Proper spray tan prep is critical to give you that sun-kissed glow that brings to mind the cherished memory of when you came back from a week-long vacation at your favorite beach resort. An investment of just a few minutes before and after your salon visit or before the application of your favorite spray helps preserve that radiance.

Prepping for your spray tan requires a head to toe scrub, maintaining your tan requires an oil free lotion. Here are some great spray tan tips and need-to-knows.

Spray Tan Prep Tip: Prime Your Body Before Your Spray Tan

Getting an even, natural-looking spray tan is a cinch when you take one prerequisite step. After all, you want to maximize your salon outlay, and these spray tan prep tips will be well worth your time.

Take a shower and give your body a thorough exfoliation with a washcloth and a product specifically made for this purpose. This helps remove dead skin cells and lets your body start off with a smooth canvas.

One product that excels at its job is Belli Fresh Start Pre-Treatment Scrub. With peppermint essential oil, green tea and ginseng, your skin is pampered while you gently scrub off dryness to reveal a clean slate, thus allowing your spray tan to penetrate uniformly.

For your face, you may want to use REN Skincare Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser. This dual-purpose wonder tool is both a facial mask and exfoliator. This is important for spray tan prep as it uses beads to slough off dead cells while firming and plumping the skin, plus it:

Once you have finished your exfoliation process, your skin should be rid of all of the excess, uneven dryness. This is one of the most important spray tan prep tips. Now, you are ready for your spray tan.

Spray Tan Prep Tip: Preserve Your Tan

The best post-salon way to keep your tan lasting as long as possible is by using an oil-free lotion on your body to hydrate your skin and keep those cells plump. Remember, hydration helps you hold on to your spray tan.

It is super important to keep your face moisturized so the tan does not fade unevenly. Erno Laszlo Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15 with chamomile, aloe and green tea is key to getting that luminosity to last. And, each time you step outside, it protects your skin from the sun’s damaging rays.
