Now that you have a fresh spray tan lets go over how to properly care for it so it will last a long time. Typically a spray tan will last seven to 10 days. Please make sure that you properly prepare for the spray tan by taking a shower, shaving and exfoliating your skin with a rough loofah. I recommend using a salux loofah. Please exfoliate your face with a gentle scrub or a clarisonic brush. Please follow your tanning artists instructions and leave the spray tan on your skin for the desired number of hours. If you are doing the Express tan your first shower is only water, no soap or body wash! After that you may use a sulfate free body wash like Norvell, California Tan, Amir, Hempz or Dr Bronners. Make sure that you are not scrubbing in the shower with any wash cloths or loofahs. Always pat dry when exiting the shower, never rub dry. As soon as you dry off apply a tan extending body lotion to the skin. I like Dc Crown of Gold, So Naughty Nude, and Hempz lotions. I have lotions and body washes for sale, please ask me when you book your appointment. I also have salux loofahs for sale. Please avoid chlorine, hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, waxing, bar soaps, sulfates and facials after a spray tan. For the face please use a sulfate free face wash such as Origins checks and Balances, Fresh Soy Face wash or Yes To Cucumbers. Always moisturize your face after you wash it and please stay away from retinols, salicylic acid, scrubs and benzoil peroxide. Acne products and Obaji products will strip off a spray tan. Do not use a Clarisonic brush or Toner after a spray tan. Most toners contain alcohol and will dry out your skin.
