Did you know that it is far better to have your nail polish on before a tanning session? Even if you have acrylic nails or a gel manicure before you start using spray tan on your skin, the spray tan will not affect your nails. The reason for this is because nails and toenails will be cleaned at the end of the spray tan session which prevents your nails from getting stained.
Keep in mind that it will be a better experience for you to get your face or body waxed prior the tanning session. Also refrain from waxing after a spray tan or before your first shower. In addition to this, make sure that threading and waxing procedures of eyebrows and lips should be accomplished before the tanning session too. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong if you want your eyebrows plucked after your tanning session while threading can be done after your first shower after your tanning session.
When exfoliating, make sure to use non-oil based, gritty scrub or a loofah before your tanning session. The last thing that you want is to have uneven patches on your skin due to dead skin residue. Also limit your shaving after your tanning session because shaving is also a form of exfoliation though shaving after the initial shower should not pose a problem.
As a final note with regard to skin and nail care, eyelash extension also does not cause any unpleasant experiences. However, make sure that you apply them before the tanning session or apply them during the same day as the tanning session provided that they are done before the actual session.
When it comes to caring for your tanned skin, the key is to keep it moisturized. And even if you have a darker skin than usual, make sure to use sunblock when going out. Moisturizing lotion with high SPF is a good choice since it gives you sun protection and moisturizing effect at the same time.
