Why have a spray tan?

I don’t know about you but I was an absolutely fanatical sun worshipper, not only for the feel of the heat on my skin but also to get a beautifully bronzed body, I just feel so much more confident when I’m brown. The only drawback to my sun obsession is the long term effects of premature ageing and skin cancer which is why I’ve made a few sensible changes to my tanning regime.

Spray tanning is now my go to treatment for whenever I need to get my legs out or am going on holiday. Not only is it safe but it’s more or less instant and, get a good product and therapist, and no one will know it’s not real.

I still love laying in the sun but only for relaxation purposes now and wear a very high factor sun screen, all my tanning is now done out of a bottle and I love it!

Benefits of an LVL lash lift

This treatment gives AMAZING results.

LVL delivers instant results that last up to an incredible maintenance free 8 weeks, longer than eyelash extensions or perms. It enhances the natural lashes making them appear longer, more voluminous, and ultimately more glamorous. LVL is a gentle treatment that lifts from the roots in around 45 minutes and you’ll leave with a wide awake look that needs no mascara, absolutely perfect for holidays to those that exercise regularly!

Why choose an Exposed spray tan?

I have used Exposed spray tan solutions for around three years, from it’s first launch in fact, and it is by far the best solution I have ever used. Exposed is virtually odourless, does not transfer to bedding (unless you have a particularly sweaty night), and has a light guide colour which develops gradually. This means you can go out and about whilst developing and don’t have the ‘covered in mud’ look. The colour is very natural, comes in shades light to extra dark, and has no orange tint.

 

What is an Exposed spray tan?

In my eight years of spray tanning I have used most of the well known brands and a few lesser known ones. Everyone thinks the big names are the best because everyone has heard of them but this is far from the truth. They have large marketing budgets to get their name out there but in my experience the products do not live up to expectations.

What is an LVL lash lift?

Created by Nouveau Lashes, LVL stands for length-volume-lift.

It is a revolutionary natural lash treatment that straightens your eyelashes at the root, creating the effect of longer, lifted lashes. The effect lasts for a maintenance free 6-8 weeks, especially if you use the conditioning serum. The process takes 45-60 minutes and the results are immediate. The lashes are also tinted giving the effect of wearing mascara.

 

When is the best time to get a mobile spray tan?

If you have an event to go to I’d advise getting your spray tan done a couple of days beforehand to allow it to settle nicely into the skin, although having one done the day before or even on the day if it’s an express solution is equally fine.

A spray tan takes 6-10 hours to develop so if you don’t want to sleep with it while it’s developing I’d advise getting it done earlier in the day so you can shower before bed. Going to bed while it’s still developing though isn’t a problem and won’t affect the outcome. Some brands transfer onto sheets but will wash out.

Why people use mobile spray tanning services

Spray tanning in your home may cost a fraction more than going to a salon but it has many advantages.

Not only do you not have to find and pay for parking, but if you’re anything like me, stepping outside the front door with no make up on and wearing your braless ‘comfy’ clothes fills you with horror. This is where mobile spray tanning is worth it’s weight in gold. When the treatment is over you can stick your dressing gown on or whatever you like and just relax knowing that Joe Public will not be catching a glimpse of you until you’ve developed into a gorgeous bronzed beauty!

Spray tanning, a great gift for Easter or Mother’s Day

With both Easter and Mother’s Day approaching why not buy your loved ones a spray tan? Not only will it not make them gain weight and break out in spots but it’s possibly something they wouldn’t think of buying themselves. Book one as a surprise or buy a gift voucher and help them feel fabulous!

Introduction to spray tanning

With the risks of tanning in the sun and on sunbeds being apparent, spray tanning is a safe and very effective way of getting a natural looking tan.

The key ingredient in spray tan solutions is dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, which derives from sugar beet. Solutions come in various shades from light to very dark and once applied to the skin, develop over a 6-10 hour period. They don’t protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays so sun cream should still always be applied.

To get the best out of the treatment it is advisable to do some research and good skin preparation beforehand. Check the therapist’s credentials, ask how long they’ve been doing spray tanning and don’t be afraid to ask if they are qualified and insured (stay well clear if not). A professional will also tell you how to prepare for the spray tan and how to maintain it afterwards.

If you find the right professional your tan will look natural and totally amazing, if you don’t then you could end up orange, blotchy and very fake looking. BEWARE – from talking to my customers I’ve concluded that there are plenty of bad spray tan therapists out there (quite worrying really).

Benefits of spray tanning in winter

Most winter days are bleak and miserable so getting a spray tan is the perfect way to feed your need for sun-kissed skin. Forget dark tans and opt for a healthy golden glow.

Your skin can suffer in the harsh winter elements but having spray tans throughout helps to motivate you to keep your skin healthy as you need to exfoliate away any dead skin cells before each treatment and moisturise throughout.

Getting a spray tan during the winter not only makes you look great but makes you feel great too. Why not love the way you look all year round?
