One of the most effective methods of sunless tanning is spray tanning. Technically, spray tanning is something between self tanning cosmetics and tanning beds. Upon entering a tanning booth, the specialist sprays you with a tanning solution, carefully noting areas that need slimming or trimming or those that need even coverage. Within a few minutes, the process is over and you have just the perfect tan you’ve been craving for all along.
The spray tan solutions contain DHA, a chemical reacting with the epidermis and in turn dyeing it brown, giving you a perfect tan. Basically, it works in the same way as tanning lotions but considered more effective and efficient in every way. Spray tanning, when compared to other methods, requires just one session only and nothing more. Simply put, one visit to the salon is enough to get an even tan and a better result than what most can achieve in the sun or a tanning bed.
Since spray tanning works on the skin’s outer layer, it can last for about 7 days or more. Most spray can disappear in four or five days. If you aim to keep your skin glowing longer, you can book a spray tan every week. What’s more, spray tanning is affordable and cost effective. Depending on your budget, you can find a spray tan solution that best suits your needs. Be careful not to fall for the discount tans, however, many salons who discount their work are not always up to par in terms of a quality result.
Ultimately, there are other ways through which you can extend the lifespan of your tan. Some of the ways are listed below
- Before entering a spray tanning booth, you need to moisturize your skin with a water-based moisturizer. Lotions which contain oil will strip your tan.
- Exfoliate your skin. This will keep your skin clear of those dead cells and give you a fresh even coat of skin.
- Spray tanning is one of the safest methods of getting a radiant glowing skin. Unlike sunbathing which causes premature aging and cancer.
