How to Make Your Spray Tan Last

Spray TanGetting a spray tan can be a wonderful and exciting experience. You leave the salon feeling like a confident, bronzed babe. You may get more attention and compliments than you usually do and you begin to like it. Unfortunately, a few days later you might wake up and look in the mirror to find your natural hue staring back at you. Is it possible to make your spray tan last longer? The answer is yes!

It’s important to keep in mind that most spray tans last anywhere from 5-10 days depending on the quality of the spray tanning products. However, there are a few things you can do to keep that glow just a tad bit longer.

1) Exfoliate: Exfoliating your skin is absolutely necessary pre-tan in order to get the most even skin tone post-tan. Exfoliate gently every few days in order to help remove dead skin cells and perfect those difficult areas like the elbows and knees.

2) Moisturize: Hydrated skin holds a tan much better than dried out skin. Use that moisturizer or body oil daily to keep your skin both soft and tan.

3) Add extra color: Using bronzer body sprays and gradual tanning lotions such as Jergens’ products, in between body spray tanning can help you maintain the “I- just-stepped-off-the- beach” look.
