will underarm spray affect spray tan?

Question: will it make a funny color if i have underarm spray on when going to get my spray tan?

Answer: Yes, I have seen armpits turn green as the spray tanning solution reacts with deodorant, so don't do it.
If you have to wear deodorant before you go for spray tan make sure you wipe it with wet towelettes really thoroughly otherwise you might look like a relative of Shrek.

tan and gel nails
by: Anonymous

I'm getting gel nails and a spray tan tomorrow what should get done first?

I would not really do it on the same day unless you wear nail savers. I have seen before gel nails ruined when spray tan was applied too soon after the nails.

Nail savers are always a good thing, even if you have not had your nails done anyway.

if the spraytan reacts with deodarant with fake bake will it wash of after when u shower


Answer Most of it will, but some green color can persist, or there will be a white patch instead of tan. It is best to wipe it off with a wet towelette as soon as you notice it and respray it.

If it happens in the salon, they will take care of it, but if that happens after you get home, then wipe it off and then apply a small amount of self tanner.

Make sure it is not too much, you don't want to have really dark armpits, it is better to apply more the next day rather than having to scrub your armpits if they go too dark.
