12 Dec What to look for in your Spray Tan solution!
Is your Spray tan truly all natural?
So what is really inside your spray tan solution? It is information that is extremely important to know! Most people don’t realize that although your spray tan solution is vegan and organic that does not mean it is always all natural! A lot of spray tan solutions contain alcohol based solutions to make it fast drying and to avoid the cosmetic bronzer staining your sheets. However, those solutions will leave your skin feeling extremely dry which will, in turn, cause your tan to fade out faster and more unevenly.
What is even worse are oil-based solutions! These solutions can truly be a nightmare due to the fact they are so thick on the skin leaving you feeling sticky and clogging your pores. I prefer as a technician to work with water-based solutions hence the exclusivity with Brazil Bronze. Another amazing quality about Brazil Bronze is it is 99% ALL NATURAL – which makes it one of it’s kind on the market. Water-based spray tanning solutions are designed for people with the most sensitive skin. These solutions will NOT clog your pores or leave your skin feeling sticky or tacky which is important. Not everyone has the time to get a spray tan and just hang out at home waiting to shower. We pride ourselves on using a solution that has ZERO chemical scent and does not leave your skin feeling gross. You can honestly get a spray tan with Brazil Bronze and continue your day as normal! An also added bonus about water-based solutions is the speed in which it dries, no more standing for 10 mins in front of fan freezing your butt off!
Another common miss perception about spray tanning that technicians like to use as an “upsell” is the advice of doing two or three coats to increase your percentage of the tan lasting longer and staying darker. Studies have found that this is a terrible and extremely inefficient system because each consecutive coat actually acts as a barrier for the skin for the next coat. In addition, multiple coats of the solution will only increase the length of time you as a client are stuck waiting to dry, which is never fun. This technique also makes the solution stickier, tackier, and more likely to smudge or streak. It is important to be self-aware of this as technicians charge you for that extra coat!
