Top 35 spray tanning tips

1. Avoid using deodorant before your spray tan appointment as it will provide a barrier to the spray tan's absorption.

2. Try not to apply moisturizer prior to having a spray tan as it will interrupt the absorption of the spray tan.

3. Where possible, always shave or wax at least 24 hours prior to a spray tan appointment, as hair removal after a spray tan will remove the tan.

4. Try not to get wet for 1–2 hours after a spray tan. So if it is raining the day of your appointment, make sure you bring a large enough umbrella to cover you.

5. Where possible, try to wear dark, loose clothing to and from a spray tan appointment to avoid staining on lighter-colored clothes.

6. Try to avoid activities that will cause excessive perspiring for 12 hours after a spray tan, even if you are able to wash your tan off after a couple of hours.

7. Try to avoid activities that naturally exfoliate the skin — such as baths and chlorinated pool swimming — for at least 12 hours after your spray tan.

8. If you are going on holidays and will be swimming in a chlorinated pool, we suggest using a tan extender to prolong your tan.

9. Your tan professional will tell you when you can shower depending on the level of color depth and your skin requirements, however, when showering, please avoid using soap and shower only with warm (not hot) water to wash off the excess tan color.

10. Keep your skin as moisturized as possible after your spray tan, this will increase the longevity of the tan and help you to avoid the tan wearing off in patches due to dry skin.

11. Daily use of a tan extender will extend the longevity of your tan.

12. Exfoliate from head to toe preferably the day prior to a spray tan, paying particular attention to areas such as your knees, elbows and ankles.

13. Moisturize after exfoliation the day prior to a spray tan to prepare your skin for your spray tan.

14. Where possible, remove all jewelry prior to a spray tan and leave them off for the duration advised by your tanning professional.

15. Where possible, try to wear thongs home from your spray tan appointment to avoid boots /socks/stockings which may rub off the tan solution.

16. Wear a g-string that you don't mind getting stained. Your tanning professional will offer you the use of disposable G-strings if you are concerned about staining your underwear.

17. If you tint your eyebrows, where possible please tint the day before or the day after your spray tan to avoid the tint interfering with your spray tan.

18. Avoid spraying perfume or applying moisturizer to your face or body until after you have washed the spray tan bronzer off.

19. Where possible, try to avoid excessive hand washing prior to washing the spray tan bronzer off. Baby wipes or Wet Ones are a good solution to keep your hands clean.

20. When showering off your spray tan, you may notice the water coloring, please don't panic, this color is just the bronzer washing off your body after your spray tan.

21. After a shower, try to gently pat your skin dry and avoid vigorous rubbing when towel drying.

22. After showering off the spray tan, it may seem that the color has disappeared, please don't panic, the color will continue to develop and process over a period of 12 hours.

23. Please remember that your spray tan does not contain SPF and you will need to use a product with SPF on a daily basis to avoid sunburn and skin damage.

24. For best results, after your tan try to use shower gels rather than harsh soap bars. Avoid using scrubs for at least 7-10 days.

25. If you are having a spray tan for a special occasion, it is best to be sprayed one to two days before the event to ensure you're happy with your color and to get "used" to your new color.

26. If you're coming to an appointment after work, bring along some baby wipes or wet towelettes to remove deodorant or moisturizers before your spray tan.

27. When your tan is ready to be removed, the best form of removal is simple — a nice shower and good exfoliation mitts. Remember to moisturize after you've removed the tan though.

28. If you're planning your spray tan for an event and having a pedicure and/or manicure as well, we suggest having your manicure/pedicure before you have your spray tan.

29. Your face will always be the first area to fade, simply because you wash it more frequently and use of makeup.

30. To prolong your spray tan, try not to use band-aids, pore-strips or face masks, as they may remove tan as you rip or wash them off.

31. If you're going on a holiday to a tropical destination, remember that bug spray, when sprayed directly onto the skin, can remove or fade the tan. Consider spraying your clothing or a "cloud" of spray that you can walk through instead of applying it directly to the skin.

32. If you are having a spray tan for an occasion, discuss your tan color options with your spray tan professional and consider your foundation color when choosing your color.

