One of the best ways to get the bridal glow you want on your wedding day is with a spray tan. While this is an easy way for brides to get the color they desire, some worry about their skin turning orange or the color rubbing off on their dresses. By using the right spray tan company, you can easily prevent those fears from ever becoming a reality. We have some reliable tips to help you get the perfect pre-wedding spray tan.
Shower and Exfoliate
To achieve the best possible results with your spray tan, gently exfoliate your skin and follow up with a shower one day before your wedding spray tan appointment. Using an exfoliating mitt or a dry brush can help remove dead or dry skin, as well as any residual oils or soaps from lotions or moisturizers. Then take a cleansing shower to rinse away excess soap and residue. For hair removal (waxing, shaving, threading, etc.), it’s a good idea to take care of all of these processes more than 12 hours prior to your spray tan appointment.
On the day of your wedding spray tan appointment, make sure there is nothing on your skin. This includes deodorant, perfume, makeup, and self-tanners; all of these will impact how evenly your spray tan goes on.
Go for a Pedicure or Manicure Before Spray Tanning
The rules here are simple: mani/pedi first, spray tan second. This is important, as oils and lotions from nail salons may results in an uneven spray tan application. If your schedule does not permit, just be sure to avoid soaking your nails in water.
Spray Tan Two or Three Days Before Your Wedding
Getting your spray tan 2-3 days prior to your wedding allows one’s tan to fully settle, preventing any excess color from getting on the brides’ dress. These two to three days will also give brides the chance to thoroughly rinse off all cosmetic bronzer, keeping wedding dresses clean and white.
Consider Tan Lines
When getting a wedding spray tan, brides must consider wearing anything that could give them tan lines. This includes bathing suit straps, tank tops, and other tops that could interfere with tan lines
Get a Trial Tan
Because some individuals are not accustomed to getting spray tans on a regular basis, they may be surprised by the results. In order to ensure that you’re happy with your tan, schedule a trial tanning session with a reputable spray tan company. This will allow you to get to know your tanning specialist and find your correct shade. We suggest booking a trial sooner rather than later, but no less than 2 weeks away, as this will be too close to the wedding and impact the coloring of your wedding spray tan.
