You just got your awesome, beautiful, bronze organic spray tan. It looks amazing! But how do you keep it that way as long as possible? Proper aftercare is essential to extend the life of your spray tan.
-Wear loose, dark clothing after your session.
-Sweating, getting wet, or applying lotion/makeup/etc before the first shower can cause streaks in your tan and prevent it from fully developing. Staying cool and dry until that first shower is key!
About 20-30 min after:
-Wash your palms ONLY with water (no soap) and thoroughly dry, taking care not to wet or rub the back of the hands with the towel. This ensures any solution you may have accidentally gotten on your palms by touching yourself before the tan was completely dry and settled will be washed away.
About 1.5-2 hours after:
-With water only, wash palms again, then LIGHTLY rinse the back of your hands. No scrubbing. Dry very gently by patting dry. Our hands have lots of small cracks and folds and often the skin is drier than the rest of our body. This ensures your hands will not develop too darkly and look natural!
2-12 hours after:
-You can take your first shower anytime after 2 hours. The longer you wait to shower, the darker your tan will develop. Most people like to shower around the 8 hour mark, but this is totally client preference. When you shower, use a sulfate-free body wash, like our Coconut Mint Body Wash or our Lemongrass Cleansing Foam. Sulfates strip the tan and may make it fade more quickly. Do not scrub vigorously. Gently wash your body and rinse well. Pat dry.
