Spray Tan Charleston SC

Spray Tans for your Fall Wedding | Charleston, SC

With fall around the corner, the golden glow you worked so hard to obtain all summer may be fading. Or you may be following a healthier routine of avoiding over-exposure to the sun. Whatever the case, a spray tan with FDA approved Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is a safe and attractive alternative to putting your skin at risk under tanning lamps. Coming in for a spray tan prior to your wedding is the best way to ensure you carry a healthy glow down the aisle on your special day.

Before Your Spray Tan

A spray tan lasts, on average, 4-10 days, depending upon your maintenance routine and your skin chemistry. You’ll want to plan your appointment accordingly. Any waxing appointments or exfoliation, including facials or chemical peels, should be completed well in advance of your tanning appointment. It is recommended that you wax a full 24 hours before your tanning session, to allow your skin time to prepare.

On the day of your appointment, shower and exfoliate to remove any dead skin cells. This will help ensure the product is applied evenly and prevent streaking or patching. Do not apply any lotions or use scented body wash. Plan to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing. You will not be able to shower, swim, or engage in vigorous exercise for at least 6-8 hours following your tanning session.

During your Spray Tan Appointment

You may wish to wear minimal clothing during your appointment for the best coverage. Remember that any clothing will result in tan lines. Minimal undergarments are important to protect your intimate areas. The solution should not come into contact with any mucous membranes. Use chapstick or lip balm to protect your lips, and apply a clear coat of nail polish to avoid staining your nails.

After your Spray Tan

Following your spray tan, you’ll want to give the formula time to develop. It’s important to avoid showering for 6-8 hours following your tan. Wear loose-fitting, dark colored clothing to prevent the solution from rubbing off. Consider sleeping in the same clothing to avoid staining sheets. After your initial shower, you can wear makeup and use non-alcoholic, unscented lotion as usual.

Spray Tan Charleston SC

Opt for sunless options like spray tanning applied with an airbrush machine and performed by a professional technician. Glowing skin shouldn’t age you or cost you your health.

Signs that your skin is aging prematurely are a blotchy complexion and rough, reddish patches of skin seen mostly around the temples and cheeks are indicators of premature ageing. Sun spots, leathery skin texture, and loose and wrinkled skin are also clear indications of prematurely aging skin.


UV radiation, whether from natural or artificial sources, damages the skin.  There is no such thing as a safe tan when it comes to the sun or tanning beds. The increase in skin pigment, called melanin, which causes the tan color change in your skin is a sign of damage. 

When UV rays reach your skin, they damage cells in the epidermis. In response, your immune system increases blood flow to the affected areas.

Spray Tan Charleston SC

Spray tanning is a form of self tanning where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body.  This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone also known as DHA that interacts with your own skin’s chemistry to turn it tan, or bronze.

The effects of the DHA are temporary. You are constantly shedding dead skin cells.  Spray tans typically last from 3-7 days and are a healthier option for deepening your skin color.

Worldwide 160,000 people will be diagnosed with melanoma this year alone.  One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. Those statistics are staggering.  Approximately 75 percent of skin cancer deaths are from melanoma.

Some risk factors for skin cancer include unprotected and or excessive exposure to ultraviolet radiation which includes sunlight or tanning booths and lamps, other risk factors include if you or other members of your family have had skin cancers, several sunburns in the past, and multiple or unusual moles.

Spray Tan Charleston SC | Melanoma Facts

Melanoma can occur any time of the year. In fact UVA rays are intense on clear and cloudy days. Melanoma doesn't care what skin tone you have. While darker skinned people are less likely to get sun burns and UV radiation damage, it in no way limits the risk of developing skin cancer.  All skin types can develop melanoma.

Melanoma can occur anywhere on the body.  It does not just occur on body parts that have been exposed to the sun. While sunlight is definitely a factor in developing skin cancer, melanoma can and does develop in places that rarely see the light of day.

Tanning in a tanning bed is just as bad as tanning outside.   Tanning beds release a large amount of ultraviolet radiation.
