I had a client yesterday who was quite nervous about having her spray. She seemed to be quite sweaty when I was spraying and it was very wet looking as I was applying. She is on medication for MS so I did wonder if it was that, but once it dried it looked great. Only problem was when she put her arm down is rubbed where she sweated. I dried with the machine where I could but is there a good way to deal with sweat when applying. She text me to say she is happy this morning so i can't have done too bad!

If she was happy, u did good!

I would perhaps use the hose prior to her tan next time to dry the area/body if needed. Xx

You can use baby wipes under arms etc where excess sweat occurs prior to spraying and talc after spraying to help stop tan from washing away.

Melk- would a small towel or flannel not work better? Or what baby wipes do u use? Here in the uk most wipes leave a residue on the skin which can go green when sprayed-so I'd personally avoid doing that. Xx

Thank you. So i could put a bit of talc on under her arms and that might help reduce the wetness? And stop it rubbing off when she outs her arms down? Hopefully she won't be as nervous next time!

I purchased extra tips and tricks of a Aussie tanning instructor and she says to use baby wipes if client has forgotten to remove deodorant and underarms turn green or discolored or is sweaty. I have yet to try it. You do need to let the underarm dry before spraying. the talc she also advises as here it can get quite hot. Behind knees, elbow and underarm areas that sweat sits and will effect tan development.

After tanning to stop perspiration from diluting tan. Either pat on or for a fine dusting hold in palm and blow on with air from gun.

I found the tanning mitt really came into it's own on the back of knees and armpits... :) dab gently and then spray another fine coat over. works for me :)
