If you are getting ready for your first ever spray tan, you may be feeling a little bit nervous about what to expect. There is nothing to fret about, but it does help if you know how to prepare so that your spray tan is effective and looks as amazing as you expect it to. So, read on for some important spray tanning advice.

Get rid of those dead skin cells

It is a good idea to exfoliate a day before you have a spray tan. Use a natural and gentle exfoliator, which will buff away dry skin before your treatment. This will make your spray tan last a lot longer. Try our Exfoliating Scrub for perfect results every time.

Drink plenty of water

They say that beauty starts within, and that’s why you should drink plenty of water. This will make sure that your skin is in the best possible condition for a spray tan, stopping the tan from going patchy once it starts to fade. 

Don’t moisturise for at least 24 hours

Moisturising is probably part of your daily routine, but you should avoid doing so for at least 24 hours before your spray tan. This includes moisturising shower creams. This is because moisturising will create a barrier between your skin and the tan, which makes it harder for that desired golden glow to develop. However, using OIL-FREE moisturisers like our Aloe Vera wont prevent that beautiful tan from developing.

As your mother told you; you need to eat your greens

Green vegetables keep your skin hydrated and smooth because they boost your L-lysine levels, so now is the perfect time to stock up on avocado, kale, and spinach. This will help to make your tan long lasting, even, and smooth. 

Shave or wax at least 24 hours before your treatment

Finally, it is important to shave or wax at least a day prior to your treatment. If you are waxing, 48 hours is ideal because it allows your pores to close.
