Day Spa Experts Offer 5 Tips for Taking Care of Your Airbrush Tan, Ramsey, New Jersey

The warm glow of an airbrush tan looks great in every season. However, if you want the color to last long after you leave the day spa, there are a few maintenance tips you need to follow. To help you look and feel your best, the beauty professionals at The Fountain Spa in Ramsey and Hackensack, NJ, explain the steps you can take to preserve your radiant skin below. 

5 Tips for Preserving Your Airbrush Tan 

1. Exfoliate & Wax

For the three days leading up to your appointment, use a gentle exfoliator to remove dry skin. Additionally, book your facial or waxing service a couple of days prior to your tanning session. Waxing the day of your tan might cause dark pigments to accumulate in your pores, creating an uneven appearance.

2. Use an Oil-Free Moisturizer

Keep your skin moisturized after your airbrush tan, but avoid using an oil-based moisturizer, which can cause the color to streak and fade. Choose an oil-free moisturizer and apply twice daily to prevent dry skin from sloughing off. When moisturizing, pay special attention to areas of your arms and legs that are particularly dry, like elbows, knees, and feet.

3. Wear Dark, Loose Clothes

Immediately following your appointment at the day spa, wear flowing garments without straps. This will keep your tan even and consistent. Choosing dark clothes will prevent the pigment from accidentally staining the fabric.

4. Stay Dry for 8 Hours

Afterward, pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Avoid any water with chlorine in it for as long as you can, as the harsh chemicals can change the tone of your tan.

5. Use a Tan Extender

For long-lasting color, use an extender, which is available at most day spas. Apply the extender instead of regular moisturizer, smoothing it over your body evenly. Let your skin dry fully before getting dressed.
