How To Take Care of Your Spray Tan on Vacation
All the time we hear from clients that their tans do not last as long while on vacation. Well…let me tell you why. When you get into the chlorine filled pool or hot tub, or are going into the ocean, it will dry out your skin, and in turn will lessen the life of your tan. Although IF you are moisturizing with a high quality, unscented lotion and wearing a highly waterproof sunscreen it will help your tan last longer.
The reasoning behind why a spray tan typically will not last as long when being in the pool, ocean, or hot tub is because all of the chlorine and salt water will exfoliate your skin. We tell all of our clients to avoid hot showers and avoid scrubbing the skin because exfoliation of the skin will take the top layer of skin off, which is your tan.
To help keep your tan until the end of your vacation make sure to put on a highly waterproof sunscreen before getting into the pool or ocean. What this does is create a barrier between the salt/chlorine and your skin. Also make sure to use a high quality unscented lotion after you rinse off in the shower every day. This will keep your skin hydrated and your tan will thank you for that.
Just remember NO EXFOLIATION, MORE LOTION.
