A Brief Spray Tanning Introduction

By Veronica Cappelletti

Spray tanning is an effective way of applying fake tan. It is less risky than sun bathing or using artificial sun beds. However like them it is important to use them carefully and to know how to do so in an effective way.

This process differs from artificial sun beds in that it uses liquid spray rather than artificial light. If you are using a booth you should check the kind of product they use before entering. You should avoid applying anything on your skin that you might be allergic to.

A good way of avoiding this is to prepare before any application. When you wash you should exfoliate your skin. Scars and scabs should be covered up. Some medication can react badly to fake tan so you should consult with your doctor before beginning any treatment.

Another effective way is to ensure the application is even. Applying a lotion to the soles of your feet and between toes and fingers will help to achieve this. It is especially important to exfoliate the knees and elbows as these will absorb more fake tan and therefore turn darker quicker than other areas.

A booth costs less than a technician applying it. One advantage of using the services of a technician is that you can check before it is finished. If there are any blotches or inconsistent patches you can get it reapplied before you leave for the best possible look.

In short you can get the most from spray tanning by preparing properly and using the right service for your needs. There are a number of beauty salons and specialist tanning stores that offer this. Look online to find one in your area.
