If you want to maintain the perfect sun-kissed glow of summer during the dog days ahead, you need to look after your skin in order to avoid the zebra-like effect that can happen with a Boise spray tan. Naturally your skin sheds during a 5-10 day period. Simply put, no Boise spray tan will last longer than ten days. Keep in mind that during the summertime, your skin will shed faster than normal because you’re sweating, and you’re in and out of the swimming pool. The key here is to exfoliate every couple of days.
What areas should you focus on exfoliating?
The top areas of a Boise spray tan that buildup will fade first, like your neck, the crease of your arm, your underarms, and around your bra area (especially if you wear a tight bra or you sweat a lot at the gym). So its important to exfoliate every couple of days with something gentle, and moisturizing to your skin with the correct product. *Different moisturizing products can actually deteriorate the life of your tan.
What’s a good moisturizing product to extend your tan?
