White Spots on Chest

OK so I noticed several white spots today while doing a tan. At the time I figured maybe product residue even though I did a warm cloth wipe and PH Spray. I returned home and the same thing happened during my tan. The spots also appear on my chest but even larger. I'm wondering what's up? Looks like a spray pattern and I know my skin was clean as I had a shower and no perfume or lotion etc. Could it be the PH spray not rubbed in enough creating a barrier?

Or something worse. I think I remember reading somewhere about fungus in equipment. I always clean thoroughly with warm water soap and alcohol but I do let it dry on a dish drying rack with a towel and a sheet of paper towel on top to avoid dust. Plus these TE pro guns are notorious for holding water.

Anyone experienced this weirdness? It does seem like a barrier of some kind. I'll attach a photo but I'm not sure it does it's weirdness justice.

Re: White Spots on Chest

My BAD!!! : (

After stressing over what I could it be I came to the realization it was product residue after all. I read the ingredients in the Vichy One Step Cleanser and figure the culprit was most likely mineral oil.

The client earlier in the day was also just removing her make-up and because it was only a couple on the chest I figure it was a result of splashing when rinsing.

LESSON LEARNED: use extra PH balancer on chest area to remove product residue. The tan looked fine once developed it was just it looked wonky as the guide colour just did not adhere in those spots.

Usually I would use make-up remover wipes. If you've seen my videos on youtube I really dig the Clean & Simple all-purpose wipes from WalMart. They do a great job removing make-up and cleaning solution from nails, cuticles and bottom of feet. Reasonably priced, no parabens, made in the USA and haven't had any issue with residue or client sensitivity.

I feel like Sherlock Holmes. Mystery solved! Phew. : )
Happy Tanning!
