I’m Pregnant! Can I still spray tan?

Can-You-Spray-Tan-While-Pregnant-

It’s starting to get colder outside, and your baby bump isn’t likely going to be seeing much sun (and even if it was you should be wearing SPF.) So the big question is can you spray tan while pregnant? This is a question often asked, and it is very important to have a thorough understanding of precautionary measures, and possible contraindications for the safety of the expecting mother. With proper approval, expecting mothers should have no problem spray tanning.

A doctor knows best:  ALWAYS consult their doctor prior to scheduling their spray tan. Technicians can supply you with an ingredient list of the product which will be utilized in the service, this way the doctor can fully understand the product being applied.

 

Take into consideration, pregnancy can cause many hormonal imbalances which may affect the spray tan. Be sure you are aware this could cause spray tan unevenness, light development, or no development. It is best to avoid rapid solutions while pregnant because of this reason, as the client may not see optimal results. To avoid, a trial spray may be beneficial especially for events.

Follow safety regulations

FDA currently approves and regulates DHA for external use only and does not approve for internal consumption. To comply with FDA regulations, Brushed Artistry offers mucus membrane protection in the form of nose filters, eye protection, disposable panties and bras, and an extraction system.

 

Are you breastfeeding? DHA and cosmetic bronzer is transferable during development.  Avoid breastfeeding during the development period. Ideally, it is best to wear a bra or bikini top during the sunless service, this way the nipple is not exposed allowing for the infant to ingest.

The PERFECT things to do before you spray tan!

Everyone has the questions. What do I do before? What should I avoid doing before? I want to answer all of those questions and MORE, and provide you with all of the recourses needed for a PERFECT tan!

Many clients first questions involve waxing, and shaving. What in the heck do I do with all this hair? Personally, I will ALWAYS choose to wax over shaving, because when waxing you are starting with an extremely clean canvas. If you choose to wax be sure to do so at least 48 hours before your appointment to give your pores enough time to close. ( This includes brow waxing!)

For all of your waxing, and brow needs Brows by Wink is INCREDIBLE, and conveniently located next to our Windermere Studio.

Next Lashes! Always get your spray BEFORE your lash extension appointment, if you get it after that it has the possibility of causing the glue to break down, resulting in a loss of lash extensions that your lash artist worked so hard to put on. If living locally in the Orlando area we Recommend to use Bella Lash Lounge. Bella Lash Lounge is also located conveniently next to our Windermere Studio.

To book call 407-909-0775 or visit www.bellalashlounge.com.

Be sure to schedule all nail appointments, pedicures, and massages BEFORE your spray.

Exfoliate your body using our amazing exfoliating mitt by Dermasuri 24 hours before your Spray Tan, if you skipped the wax this is when you should also shave.

Immediately before getting sprayed, you will want to make sure your skin is clean of all oils, lotions, and deodorant.

Now you are ready for your Brushed Artistry Spray Tan!

New Year, New Tan Routine

spray-tan-vs-sun-tan-is-tanning-safe-at-all

I feel like this is the perfect time to talk about the ever so dangerous topic of Skin Cancer. An estimated 9,940 people died of melanoma in 2015. That is a pretty big number. As we know many of these cases could not have been avoided, due to lack of knowledge and studies about the subject. Although there could have been a few in there that could have been avoided, we will never know as it is just a statistic. Science has proven that overexposure to UV rays produces skin cancer in your cells. This does not mean you have to hide under an umbrella in a hazmat suit walking around all day outside. All this means is that you should be aware of the weather, and the activities that you are participating in. I ALWAYS wear sunscreen on my face. Every day, because this woman does NOT want wrinkles. That’s the other terrible thing about baking in the sun… the wrinkles.

Another important thing that EVERYONE needs to do, is to be checked regularly by a dermatologist. If you catch the precancerous cells early it will be much easier to treat. So go get tested!

Always remember though, just because you can’t bake in the sun does NOT mean you cannot be tan. I am here for all of your tanning needs, it requires no sweating, no sunburns, and no skin cancer. The answer is Spray Tanning, and I come right to you. The color always looks natural and fades evenly as a normal man would. Call me anytime if you are in Orlando for an Appointment at 321-276-0863, or e-mail me at info@brushedartistry.com if you are interested in purchasing a tan can (a great at home alternative.)

Hope everyone has a nice, and healthy new year!

In a pinch for time? Use the Rapid Glow!

Want a Spray Tan, but do not have the time to sit around to wait for it to develop? Brushed Artistry offers a Rapid Tan! With a regular spray tan, you have to wait at least 8 hours to shower. With the Rapid, you can shower in as little as 2 hours depending on the darkness of the tan that you would like! This is a fantastic option for last minute tans, rainy days, last minute plans, and tanning emergencies. You know that 5-hour warning before you are told you have an event? We got you girls (or guys)! Our solution will leave your skin looking naturally bronzed. ALWAYS remember with these kinds of tans to keep an eye on the time.

