How to Take Care of Your Skin After a Spray Tan, St. Charles, Missouri

A spray tan is the perfect way to give your skin a little boost after the harsh winter, especially before beach season is in full swing. However, getting that perfect tan is only half of the equation. The other half is to maintain it and keep it from fading with the proper aftercare. To help you understand how to effortlessly maintain that beautifully bronzed look, Spa TAN in Chesterfield, MO, offers a helpful guide.

Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing

Don’t wear tight or constricting clothing, such as yoga pants, as this can disrupt the development of your tan. Instead, dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes that give your skin plenty of room to breathe, and wear flip flops or sandals with an open toe. You should also avoid red fabrics, as the dye can have an adverse reaction to a spray tan, leading to a green appearance.

Avoid Vigorous Exercise & Bathing

Next, it’s important to avoid anything that will make your skin wet, whether that’s sweating, showering, or swimming. Avoid vigorous exercise for at least five hours after your spray tan, and hold off on showering for at least eight to 10 hours. If your skin is exposed to water too early, this can inhibit the full development of your tan, and the results won’t last as long. When it is time to shower, gently blot your skin dry with a towel and avoid vigorous rubbing, as this can exfoliate the skin and remove your tan.  

Skip Spa Treatments for a Few Days

Your best bet is to have these treatments done prior to your spray tan or wait a few days.
