Get that nasty skin off- Exfoliate
Exfoliation is KEY for a great Spray Tan!
Well….what I meant by “get that nasty skin off” was, how to get all that old, dry, and cracked skin off. Not a lot of people know how to prepare for a spray tan, but the number one thing you need to do is to exfoliate. It’s so important to have a fresh layer of skin to have as the new pallete for an awesome, one-of-a-kind Lady of Sun spray tan! It’s going to make your tan last longer, and also..who doesn’t love having soft, fresh skin?
The first step to take when exfoliating before you get an airbrush tan is to take a hot bath or shower, our favorite thing to do here at Lady of Sun is to take a hot bath with one of our awesome bath bombs. Our bath bombs contain baking soda which helps to exfoliate, and Shea butter which helps to soften the skin..PLUS they smell amazing and are super relaxing! As well as bath bombs, we offer a great line of body scrubs which contain natural oils, different types of organic salts, and you can even add your own essential oils to make it smell how you would like.
The second step you need to take is to use a loofa, washcloth, or one of our natural sea sponges to scrub the dry skin off of your body. Once you notice that your skin is softer and more vibrant, you know you did the job right. Additionally, along with all of those steps, you should shave before you come in. Instead of shaving with your normal shaving cream though, which can create a barrier on your skin, preventing the tan from absorbing correctly, use some hair conditioner or our natural body wash that we carry which can extend your tan for up to an extra week.
Lastly remember not to freak out over all these steps to help your prepare for the best tan ever, you are going to absolutely fall in love with your tan regardless, we promise…but it is so much better to be overprepared than under!
