What are the benefits of a spray tan?

A spray tan is a great option for an easy and convenient glow. Airbrush tans yield fast results—you’ll walk out of the salon with your ideal tan after just one session! It also offers a little more flexibility when it comes to choosing a tone. You can work with a professional attendant to determine the best undertone for your skin color or the best way to achieve the look you’ve always wanted.

Spray tans are also better for your skin than other methods because there’s no UV ray exposure and little to no chance that it’ll react with any medications.

What are the benefits of a tanning bed?

The bronze you get from a tanning bed will be a little different than the one you get from a spray tan. The tan you develop during tanning bed sessions will be longer-lasting and deeper than a quick airbrush. It also requires a less extensive preparation routine—all you have to do is put on some indoor tanning lotion before you hop in!

One of the most popular advantages to opting for a tanning bed is that your glow will have a more natural look. The UV rays in a tanning booth activate natural melatonin production in your body, leaving you with a tan that closely resembles one you would have after spending a few hours in the sun.

So, which one is right for me?

Whether a spray tan or full indoor tanning regimen is the best option for you is going to depend on a few different factors. If you’re fair-skinned and easily burned, a spray tan is going to be the safer option. A spray tan will also be more beneficial if you’re short on time or just looking to brighten your skin for a special occasion.

For someone wanting a longer lasting, deeper tan that requires less after-care, you want to opt for a tanning bed. If a natural look is important to you, the slow buildup of indoor tanning will be more effective at getting the glow you want. Because tanning bed results last longer, they also require less frequent trips to the salon. So, if you prefer something with less maintenance, indoor tanning is a better choice.

At Las Vegas Bronzed, we offer quality spray tans and elite tanning beds to meet everybody’s needs and preferences. Contact us to get started on your ideal summer look today!

What to Avoid After an Airbrush Tan

What to Avoid After an Airbrush Tan Believe it or not, the holiday season is getting closer and it’s time to start thinking about how you want to look when they arrive. If you’re hoping to have golden bronzed skin for the holiday season, you might be considering a spray tan.

If you are planning to get an airbrush tan for the holiday season, make sure you avoid doing certain things that can make them fade quickly.

Avoid Shower and Shaving

Obviously you’ll need to shower after getting airbrushed, but spending a lengthy amount of time in water can contribute to fading. Exfoliating and shaving can also result in a faded airbrush tan, because razors and loofahs rub the surface of your skin diminishing the tans. We suggest waiting at least 10 to 12 hours before showering for best results.

Avoid Scented Products

Although you might love using scented products, do your best to avoid them after getting airbrushed. Sweet smelling holiday scented products might be tempting, but to achieve that smell, those products are full of chemicals. Consider using unscented soaps and lotions instead which tend to be more natural and softer on skin overall.

Avoid Excessive Perspiration

We understand that fitness is important, but after getting airbrushed, you’ll want to cut back on working out for at least 12 hours after. Sweating can wear off the product, not to mention, you also have to avoid showering which is hard to do if you’ve been working out.  If abstaining from physical activity is not an option, use a gradual tanner between sessions to extend your tan.

Las Vegas Bronzed Tanning is your home for all things spray tan-related. Las Vegas Bronzed uses airbrush tanning applied by professional spray technicians to give you a deep, natural-looking tan in one visit.
