Good Moisturizers for Spray Tanning

If you arrive to your spray tanning appointment with dry or dehydrated skin, our technician won’t be able to administer a spray tan that will provide you the best possible results. Very dry skin can affect how skin picks up the self-tanner’s color and cause an uneven tan.
We want you to be satisfied and get the most out of your spray tan!
It is equally important after your session with us to moisturize your skin. If you do not use a moisturizer in the days after your spray tan, the results of the tan will quickly diminish.

But moisturizers are not all the same. Ingredients such as mineral oils, fragrances, dyes, alcohol, and essential oils can make your skin dry and feel uncomfortable. Staying away from moisturizers with these ingredients is key to a long-lasting beautiful tan. To combat this dry skin after the spray tan appointment, we have created a list of our favorite moisturizers to use.

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

This moisturizing cream is non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, and oil-free. CeraVe is guaranteed to keep your skin hydrated for 24 hours. CeraVe is rated as the number-1 dermatologist-recommended moisturizer brand whose product contains the ceramides skin needs to restore and maintain its natural protective barrier.
One customer review says, “My face was really dried out after my spray tan and I remembered I had ceraVe moisturizing cream, so I applied it all over my face and fell asleep with it on. The next morning when I woke up, the dryness disappeared. It was great stuff. (Google, 5-star) To view click here.

This moisturizer is also oil-free, hypoallergenic, lightweight, and non-comedogenic. This moisturizer boosts skin tone, and has also been clinically proven to improve tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness, and brown spots. We recommend this moisturizer for those of you who have problems with skin drying out and burning easily after your spray tan.
