Self Tanning Tips for Beginners
Choosing the right skincare for your spray tan is crucial.
Certain ingredients in your skincare routine will remove or cut the longevity or your tan life. Products containing baby oil, mineral oil, AHA, alcohol and acne washes. PH Balanced products to the right amount of skincare are ideal for before and after your sessions.
Do not use Dove soap, Oil of Olay or any deodorant soaps.
Spray Tan does not protect your skin from the suns harmful UVA/UVB rays; always apply sunscreen even on rainy days. We recommend lotions sunscreens over aerosol cans.
Spray Tans are not organic. There is no such thing as a 100% organic spray tan solution on the market. DHA is not an organic ingredient, while its made from sugar from fruits & vegetables and safe for spraying in your skin. Most solutions range from 8-15% of DHA so the rest are organic ingredients. At Pearl Tan Co we are always researching and testing the best products on the market, with safe ingredients and high quality results.
