Special Occasion Spray Tanning--Four Things to Consider

February 27, 2014

Whether it's prom, ball, a wedding or graduation, getting a spray tan for your special occasion can be a nerve wrecking, especially if it's your first time.  The following are a few tips to ensure great results:

 

  1. Schedule a trial run.  To achieve the best results, we recommend scheduling a trial airbrush tanning session. You may want to sample the color to see how your skin reacts.  That way you can go darker or lighter for that special day.  Make sure that your spray tan technician is experienced and listens to your needs. We've heard the horror stories-- too orange, streaks, faded too soon.  Going to a technician that is fully trained to listen to your needs, analyze your skin and customize your solution, will allow you to look and feel your best on your special day.  At True Waxology & Skincare in Walnut Creek, our technicians are licensed estheticians, trained to analyze your skin and customize your golden glow to ensure great results.  

  2. Schedule your appointment 48 hours before your event. It takes about 24 hours for your tan to fully develop.  The instant color you get after your session is a cosmetic bronzer formulated to give you instant gratification.  When you shower you will notice the bronzer washing away down the drain.  Have no fear, the DHA is already working its magic.  For that reason you don't want to get dressed for your special event right after getting a spray tan.  Unless you get a rapid tan (2 hours) you do not want to risk ruining your dress with solution stains induced by fricition and sweat.  Yuck!  Call us and we will determine the best plan of action.

  3. Exfoliate! Scrub your body from head to toe to slough off the dead skin cells. This will allow the tan to "stick" and last longer.  Remember, the tan fades as dead skin cell shed.  By exfoliating you buy some time.

  4. Tan Extending Lotion.  If you're heading on your honeymoon or want to extend the life of your tan, purchase our True Tan Extender.  It's a rich cream formulated with DHA and guaranteed to keep you nice and bronzy.  Remember, keep your skin moisturized.  If dry scaly skin flakes off, so does your tan.

 

With proper planning and aftercare, you are guaranteed a beautiful experience.  Trust us!
