Having a Perth spray tan anytime soon? Wondered when and what is the most appropriate way to remove your hair? Here are some tips you can do:

Shaving

Ø  Shaving a day before your scheduled tan is the best! Be sure to shave your legs, underarms, and any other areas to be sure that the spray tan will be applied evenly, and the tan won’t be adhering to the hair. Shave after a tan ONLY if there are stubbles coming out, but we recommend not to shave immediately after the tan as it might fade since shaving can strip it away.

Ø  How to Shave properly before Tanning

a.       Use the correct razor – using the right razor will give you less complications. If you have sensitive skin, make sure you use a razor for sensitive skin.

b.       Don’t skip the shaving gel or cream – Shaving gels or creams moisturize the skin and minimize dryness when you shave.

c.       Make Loofah your friend – Don’t skip the exfoliation before shaving. This will make some unwanted hair come out.

d.       Be sure to use a Bump-free lotion – Use a non-alcoholic lotion to avoid the area getting irritated. Alcohol-free lotions also help in getting razor burns which you might get after shaving.

Waxing and Plucking

Ø  If you’re more into waxing or plucking, be sure to have your hair removed 2 – 3 days before your scheduled tan appointment.

Ø  Never have your hair removed after a spray tan as it will strip your tan make it uneven.

Laser Hair Removal

Ø  If you’re more into laser hair removal, make sure to have a patch test first before your tanning to ensure that your skin won’t get irritated. If all is good, you can get your treatment a day before your scheduled tanning appointment.
