Use a sharp razor when shaving with a spray tan
Since spray tans only affect 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 distinct difference in color where you shaved. One way to avoid this is to only shave with a new or sharp razor. It’s always best to limit the amount of times you shave after a spray tan but when you do make sure to use a fresh razor for best results.
Keep your razor blade sharp by soaking it in olive oil or alcohol
Did you know that you can preserve your razor by soaking it in olive oil or alcohol? During the summer, we most definitely shave 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 could end up taking not only unwanted hair, but skin (and you tan) as well. Next time you use a new razor, rinse it off and soak it in olive oil or alcohol during the time between your next shave. You’ll find out the razor stays sharp longer than when you just leave it in the shower where it’s exposed to moisture.
Shave with conditioner
Most conditioners do not contain ingredients like alcohol and mineral oil that is often found in soaps and shaving cream. Using products with alcohol and mineral oil can cause your sunless tan to fade prematurely. A conditioner can help to keep your legs smooth and also help prolong the life of your tan! You’ll find that typically a conditioner is cheaper than shaving gels or creams.
After you shave use a Norvell Prolong sunless tan extender
It's always best to have a product on hand like Norvell Prolong to help moisturize your skin and extend the life of your spray tan. This goes double for after you shave with a spray tan. Prolong is a sunless moisturizer that combines a hint of color and natural enzymes to provide 24 hour skin hydration.
