Pro Sunless Advice

Can I workout with a spray tan?

New Year, New Resolutions! As we all know, a very popular New Years’ resolution is incorporating more exercise into your daily routine. But did you know that tight gym clothes and sweating can lead to excess rubbing, which can result in unwanted patchiness and premature fade with spray tans? We understand that exercise is an excellent regime to add to your schedule, and we want to make sure that you and your clients are still looking bronzed and beautiful while achieving fitness goals!

Here are a few tips and tricks, from beginning to end, to help you and your clients maintain a healthy lifestyle and glow!

H Y D R A T I O N

The skin is the largest organ of the body. Without proper hydration, the skin can turn dry, tight, and flaky – aka the worst canvas for a spray tan! Ensure your clients drink plenty of water and encourage them to drink more during the winter months when skin tends to be drier than usual.

P R E P E R A T I O N

Before any spray tan appointment, emphasize the importance to your client of spraying a “clean slate.” Remind your clients to shave and exfoliate off all pre-existing spray tan solution 18-24 hours before their appointment. Remind them that no moisturizer should be applied on the day of the appointment.

S H O W E R I N G

Advise your clients to avoid abrasive scrubs or loofahs and overly hot water for their daily showers. To prevent any further stripping of their spray tan, ensure they are using a spray tan safe body wash like our Sjolie Body Wash that will replenish hydration back onto the skin while gently removing dirt and impurities. When drying off, your client should use their towel to “pat” dry and not aggressively rub and further hydrate their skin with a quality moisturizer.
