A Guide to Making Your Spray Tan Last, St. Charles, Missouri

Spring is here, and with it comes warmer weather and thoughts of summer fun. Feeling confident and attractive in short-sleeved tops, shorts, and dresses is easy with a sunless spray tan. Here, the professionals at Chesterfield, MO’s Spa TAN offer their expert tips for making your glow last.

3 Tips to Make a Spray Tan Last Longer

1. Prepare Your Skin

Extend your tan with properly prepared skin. Exfoliate daily, beginning three days before your appointment. Your last shower and exfoliation should be a few hours before your session; don’t use lotion on any area that will be sprayed. Skip the deodorant and makeup. If you are planning to wax your legs and bikini area, make sure that process is complete at least 24 hours before you tan.

2. Wear Loose Clothing

Wear loose clothes to your appointment, avoiding underwear and socks if that is comfortable for you. Put on flip-flops or sandal slip-ons. Although these kinds of shoes can leave a line, it’s easy to correct this with gentle exfoliation. 

3. Follow Directions

Your tanning professional will have instructions for you. Find out when you should shower and which products are friendliest to the spray tan you’ve received. Typically, oil-based moisturizers and cleansers will degrade your glow, so stick with natural products for that first shower. It is key to stay hydrated, however, so drink plenty of water and use a high-quality, natural moisturizer as part of your daily skin care routine.

Tanning brings out your natural beauty and makes it look like you’ve spent the whole year relaxing in the sun.
