The end of Summer is upon us and for many that means we’ve already indulged in the last sunshine of the year. Our Summer tan’s are either peeling or just a distant memory and you may now be longing for a bronze glow.
Here at Bloom we regard a tan as highly as spanx, it’s the treatment that can makes us feel thinner and more confident in minutes.
Book A Beautiful Spray Tan
Did you know we offer mobile spray tans as part of our service provision? We thought it would be a great idea to let you know how to fully enhance and prolong your results.
The key to a beautiful and even tan begins with proper preparation.
Our first tip is to exfoliate, exfoliate and further exfoliate. Exfoliating is the perfect pre-tan treatment as it helps to buff away dead skin cells revealing a new, even surface for product to develop upon.
If you’re not a fan of a physical exfoliator or have sensitive skin, try a cream with either bha or aha actives. We love Cerave’s SA smoothing cream a few days prior to a tan.
If you’re planning a wax, we always recommend booking a minimum of 24 hours prior to your spray tan. Waxing or shaving too soon before a tan means your pores will not have the opportunity to close and you may be left with those horrible black tanning spots which do not budge when trapped within the pores. The waxing and shaving process can be very drying on our skin so always remember to moisturise thoroughly afterwards.
If you’ve never had a spray tan before or used a particular product, it may be a good idea to patch test skin in advance to ensure the formula is suitable for your skin. If you would like to patch test for our spray tans in advance let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
For your tanning appointment you will need is your hair tying up and a room that fits our pop up tent. If you’ve also booked a nail treatment we will always do this first as polished nails are a great barrier against unwanted finger nail staining.
After your spray tan consider wearing only loose fitting, dark or old clothing. However, transfer of product can sometimes be unavoidable. In addition to thorough moisturising each day to prolong your golden glow…
We also recommend avoiding long baths with essential oils as they can down the components within spray tanners.
