Do’s & Don’t of Spray Tanning

Do’s & Don’t of Spray Tanning: Planning Ahead

In the heat of summer, my social calendar is filling up with tons of outdoor events! Weddings, BBQ’s, bridal showers, and bachelorette parties have quickly became a part of my summer weekends. One thing I’ve been sure to do in the midst of the craziness, is schedule ahead and plan my spray tans around these events to ensure I look my absolute best. Many things go into dressing up – hair, makeup, outfit, shoes. An amazing tan is all a girl needs to add the finishing touch! Here are a few of my do’s and don’ts for spray tanning:

DO: Shave, exfoliate, and keep your skin moisturized beforehand. Always remember to shave and exfoliate at least 24 hours in advance to ensure smooth and even application. Moisturize for a couple days beforehand to keep your skin properly hydrated. However, do not have a moisturizer on when your receive your spray, you’ll want your skin to be completely bare and product-free.

DON’T: get a manicure or pedicure after your spray tan. The warm water and chemicals will strip your tan. Make sure to do your nails at least 24-48 hours in advance.

DO: Make sure your tan is the right shade for you by doing a trial run or sticking to your normal color. The goal is to not have your spray tan stick out. Thanks to technology, spray tan consultants are able to analyze your skin color and help you choose and customize the right color for you.

DON’T: wait until the day of for your spray tan. Spray tanning is something you’ll want to do at least 24-48 hours ahead of time. This gives the spray tan time to settle and adds a little extra time to your routine just in case.

Setting a beauty routine and planning ahead will save you the stress of waiting until the last minute. With proper care and ample preparation, you’ll have the most beautiful tan for your events!

Best Colors to Accentuate Your Spray Tan

A beautiful, natural spray tan is the best accessory a girl can have. I just feel like the best version of me with a fresh tan. It stands out in a crowd, but always looks natural at the same time. For an aspiring fashionista like myself, one of the best things about a spray tan is how it changes the way clothes look on me. I feel thinner, more chic and just…sexy! But, sometimes I really want my tan to be the star of the show, so I accessorize it with some of these looks:

 
 
 

MAKE YOUR TAN “POP”

Although it might seem like white could wash out your color, with a tan, the white contrasts against your skin, making it seem darker and more pronounced. Try incorporating white into your everyday wear – tank tops, short sleeves, blouses, etc., for a pronounced, yet classic and simple way to really make your tan pop.

STAY GOLDEN

Known for bringing optimism and warmth, shades of gold can accentuate your skin and make your tone look even warmer. Gold especially highlights a tan when worn for a fancy event. Not only is it known for being the most glamorous color, it truly can take your tan from “eh” to “WOW!” Check out Kate Hudson on the red carpet – she looks stunning in the sleek gold – a total golden goddess!

RADIATE IN SAPPHIRE

Ahh, sapphire. It has so much beauty and mystery. The electric color has the power to accent your skin and amplify the shade to its matching electric level.

For those days when you’re feeling a little extra fierce, try some of these color combinations to complement your beautiful spray tan. You can thank me later! c/o CelebritiesDoIt.com
