Rosacea patients should always consult their Dermatologist first, before being sprayed. And if they are given the Okay for facial spraying, use a clear, scent free product formulated for the sensitive skinned clients such as Tampa Bay Tan Tan Extraordinaire in Clear Tint, which is also fragrance free. Be sure to test on a small area on the face first, to see if this causes a reaction.
Alternatively, they can also find a zinc oxide, or titanium dioxide sunscreen that they like for daily use on the face.
This can be purchased in tinted formulas to better match your natural or spraytanned flesh tone, or even have a “tanned” tint added in by a compounding pharmacy, to match the client sunless spraytan on their body.
These options can help eliminate the risk of irritation.
