Summer is coming to an end, but for me I still enjoy that sun kissed glow all year round. I highly recommend a spray tan. If you explore in your area of spray tanning businesses you will find packages to be bought which usually are cost sufficient. It’s a quick and simple way to get that golden glow through the winter season and year round. I have had my days in the sun and this method, spray tanning, sure beats the harmful UV rays.On the average it takes 60 seconds for the spray. You can wear a bathing suit (make sure it’s an old one) for those who like tan lines. For me, I prefer my birthday suit. Spray tanning usually lasts 5 to 7 days depending on the salons product. Mine last 6 days. A few tips I suggest before you head off to your spray tanning appointment.
- Use a mild exfoliate scrub 24-48 hours prior to spray tanning. This removes dead skin.
- Do not wear make-up, perfume or deodorant. This is a BIG no no. Also don’t wear any type of lotion or moisturizer. You want the tanning solution to stick and go on evenly all over your body.
- Wear loose fitting clothing. I usually wear an old t-shirt and loose cotton bottoms. The tanning spray may rub off a bit even though you’re air dried after. No worries though, the tanning spray will wash out of most fabrics. I do not recommend wearing lycra, silk, or nylons for these have been known to stain.
- I have found after my tanning spray, wait a day and then moisturize on a regular basis. This seems to prolong the tan.
Remember spray tanning comes in different depths. Light color or dark. I live in a warm climate so when I travel back east for a winter visit you bet I want that golden glow tan without the suns damage. That’s a plus for me!
