How to Prepare for Your Spray Tan Appointment

Spray tanning is a popular alternative to sun tanning. It can provide a more even and natural-looking tan without requiring prolonged sun exposure. Sun tanning can damage the skin and increase the risk of skin cancer.

Spray tanning is a safe and effective way to achieve a sun-kissed glow without being exposed to potentially harmful UV rays. UV radiation from the sun or tanning beds can cause skin aging, sunburn, and even increase the risk of skin cancer.

Spray tanning is applying a tanning solution to the skin to produce a temporary sunless tan. Typically, the solution contains DHA (dihydroxyacetone), a colorless sugar that reacts with the amino acids in the skin's outermost layer to produce a brown color. Spray tanning can be done manually by a trained technician or in a spray tanning booth.

Benefits of Spray Tanning:

  1. Spray tanning is a popular way to achieve a natural-looking glow for special occasions because it is a quick and easy way to add color to your skin without exposing yourself to harmful UV rays from the sun.

  2. Spray tanning can make your skin appear darker and more toned, and may help accentuate your muscle definition and make your muscles appear more defined.

  3. Spray tanning can be beneficial for photo shoots, especially for models or individuals who want to achieve a specific look or improve their appearance in photographs. Spray tanning can help to even out skin tone, conceal blemishes or imperfections, and give the skin a healthy, sun-kissed glow, all of which can look great in photos.

What to do Before Getting Spray Tan:

  1. Exfoliate your skin before your spray tan appointment to ensure an even tan. This removes dead skin cells and allows the spray tan to adhere better to the skin.

  2. Moisturize: After exfoliating, moisturize your skin to keep it hydrated and soft. This will make the spray tan last longer and fade more evenly.

Make sure your skin is hair-free prior to tanning to ensure a better-quality tan. It is recommended to shave or wax any unwanted hair a day or two before the appointment. This will give the skin enough time to recover from any irritation caused by shaving or waxing, while also ensuring that the skin is free of any residual shaving cream or wax that could interfere with the spray tan application.

It is recommended that you have smooth skin before getting a spray tan to ensure that the tan applies evenly and looks more natural. This is because hair can interfere with the application of the spray tan solution, causing it to stick to the hair and create an uneven or patchy appearance.

Proper skin preparation and aftercare are essential for achieving the best results. This includes exfoliating before applying the spray tan, avoiding sweating or getting wet for several hours after the spray tan, and moisturizing regularly to help the tan last longer.

What to do After Getting Spray Tan:

  1. Wear loose-fitting, dark clothing after getting a spray tan to avoid rubbing off the tan or staining your clothes.

  2. Avoid water, sweating, or getting wet for several hours after application for at least 8 hours to allow the solution to fully develop.

  3. If you notice any uneven areas or missed spots, you can use a self-tanner or ask your spray tan technician for touch-ups before the event.

  4. Remember that a spray tan will only last 5-10 days, so plan accordingly to ensure that your tan looks great for the duration of the event.

Take note:

  1. Some people may have an allergic reaction to the ingredients in the solution, as with any cosmetic product, so it is essential to consult a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.

  2. A spray tan is not a substitute for building muscle through exercise and strength training. It does not actually increase your muscle mass or definition. Muscle definition comes from building lean muscle through regular exercise and following a healthy diet.

  3. It is important to note that spray tanning does not provide any protection from the sun's harmful UV rays so you should still wear sunscreen when spending time outside. Overall, it's a great option for anyone looking to get a beautiful, healthy-looking tan without jeopardizing their skin's health.

  4. Additionally, be sure to avoid using any oils, lotions, or other products on the skin before the spray tan appointment, as they can create a barrier that prevents the spray tan solution from properly adhering to the skin.

  5. Keep in mind that not all spray tans are created equal, and selecting the appropriate shade and formula for your skin tone and the lighting of the photo shoot is crucial.
