Sunscreens to Use While Spray Tanning

It is almost summer time, which means you get your lovely spray tan done, you jump into your bathing suit, grab a towel, and head to the beach or swimming pool. Before relaxing in the sun, you need to not forget the most important thing, SUNSCREEN!

As you may already know, not all sunscreens are the same. Many sunscreens contain oils and alcohol that can cause your skin to dry out and ruin your beautiful spray tan. Many clients ask if it is safe to wear sunscreen. We say, YES! Without sunscreen, you will burn through your spray tan, because most spray tans do not provide you with any sun protection. Below are a few of our favorite sunscreens to use while you have a spray tan.

Sun Bum Original Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion

This sunscreen is a perfect blend of moisturizer and sunscreen lotion packed into one bottle. It is highly recommended by the skin cancer foundation and is a best seller on Amazon. This sunscreen is made of all natural ingredients and is Paraben-free, spray tan friendly, hypoallergenic, and even water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. With an SPF rating of 30, this is a perfect lotion for lying out by the pool and soaking up the sun or going for a nice swim. One customer says, “Best sunscreen I’ve ever used! I spray tan and have used other sunscreens, but the other sunscreens dry my skin out or don’t work well with my spray tan. Sun Bum works so well. 10/10 would recommend.” To purchase click here.

Coola Sun Care Mineral Face SPF 30 Sunscreen, Matte Finish

Coola is a premium brand of sunscreen and self-tanning products. This sunscreen is preservative-free, water-free, and water-resistant. This sunscreen is perfect for our spray tan clients, because it fights signs of aging caused by the sun with antioxidant-infused farm-to-face-sourced sunscreen. This sunscreen is also rich in vitamin C, flaxseed, and primrose. This sunscreen will protect you while basking in the sun and won’t ruin your beautiful spray tan. A customer review on this product says, “The texture of this sunscreen is divine, and I have yet to find another sunscreen like it. If you spray tan, you will love this product. It is a true matte finish and primes my face perfectly.” To check it out click here.

CoTZ Sensitive SPF 40 Sunscreen

This sunscreen, like the other two above, is water-resistant, non-greasy, and developed with a mineral formula. We believe these are very important ingredients for successful sunscreens, especially when spray tanning. Moreover, this CoTZ sunscreen looks amazing, and it does not leave a white hue. This sunscreen is great for people with sensitive or easily irritated skin. We love this sunscreen because it is preservative-free, no animal testing was done for this product, and it is reef-friendly, as well. One reviewer said this about this sunscreen: “This is my holy grail product. I spent over a year looking for a physical sunscreen for my dry/sensitive skin that would not leave a white cast. Love, love this product.” Visit here to check it out.

MDSolarSciences Mineral Crème SPF 50

We wanted to save our favorite for last. This sunscreen seems like the best out there for our clients. If you are searching for a sunscreen that looks, smells, and feels amazing this is your product.  This product boasts a lightweight and silky formula that blends seamlessly to blur fine lines and wrinkles. This product is lightweight, mineral formula based, non-comedogenic, water resistant, non-irritating. This sunscreen leaves a matte finish that is perfect to wear under and over makeup if you wish. One customer raves about this sunscreen saying, “This sunscreen saved my spray tan from the brutal southern sun! I will never buy any other sunscreen product but this one, I’m hooked.” To see more of this product and to purchase, click here.
