Exfoliate on the morning of your spray tan.
For non regular spray tanners: The tan solution penetrates only the dead skin cells. There is a build up of dead skin cells on top of it. The thicker the layer, the sooner it will rub off. If you exfoliate, the layer will be very shallow, and it will take a while for it to “build up”. Your tan will last longer. It is advised to use either an exfoliating glove or products that don’t contain any oils, otherwise the oily barrier can stop the spray tanning solution getting through. Its NOT advisable to roughly scrub and pull on skin as it causes ageing and micro tearing which damages the skin in the long run.
For regular spray tanners its not advisable to scrub hard every week, just the odd parts that require light tan removal (especially feet) the best tested routine is to skip using soaps/foaming washes on your skin and switch that with an aqueous cream to wash your skin. Use bar soaps/washes for the intimate bits, arm pits and feet. Follow that up with Nutraderm® /Nutraplus® body cream for afterwards to hydrate the skin and avoid dry patches which is the sole cause for patchiness when the tan fades. This has an accumulated effect, thus only the regular spray tanners are advised to do this as it will take a week or two to take effect. Its NOT advisable to roughly scrub and pull on skin as it causes ageing and micro tearing which damages the skin in the long run.
