Spray Tan Tips!

For those of us in the pasty princess club who've decided to spray tan this winter season, here are a few tips and tricks to keep that tan looking gorgeous!

Don't forget that we offer mobile tanning! Grab your girlfriends and make it a party... 5 or more ladies, and the hostess (with the mostest) tans for free! And who does't like FREE!?
Before the tan... 

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! Exfoliating is a as simple as using a loofah or shaving during your shower. Pay extra attention to the knees, elbows, wrists and ankles as these areas have a larger amount of dead skin cells to shed. When you have finished exfoliating it is important to avoid using any moisturizers.

-Wear dark, loose-fitting clothing before and after your appointment. Tight clothing can rub against the fresh tan creating an uneven appearance.

-Avoid wearing any jewelry, as it will stop the skin beneath it from getting tan.

- Bring something to tie your hair back with. This will keep your hair from interfering with your tan.

After the tan...

- Sorry, no showering for 6 hours after the product is applied.

- Keep showers short and moisturize at least twice a day. This will keep your skin hydrated which makes the tan last longer. 

- After showing, make sure to pat yourself dry rather than rubbing your body with a towel.
