Become a Tan-A-Holic-Its Safe
In a time where our skin is exposed to an ever increasing number of harmful chemicals and artificial additives, we at On The Spot Beauty Bar have worked hard to ensure that our products we use remain the purest in the world. To achieve this, we have tanning solutions made from Organic, Natural and Hypo-allergenic ingredients containing:
Even when you’re not spray tanning, exfoliation is a good idea, but it’s an even better idea when you are spray tanning. Exfoliating cleans your pores, removes unwanted residues from soaps, shampoos, fragrances (and who knows what else you touched today), and best of all it also restarts your skin cycle by removing all the older skin, bringing you to a clean slate. This is perfect for spray tanning because the fresher your skin is the longer you have before your tan starts fading, and because exfoliating removes those residues, which can actually create a barrier between you and your tan. By exfoliating properly you can extend the life of your tan by up to three days!
It is okay to shave the morning of your spray tan, but only if the service is still a few hours away, and only if you have time to exfoliate your skin afterwards. The reason these requirements are in place is because shaving opens up the pores in your skin and the shaving cream leaves a residue on your skin, both of which can negatively impact a tan’s life expectancy and performance. If you absolutely must shave right before your tan, do so with lukewarm water, a brand new razor, and an oil-free shaving cream; the results won’t be perfect, but they’ll be better than the alternative!
For pretty obvious reasons, skin peeling from sun burns can wreak havoc on a spray tan. In fact, the results are often so unpredictable that many spray tan professionals will refuse to spray you if you’ve been recently burned! The reason for this is simple: a sun burn causes your skin to slough off in big patches, resulting in a horribly uneven tan that can virtually dissapear overnight as you peel. The best advice? Wait until after your skin has recovered before getting your next spray tan–and of course: don’t get burned!!
