As the days get shorter and the temperatures drop, it's easy to bid farewell to your summer glow. But who says you can't enjoy radiant, sun-kissed skin all year round? Enter the world of spray tans, a fantastic way to maintain that golden hue even when the sun is hiding. Sugarmoon, your trusted beauty destination, is here to guide you through the art of spray tanning and share tips on how to keep your summer glow lasting longer than the season itself.

The Art of Spray Tanning:

Spray tanning is a sunless tanning method that involves the application of a specially formulated solution to your skin. This solution contains Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colorless sugar that interacts with the top layer of your skin to create a temporary tan. Unlike sunbathing, spray tanning is quick, safe, and doesn't expose your skin to harmful UV rays.

Here's how you can maintain your summer glow with a spray tan:

  1. Choose a Professional Spray Tan: When it comes to spray tanning, it's crucial to choose a reputable salon like Sugarmoon Salon. Trained professionals can customize the tan to suit your skin tone, ensuring a natural-looking result.

  2. Preparation is Key: Before your spray tan appointment, exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells. This helps the spray tan adhere evenly and last longer. Avoid using moisturizers or oils on the day of your appointment, as they can create a barrier between your skin and the tanning solution.

  3. Professional Application: At Sugarmoon Salon, our experts use high-quality tanning solutions and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure an even and streak-free application. You'll leave with a beautiful, golden tan that looks like you've just returned from a tropical vacation.

  4. Post-Tan Care: After your spray tan, it's essential to follow these tips to maintain your glow:

    • Wait at least 6-8 hours before showering to allow the tan to develop fully.
    • When you do shower, use lukewarm water and avoid using harsh soaps or exfoliating products.
    • Pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it.
    • Apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated, which helps your tan last longer.
  5. Avoid Chlorine and Saltwater: Chlorine and saltwater can fade your tan more quickly. If you're planning a swim, apply a water-resistant sunscreen or a tan-extending product to help protect your tan.

  6. Touch-Up as Needed: Spray tans are temporary and can last around 7-10 days. To maintain your glow, consider touch-up appointments as needed. Sugarmoon Salon offers affordable touch-up options to keep you looking bronzed and beautiful.

  7. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Staying hydrated, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding excessive sweating can also help prolong the life of your spray tan.
