Sun’s out, the gun’s out. Let the spray tan guns shoot you for a natural tanning experience like never before. Here is what you need to know before you go out for a spray tan.
Exfoliate In Advance
For getting the best natural spray tan, you need to start by exfoliating your body. Exfoliation guarantees even application of the spray tan. This is because, by exfoliating your body, you remove all the dead skin cells and make your skin texture free. If not done properly, you might end up looking patchy as the dead cells will pick up extra colour. Exfoliating 2 to 3 days before the big day can make you flawless and let the natural spray tan last longer than expected.
Be Careful With The Device You Use To Shave
There are many shaving creams that come with inbuilt moisturization. Even many razors have a moisturizing strip on them. This temporary moisturization leaves a film of moisture on the shaved areas and causes a problem while spray tanning. The moisture strip works against the tan colour and which is why the colour doesn’t get absorbed well. In case you use a razor, or any other way of shaving make sure you wash your hands and legs really well. By doing this the layer of moisturization above your skin gets easily rinsed off leaving no residue on the body. Many times customers experience lighter knees than the rest of their body colour after getting tanned. This is because the layer of moisture was not removed properly while they were rinsing aftershave.
Do Not Over Moisturize
Too much of anything is not good. Many of the customers think that for getting the best spray tan in OKC they need to pamper their skin really well. This is true but over-moisturizing is not what should be done. If you moisturize your skin too much, there are chances that your moisturizer leaves a tint and this may affect the whole tanning process. As mentioned before, moisturizing too much crease a colour barrier and this certainly defeats the purpose of spray tanning. Hence it is always advised to use a cleanser with a balanced pH because that will not leave any residue on the skin. It would efficiently clean the skin and make it tan ready.
Embrace Your Best Friend i.e Talc-Free Baby Powder
Talc-free baby powder is an organic arrowroot powder that makes a visible difference in the process of the spray tan in OKC. When you apply baby powder just before your spray tan session, you tend to get rid of the excess moisture from the spray tan and let it dry at speed. Try using a big fluffy brush to apply ye talc-free baby powder all over your body before spray tan. Remember to apply it in the areas where you sweat a lot. For example, the creases of your arms and legs need special care and need to be dry before the tanning process. This way you will create an essential barrier between your skin and clothes. This will also help in absorbing all the moisture that you experience when you sweat.
Keep Your Pet, Clothes and Partner Away
As you know your pets love to lick you. And the intensity and urge of licking become stronger after you are home from the tanning session. This is because that tanning formula is mostly derived from sugar. So if you do not want your tan to fade away from the areas full of slurpy kisses by your dog, avoid being around your pet for at least a day. Coming to your partners, tight hugs create a mixture if their weather outside is hot. If you have just returned from the tanning session, avoid this unwanted creation of moisture within the first 8 hours. While your tan is on the way to developing and settling down, even the littlest of moisture is what needs to be avoided. For the best natural spray tan results, you need to wear long, loose clothes.
