Spray Tan BasicsWritten by Sher Matsen
With more and more of us understanding serious consequences of suntanning, we are looking for alternatives. Remember first self tanners that hit shelves many years ago – wella you became instant carrot orange. Well we’ve come along way babe! The hottest thing to hit beauty seen is “spray tanning.”
Spray tan in a can is latest in sunless tanning technology. Forget lotions or pump sprays that leave uneven tones. Although lotions have come along way from carrot orange days, some can still leave you with orange under tones. Aerosol tanning sprays can leave you with a perfect looking, no hassle, even tan. Spray tan in a can is safest, easiest way to get a perfect sunless tan at home! . No more harmful UV rays or trips to tanning bed.
You will want to find a reputable shop. Ask around, word of mouth is always a good way to find out what salon does best spray tanning. Once you’ve chosen a salon book your appointment. If your planning to have a spray tan for a special event, say like your wedding, then I would suggest a trial run about a month prior. If you like results you can book again, if you don’t then I suggest trying another salon.
On day of your appointment shower and exfoliate. Use a loofah and shower gel and body scrub to remove all your dry/dead skin. This will ensure an even application.
At salon they will give you instructions, often these instructions are in form of video. The whole procedure and what you need to do will be explained to you. . Some important things to remember: 1. hold your breath when spray is going off (for about 14 seconds and its very challenging) 2. follow instructions “exactly” as to where to apply lotion to block spray on your feet and hands. You need to block spray from your hands and feet because these areas have excess wrinkles and creases, so if they are sprayed you will get a tell-tale white veiny looking areas in creases. 3. when spray stops you need to turn around 4. when you leave spray booth you will be given towels to wipe down and remove any excess spray. Make sure you wipe not blot. The color from your spray tan will last anywhere from 7-10 days. The treatments are still a bit on pricey side at around $40.00 a treatment, so this isn’t something you get done on a regular basis, more like a treat or for a special occasion. Some companies sell packages that give you a reduced rate.
