Spray tan won't come off

I have a customer with severe severe dry skin. I've used several different solutions on her, it takes about a month and a half to fade and when the fading process occurs she looks like a lizard for weeks. She's tried olive oil lemon juice ect. It won't come off! She moisturizers everyday we even tried moisture lock spray to soften skin, any suggestions or answers?

Re: Spray tan won't come off

Your client should prepare/improve the condition of her skin at least 2-3 weeks in advance of the tan. She should exfoliate in the shower ("MD Formulations Face & Body Scrub" is wonderfully gritty, and contains glycolic acid), and follow with a lotion that also contains AHAs or BHAs ("Paula's Choice" makes good ones). She must absolutely avoid using any bar soap, and - instead - use a gentle, rich shower gel ("Aveeno Moisturizing Body Wash" is good). After rinsing off the gel, she should go over her body with a washcloth to remove all residue and provide that last bit of exfoliation. Immediately after showering, she should moisturize with an AHA or BHA lotion (but not if she's just shaved - in that case, a non-acid lotion should be used).

After she's tanned, very light exfoliation in the shower, after rinsing off the shower gel, should help the tan fade more evenly. And - again - she should follow up with a rich moisture lotion. "Topix Replenix" has a nice antioxidant & ceramide-rich formula that sinks in nicely and really improves skin quality.

She may want to use a gradual tanning lotion every 2nd day, to keep a bit of colour and even things out as she fades. "Xen-Tan" or "Jergens Natural Glow" are both good formulas that produce a nice, olive tone.

Hope this helps! :-)

Re: Spray tan won't come off

Norvell has professional sunless products that are made specifically for all these issues. Other professional tanning companies like Sunless Inc. does as well. Buy products that were made specifically for spray tanners not everyday products that weren't designed for spray tanners they lack deep moisturizers that are needed. If all else fails she could use organic coconut oil on her second and third showers after her spray in combination with the other products.

Re: Spray tan won't come off

To get the tan completely off she could try soaking in warm bath w/ baby oil in it for 45 minutes or an hour, then exfoliate with an exfoliating glove & a moisturizing soap. This is just to get the old tan off.
Then follow the moisturizing recommendations the peeps above gave, they are good ones.
She needs to moisturize her skin inside & out it sounds like.

Re: Spray tan won't come off

Thank you for all of the advice. One more question, should people with dry skin as severe as my clients stay away from spray tanning solutions with bronzers in it or does that have anything to do with the fading issues she's having?

Re: Spray tan won't come off

I have my clients who have severe dry skin apply a minimal amount of lotion on at least 2-3 hours before I tan them. Their tans come out awesome and fade well. People with dry skin do not need to stay away from spray tanning , they just need to prep for it well and take care of their tan well. Keeping the skin moisturized is key.

Tonyab, most spray tanning solutions have bronzers. These work as a "coloring guide" for a client's skin when your spraying them to make sure that you are putting on the right amount of tan. A bronzer will also provide that "instant tan" look, but only until your client showers--then it washes off, leaving only the DHA part of the solution .

Because the bronzer does basically nothing beyond the "instant tan feel", and a coloring guide for you, there should not be any oil, alcohols, or anything else that would dry out your client's skin in the Bronzer itself (though the rest of the solution might still have oil/alcohol/etc)

So the Bronzer should not affect your client's skin in any way, but a spray tan solution with bronzer in it may still effect dry skin because of what is in the rest of the solution .

Re: Spray tan won't come off

This can be a big problem with clients who have really dry skin. Like another poster I would say have her moisturise before her tanning session. This is normally a big "no-no" but it's worth a try to see the results. Other than that make sure you are using a solution which has great moisturising properties.

Re: Spray tan won't come off

If a client has dry skin, make sure they shower right before the reservation and apply their normal body lotion (diluted 50/50 with some water). Works great, even with the junk lotions. We prefer they use coconut oil.

As an response to this I would suggest a warning: A spray tan is, well, a spray, and anything that is being put on the skin prior to getting a spray tan is going to effect the quality--so make sure, if you go this route, to warn your client of that possibility. It might not happen, but it's better to range on the safe side.

Clients with exceptionally dry skin need to follow a stricter moisturizing regimen--that they should be following anyways!--this will hopefully help even out a tan (pay special attention to problem spots like: elbows, knuckles, knees, forehead, and between the breasts if applicable).

To deal with an uneven tan: there are moisturizers out there that include small amounts of DHA--these might help if applied to areas that are becoming uneven. I have also heard of microfiber cloths for both exfoliating and tan removal, but I have read mixed reviews on these--they might be at least worth a try.
