HOW MANY SPRAY TANS WILL I GET FROM ONE LITRE OF SPRAY TAN?
A question that we get asked quite often is ‘how many spray tans will I get out of one litre of spray tan solution?’
There are many factors that must be taken into consideration when answering this, there is no easy answer to this, so many will often hear me asking a series of questions first.
What equipment are you using for spray tanning and more specifically what kind of applicator gun do you have?
There are so many on the market that spray very little on the skin to ones that you could spray the back fence with. These kinds of ones have a far greater output of solution, so you will use way too much & these create so much overspray, you might end up tanning yourself as well as your client.
Most applicator guns need 50 - 100ml of spray tan solution, anymore than this is not necessary. Ensure you read your equipments manual and this will tell you how much your applicator gun holds.
How you Spray:
There is no right or wrong way to spray tan with Minx Bronzing liquids, everyone has their own style, but it’s how far do you hold the gun away from the body?
We suggest that you keep the applicator gun in nice and close to the body. The ideal distance, we believe is 10cms away from the body at all times. Maintaining this ensures that all parts of the area that you are tanning is covered.
How many Coats do you need to do?
One to Two coats of Minx Bronzing spray tan liquids is enough. The skin can only deal with so much solution on the skin, anymore than this is a waste of product and your client could potentially look like they have rolled in dorito’s.
This is unless you are doing competition tans or body building tans, but thats a whole other blog for a rainy day!
So in considering all these points & more we suggest that;
One litre of Minx Bronzing spray tan solution will yield 20-25 double coat full body sprays.
Ahhh Winter is almost upon us...
Winter is a time of comforting layers, trousers, jumpers and we hide the tanning mitt, and the appointments for a spray tan are fewer and far between.
TAN DRY - FASTER, DARKER, DRIER...
Absorbs any stickiness on the skin after you have had a spray tan leaving your skin feeling velvety smooth and dry.
Regular cleaning of equipment is super important!
It is important to ensure that you regularly clean your spray tan gun and machine filter in order for your equipment to work at its potential.
