At Lemon + Honey, we start to get a surge of clients requesting spray tan services around this time of year. Which makes sense – people are starting to get outside more and going on vacation, and they want their skin to look its absolute best!
Maybe you’re on the brink of getting your first spray tan – or perhaps you’ve had several! Regardless of how many spray tans you’ve had, here are some of the most common questions our experts are asked about spray tans:
What should I wear to my spray tan appointment?
We recommend wearing dark, loose-fitting clothing and flip flops to maintain optimal results following your service. During your spray session, you have a couple of options: you can either wear dark underwear or swimsuit or you can choose to be completely nude if you wish to avoid tan lines. It’s totally up to you and what makes you feel most comfortable!
How long will my spray tan last?
This is a great question! The length of time your results last will primarily depend on how dark your spray tan is. If your spray tan is on the lighter side, you can expect results to last roughly 5 days, while darker spray tans can last anywhere from 7 to 10 days.
For best results, be sure to exfoliate and remove any unwanted hair prior to your appointment. Doing so will make sure the spray tan solution adheres smoothly to your skin!
How often should I get a spray tan?
Most people schedule spray tan appointments every 2 weeks. This frequency guarantees your prior spray tan is completely gone and gives you time to exfoliate, shave, and moisturize between your sessions!
Is spray tanning safer than traditional sunbathing or tanning beds?
While sunbathing and indoor tanning beds are still popular, it’s no secret that these methods increase your skin’s exposure to UV (ultraviolet) sunrays and light – which in turn, makes you more susceptible to certain skin cancers.
Spray tanning, on the other hand, uses DHA, or dihydroxyacetone – which isn’t a paint or dye. Rather, it’s causes a chemical reaction on the skin that gives you the tan!
