Listen up Buttercup : What To Wear After Your Spray Tan

Updated: May 23, 2022


Hi, guys. So I just wanted to jump on here and say, Hey! I hope everybody is having a good day. I am sipping my go-go juice, My Starbucks. It's only 11 o'clock; I have not started day drinking yet, jk. We're going to save that till 5 pm ;). This blog post, will let you guys know what you should be wearing to your appointment and what you should not be wearing. As a spray tan artist, I sometimes forget that you guys need to be reminded of that.

I mean, it's weird because I sometimes see artists, and they're like, Oh, wear this, and they have on biker shorts. We don't want biker shorts! No, no, no, no. There is nothing tight at all; no leggings, no sneakers or crop tops. I always say, get your man's clothes. If you don't have a man, get your brother's clothes. If you don't have a brother, go To Wal-Mart, Amazon, or Whatever. Buy Two sizes bigger. I always say, wear long sleeve shirt and pants. The baggier, the better. People always are like, Oh, well, you know, shouldn't I go naked? You don't want to go naked, because mistakes like : your dog licking you; or you spill some water on yourself, you fall in the grass, you open the dishwasher and water will spray on you. These are all scenarios that I have heard personally throughout the years.

So that's why I always say a way to prevent these accidents wear long sleeve shirt and pants, and you guys might say, Well, Amber, what about the little, waistband from your pants? You better tuck that shirt in those pants. Okay. I know it is not Cute, honey. You're marinating; beauty is sometimes uncomfortable, okay? I mean, spray tans are not for the basic. Girls do not forget that! Okay, But this is the thing. There's no pain. You're going to feel a little cold due to the solution, but that's it. The big thing is, you need to put on that long sleeve shirt and pants, and tuck in that shirt. You will be all good with the waistband around your waist too, just tuck your shirt in.

So again, you want dark, loose clothing. Even though the spray tan solution does usually come out of everything, you want dark, loose clothing just because you don't want to mess up any of your clothes or sheets. If you're doing an eight-hour solution, you want to put a towel underneath your body when you sleep. I know it's a lot to change your whole sheets, so, get a big old blanket and put it underneath you. Sleeping in a long sleeve shirt and pants is really going to help with the accidents people usually run into.

Clients often ask, "but if I sleep in long sleeve shirt and pants, won't that mess up the tan?" It will not mess up your spray tan; we put finishing powder over your whole body after your spray tan, to create sort of a barrier between your skin and your clothes. Also, shoes, you do not want to wear any sneakers.No socks or anything after your spray tan that is tight, Flip flops only. So, Quick Wrap up. You want something that is very loose, not tight to your body—dark, loose clothing. And since you're wearing a long sleeve shirt, pants and flip-flops you want to crank that A C., you mustn't sweat after your spray tan. Okay! Check Out our spray tan shirts on our online shop.
