Spray Tan

Essentially, spray tanning is accomplished by applying a product that mixes with the body’s chemistry to create a nice, even color. The intensity of the color is determined by individual body chemistry in conjunction with the color of product that is chosen. This is typically something that takes some trial and error in the beginning because each person typically has a different response to the same product.

One person may get a great tan while another needs to utilize a product that is little bit darker. It is always a good idea to start out with a lighter color and then proceed to progressively darker colors of spray tan because the last thing you want to do is choose a color that is too dark for your natural skin tone right from the start. In addition, some products have bronzer in them and some do not. This will also determine how tan the skin appears to be. Spray tanning is very easy. Essentially, the product is either applied to your body by someone else or you apply it yourself, depending on the product that you decide to use.

6 Benefits of Spray Tanning

We are always looking for the perfect way to achieve that bronzed look all year round. These days, there is an overwhelming amount of products and ways available that claim to help you get that sun-kissed look. Spray tanning, however, is one of the most efficient ways to achieve this and has a host of benefits that come along with it.

1. No harmful UV exposure

The risks of prolonged sun exposure are well documented and spray tanning is the best way of having that beautiful sun-kissed look without endangering your health. You are still able to get a natural looking tan without worrying about overexposing your skin and possibly, endangering your life.

2. Spray tanning is instant

There is no need to sit outside in the sun for hours in the hope that you will bronze up your skin or wait for ages while sticky self-tanners dry. Spray tanning will take up only 10-20 minutes of your time and is a perfect way to tan if you have a busy schedule!

3. It will make you feel great

Having gorgeous, sun-kissed skin can do wonders for your confidence and help you feel ready for any occasion. It can help to accentuate your best features whilst still looking natural and not too over the top. A beautiful spray tan can be a huge confidence booster.

4. Even, streak-free coverage

Most of us have gone to apply a sunless tanning lotion, only to find that a few hours later it has dried into a streaky uneven mess. Getting a spray tan done in a salon by an experienced professional is an excellent way to ensure this doesn’t happen and you can be confident in knowing that your tan will look as natural as possible.

5. Less messy

Not only do you have to wait hours for sunless self-tanners to dry, they will usually get all over the clothes you wear until you wash it off or even leave stains on your bed sheets while you wait for it to develop overnight. Spray tans are an excellent way to avoid this mess and you will never have to worry about staining clothes (or furniture!) when you get one.

6. Customize your shade

Spray tanning gives you the freedom to decide how dark or how light you would like your tan. With sun tanning you have no control over the color of your tan, not to mention the darker you want to be, the longer you must expose yourself to harmful UV rays. 


Of course, in order for you to get the best results there are a few things that you need do first. Obviously, you want to get the best results possible and that requires a certain amount of skin preparation in order to ensure that the tanning product has an opportunity to adhere to your skin equally from head to toe. Therefore, you should shave or wax a couple of days before you plan on going to the salon or applying the product. If you are using a product that does not contain bronzer or is not dark in color you may be able to get away with shaving or waxing the same day but in order to be on the safe side it is usually a better practice to do this about 48 hours before you plan on applying the spray tan product or visiting the salon.

If you happen to be using a product that is especially dark in color or contains bronzer this is an absolute must. Otherwise you are likely to wind up with dark patches everywhere that you have pores because the act of shaving or waxing opens up those pores and then the product will get stuck in there and you will end up looking like you have the measles. You should also exfoliate your skin. Most people do this the day before they decide to use the product. A nice shower with a loofah that is rough enough to get rid of any dead skin cells will do the trick. Of course, make sure that you cover your hair with a shower cap before the product is applied and do not wear deodorant or makeup. This will prevent the product from adhering to the skin and you will wind up with a nice tan neck and a pale face or you will be unable to lift your arms because your skin there is noticeably lighter than the rest of your skin. Finally, it is a good idea to apply a very thin coat of Vaseline or a similar product to certain areas of the body right before you use a spray tanning product. Applying this to places like your elbows and your knees or the palms of your hands will prevent the product from getting into the creases of those areas and creating dark lines. The same can be said for your lips. Simply apply a thin coat of lip balm before you apply the spray tan product and you should be good to go.
