If you’re looking forward to getting a gorgeous bronzed look this summer without having to sit for hours under the sun’s harmful UV rays then spray tanning is the way to go! The natural spray tan solution is formulated by TGA approved ingredients that make the procedure both safe and effective! But to achieve a natural fake tan there are most essential steps to follow before and after, these include:
Making an appointment at a spray tan salon that has a lot of recommendations and certified staff.
Shower and exfoliate before your spray tanning procedure. Pay close attention to the drier parts of your body, like the elbows, knees, knuckles, ankles, soles and palms. These regions should be exfoliated well so that the dead skin cells are removed from these areas. This is an essential step in achieve a natural fake tan that is both evenly applied and longer lasting.
Shave or wax before the session. This prevents a short-life of your spray tan.
After showering, apply a light moisturiser. This makes the skin soft and ready for an even natural fake tan look all over the body.
Do not apply any lotion, makeup, deodorant or perfume before the spray tanning session. This is because the chemicals in these products may react with the spray tan solution and change the colour of the spray tan solution.
Wear lose and dark coloured clothes to the spray tanning session. This is to avoid any smudges of smears on your clothes after the session.
Cover your hair with a disposable hair cap or shower cap for the procedure. Wearing a cap will hold back your hair from coming on your face.
Stand completely still during the session. This will make create a natural spray tan as the solution will come on evenly over the entire body.
Let the solution dry before you wear clothes. Wait at least 10-15 minutes for the tanning solution to dry.
Do not shower for at least 6-8 hours after the session; this helps the solution to be fully absorbed onto your outer layer of your skin.
Do not participate in any physical exercise, avoiding contact with water allows you to maintain your natural spray tan look for as long as possible.
Moisturise daily after the spray tan session. This extends the life of the tan and allows an even fade after the 10 days have passed.
When the spray tan begins to fade, take a bath and buff yourself. The flaky and patchy tan will come off.
