Spring is finally here! While the sunshine is more than welcome, it’s not quite warm enough to work on your upcoming summer tan. Here at Beauty Foundations Clinic we offer professional spray tanning services to help get you ready for the warmer weather. Why not welcome spring with open arms and a flawless, sunless tan? 

Spray tans are becoming an increasingly popular way to achieve a healthy, bronzed look without needing to lay out in the sun. Prolonged exposure to the sun’s harsh UV rays can deeply affect the health and appearance of your skin, especially as we age. Not only does it put you at risk for skin cancer, but it can cause premature wrinkles, age spots and a rough, textured feeling to the skin. Spray tans are a safer and more effective way to achieve your perfect summer glow. Here’s some tips and tricks for coming in to receive your tan!

Before Your Treatment

On the day of your appointment, be sure not to apply any type of perfume, deodorant or oils. This can create a barrier between your skin and the tanning mist, and result in an uneven application. Any waxing or shaving should be done 24 hours before treatment to reduce sensitivity, and you will need to exfoliate your body the night before to remove any dead skin cells that the tan may cling to. Finally, you will need to wear dark, loose fitting clothing to your appointment. This ensures that your tan will not stain your clothing, and that your clothing will not rub off the freshly applied tanning mist. 

During and After Your Treatment

The tanning process takes approximately 15 minutes to cover your whole body. The bronzing mist dries within a few minutes, allowing you to dress soon after the treatment is completed. Avoid touching the tan excessively throughout the day so as not to rub it off. Your tan will continue to develop after your treatment, meaning you will have to avoid showering or bathing for a minimum of four hours. Do not participate in any physical activity that may cause perspiration for at least twelve hours following the application. 

Aftercare

You’ll be able to prolong the lifespan of your tan by engaging in proper aftercare. We recommend using St Tropez products, such as the body moisturizer, body butter and body polish to maintain your tan and ensure an even fading. Try to avoid rubbing your skin after showering and instead pat yourself dry. Swimming pools should be avoided as chlorine may bleach your tan. Most importantly though, don’t forget to flaunt your gorgeous, glowing tan!
