Spray Tan for a Wedding

Spray Tan for a Wedding

When preparing for your big day, you’ll want to be sure that you’re exuding the healthy glow that reflects your joy. Your makeup, your hair, your waxing and facial, all of it comes together to create the most beautiful presentation for your walk down the aisle. Your even-toned, bronzed skin provides a healthy glow, making you shine on your big day.

Spray Tan

Although over the counter formulas are available, it’s advisable to have your spray tan professionally applied to avoid streaking, dripping, or uneven application. Some salons offer a spray tan machine, but there is still a danger of uneven application. When you come to Lashes and Lace for your spray tan, you can be assured that your tanning product will be applied by an aesthetician with experience in creating a perfectly even coat. 

How Long does a Spray Tan Last?

A high quality airbrushed spray tan will last from 10 to 15 days with proper preparation before tanning and proper care following your session. Be sure to discuss with your aesthetician what to do to make your tan last as long as possible. It is recommended that you have your spray tan applied several days before your big day.

Some Tips for Your Spray Tan Session:

Shower in preparation for your session, and exfoliate. Do not apply moisturizers or lotions prior to tanning. Bring clothes that you don’t mind having stained. Loose-fitting clothes are best following your tan, so that tight clothing doesn’t rub any of the color off before it has a chance to set. Follow your aesthetician’s instructions carefully, and enjoy your new look for a full two weeks. 

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.
