We’ve already established that your spray tan is a team sport, and that doesn’t end when you exist the tent. Yes, you’ll be a glowing, bronzed goddess in that moment, but you can make your spray tan artist (and your skin and yourself) happier than ever by doing three simple things.
…because it does. Keeping your skin moisturized is the difference between a tan that lasts longer than a week and fades evenly and beautifully, and turning into a scaly potato chip five days post-tan. Moisturize your skin (face and body) morning and night. You should totally be doing this anyway, spray tan or no spray tan. Bonus points for using Blend Butter BFF!
I know I just said to moisturize, but let’s dig a little deeper on that, shall we? Take a look at the ingredients of your favorite moisturizer. If you see things like mineral oil or petroleum, it’s time to break up with it and find a better alternative. That’s why we created our very own body butter. Good for your skin and your spray tan.
A note about skincare: We LOVE skincare. Like, it’s a borderline unhealthy obsession. We’ll never suggest you ditch your favorite facial skincare. However, please be aware that certain heavy-duty skincare ingredients can strip the tan on your face and neck. Hardcore acne-fighting and anti-aging ingredients that you might find in your skincare aren’t always the kindest to your tan. Seeing the need to help tans last longer on delicate facial skin, we developed our tanning water that can be used daily!
Now that we know your spray tan loves moisture, it only makes sense that staying hydrated internally helps your spray tan last even longer. Drinking enough water is, of course, essential to your health, but it’s also essential for your spray tan! Pro tip: add some cucumber or berries to your water to make it a bit more fun to drink.
…is only an appointment + some moisture away! Have you noticed that the things that help your spray tan last are things we should be doing anyway? Following these tips will stretch the length of your custom spray tan, but also make you healthier and more confident all around!
