ESPERANZA'S TIPS FOR A FLAWLESS TAN
Booked for a spray tan and not quite sure what you need to do before, during, or after? Here is some helpful guidance:
BEFORE YOUR TAN:
Shower all deodorants, moisturizers, and perfumes off your skin.
Exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and old fake tan.
Waxing should be done at least 24 hours before tanning and shaving at least 12hours before.
Avoid Aveno moisturizer for 2 days prior to your tan (It turns your tan green).
AFTER YOUR TAN:
DO NOT wear any tight clothing while marinating in your tan.
Esperanza advises to wear or bring loose clothing and not to wear a bra while developing.
Avoid water until after your initial rinse- if it is raining please bring an umbrella.
INITIAL RINSE AFTER YOUR TAN:
A quick 2-4-minute shower to rinse off all the bronzer, make sure the water runs clear before you step out of the shower.
Pat your skin dry with a towel.
Avoid body moisturizer for another 8 hours.
KEEPING YOUR TAN FLAWLESS
Moisturise every day.
Avoid long hot showers, spa baths, and chlorinated pools.
Avoid products with AHA in them e.g. Dove body wash as it strips your tan.
Pat your skin dry after every shower instead of rubbing.
Drink plenty of fluids to skin your skin hydrated.
REMOVING YOUR TAN
Between days 7-10, you will notice your tan has faded and is starting to either crack or wear patchy in certain areas. We advise using our perfect duo Tan Remover and Exfoliating Mitt (available to buy in-store) and combine with a hot shower or bath to remove the remanence of your old tan.
