We’ve all been there, had the perfect glowy Air-Tan…then went home and had a “spray tan accident”. Maybe you’ve spilled a glass of wine down your chest while binging Netflix and letting the tan settle; or maybe you’ve gotten caught in a rainstorm on the way home from your appointment. Learn what you shouldn’t do if something like this has happened to you.
DON’T GET AN AIR-TAN OVER A SUNBURN
Minor redness is okay, but peeling is going to also peel off the top layer of your skin and your tan with it. After peeling you will be left with huge blotches of missing color. It’s not worth it. Trust me when I say it’s better to wait, than to want to blendthings out ASAP with a tan.
DON’T DO DISHES, WASH YOUR HANDS OR DO LAUNDRY
This is a sure way to end up with beautifully tanned arms, and starking white hands. It’s pretty noticeable in cases where we went Malibu bronzed.
(On this same note, watch out for pets. Dogs (and cats) can be tempted by the smell of your Air-Tan. Once you have a dog lovingly licking your leg, you’re going to end up with lighter streaks! So love on those pets cautiously!)
DONT GET CAUGHT IN THE RAIN UNPREPARED
A light drizzle usually buffs out on its own just fine. Those big ole downpour raindrops that run down the body on the other hand, will not. There’s nothing worse than wearing shorts to an appointment and having rain run down the legs. If you ever find yourself caught in a rain storm after an Air-Tan, give us a call. We can help assess the damage, and are happy to fix any unfortunate mishaps.
No sad movies, happy vibes only while that tan sets! You don’t want to be left with tear marks running down our face, neck, and chest. Life happens though, if we laugh so hard we cry… Air-Tan Face Spray or makeup really comes in handy.
DON’T FORGET LONG LOOSE PANTS/SHIRT TO SLEEP IN BEFORE THE FIRST SHOWER
Many of us tend to unknowingly touch the body in our sleep. Trust me, it’s not a good look when we wake up and realize we slept with our hands curled up between our legs. The knuckles can end up funky and discolored, or we can end up with lighter hand marks on the body. Easiest way to avoid any of this is just covering the body for bedtime while the tan develops.
I’ll end this post saying that most mistakes CAN BE FIXED, or at the very least be made almost unnoticeable. Been there, done that, accidents happen! The first step is always calling us at Air-Tan. In the most severe cases, we may simply recommend a shower ASAP and starting fresh. Sometimes all that’s needed is a quick touch up, or maybe talking you through buffing things out at home. We are here for you. We even have a very handy text line that allows us to receive photos so we can get eyes on your situation, even in cases where you just need some reassurance all is well!
