Introduction to tanning sprays and lotions
Even though there are benefits to using sprays or lotions to get tan, they can sometimes be a great pain. It is usually much safer than tanning in the sun or using a tanning bed because the person will be avoiding UVA and UVB rays, but in some instances, the sprays and lotions can also be harmful.
It is a well known fact that the more you are out tanning, the greater your chances are for developing skin cancer, and having a nice brown color to your skin is not really a good enough reason to risk having this type of cancer, which is among the deadliest forms.
The more times you have had sunburn in your life, the greater your chances are for developing skin cancer as well.
Tanning sprays are a good alternative, however, there are some problems that come along with this tanning solution as well.
Oftentimes they can be very hard to remove when you don’t want to be tan anymore.
However, there are some tried and tested solution for that as well – even for the most stubborn tanning sprays. Solutions
First and foremost, it is of utmost importance to follow the instructions provided with the spray very closely.
If you are having trouble removing the spray, then it is a good idea to try using some baking soda. Take an unopened bow of it and put it close to the shower. After taking the shower and doing everything that comes along with showering – washing, rinsing, shampooing – take the baking soda and rub it into both hands. After doing that scrub the skin with the baking soda. It is best to scrub the whole body two or three times to get the spray out totally.
Another problem a person can have with tanning spray is that it can run. This must be removed as well. But fortunately, this can be done using the same baking soda method.
Also, prevention is best, so it is very important to take all possible precautions before actually applying the spray to the body.
Make sure to use some type of exfoliating product to exfoliate the skin at least three days before applying the spray. Once the skin is prepared in this way, there are much greater chances that the skin will accept the spray better and that there will be no running. There is also a much greater chance that the spray will come out much easier if the skin has been exfoliated properly prior to the application of the spray.
