Tips For a Long Lasting Sunless Tan , Manhattan, New York

Spring is here! Soon it will be warm enough to break out your shorts, tank tops, and light airy sundresses again. The only problem is, while you’ll be tempted to put on summer clothes before the mercury reaches 70, those pasty, pale legs will keep you in jeans for another month. Don’t worry! Beach Bum Tanning & Airbrush Salon has several relaxing ways to prepare your skin for sunny days.

One of the most popular ways to prepare for warm weather is Beach Bum’s sunless tanning. New York’s best sunless tanning salon has perfected their custom organic, vegan solution with over 150 different color combinations to create your skin’s ideal glow. But first, you need to know how to protect your sunless tan to guarantee you’ll be the sunniest you, for as long as possible.

Here are a few easy tips to get the best from your sunless tanning experience at Beach Bum:

  1. If possible, avoid touching your sunless tan with your palms before the first time you rinse. The active ingredient, DHA, may transfer to your hands (you can always remove it by gently rinsing with lukewarm water).
  2. Wait four to six hours before showering, and when you do, it should only be a quick rinse with lukewarm water to remove any excess solution. Remember to avoid any sweat inducing activity prior to your first shower.
  3. After your shower, be careful not to exfoliate or rub your skin with a towel. Simply pat or air dry to protect your color.
  4. Last but not least, be sure to moisturize, but only with high quality moisturizer. 

And finally, always remember to drink lots of water! This is always great advice, but staying hydrated is the best way to make your tan last.

Your Beach Bum sunless tanning specialist will advise you on the best products to protect your new springtime glow.
