Spray Tan Friendly Beauty Products To Wash With

Sunless Tan Safe Bar Soap

When choosing a bar soap I look for gentle sensitive skin bar soap options.  Think less is more here. We don’t want harsh drying soap full of fragrances and deodorants all over your pretty tan so choose options like those below:

Shea Moisture Bar Soap

Aveeno Moisturizing Bar

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

Sunless Tan Safe Body Wash

My favorite spray tan friendly body washes are sulfate-free.  Sulfates are actually harsh detergents used in liquid soaps to make the bubbles.  When you use these products on your sunless tan you are stripping off your color. To extend the life of your sunless tan choose products that are sulfate-free:

Love Beauty And Planet Sulfate Free Body Wash Safe For Spray Tan

Love Beauty and Planet Majestic Moisture Body Wash

Puracy Sulfate Free Body Wash Safe For Spray Tanning

Puracy Natural Body Wash, Sulfate-Free Bath and Shower Gel

CeraVe Sulfate Free Body Wash Safe For Spray Tans

CeraVe Body Wash for Dry Skin

Spray Tan Friendly Moisturizers

Sunless Tan Safe Lotion

What lotion SHOULD you use with your airbrush tan? I like lotions that are unscented and formulated for sensitive skin.  Again less is more in the lotion department and the more natural the better.  Think mineral oil-free, fragrance-free, chemical-free. My go-to is pure coconut oil.

Best Pre Tan Spray Tan Exfoliator

My favorite exfoliating products are manual exfoliators. Exfoliating scrubs in tubes and jars have oils and waxes in them that coat your skin leaving a barrier to your tan soaking in evenly.  My favorite is the exfoliating towel along with the Shea Moisture shower gel.
