How to make your Spray Tan Last

Get mo’ from your glow

With proper care and maintenance can preserve the illusion of a tropical vacay for up to 10 days or more. Yes Beauties. Two weekends of tanned gloriousness for the price of one. And you thought your Thursday Spray Tan would only do you until Sunday afternoon…. Tsk Tsk.

1. Get a Professional Spray Tan worth maintaining

It’s true what they say, an artist is only as good as their canvas. If you start with a great base - you’re on to a winner! Choose a hydrating, green-based tan that will nourish your skin and help the formula last longer. Spray Tans formulated with Kakadu Plum, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E like HYDR8TAN actively hydrates and firms the skin whilst providing a flawless, professional Spray Tan finish that lasts.

2. Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your appointment

No more and no less. Giving your bod a good scrubbing the day before your tan removes dead skin cells, preparing your skin to readily absorb the tanned goodness. A thorough scrub will slough off any old tan too! Use a specially designed Spray Tan erasing mitt to buff away any patchiness and reveal soft, fresh skin ready to get gorgeously golden!

3. Skip the moisturiser

Just on the day of your tan. Moisturisers interrupt the absorption of your tan which means you’re tan may not last as long as it should or reach the level of colour desired. After you tan, use a natural moisturiser everyday to keep your skin hydrated. Avoid moisturisers with excessive perfumes and additives as these can dry out your skin causing your tan to crack and fade. Look for a non-greasy formula packed with essential oils for naturally nourished skin.

4. The Great Extender

Let this be your Spray Tan BFF. An excellent Spray Tan extender like the Bronzing Custard from Vani-T will deposit a small amount of colour with each application to extend the life of your Spray Tan. Ritualistically applying the Bronzing Custard every second day will ensure your tan will easily last into its second week.

5. No Soap

We all love a good soap opera, but we’re not singing its praises in the shower. Soap dries skin like no other and is the enemy number one when it comes to your glorious Spray Tan. Use a gentle everyday cleanser to wash your skin - not strip it. Follow with a nourishing body moisturiser or your tan extender immediately after showering to allow for better product absorption (your pores are open after a warm shower!).

If you’re a religious Spray Tanner, or newly converted, looking after your Spray Tan can be an easy addition to your daily beauty routine. For a salon professional spray tan, book online at your favourite Brazilian Beauty salon and get ready to glow.
