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!

Save your skin this summer!

hot girl under umbrella

Wouldn’t you want to be that hot tan person chilling under an umbrella drink in hand, that person sweating profusely in direct sunlight?

Spray Tans are awesome in that way because you already look tan so you’re not trying to GET a tan. You are also saving your skin, by shielding it from the awful effects of the sun. We know EVERYONE loves to be tan during the summer, so I say we all try to take a different approach to that. Instead of laying this summer SPRAY! Also be sure to wear a potent sunscreen, and take shade where possible. Bring your own shade if needed (umbrellas, tents etc.) and keep your skin looking golden bronze without the sun damage.

How to maintain a Spray Tan all year long!

Did you know you can maintain a Spray Tan year round, and never lose that glow you love so much?

We have countless clients who keep weekly appointments with us, and enjoy the luxury of never losing their glow. Want to be like them? ( I do!) Here is how…

The first step would be to speak with your spray tan artist to find the best solution for your skin. I personally recommend our Premium solution, since it fades the best.

Once you book your appointment, the next step is to moisturize leading up to it. Moisturizer is going to play a large role in keeping your skin healthy, and glowing. Also be sure to moisturize regularly throughout the life of your tan.

The next thing you will want to do before your tan is to exfoliate, our Dermasuri mitts are perfect for this! Ask your spray tan artist about getting one of these in your spray tan care kit!

You never want to layer spray tan over spray tan. This will lead to blotchy, and uneven fading. Be sure to get ALL of your old spray tan off before getting a new one. If you are having trouble removing all of the spray pick up a pack of Polident (yes the denture cleaner). Take 4-5 tablets, and put them in a hot bath. Soak in the bath for at least 20 minutes, then exfoliate after. All of your leftover spray tan should come off, leaving a fresh canvas for your new one.

Some clients can exfoliate normally without using the Polident. It all depends on your skin, and the way it reacts to the tan.

So if you are wondering if you can keep a Glowing Skin tan ALL the time, the answer is yes. Be sure to book your standing appointments, as they fill up very quickly!

Summer is over, it’s time to for you to Fall in love with your tan. Always remember during fall, and winter months our skin gets drier. To ensure that your spray tan lasts the longest you will want to moisturize your skin leading up to the tan, and after. Be sure to exfoliate all the old skin from the summer, freshly moisturized skin tans better.

Many people turn to tan beds during these months to maintain a healthy glow. Tanning beds, are not good for you and have been a proven factor that causes melanoma aka Skin Cancer. Use the healthy alternative this fall, and winter seasons and choose a spray tan instead!

Our spray tans leave a natural, more even color than you can achieve in the sun. You can also eliminate all those tans lines you got laying out by the pool all summer.

Recently we have added a new tan to our services, this tan will develop in as little as ONE hour! It is infused with Moroccan oil to help keep your skin hydrated during these drier. months. Ask your spray tan artist about this new product today!

Happy First Day of Summer!

If you live in Florida than you have been feeling the summer heat for quite some time. Have you been going to the beach, pool, or on the lake? If you have then we highly suggest wearing sunscreen. The damages from the sun can be very dangerous, especially if not treated in a timely fashion. I hear you saying to yourself right now, but I want to be tan! Trust me, we all do. Although baking in the sun is not the way to do it. There are much safer alternatives that will give you that same healthy glow.

Here at Brushed Artistry, we specialize in natural, even, and evenly fading Spray Tans. We also have body contouring available to take your tan to the next level. With body contouring, you can not only give the appearance of a skinnier more flattering figure, but you can also accentuate muscles to make all that working out that you do even more noticeable. Can the sun do that? I didn’t think so. Take the healthy alternative way to get a tan, and save the skin you are in this summer! Your skin will thank you! Your golden summer tan is just a call away at 321-276-0863 for more info. We look forward to giving you the summer glow, that usually takes all summer to achieve!

Summer is gone, but that doesn’t mean your tan has to be!

It’s starting to get cold (unless you live in Florida) so those trips to the beach and pool have most likely trickled out of your schedule. Don’t let yourself get pasty white this year, and book Spray Tans instead! Spray tanning is a SAFE alternative compared to the harmful UV rays of tanning beds. You don’t want to look like a prune when you get older, do you? I did not think so… and neither do I! Make the safe choice, and trade the tanning bed for a Spray Tan. I guarantee you that your future self and your skin will thank you for it!

Now here are some tips to keep your spray tan looking flawless all winter.

Colder weather not only comes with coats, and pants. It also comes with dry skin. When spray tanning during these months you are going to want to keep your skin extra moisturized. Do not only moisturize after you have got sprayed but prep your skin before as well adding extra lotion the days leading up to your spray tan. Be sure that you are using a lotion that contains NO ALCOHOL and NO MINERAL OIL. These ingredients will work against your tan instead of with it, causing it to fade more rapidly, or even possibly fade unevenly. I love using coconut oil as a natural moisturizer, it works GREAT!

Another thing you want to be aware of in the winter is you are most likely not going to want to go as dark as you did during the summer. Not only will this look more natural, but your skin is most likely a lighter tone from not being in the sun. You always want to make sure to choose the right shade for the occasion.

I hope everyone had an amazing summer, but always remember just because the summer is over does not mean your tan has to be 😉

Taking the crown with a Brushed Artistry Spray Tan

image-2

When it comes to pageants a spray tan is a very important part of your pre-pageant routine. Not just any spray tan, a flawless spray tan. I would also recommend full body contouring for this type of event.

image-1

We were honored to spray some AMAZING ladies this pageant season. We would like to congratulate ALL of them for winning the crown! We are happy to have Miss Orlando, Miss Princess America, and Miss Lake Eola in our Brushed Artistry family. You girls deserve it, and it is always a pleasure working with you.

Brushed Artistry’s mobile services make it easy for these girls who are constantly on the run. Prepping for the pageants, and living their normal day to day lives. For ladies competing in pageants I ALWAYS recommend to book a trial appointment before they need to be tanned for the actual event. I do this because everyone’s skin is different, some people can achieve darker colors than others when applying the exact same solution. This way the girls know the exact color and can customize it to be lighter or darker (if they would like to, most of the time nothing needs adjusting) before the big day. What I love most about Glowing Skin’s Sunless Solutions is that they ARE customizable. Other solutions I have worked with in the past have been either one color for everyone, or a light, medium, and dark. With Brushed Artistry, I can create the absolutely perfect, most natural looking color for my clients. NEVER Orange, NEVER streaky, ALWAYS flawless. Continue reading

A Sunless Tan Summer

You think summer, and you think TAN. Tan skin, lightened hair, beach days, bikinis, and boats. Especially living in Florida, I have always loved to get my tan on, but this summer I did it a little bit differently. I hit the beach already looking amazing, and tan.

 10489723_10100995425855973_424276661400596107_n

I applied sunscreen as recommended (Oil-free SPF 30) PROTECTING instead of DAMAGING my skin. Skin damage these days is no joke, some sun is good – yes. Vitamin D is great, but prolonged exposure especially burning causes skin damage and premature aging. How did I do this? How could I have an amazing tan while protecting my skin that still looks natural? Glowing Skin Sunless Tanning Solution, it changed my summer.

I have years of sunless tanning experience and have worked with many solutions. Although I never liked using those solutions on myself. I never liked the color they made me, they did not last, and when it faded I was the one looking like a fish (scaly uneven spots). Thanks to Brushed Artistry I spray tan all the time now (Thank you, Robin, you’re amazing)! It was SO nice being able to explore the Outer Banks without having to worry about laying out, turning over, etc. in order to get the color I wanted. I had it before I even left my house!
