Black Spots

Ever heard of 'Black Spots' when tanning?

There are two types of Black Spots......First type is when the spray tan technician sprays to close to your skin or her gun isn't working properly. To stop this make sure the spray tan gun is cleaned properly and regularly and stand a good distance from the gun, this can be any were from 30 to 60cm away.

The second type is when you have open large pores and the spray tan gets stuck making it look like you have tiny black spots on your skin.Most of the time, the spots can not be seen by other people unless you point them out. There are a few things that you can do to help thou......
  1. Try different brands of spray tans. Ones that are organic can sometimes be a lighter formula. A lighter formula can sit on the skin differently not seeping in to the pores as much.
  2. Make sure you do your pre tan ritual properly! If you have all of that down pat try adding a salon peel or deep pore scrub to your list. Cleaning out the pores can help them close to make them smaller so they don't catch as much of the spray.
  3. Depending on where your black spots are, you can shave lightly after you shower. This just takes a light layer of tan off, hopefully unblocking the pores.
  4. Lastly if all this fails ask your spray tan tech to use a formula that doesn't have a bronzer in it. A spray tan formula that doesn't have a brozer in it can be hard to use because your cant always see were you have and haven't sprayed, so make sure your spray tan tech knows what shes doing, otherwise you'll be left with a white patched.

Happy Tanning!
