Spray tanning is one of those things that can turn out absolutely amazing & provide a slimming effect or it’s a shit show & you end up resembling an Oompa-Loompa. It is an unbelievable solution for when I want to give off the illusion that I “dropped” a cool five pounds. Depending on the season I average about three tans a month at Tan @ the Islands. Also, I never use the tanning beds because no one wants wrinkles or skin cancer!
Tips for a Successful Spray Tan:
+ Always make sure the tanning product is by Versa Spa or Mystic Tan.
+ Exfoliate/shower [ shave, loofah and scrub your face & neck [[ the Clarisonic is fab for this]] ] pre-tan. SHAVE too.
+ Remove all lotions, make-up, & jewelry before the tan.
+ Use the barrier cream on the insides of the hands.
+ Slap on Sticky Feet to protect the bottoms of the feet.
+ When spraying is complete: wash hands, wipe off your feetsies, & pat the rest of the body dry with two towels.
+ The neck area needs extra patting.
+ Keep the spray tan solution on for at least six to seven hours before a shower.
+ Do not wear white clothing after the tan.
P.S. Always get a mani afterwards, not before. The tanning solution ruins it. Get a pedicure on an entirely different day.
