Sun Damage and Spray Tans
We all love the feeling of the spring/summer sunshine on our skin. Whether you’re lounging by the pool, on a boat ride with friends or playing an outdoor sport, there’s nothing like it… but did you know that our skin is very easily damaged by the sunshine we love so dearly? Take a trip to the beach, Florida or the islands and your susceptibility grows even more.
Let’s talk about your skin and important springtime and summertime events: proms, weddings, engagement parties and graduations. If your skin has been damaged (even the slightest bit pink) in the weeks leading up to your big event, simply let us know a few days before your visit and we’ll devise the perfect plan to get your skin spray-tan ready. If the underlying skin is unhealthy, the damage can cause the tan to incorrectly adhere to your skin and cause peeling, the chest area being especially vulnerable.
Even the slightest sun damage can cause your spray tan to peel (before exfoliation).
Here are three pro tips to ensure you look your most beautiful for your upcoming event:
- Use a high SPF sunscreen (especially on your chest, shoulders and face) at all times the month prior to the event.
- Evaluate your skin a week before your spray tan. This is important at every age; teenage skin is just as likely to be damaged as mature skin.
- If you remember any pinkness or tightness at any time in the month prior, contact GorgeousGLO a week before your spray tan. We have fast and easy pH balancing and skin regenerating treatments which will quickly heal vulnerable skin. This will allow for your beautiful skin to shine through at any upcoming special event.
