Maximize Your Spray Tan Experience: Tips for Spray Tan Preparation and Aftercare

When it comes to getting a flawless spray tan, proper spray tan preparation and aftercare are key to achieving that sun-kissed glow you desire. One essential step in the pre-tan routine that often surprises many is the instruction to avoid wearing deodorant. The reason behind this precaution may seem frustrating at first, but understanding the science behind it can help you make the most of your spray tan experience.

Deodorant and spray tans don't mix well due to a chemical reaction that can occur between the two. When deodorant comes into contact with the spray tan solution on your skin, it can result in a greenish hue and interfere with the development of your tan, leaving you with less-than-desirable results. To ensure that your spray tan develops evenly and beautifully, it's best to skip the deodorant before your appointment.

After your spray tan session, consider taking your tan to the next level with an optional add-on: setting powder. At 360 Tans, we offer a specially formulated setting powder that is talc-free and naturally antimicrobial. But why is this powder beneficial for your tan’s longevity and appearance?

The secret lies in combating the main culprit behind that post-tan stinky smell: bacteria. Bacteria on the skin can interact with the spray tan solution, leading to an unpleasant odor and a sticky feeling. By applying the setting powder after your spray tan, you can help ward off bacteria and keep your skin feeling fresh and comfortable. This talc-free formula not only helps set your tan but also provides antimicrobial properties to keep your skin healthy and your tan looking its best.

Incorporating setting powder into your post-spray tan routine is a simple yet effective way to enhance the longevity and appearance of your tan. By following these tips for preparation and aftercare, you can ensure that your spray tan looks radiant and lasts as long as possible.

Remember, a little extra care and attention can go a long way in maintaining that just-off-the-beach glow. So, embrace the prep steps, indulge in the setting powder, and enjoy your flawless spray tan!
