Myths and Misconceptions

Have you heard questionable opinions about spray tans? Not sure what to expect? Well we’re here to help you realize the amazing, professional, and natural-looking result a spray tan can give you!

My spray tan will look orange.

This is one of the most common misconceptions of spray tanning. Thankfully due to new formula advancements, your spray tan will come out looking natural and beautiful.

My color will be uneven and splotchy.

Worried about your spray tan coming out uneven and splotchy? Thankfully it won’t! A fine mist is applied to your skin and is designed to evenly cover every part of your body. Once the solution is on your skin, it will begin activating. You won’t need to worry about your spray tan coming out uneven, especially if you take proper care of it and moisturize.

A spray tan is sticky and uncomfortable.

You might think a spray tan would be sticky and uncomfortable, after all, you are spraying a substance on your skin. In reality, once your spray tan is on, you won’t even realize any difference in your skin!

They’re too much maintenance.

Spray tans aren’t that much maintenance at all. All you have to do is make sure you take care of your color, i.e. don’t rub or exfoliate your skin or do something that would cause your skin cells to come off. Just remember to make sure to keep it moisturized!

It will take too long.

A spray tan is a very quick beauty treatment. It only takes a few minutes to transform into a golden goddess and a few short hours to develop a beautiful tan!

A spray tan costs too much.

Spray tans are very affordable and we even offer low-cost memberships.

MAKE YOUR SPRAY TAN LAST EVEN LONGER

It’s no secret that everyone loves a beautiful, sun-kissed spray tan. Before you make your next spray tan appointment, make sure you follow this guide to ensure you have a long-lasting, beautiful spray tan!

PREP

A successful spray tan always begins with proper preparation. Exfoliation prior to your spray tan is crucial. Not only does it remove dead skin cells, it helps the spray tan penetrate your newest and freshest skin, offering long-lasting and even coverage.

Along with exfoliation, shaving and waxing should be done 24 hours beforehand. Hair removal can leave your pores open so you need to give them a little time to close. And if you wait until after your spray tan to shave or wax, your beautiful spray tan will leave with your hair as well.

Coming to your appointment with no lotions, perfumes, makeups, oils, and deodorants, is essential to a smooth and even tan. If you have products on your skin, the spray tan won’t go through all the way, leaving you with a patchy result. To combat this, make sure your skin is as bare as it can be.

As for clothing, wear loose fitted clothes and flip flops. Skinny jeans and anything tight and constricting to your skin can cause your spray tan to potentially rub off or get creases.

AFTERCARE

A proper aftercare routine is important to follow to ensure your longest lasting tan. Wait at least four to eight hours before showering. Keep in mind that the longer you wait, the darker your color will develop. Avoid any water contact or sweating in that time period.

When bathing, keep your shower time as minimal as you can and the water temperature lukewarm. Use a sulfate, paraben, and mineral oil free body wash with your hand (vs. a wash cloth or loofah) to avoid exfoliating your skin. Be sure to pat your skin dry with a towel and don’t rub.

And the final tip for your longest lasting spray tan? MOISTURIZE. Moisturizing with a sunless lotion specifically made for spray tans or another all-natural lotion, is the best way to keep your spray tan intact. Similar to shower products, you’ll want to find a lotion that is sulfate, paraben, and mineral oil free.

Do’s & Don’t of Spray Tanning

Do’s & Don’t of Spray Tanning: Planning Ahead

In the heat of summer, my social calendar is filling up with tons of outdoor events! Weddings, BBQ’s, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties have quickly became a part of my summer weekends. One thing I’ve been sure to do in the midst of the craziness, is schedule ahead and plan my spray tans around these events to ensure I look my absolute best. Many things go into dressing up – hair, makeup, outfit, shoes. An amazing tan is all a girl needs to add the finishing touch! Here are a few of my do’s and don’ts for spray tanning:

DO: Shave, exfoliate, and keep your skin moisturized beforehand. Always remember to shave and exfoliate at least 24 hours in advance to ensure smooth and even application. Moisturize for a couple days beforehand to keep your skin properly hydrated. However, do not have a moisturizer on when your receive your spray, you’ll want your skin to be completely bare and product-free.

DON’T: get a manicure or pedicure after your spray tan. The warm water and chemicals will strip your tan. Make sure to do your nails at least 24-48 hours in advance.

DO: Make sure your tan is the right shade for you by doing a trial run or sticking to your normal color. The goal is to not have your spray tan stick out. Thanks to technology, spray tan consultants are able to analyze your skin color and help you choose and customize the right color for you.

DON’T: wait until the day of for your spray tan. Spray tanning is something you’ll want to do at least 24-48 hours ahead of time. This gives the spray tan time to settle and adds a little extra time to your routine just in case.

Setting a beauty routine and planning ahead will save you the stress of waiting until the last minute. With proper care and ample preparation, you’ll have the most beautiful tan for your events!