The longer the solution is on your skin, the darker the tan will be. You will notice quite a bit of bronzer come off in your shower, but do not worry it is only the bronzer rinsing off, not your tan. Allow 24 hours for the skin to reach its peak level of darkness. Even after the solution is rinsed off, the tan will still continue to get darker on most skin types for the next 12-24 hours.

Please keep in mind that all tanning solutions are different! Just because you rinsed with a certain companies Rapid in a certain amount of time does not mean you will get the same results with every rapid solution on the market. For our Brushed Artistry Rapid Glow, these are the times we recommend to rinse off for each level of darkness:

2 Hours for a LIGHT tan

4 Hours for a MEDIUM tan

6 Hours for a DARK tan

8 Hours for an EXTRA DARK  tan

Having a Rapid tan makes it easier to go about your day. It is much easier for you (or your client) to set aside 2-6 hours rather than 8.  Happy tanning, and hope everyone is having a great week!

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

Has the cold weather taken a toll on your usually baby soft skin, or does your skin tend to be dry normally? If you usually have dry skin then I am sure moisturizer is a part of your everyday routine, but did you know that you should moisturize even more with a spray tan? Especially during these cold winter months (and the occasional cold week here in sunny Florida), your skin can tend to get dry. Using a moisturizer at least twice a day is a MUST when you get a spray tan. I assure that doing this will only improve your over-all spray tan, and spray tan experience, from when you first get it to when it starts to fade.

ALWAYS be sure to use a moisturizer that DOES NOT contain ALCOHOL or MINERAL OIL. These Ingredients are spray tan KILLERS and can cause your spray to fade much more rapidly. One that I highly recommend is Perfect Glow Moisturizer. It has done wonders on my own skin, and every one of my clients that have used it.

Now for those of you who don’t spray tan (what are you doing? lol) also even if you do not have dry skin, it is still important to stay moisturized. It should be an everyday part of your beauty routine no matter what kind of skin you have. Did you know prolonged use of moisturizer will reduce fine lines, and wrinkles as you age? So keep that skin moisturized, your skin will be sure to thank you as well as your spray tan artist!

3 Ways to Use Coconut Oil to Make Your Spray Tan LAST!

                                           coconuts-500x400                                                      

If you haven’t already noticed there is tons of research coming out about the benefits of using Coconut Oil. From using it while cooking to brushing your teeth, using it on your hair… but did you know it can even help you out with your SPRAY TAN? Here is how!

Make a DIY Scrub, to use while preparing for your spray tan using COCONUT OIL! I will be posting my own special blend for my favorite scrub in my next blog, but a mix of sugar and coconut oil will do the trick. You can find tons of other recipes on Pinterest as well. Exfoliating your skin before your spray tan helps to get off all the dead skin cells so that the application is even. The Coconut Oil also works as a moisturizing treatment for your skin, and moisturized skin takes better to Spray Tan.

   OrganicCoconutOil

Use COCONUT OIL as a daily moisturizer before your spray tan, and after your spray tan for baby soft skin! Dry or flaky skin will fade unevenly causing your Spray Tan to look uneven, and blotchy. A little bit of Coconut Oil goes a long way when using it as a body moisturizer. Put a small bit in your hand, and gently rub all over. Moisturized skin stays tanner longer and fades the most evenly.

You can also use Coconut Oil to shave your legs. When shaving while you have a spray tan ALWAYS use a NEW razor NEVER a dull one. Also ALWAYS be sure to use something to shave with. I usually use conditioner but have been mixing in some Coconut Oil as well. It works GREAT! My skin is silky smooth, and it does not take off my golden glow.

So what are you waiting for? If you don’t already have some laying around the house be sure to pick up a jar of Coconut Oil the next time you are out. Your Brushed Artistry Spray Tan, and skin will thank you!

Tanning Tip Tuesday! Tips for Shaving and Spray Tans

TIPS FOR SHAVING WHILE ROCKING A BRUSHED ARTISTRY SPRAY TAN

1. NEVER USE A DULL RAZOR WHILE YOU HAVE A SPRAY TAN

Since Spray Tans are only on the top 25% of our skin, dull razors sometimes tend to take dead skin along with them too (your spray tan). This could result in an uneven fade or even a big line where you shaved. Coating your razor in Olive Oil will help to preserve it, and make it last longer.

2. Keep your razor blade SHARP by soaking it in Olive Oil

Did you know that you can preserve your razor by soaking it in olive oil? During the summer we most definitely use our razor more than any other time of year. We need to extend the lives of our daily used razors as long as possible because using a dull razor on your spray tan will not have great results.

3. Shave with CONDITIONER

Not only do most conditioners not contain the ingredients that are not good to use with spray tans (alcohol, mineral oil) but they help to keep your legs SILKY SMOOTH. This will also prolong the life of your tan! I use a $1 conditioner from Publix, and it works great. Even cheaper than a lot of shaving creams!
