Your Spray Tan Questions Answered!

Back in college I was that tanning bed person. Being that girl who battled with severe acne my entire life, I used the tanning bed as a way to cover up my horrible skin. When I started to get chemical peels to treat my acne, I learned the harmful effects of tanning beds and the sun’s harmful rays. My friend Whitney introduced me to the spray tan, something I never thought I would learn to love. I got my second spray tan last night and I couldn’t be happier! 

I went to Glamour Girl Airbrush Tan where the owner Riane, customizes your tan based on your skin type. She makes you feel so comfortable and takes pride in her work to ensure you are happy with your outcome. 

How do I look???

Here are your spray tan questions answered!
Why get a spray tan?
Because it’s safe and MUST better than a tanning bed or the damaging rays of the sun. The active ingredient is DHA (DiHydroxy Acetone), which reacts with the skin’s amino acids to produce a golden tan. 
What do I wear?
Wear dark, loose fitting cotton clothing 8 hours following your tan while your tan develops.  Do not wear tight bra straps, sports bras, or tight shoes and socks while your tan is developing.
What do I do before I tan?
Exfoliate very well before you tan. Shave 12 hours before your session. Make sure your skin is free of any lotion, moisturizer, perfume, makeup, and deodorant you want the color to soak in your skin more. Get your manicure, pedicure, and waxing done one day or more prior to appointment.
How long will my spray tan last?

On average, your sunless tan will last 7 to 10 days.  It also depends on how long you maintain your spray tan. Make sure to use lotion twice daily and wait a minimum of 8 hours to shower after your tan.  If you can wait -12 hours is better.  

Will I turn orange or streaky?

That all depends on where you go and how you take care of your tan. When you take your first shower after your spray tan make sure you gently scrub all of the parts that look streaky or discolored, which can happen while you sleep.
