3 Tips to Maintain the BEST Spray Tan

Hello babes. We are halfway through the week and I wanted to share three of my favorite ways to get the most out of my spray tan with you. I hardly ever tan in the sun, so I rely on spray tans for most of the year to keep that golden glow. I’ve heard that booths can be good, but I personally go to a person to get sprayed. I like the results better.

Through trial and error, I have found sure fire ways to get the best looking tan every single time. Here we go :

Tip #1 : Dry Brush & Shave BEFORE

This is a big one. I always dry brush my entire body and then hop in the shower before every spray tan. I shave beforehand because every time you shave afterwards a little bit of your spray tan will come off..no bueno. The less you shave, the longer your spray tan will last. Dry brushing removes any old uneven spray tan {I spray tan about once a week} and dead skin, so you get the perfect application.

Tip #2 : Wear Loose Fitting Clothing

You definitely don’t want to show up for your spray tan wearing your work {or workout} clothes. Don’t wear anything tight because it’s REALLY hard to put on with a sticky tan…and it will screw up your tan. You will end up with weird lines and marks where your clothes cut into you. Also, don’t wear a bra until after you wash off your tan if possible. This will prevent any markings in that area.  I like to wear a loose fitting maxi dress because it’s super easy to take on and off.

Tip #3 : Apply LOTS of Lotion

LOTION, LOTION, LOTION. This is HUGE for maintaining that golden glow for at least a week. The dryer your skin is, the faster it peels, and you can say goodbye to your tan. This means you’re spending more money trying to keep your spray tan fresh more often, so moisturize as often as possible. At least do it every time you get out of the shower. This is the best way to lock in the moisture.

I have found that this combination of things really help to give me the BEST results. Do you have any tips that I’m forgetting?

Justin and I are having a date night tonight, so I’m off to get ready. I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday.

XOXO – Sara
