But even so, there are essential steps you should be taking to make sure you get the best results possible.
Do your research in advance and test
Because no one would want a spray tan gone wrong sort of experience, on one of the most important days, it is always safe and smart to take precautionary measures. You might be surprised or overwhelmed by the many options and offers you will encounter, but it is important to have the necessary information before picking a salon or technician.
Do a checklist and include things like the chemicals used in their formula and how safe they are, their experience and portfolio quality, the reviews and their certifications. Finding a professional that offers trials or testing in advance is something you should definitely be seeking. This is a great way to try it before the big day and decide if it is right for you
Choose airbrush tanning instead of booths or sprays
Many brides-to-be opt for airbrush tanning as there are many benefits. Firstly, the person performing the process has to be certified so that not only they are skilled to use the equipment, but also able to counsel and offer advice. Secondly, this option ensures evenness, which is perpetually an issue with alternatives. Because it gives you a customized tanning, it has the ability to fulfil any tanning needs, such as detail to tones and parts of your body.
Make sure you make your appointment at least 1-2 day before your wedding, so that the tan has plenty of time to settle into your skin and look its possible glowing best. Proper moisturizing is also key. However, bear in mind you should choose a lotion low in oils and stick to a basic one to make sure you don’t undo your brand new tan either. The same goes for exfoliation – as important as it is to maintain your tan even and your skin soft, you shouldn’t apply too much pressure or rub it off. Light strokes are recommended.
If you do decide that to achieve your pitch perfect day you do need a tan, ensure you keep that natural feel to it. An airbrush tanning session takes about 30 minutes, much more than what 5-7 minutes of spraying would, but the differences could mean the world. Instead of having to do it yourself or with a friend, have a professional guide you through it. It is after all, your special day.
