Step 1: If you have noticed white spots on your skin 24-48 hours after your spray tan these are simply spots where the tan did not adhere to your skin. Your first step will be to take a shower and gently rinse, then pat dry using a towel.
Step 2: Rub an exfoliating cleanser into the white spot. Pay attention when applying the cleanser to only rub it into the white spot and not the surrounding tan skin. Exfoliating helps to remove the dead skin cells, dirt and oils that originally caused the white spots.
Step 4: Cover the white spots with a store bought self tanning product (gloves optional). Use broad, even strokes to apply the product. If the spot is very small, use a Q-tip to apply the self-tanner.
Step 5: Allow the self-tanner to dry for at least 20 minutes. During this time, don't allow the white spots to come into contact with anything so avoid putting clothing on over the spots. Steer clear of water for at least three hours after applying the self-tanner and wait until the following day before taking a shower.
If you follow the above steps you should be able to correct any areas where the spray tan did not adhere to your skin. So if this happens to you, don't freak out or try to rub the white spots or decide to get another spray tan. There is a reason why the spray tan solution did not stick to your skin in the first place but with this information you will be able to cover up white spots like a seasoned spray tanner!
