Spray Tan Tips
Before your Spray Tan Session
The most important thing before getting a spray tan is to exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate. Exfoliating before a spray tan will greatly improve the quality of your tan and will ensure that the spray tanning solution applies evenly.
Pay particular attention to the dry areas of your body like your elbows and knees as well as the ankles and your feet.
If your feet and toes are extra dry you can apply a little moisturizer to these areas just before your spray tan and this will stop a lot of the spray tan solution sticking to all the dry skin and making them look much darker.
Exfoliating will also make your tan last longer and fade more evenly as it removes any excess dead skin cells and leaves you with soft, fresh skin.
Exfoliating gloves and loofahs are the best to use for this purpose.
Extra spray tan tip: Shaving is best done between 8 and 24 hours prior to your spray tan and waxing must be done at least 24 hours prior.
To your Spray Tan Session
Do not wear any moisturiser or deodorant, make-up or perfume to your spray tanning session and wear your Kaf.Tanned Tanning & Fashion Apparel! Comfortable and effortless, this will ensure that your tan remains as flawless as possible until you shower.
The first hour is the most crucial because this is when most of the tan develops so our garments are the perfect solution for you.
Whilst your tan is developing avoid any activity that would cause sweating as this could result in lines and uneven tanning.
After Spray Tan Care and Maintenance
When you are ready to shower, wash with a mild moisturising shower gel, preferably SLS free. Normal soaps can often be a little harsh and strip the skin and in doing so remove your tan a lot quicker.Always pat your skin dry, do not rub the skin.
The most important thing after a spray tan is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. This will greatly improve the life and the look of your spray tan. Tanning extenders can also help extend the life of your tan and these are often sold where you go to get your spray tan from.
Extra spray tan tip: Swimming in chlorinated pools may contribute to your spray tan fading quicker than normal.
