dry skin

I know the spray doesnt work well with dry skin. You cant use moisturizer before the tan, so then what do you do?

Re: dry skin

You can only work with the skin they brought. For the best possible outcome given the circumstances all you can do is give then a dry washcloth and have them rub it over the dry areas to do a dry exfoliation. Then follow up your spray tan with a moisture spray. I get a lot of men with really dry skin.

Re: dry skin

I would try and "educate" them before they come to make sure they moisturise every day a few days before the spray session. This might lessen the damage. Maybe also spray with a lower % DHA solution as DHA itself is pretty drying.

Re: dry skin

Yes you can use moisturizer , very minimal though. I have a few clients that have really dry skin, my sister included. I tell them to moisturize with a minimal amount of lotion (with no mineral oil in it ofcourse) before their spray tan . Their tans come out awesome. If they don't moisturize then their tans come out weird. If they don't have very dry skin then yes, dont have lotion on.

Re: dry skin

I agree with Paradise. I think a very very light layer on very dry skin helps.

Re: dry skin

We have our clients use SunlessPRO's Pre-Tan Intensifier as an after-shower moisturizer if they're going to come in for a spray tan that day.

Re: dry skin

We tell all our clients with dry skin to take 7 days and really be good about hydrating prior to spray tanning . Drink lots of water and moisturize twice a day with a moisturizer for really dry skin. It takes 7 days for the skin to re hydrate after drying out. A tanning solution with Aloe and Vitamin E is key as well. Not so much that it is sticky, but enough to hydrate. We use Jamaica Me Tan and love it. Play with a few solutions and see how they work. Every brand has key points and we found the one we love and ran with it. We spray up to 100+ clients a week and never have complaints. We keep building our base.
