skin will gradually darken, giving you that desired bronzed look. However, if you feel like you've reached your ideal tone before the recommended time, feel free to take a quick shower to halt the tanning process. For those on the go, Quick Develop tans are a perfect option that provides a rapid tan without compromising quality. What's more, we don't charge extra for this service, unlike other salons.

Protect Your Tan During Development

While your tan is developing, it's crucial to avoid activities that might get you wet, such as washing dishes, doing laundry, or even dancing in the rain. If you have leather seats, ensure you place something between your skin and the leather to prevent your tan from lifting and staining.

Showering Tips

When it's time to shower, keep it short and use lukewarm water. Hot water can dry out your skin and affect the longevity of your tan. Make sure to thoroughly remove all the cosmetic bronzer to avoid streaks and uneven fading. We recommend using our specialized Polish during your first shower to effectively remove the bronzer without any issues.

Maintain Your Tan

Avoid using body washes and soaps on areas where you have applied the tan as they contain acidic substances that can cause your tan to fade quickly and unevenly. Instead, use the Polish to keep your tan fading evenly. On the first day, gently massage a small amount of Polish into areas prone to sweat accumulation. You can continue using your regular body wash on other parts of your body if preferred.

Hydrate Your Skin

To keep your tan looking fresh and prevent uneven fading, it's important to keep your skin well-hydrated. We recommend using a hydrating lotion like our Hydrate after your first shower to lock in moisture and maintain your tan's longevity.

By following these simple tips and incorporating our recommended products into your post-tan routine, you can ensure a flawless and long-lasting tan that will have you glowing all summer long. Remember, a little care goes a long way in maintaining that perfect sun-kissed look!
