I know that the face is the first part to get less tan in a spray tan, however my face is my favorite part to be tan lol so I always avoid wearing makeup/washing it if I can. Anybody have some advice or experience with this that will allow me to keep my tan AND clear skin?

Re: Random Question: SPRAY TAN AND SKIN CARE

So important to keep your face and pores clean when you have a fake tan. I used a gentle cleanser like Origins Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash 5 oz/ 150 mL and just rubbed super lightly with super little product, no exfoliating and dab dry. 



I'd recommend Isle of Paradise Self Tanning Natural Glow Face Drops Mediumto mix with your lotion after an exfoliating shower. It's a good alternative for spray tan and safe for your face. Be careful not to get wet after as it'll run, similar to spray tan. This worked really well for me when I didn't have time for a tan, and I got the lightest kind.


I'd rather my skin be clear than tan, which is why when I "rub" my fake tan off by washing my face, I use some of the Dr. Dennis face tanning pads for that color and glow. Different shades are available of course.
