To prepare my body for the most flawless tan I start with taking a quick shower the morning of. Make sure to exfoliate your body as well as give a little extra love to the dry spots like ankles and elbows. After exfoliating you want to shave your legs and any hair that you want to rid your body of before you get a tan. If you choose to shave after the tan has already processes you will actually shave off most of your tan!
After my shower I apply a light layer of body lotion just to add a bit of moisture back and make my skin ready to drink up the tanning spray. (This shower was taken at 8AM and my tanning appointment wasn't until 5PM)
The experience of getting a fake tan is actually pretty easy! Once you get to the lovely office of Organic Tan Windsor you discuss what type of tan you are looking to achieve at your appointment. I am pretty fair so doing anything dark would be dangerous on my skin. I decided that I would go with a bit of a glow to my skin meaning that it's not just a subtle tan that maybe people will notice maybe they wont. I wanted something that looked like I went somewhere for maybe a few days and got some life back into my skin!
Once the tan level was established you head into the tanning room where you get to do a bunch of poses to make sure that while she is tanning you you are being covered in all the hard to reach areas. The tanning solution is a bit cold but it didn't seem to bother me at all!
One of the things I really love about Organic Tan is that they know what they are doing and they take really good care of you. They add oil to your nails and moisturizer on your feet, hands and lips so you dont get any discolouration. I felt safe and confident that she wouldn't let anything bad happen with my tan (like my friend said become an oompa loompa!).
After recieving a tan you must wait atleast 12 hours for the tan to process. During this time you must not sweat or try to get any of your skin wet or else it will effect the processing of your tan. Once you shower you will be left with a nice glow of tan to your skin. To keep this tan alive longer it is recommended that you moisturize twice a day and not exfoliate your skin unless you want the tan to come off quicker.
I love getting my organic tan on! I feel that i look healthier and I have some life back into my skin. I would love to get this done monthly or at least before important events because it is such a quick easy application that takes barely any time at all!
Have you ever tried an organic spray tan!? I would love to know your thoughts and experiences!
