The “lit from within” glow is not easily achieved during the winter. For some, it means drinking more water or using brightening serums are the only solution. And for those with little patience, a spray tan usually does the trick. Getting bronzed in the dead of winter is a quick and effective fix for when our skin tends to look duller. However, many of you out there still associate spray tans and self-tanners with the color orange, stickiness and strange smells. In an effort to dispel any myths surrounding sunless tanning, here is a breakdown of what to expect before, during and after a spray tanning with us.
- For starters, spray tans are nothing like the tangerine-colored ones you remember from the early ’90s. And they’re not just for people with a light complexion. See, the point of a spray tan is to give you a glow, and not completely alter your skin tone.
- A high-quality spray tan should give you a natural glow, one that doesn’t leave streaks or inconsistencies.
- The final color you achieve after a spray tan should dry fast and immediately elevate your glow in just one application.
- The sign of a good spray tan is that no one should know you have one. To ensure you will be pleased with the final results, have a consultation with a professional and then go for it!
- A seasoned spray tanner will tell you that aside from looking bronzed all year regardless of the season, a spray tan reduces any redness of the skin.
- Think of a spray tan as an invisible protective shield that creates the appearance of warmer skin, even if you are under the weather. Not to mention that a healthy glow creates the appearance of a more contoured, slim figure.
- Spray tans are also much safer than the traditional tanning bed. Indoor tanning raises a person’s risk for skin cancer by 75%.
