We were recently asked if you could use our Marula Oil after you receive a spray tan. We tapped our Marula Beauty expert Anna Johnson, Medical Esthetician to Dr. Kaidi and celebrity tan artist for South Seas Skin Care- official spray tan company for Dancing With The Stars.
"Airbrush tanning is a process by which a Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) based solution is airbrushed onto the skin creating a safe, natural, sunless tan lasting 7-10 days. You will see immediate results and the color will continue to darken after the initial application. With most solutions, the deepest tan color is reached within 12-24 hours. A considerable amount of the bronzer added to the solution will come off in the first shower/bath after application. Don’t worry! Although it looks like your tan is washing off, it’s only residual product going down the drain. The color that remains is produced by the DHA reacting with your skin, so you’ll still have an amazing tan. Prior to applying an airbrush tan, exfoliate, shave and avoid using lotion. Wear dark, loose cotton clothing so you don’t rub off the product before it has a chance to work its magic. Place a towel on the seat of your car for the drive home and avoid sweating and showering for at least 6 hours after your tan treatment to prevent poor coloring and unevenness. To extend the life of your tan it is important to keep your skin hydrated. For a boost of antioxidants and hydration, apply Marula Oil to your skin."
