What’s the Deal with Double Dipping?

Jun 6, 2019 | Blog

Have you ever heard of double dipping before? A double dip is when you use a UV Sunbed and then immediately Spray tan afterward! The best part about a double dip is the Sunbed will help open your pores, give you a more even color, and allow for you to receive a more even and natural Spray tan!

If you are looking to get a big boost of deep, dark, and natural color – getting a double dip is perfect for that!

In order for you to prepare for a double dip, you will want to shower, shave, and exfoliate the night before to remove all excess dead skin cells. When going into the tanning bed, you will want to avoid any Bronzers containing DHA or a silicone base tanning lotion – as this can block the DHA absorption in the Spray tan. For best results, you will want to use a Primer made for your skin type when tanning and getting a Spray tan, to ensure you are getting the most natural color. For advice on the best products for your double dip, ask your tanning consultants in the salon for recommendations.

Waiting 4-6 hours to take a shower will help for the full color to develop. When showering, make sure you do not use a washcloth or loofah – as that will exfoliate your skin and take off some of your tan.

The results from your double dip session will last anywhere from 5-7 days if you take care of your skin by using tan extending lotions, avoiding harsh chlorine, and exfoliation.

We hope you will give it a try – especially if you are looking to get some deep color before a big event, this would be the perfect excuse to pop in!

Happy Tanning!
