5 Tips for a Perfect Spray Tan for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is a special occasion and you want to look your best. One way to enhance your appearance is with a spray tan but getting a spray tan can be a bit tricky and a bit intimidating, especially if you have never had one before.

Here are 5 tips to help you get the perfect spray tan for Valentine's Day:

1. Exfoliate

Before getting a spray tan, make sure to exfoliate your skin. This will help to remove any dead skin cells, ensuring that your spray tan will look smooth and even. This should be done the evening before your tan - not the day of.

2. Shave

Make sure to shave the day before your spray tan. This will help to prevent any streaks or unevenness. Planning a wax? 2+ days prior to your tan is best.

3. Wear Loose Clothing

After your spray tan, make sure to wear loose clothing that won't rub against your skin. Tight clothing can cause streaks or unevenness - we’re looking at you, yoga pants!

4. Wait to Shower

Wait at least 8-12 hours after your spray tan before taking a shower. This will give the tan time to set and develop. For the best results, sleep in it and rinse in the morning.

5. Moisturize

To keep your spray tan looking fresh and glowing, make sure to moisturize daily. This will help to extend the life of your spray tan and keep your skin hydrated.

By following these tips (and our Prep & Care guide), you'll be on your way to a perfect spray tan for Valentine's Day. So go ahead, get a spray tan and feel confident, beautiful, and ready to celebrate with your loved one (or your dog and bottle a wine - we don’t judge). Xo.
