Best Soap To Use After A Spray Tan
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:
Spray Tan Safe Body Wash
My favorite sunless 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 spray tan you are stripping off your color. To extend the life of your sunless tan choose products that are sulfate-free:
Best Moisturizer After Spray Tan
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 Body Scrub Before Spray Tan
My favorite exfoliating products are manual scrubs. Body scrubs that have oils and waxes in them coat your skin leaving a barrier to your sunless tan soaking in evenly. We want a clean-rinsing body scrub and it’s always best to exfoliate 24 hours BEFORE your sunless tan is applied.
