There's something magical about stepping into the world of sun-kissed radiance, and with the VersaSpa Pro spray tan experience at your fingertips, that enchantment is within reach. To ensure you walk out with a luminous and flawless tan, it all begins with the right preparation. Let's dive into this ultimate guide, unveiling the steps you need to take for a sunless tan that truly shines.
Step 1: Exfoliation is Key
Achieving that radiant and even spray tan starts with the right preparation, and proper exfoliation plays a crucial role. Exfoliating your skin 24 hours before your spray tan appointment is a key step to ensure a flawless and long-lasting tan. Opt for a gentle exfoliating scrub or mitt that suits your skin type. Look for products that contain natural exfoliants like sugar, salt, or gentle microbeads and avoid exfoliators with oils or heavy moisturizing agents that could leave a residue on your skin. Using gentle circular motions, massage the exfoliator into your skin, helping to remove dead cells and create a smooth surface for tanning. Focus on areas with rough skin, like elbows, knees, ankles, and heels. After exfoliating, rinse your body thoroughly with lukewarm water. Ensure that all traces of the exfoliating product are completely removed from your skin, as leaving any residue behind could interfere with the even absorption of the tanning solution.
Avoid Residue-Causing Products: It's essential to use an exfoliator that won't leave any residue on your skin. Products with heavy oils, creams, or moisturizers can create a barrier between your skin and the tanning solution, leading to uneven or patchy coloration.
Why Exfoliate 24 Hours Before? Exfoliating a day before your spray tan appointment allows your skin to recover from the exfoliation process and ensures that the tanning solution adheres evenly to your skin's surface. This optimal timing ensures that your spray tan develops beautifully and lasts longer.
Step 2: Hair Removal
If you need to remove hair, make sure to do so at least 24 hours before your spray tan session. Waxing, shaving, or any hair removal process should be completed well in advance to give your skin enough time to recover and reduces the risk of uneven tanning caused by freshly opened pores.
Step 3: Cleanse and Go Bare
On the day of your spray tan appointment, take a refreshing shower using an oil-free, non-moisturizing body wash. It's crucial to arrive with clean, makeup-free skin. Avoid applying any lotions, oils, perfumes, or deodorants on the day of your spray tan appointment. This clean slate ensures optimal tan adherence and prevents any barriers that could inhibit the solution from working its magic.
Step 4: Dress for Success
Opt for loose, dark-coloured clothing for your spray tan session. Tight or light-coloured clothes can potentially rub off the tanning solution, leading to uneven results.
With your preparation complete, you're ready to step into the VersaSpa Pro sunless tanning booth and enjoy a flawless, even, and beautifully bronzed result. Get ready to glow and enjoy your spray tanning journey like a pro!
