In order to obtain the best results possible and insure a long lasting spray tan please follow these steps:
What to do:The Night Before:
Take a shower
Exfoliate your skin by using a thick body scrub. Apply the body scrub to a washcloth or loofah and massage it into your skin using circular motions. Make sure to focus on dry areas such as elbows, feet, ankles,and knees. Don’t forget your hands!
Shave your legs. After you get your spray tan you will want to shave as little as possible, so you don’t strip your tan. Shaving before your spray tan will also exfoliate the skin on your legs.
BE SURE to shave your legs the night before and not the day of your spray tan. Shaving immediately before will leave the pores on your legs too exposed. This can cause a razor burn like rash on your legs for a couple of days after getting your spray tan.
If you must shave closer to your spray tan, try splashing some cold water on your legs before you come in to the salon. This can help to close those pores back up and prevent razor burn!
Do not apply lotion to your body after you shower (unless you plan to shower and rinse the lotion off of your skin the morning of your spray tan). This lotion can create a barrier between your pores and the spray tan mist.
