First Time Spray Tan: What to Expect

First Time Spray Tan: What to Expect

What to Expect When Getting a Spray Tan

Getting a spray tan for the first time can be an exciting but somewhat nerve-wracking experience. Here's what you can expect during your session:

  • Preparation steps such as exfoliating your skin and avoiding lotions to ensure an even tan.
  • A consultation with the spray tan technician to determine the right shade for your skin tone.
  • The actual spray tan application process, which typically takes around 10-15 minutes.
  • Drying time, usually a few minutes, before you can get dressed.

How to Prepare for Your Spray Tan

Preparing your skin before a spray tan is crucial for a long-lasting and even tan. Follow these steps:

  • Exfoliate your skin to remove dead cells and create a smooth surface for the tan.
  • Avoid applying lotions, oils, or perfumes on the day of your appointment.
  • Wear loose, dark clothing to prevent staining after the tan application.
  • Consider removing makeup and jewelry before the session.

What to Wear During and After Your Spray Tan

During the spray tan session, you can wear disposable undergarments or opt for no clothing for a seamless tan. After the session, it's best to wear loose, dark clothing to avoid any smudges or stains on your clothes.

Caring for Your Sunless Tan

To ensure your spray tan lasts as long as possible, follow these aftercare tips:

  • Avoid any water contact and sweating until your rinse time.
  • Moisturize your skin daily to maintain the tan's longevity.
  • Avoid activities that can cause sweating or rubbing against the skin to prevent tan fading.
  • Gently pat your skin dry after showering to avoid rubbing off the tan.
