Caring for your spray tan

So..You finally got a spray tan and you love it! Or maybe you have been getting them but they don’t last very long or fade poorly (You know, when your skin looks like a lizard…not very attractive!) But either way you want to take care of it so it lasts!
Problems most likely arise from not knowing the best tips to take care of your tan. Many salons don’t tell you this information (Hey, quicker fade= quicker rebooking) But don’t fear tanners!  I am here to tell you the best ways to prolong your beautiful tan and help it fade as natural as possible so you can get your moneys worth.
Now I know we all lead busy lifestyles and the last thing you want to think about when you are tired is to take care of your tan. But trust me, it is worth it. I have had plenty of nights with a little bubbly and just wanted to get under the covers..but I sucked it up and did my aftercare. And my beautiful tan lasted for a long time.
1) First thing is to moisturize. I am amazed at how many of my clients tell me that they skipped this step as they were afraid to use it! Moisturizer is your BFF when you have an airbrush tan. The tan is on the outer layer of your skin & proper hydration will prolong the exfoliation process. You MUST moisturize at least 2x a day. I recommend in the morning and the evening & use a lotion that does not have drying alcohols. I recommend using products specially formulated for spray tanning. They do not contain drying alcohols and have ingredients that will nourish your tan. Use a tan extender as well. This will add the DHA back into your skin causing it to last longer, But don’t overload as too much on some skin tones can give you an unnatural tone.
2) Avoid hot baths and hot showers & bar soaps. Those are the worst for the tan. Use a gentle shower gel

3) After your tan wait at least 24 hours to shave as shaving can cause fading. Try to shave only as needed & use a sharp new razor. I also recommend conditioner instead of shaving cream.

4) Exfoliating  or using any harsh salt scrub within 8-10 days of getting spray tan is a big no no!. So no loofahs or washcloths!

 5) Bug spray can cause your tan to fade

6) When getting out of the shower BLOT your skin with a towel. Pat dry and DO NOT RUB!

7)  Anti aging products that exfoliate or dry the skin, Accutane and Salicylic acids can cause issues. Antibiotics and other medications that affect your skin can also affect your tan.

8) Avoid toners containing alcohols or Witch Hazel in higher amounts.Look where they are listed in the ingredient list, if in the top 3 do not use.

9)  Avoid dove soap, wax or Depilatory hair removal products ( Nair, Veet, etc)

10)  Avoid any waxing, massages or any spa services ( no pedicures, just polish changes)

11) Avoid any baby oil, mineral oil or massage oil

Have you been thinking about starting an Airbrush tanning business? Or maybe looking to add it to your current salon services? I offer spray tan training and consulting services. I have a proven portfolio and skills and can provide you with excellent training to help you succeed no matter where your business is located. With skin cancer on the rise and people taking steps more than ever to prevent sun damage, airbrush tanning can be a very lucrative business either full or part time as long as you do it right. If you are looking to add this service to your existing salon or wanting to start a mobile service I would love to assist you.

 Spray tan training can save you time and money that can be better spent getting new clients and making money! When I started spray tanning there were many questions that I had, ranging from my spray technique down to extensive marketing questions. I had to research everything on my own which wasted many valuable hours. That was because I could not find an affordable training program that was customized to MY needs.

My training course is unique because it is not just learning how to spray. It also includes follow up training via email or phone. It is a truly personalized service created by me from the eyes of someone who has been in your shoes and not a cookie cutter training program. In the beauty industry you really need to do things right in the beginning so you can build a great reputation and have repeat clients. If you do not take the time to perfect your skill, understand how the skin can react & are just “winging” it your spray tans will reflect that. Plus you can open yourself up to liability issues. In this industry it just takes a few unhappy clients to tarnish your reputation. Other beauty professionals take the time to train to deliver the best possible service in their trade and so should you.

 I will consult with you on range of topics including some of the following:

  • How to determine client skin type and what percentage of solution to use on them
  • How much solution to use
  • Perfecting your spray technique
  • Equipment recommendations
  • Pre and Post tan aftercare
  • Medication and allergy interactions
  • Spray tan solution recommendations
  • Safety concerns for mobile technicians
  • Marketing advice
  • Consent forms
  • Networking and utilizing social media to your advantage
  • Website consulting
  • Liability insurance recommendation

 I provide one on one attention to you and your staff members unlike other companies that just offer a basic online course or a power point presentation/video. You also will get a certificate of completion & added to my referral network of airbrush tanners (outside of Palm beach county).

You can even see if you qualify for pay later financing from PayPal. Train now and pay later!
