Spray Tan Tips

Spray Tanning Tips | adoubledose.comSome of y’all may have seen we got a spray tan (airbrushed by someone) a couple of weeks ago. We usually use this self-tanner (more about how to use it in this blog post), but we had the opportunity to get sprayed by Airbrush Tanning Dallas, and LOVED the results! She did an amazing job, and made it super easy for us. When we shared that we got a spray tan, a lot of y’all were asking if we could share some tips on getting a spray tan. Honestly, we have only done it a few times, but we can share some of the tips she gave us, as well as some tips we read before we got sprayed! Nobody wants to look like a ghost in the summer, haha.
Spray Tanning Tips | adoubledose.comBefore we get into the spray tan talk, we wanted to share some of these adorable summer pieces that can easily be worn into fall! We know it is only July, but fall will be here before you know it! This knit cardigan is on sale right now (40% off) and so cozy! We love this oatmeal shade because it is a great neutral, and can be worn with everything. We paired it with these super comfy lace up heels (under $90) and this leopard clutch that is only $38! Leopard is one of those prints that goes with everything, even other prints!

Spray Tanning Tips | adoubledose.comHere are some of the tips we learned from our spray-tanning experience:

  • Don’t use any moisturizer, perfume, or deodorant before getting sprayed
  • Exfoliate well before the spray tan
  • Wear dark, loose clothing after getting sprayed
  • Avoid touching yourself until you rinse off
  • Do the spray tan that has the 2-hour option, as opposed to 8 hours. Nobody wants to be all sticky for that long
    • We only had to wait two hours for ours, so we could rinse off right before bed, which was a game changer
  • Use coconut oil or shea butter to moisturize after the next day
  • Use only a clear gel soap to shower with and NO scrubs
  • After rinsing off, gently pat yourself with the towel, don’t rub the towel on your body, as the color could rub off
  • Use baby powder near your chest (where your bra rubs on your skin) and on your feet when working out, so it creates a sweat barrier, and the tan won’t rub off
  • Use our fave self-tanner or Jergens Natural Glow to prolong your tan
