Sunburns and Spray Tanning: The Not-So-Fun Combo

Hello, beautiful souls!

Let's talk about something super important today – sunburns and spray tanning. I know, I know, not the most glamorous topic, but trust me, it’s essential!

So, we all know that sunburns are no fun. They’re painful, uncomfortable, and can make you feel like a lobster on a grill. But did you know that a sunburn is actually a serious burn, just like one you’d get from touching something hot? Yep, it’s that serious! And our skin, bless it, takes weeks or even months to heal properly from a sunburn.

Now, here’s the deal: getting a spray tan over sunburned skin is a big no-no. Why? Because your poor skin is in recovery mode. Spray tanning over a sunburn can lead to some seriously patchy results. Imagine your beautiful tan peeling away in chunks – not a good look! Our skin needs time to recover and regenerate, and adding a spray tan to the mix just complicates things.

Protecting yourself from the sun is crucial. Think hats, long sleeves, and sunscreen. Always. Your skin will thank you, and so will your future spray tan! But, let’s say you’ve had a little too much fun in the sun and ended up with a sunburn. What now?

First and foremost, let your skin heal. Aloe Vera is a lifesaver for soothing sunburned skin, but if your burn is severe, please see your doctor for advice on how to take care of it properly. It’s all about giving your skin the TLC it needs to bounce back.

Once your skin has healed, and only then, should you think about getting a spray tan. You want that beautiful, even glow, not a patchy mess. Remember, patience is key!

To sum it up: protect yourself from the sun, let your skin heal if you do get burned, and then come see me for that gorgeous spray tan. Trust me, you’ll look and feel so much better.

Take care, lovelies! Keep safe, keep glowing, and never forget the sunscreen!

With love from your truly,

Karina, your Personal Tanner
