How to Use Ginger & Me Body Butter to Protect your Spray Tan.

Maintaining a flawless spray tan requires careful skin care, and our Ginger and Me Body Butter can be a beneficial part of your routine without lifting your spray tan prematurely. Here’s how you can effectively use the body butter to keep your skin hydrated and your tan intact:

Benefits of Ginger and Me Body Butter for Spray Tanning

Hydration Without Compromise

One of the key factors in maintaining a spray tan is keeping your skin well-hydrated. Dry skin can cause your tan to fade unevenly and prematurely. Ginger and Me Body Butter provides deep hydration, ensuring your skin remains soft and smooth, which helps your tan last longer.

Step-by-Step Application Guide

Use Daily for Best Results

To integrate Ginger and Me Body Butter into your post-spray tan care routine, follow these steps:

  1. Wait After Tanning:

  • After getting a spray tan, wait the recommended time (usually 8-12 hours) before applying any moisturizers. This allows the tan to fully develop and set. Take your shower with luke warm and rinse off until you see the water run clear, now your skin is ready for your G&M Body Butter.

  1. Daily Moisturization:

  • Apply the Body Butter daily to keep your skin hydrated. Consistent hydration is essential for maintaining the evenness and longevity of your spray tan.

  1. Post Shower or Bath:

  • For optimal results, use the body butter immediately after a shower or bath. Pat your skin dry with a towel, leaving it slightly damp. This helps the body butter absorb better, locking in moisture without stripping your tan.

  1. Gentle Application:

  • Squeze a generous amount of body butter and warm it between your palms. Gently massage it into your skin using circular motions, focusing on dry areas such as elbows, knees, and heels. Avoid over-rubbing, as this can potentially disrupt the tan.

  1. Layer with Body Oil:

  • For an extra hydration boost, apply a thin layer of body oil first, followed by the body butter. This combination enhances moisture retention, further protecting your tan.

Additional Tips for Spray Tan Maintenance

  • Avoid Hot Water: Use lukewarm water when showering or bathing, as hot water can dry out your skin and cause your tan to fade faster.

  • Pat Dry: After showering, pat your skin dry with a towel instead of rubbing. Rubbing can exfoliate your skin and cause the tan to fade unevenly.

  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out. Well-hydrated skin supports the longevity of your tan.

  • Use Gentle Products: Avoid using exfoliating products or harsh soaps on your tanned skin. Gentle, moisturizing cleansers are best to maintain your tan.

  • Wear Loose Clothing: After applying body butter, wear loose-fitting clothing to avoid friction that can rub off your tan.
