The most important question I get and the most critical topic I won’t stop talking about: LOTION! It’s essential to invest in the best lotion to keep your spray tan glowing, long-lasting, and with an even fade. Without lotion, your tan can appear crackled, dry, and might even fade unevenly.
But, not all lotions are created equal, and you shouldn’t just use any ole lotion. When choosing a lotion, here are a few things to look out for:
- Look for All-Natural Ingredients: Natural ingredients are gentle on your skin and won’t interfere with your tan’s longevity.
- Sulfate-Free: Lotion free from sulfates is kinder to your tan and your skin.
- Watch Out for Sodium: If the first few ingredients in the lotion list “sodium,” it’s better to avoid it, as it might not be spray tan-friendly.
Glow Babe Studio is here to provide you with a curated list of recommended lotions to keep your spray tan looking its best. Without further ado, here are my top 5 favorite lotions for your spray tan:
Hempz takes the crown in the world of spray tanning. Not just the Age Defying, although this one is my favorite and is offered at Glow Babe Studio, but all Hempz lotions! These lotions are incredibly hydrating and made with natural ingredients. Plus, they are free from sulfates and harsh chemicals. Hempz is famous among sunless artists for aiding the journey of your spray tan. What’s more, Hempz is so dedicated to quality that they even make their own sunless tanning products. This is how we know it will do an exceptional job when it comes to hydrating your spray tan.
Cetaphil is a trusted name in skincare, and it’s no different when it comes to maintaining your spray tan. Their lotions are gentle and well-suited for keeping your skin hydrated without interfering with your tan.
CeraVe is another fantastic choice for lotion after your spray tan. Their products are formulated with ceramides to help restore your skin’s natural barrier and retain moisture. A hydrated base is the perfect canvas for a long-lasting spray tan.
Lubriderm is a classic choice for lotion, and it’s known for its effectiveness in keeping skin moisturized. It’s a reliable option for those who want to ensure their spray tan looks fantastic for as long as possible.
Aveeno’s lotions are well-regarded for their gentle, skin-soothing properties. They can help maintain your tan’s vibrancy and keep your skin soft and nourished.
