Tan Tips

*Avoid alcohol based products, alcohol can dry out the skin and can cause the tan to fade quicker and unevenly.  

*Avoid products containing alpha hydroxy acids. Products with these chemical compounds will accelerate the fading process of your tan which will shorten the life of your spray tan.

*Avoid hot showers, baths or soaking in pools or hot tubs. Any extended period of time in water will fade your spray tan.

*Always wear sunscreen when venturing outdoors. Spray tan solution does not contain sunscreen and will not protect your skin.

*Moisturize daily, starting the day after you get the spray tan. Hydrated skin makes your tan last longer and slows down the process of natural skin exfoliation.  Avoid alcohol based products which will dry out the skin and can cause the tan to fade quicker and unevenly. You may also want to use a tan extender to moisturize and extend the life of your spray tan.
