Have You Properly Prepared for Your Spray Tan?
Spray tanning is a nice alternative to tanning outdoors due to the dangers of the sun rays. With a spray tan, you will have a nice golden-brown look without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays. Tanning salons often offer a nice variety of spray tans for you to use to achieve the perfect glow for very little time and money. Once you have your appointment scheduled for the spray tan, do you know how to prepare? It is important to know the proper way to prepare your body for the tan so you the application process is seamless. Below are a few tips on how to prepare for the tanning process.

The Night Before or Six Hours Before Your Appointment
Prep time for a spray tan begins the night before or at least six hours before your appointment. You will need to shower and exfoliate the body using a soap or lotion. A salt or sugar scrub works best to remove dead skin cells so that your body is fresh to receive the spray tan. Shave where needed and be sure to not use any moisturizers or lotion on the skin.

Heading to the Appointment
Before leaving for your appointment, you will need to be sure to avoid wearing makeup or lotion of any kind. Wear loose clothing so that you will not be sweating or clothing will be sticking to the body after your spray tan. Wear an older swimsuit of a dark color and be sure to wash the suit as well as clothes later on that night after your appointment. Be sure to wear old clothing so you do not stain any favorite pieces.

After Your Appointment
After your spray tan, you want to take special precautions in order for your tan to stay on for the longest amount of time possible. Tanning salons such as Deep Tan/Tan by the Sea recommend that you wear loose clothing for at least 8 to 10 hours after. Do not shower or go in any water for swimming for 8 hours. Do not sweat, work out, etc.
