Tips on Getting A Natural-Looking Spray Tan That Lasts and Looks Great
No matter the season, you can get a gorgeous natural glow by taking these tips into consideration when booking a spray tan. Tips provided by Sara, owner of Spray Tan Annapolis.
No one wants that orange-like, streaky, FAKE looking tan. It’s the biggest fear of anyone, especially if they are getting a spray tan for a special occasion or if it is their first time getting a spray tan. Here are some tips on getting a spray tan that looks totally natural and will last for over a week.
1. Ask questions:
Not all spray tan formulas are created the same. Ask what type of formula is used and if it is a “one color fits all.” If it is, steer clear. At Spray Tan Annapolis, we do custom color blending so your tan matches your natural skin tone.
2. Are you hormonal?
Ladies, did you know your spray tan results can vary based on hormones? If you have PMS or are menstruating, yes you can get a spray tan, but it could affect the color of your tan. So be sure to ask your spray tan artist how your hormones or cycle could affect your spray tan’s appearance.
3. Do you want a rapid tan or a regular one?
Rapid tans develop much more quickly than regular spray tans. (usually w/in 4 hours depending on the formula). That means if you have somewhere to be, you can shower sooner (with our rapid spray tans, you can shower after 4 hours).
4. Is there a finishing powder?
This is a really important question to ask. Why? Because without a finishing powder, you run the risk of getting sticky, staining your clothes, having your tan get rubbed off in certain areas, depending on the texture of your clothing, etc. At Spray Tan Annapolis, we use a luxurious finishing dust that includes shimmer, and smells amazing. No sticky, smelly after tan! Plus, if you are on the go, it means you can go about your life immediately. No drying, waiting or delays! Your tan is set by this finishing powder.
5. Ask how to prepare for your spray tan.
This includes prep steps like showering, exfoliating, what to wear, what not to wear, etc. We send an email to all clients who book in advance with tips on preparing for and making the most out of your spray tan.
Follow these tips, and you are sure to have a great spray tanning experience and get that gorgeous, natural glow that makes you look and feel like you were just at the beach!
