Sun Screens Safe for Spray Tanning

Of course, you don’t want to get sunburned. Sunscreen should be part of your daily routine when taking care of your skin, even if you do not plan on going to layout. When it comes getting color spray tanning is a safer alternative option. sunscreenBe aware though that the color on your skin does NOT protect you from the sun. The LAST thing you want is a BURN under your Spray Tan! You want to make sure that you wear an SPF at all times to protect your skin and your new spray tan. Sometimes it can be VERY hard to tell that you are burning when you are rocking your spray. Since your skin is darker, it is not as easy to see so just be sure to wear the appropriate kind of SPF at ALL times.

Now like all other products that you use while wearing your spray tan the sunscreen can NOT contain alcohol or mineral oil in the ACTIVE ingredients, and preferably not highly concentrated in the Inactive Ingredients (in the first 5 listed). I have done extensive research to find which ones work the best.