33. Consult with your spray tan professional and inform them of any dry skin areas, broken or abraded skin, wounds and allergies.

34. If and where possible, consider making your spray tan appointment for a time that allows you to shower before your appointment if you're coming after work.

35. Plan your exercise routine around your spray tan appointment to either exercise and shower before your appointment or wait until your tan has finished processing before exercising.

10 Healing Benefits of the Sun
by Marcus Julian Felicetti

Atapa Snana is the yogic phrase for the healing science of sun bathing. We live in a modern world that is bombarded with paranoid messages about how dangerous the sun is. We should remember that the ancient yogis and many other cultures knew how to use the sun to heal all kinds of illnesses, and bring about radiant health.

In the West we also have a history of using sunlight therapy that dates back to the ancient Greeks. It was called heliosis. Today, the name for sunlight therapy is heliotherapy.

We evolved as a human race for millions of years under the warmth and love of the sun. Perhaps drenching ourselves in poisonous sunblock from head to toe is not the answer.
 
There are many worthwhile alternatives to sunblock. To read about them click here 

Sunblock has many draw backs. Most brands are laden with toxic chemicals such as:
Oxybenzone, which is linked to hormone disruption and cell damage that may lead to skin cancer.
Retinyl palmitate, which has now been proven to be a carcinogen.
Octyl-methoxycinnamate causes oxidation damage of the skin, which ages your face.
Butyl-Methdiebenzoylmethane, which releases free radicals into the body.
Benzophenone 2 (BP2), decreases the function of the thyroid, in a population that is already seriously suffering from hypothyroidism (under active).
Furthermore, sunblock stops the sun's ultra violet rays from creating Vitamin D in the body, which is essential for many functions such as:
bone health
anti-cancer
supports the immune system
protects against dementia and brain aging
good for loosing excess fat
essential for decreasing symptoms of asthma
strengthens teeth
We are making a whole generation Vitamin D deficient with fear of the sun.

Ultra Violet light is just one frequency of light; there are eight others - infrared, and the seven spectrums of visible light. Each one has its own unique healing power!

Here are 10 benefits of getting a moderate amount of sun exposure:

1. Sunlight and whole foods send breast cancer into remission. The American physician Dr. Zane Kime used sunbathing and nutrition to cure his patients. Even in terminal cases, Dr. Kime was able to completely reverse the metastasized cancer.

2. The sun's light kills bad bacteria. The German solders after WWI knew of the discoveries that had been made in 1903 by the Nobel Prize winner, Niels Finsen. They used sunlight to disinfect and heal wounds.

3. Sunlight has a beneficial effect on skin disorders, such as psoriasis, acne, eczema and fungal infections of the skin.

4. Sunlight lowers cholesterol. The sun converts high cholesterol in the blood into steroid hormones and the sex hormones we need for reproduction. In the absence of sunlight, the opposite happens; substances convert to cholesterol.

5. The sun's rays lower blood pressure. Even a single exposure significantly lowers blood pressure in individuals with high blood pressure. On the other hand, pharmaceutical drugs such as Statins have side effects, such as robbing the body of Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is essential for cellular and heart energy.

6. Sunlight penetrates deep into the skin to cleanse the blood and blood vessels. Medical literature published in Europe showed that people with atherosclerosis (hardened arteries) improved with sun exposure.

7. Sunlight increases oxygen content in human blood. And, it also enhances the body's capacity to deliver oxygen to the tissues; very similar to the effects of exercise. The sun has a great effect on stamina, fitness and muscular development.

8. Sunlight builds the immune system. The white blood cells, which increase with sun exposure, are called lymphocytes, and these play a major role in defending the body against infections.

9. Regular sunlight exposure increases the growth and height of children, especially babies. Many cultures throughout history have recognized this fact. Studies have shown the amount of sun exposure in the first few months has an effect on how tall the person grows.

10. Sunlight can cure depression. The noon sunshine can deliver 100,000 lux. When we sit in offices for the best part of the day, out of the sun, under neon and artificial lights (150-600 lux), we are depriving ourselves of the illumination of nature. Sunlight deprivation can cause a condition called seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a form of depression. It is more common in winter months, but also common in people who work long hours in office buildings.
