Spray Tan at Home: The Ultimate Guide for a Flawless Tan

Are you looking for a sun-kissed glow but don't want to spend hours laying under the sun? Do you want to avoid harmful UV rays and achieve a natural-looking tan without leaving your house? Look no further because spray tan at home is the perfect solution for you. In this article, we will guide you through the process of achieving a flawless and long-lasting tan in the comfort of your own home.

What is Spray Tan?

Spray tanning is a cosmetic procedure that involves applying a solution to the skin that creates a temporary tan. The solution contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colorless chemical that reacts with the amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce a golden-brown color. The tan usually lasts for about 7 to 10 days, depending on the quality of the solution and how well you take care of your skin.

Why Spray Tan at Home?

Spray tanning at home has become increasingly popular over the years, and for many reasons. Firstly, it is a convenient and cost-effective alternative to visiting a tanning salon. Secondly, it allows you to customise your tan to your preference and avoid the risk of uneven or orange-looking tans. Thirdly, it is a safer option for your skin as it does not expose you to harmful UV rays that can cause skin damage and increase the risk of skin cancer.

How to Prepare for Spray Tan at Home?

Preparation is key when it comes to achieving a flawless and long-lasting tan. Here are some steps to follow before you start the tanning process:

  1. Exfoliate your skin - This removes dead skin cells and ensures that the tanning solution applies evenly and lasts longer.

  2. Shave or wax - Do this at least 24 hours before tanning to avoid irritation or ingrown hairs.

  3. Moisturise dry areas - Pay attention to areas like elbows, knees, and ankles, as they tend to be drier than other parts of the body and can absorb more tanning solution.

  4. Avoid wearing makeup or deodorant - These products can create a barrier and prevent the tanning solution from penetrating the skin.

  5. Wear loose and dark clothing - This helps to avoid any transfer of the tanning solution onto your clothes and ensures that your tan develops evenly.

How to Apply Spray Tan at Home?

Once you have prepared your skin, it's time to apply the tanning solution. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Choose Mother of Tan Spray Formulation to achieve a flawless tan that is easy to apply and give your great results. 

  2. Read the instructions - Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and ensure that you understand the application process.

  3. Apply the tanning solution - Start from the bottom of your body and work your way up. Use circular motions to apply the solution evenly, and be careful not to miss any areas.

  4. Blend and buff - Use a quality tanning mitt or tanning brush to blend and buff the solution into your skin. This ensures that there are no uneven areas in those hard place around your feet and hands.

  5. Wait and rinse - Wait for the solution to dry completely before getting dressed or rinsing it off. The recommended time varies depending on the Colour you are after.
