Things to Know Before Spray Tanning

Things to Know Before Your First Spray Tan

Spray tanning is a growing trend that is sweeping across the country, from New York City to Tennessee. There are many reasons why people turn to spray tans rather than traditional tanning methods: they’re less expensive, much faster and provide more even coverage. But before you head out for your first spray tan session, there are some things you should know about how the process works! In this blog post we’ll cover what to expect at your first appointment and what products will be used during the treatment.

What to know before getting a Spray Tan?

Spray tanning is a popular alternative to traditional indoor tanning. There are many reasons why people turn to spray tans including cost, speed and even coverage.

But before your first session there are some things you should know about the process! Below you’ll find what to expect during your appointment as well as what products will be used.

What to Expect:
When you arrive for your appointment, a technician will greet you and ask about how tanning has effected your skin in the past and any allergies or sensitivities that may exist. These conversations enable us to create spray tans that are personalized to each client’s unique needs so they don’t develop any adverse reactions.

  • Next, a technician will map out the specific areas of your body to be sprayed with a special stencil and mark those spots with marker so we can ensure that you get an even coverage.
  • Finally, once everything is mapped out, it’s time for the spray tan! The technician will then go over all the products that will be used during your session, and once you’re ready they’ll apply them.
  • The technician may also recommend a post tanning moisturizing lotion for after care to keep your skin soft and hydrated.

What Products Will Be Used:

  • We use organic tanning solution for our spray tans.
  • We use a UV resistant moisturizing lotion to keep your skin soft and hydrated post tanning.
  • Aftercare products are available for purchase in store as well!

Are Spray Tan Safe ??

The most common question that comes up when someone is considering a spray tan for the first time is whether or not it’s safe. It sounds like such an obvious thing to ask, but there are people out there who use self-tanners without knowing what they’re doing and end up with some serious sunburns!

But at Skin pH, we take the safety of our clients very seriously.

We use 100% organic spray tanning solution that is safe for your skin and produces a natural looking finish in just one session! We also make sure to sanitize all equipment before each service so you can be confident that no harmful bacteria will enter into contact with your body.

What to wear during Spray tanning?

Spray tans can be done on any part of the body, but it’s important to know what clothes you’ll want to wear before they start applying!

If your spray tan is a full-body treatment, then all that will need to come off are shoes and underwear. If only lower half of your body will be sprayed (legs and/or arms), then you can wear underwear or a bathing suit.

Regardless of whether it’s full-body, lower body or some other area to be sprayed, skin color underwear is always recommended! This ensures that there won’t be any unwanted lines on your skin before the tan has fully developed.

Spray Tan Before And After

The color of the spray tan will develop over a period of hours, so it’s important to be patient when waiting for your results!

For best results, we recommend that you wait 12-24 hours before showering or going in swimming pools. During this time, it is normal for people to notice skin irritation and/or itchiness, which is caused by the product that is being applied to their body.

After a shower, it’s important to apply moisturizer as well! The UV resistant lotion we will use during your session can help keep skin hydrated and soft while also preventing any sunburn patches from developing on the skin.

What Product To Wear Home

Underwear is recommended to ensure there are no lines on the skin before the tan has fully developed.
Moisturizer should be applied after a shower, or anytime your skin starts feeling dry and itchy from our spray tanning products.

How Long Does A Spray Tan Last?

The thing with spray tans is that they can last anywhere from a few days to more than two weeks. It all depends on how often you’re in contact with water, what type of soap you use and your skin’s overall condition.

If you take the time to follow our recommendations for after care (including moisturizing lotion and avoiding pool water), then you should be able to enjoy a beautiful tan for the long haul.
