Are you afraid and nervous about getting a tan because of all of the tales and myths associated with tans? Orange face, two toned colour and streaky body?
Well We’re here to set you straight and tell you the truth about Spray Tanning!
Myth #1 You Will Be Orange
This is one of the main reasons why so many people are put off by receiving a spray tan, the fear of looking unnatural, orange and being called an Oompa Loompa!
Your tan will look orange if you do not use the tan correctly and if you do not take the right steps to prepare for the tan. If your skin develops an orange hue, it is not because of the tanning solution it is because of the applier.
You do however need to make sure that you choose the right shade of tan for your skin type. PureTAN’s Spray Tanning Solutions come in a medium bronze shade and a dark bronze shade allowing different skin types to get the right bronze glow.
Myth #2 Spray Tans are Bad For You.
Spray Tans aren’t harmful to you or your body. There is no more chemical residue in Spray Tan products that aren’t in other tanning products; Spray Tans would only be dangerous if you swallow a large amount of tanning spray mist – To avoid this, close your eyes and mouth and cover your nose.
Myth #3 The Tan Is Difficult To Take Off
It is a common perception that Spray Tans can be difficult to take off. If you are using the right tools, your tan can easily be removed. Applying moisturiser every day will help you when the time comes to remove your tan, try PureTan’s Coconut Crème Body Scrub it has a moisturising function as well as an exfoliant. A removal mitt is also a quick and easy solution to remove all tan from your body, PureTAN’s Pro Self-Tan Removal Mitt will help your tan come off with hot water and a scrub in one shower.
Myth #4 Spray Tans Don’t Last
I’m sure many of you might think that Spray Tans are a waste of money because you have heard that they ‘don’t last long.’ The longevity of your tan is dependent on your skin care. Proper exfoliation before your tan will allow the tan formulation to stick to your skin cells. Regular use of moisturizer after your tan can expand the life of your tan too – try using PureTan’s Coconut Body Crème to moisturise and hydrate the skin.
Of course, you can expand your tan for even longer with gradual Tan lotion. PureTan’s Gradual Tan is the perfect product to apply on your skin to keep a nice subtle glow of your existing Spray Tan, with it’s moisturising function it will double your tans lifespan.
Myth #5 Moisturise Before You Tan
Whatever you do, do not moisturise before you receive your spray tan. The moisturiser acts as a barrier between your skin and the tanning formula that will prevent the tan from sticking to your skin cells. All you need to do before your tan is exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!
