Bleaching before spray tan

by Lizzie

Question: I've heard that using certain moisturisers and make up less than 24 hours before the spray tan will repel the tanning solution. Does this occur with skin-hair bleaches?

Answer: Bleaching solutions will not repel the tanning solutions, however, if there is even the slightest trace of bleach left on your skin it will bleach your tan, and you will come out looking patchy.

To avoid it, I would bleach my body hair 2 days before my spray tan, and make sure I get 2 showers in between involving good amount of scrubbing to remove all traces of chlorine.
