How to get the best spray tan for your wedding, prom or other important occasion.Written by Boshena Warzecha
Some occasions demand for you to look your absolute best, and nothing short of perfection should satisfy you. What "would do" at other times is just not good enough at those moments.
That is why if you are getting married, going to a prom or have other, very important function, expectation on your spray tan to turn out great will also be very high.
There are few steps that you need to take to make sure that a bad spray tan will not spoil your day:
1. If you've never had a spray tan before, make sure that you have a trial few weeks before occasion. You do not know how your skin will react to solution. Although chances of going orange are very remote, how would you feel if it happen on day of your wedding or prom? Scary!
2. Stay away from dark tan. Get lightest shade possible. You want focus to be on you and that special dress. The tan should be invisible, adding just a "glow".
3. If you are wearing white, or very light coloured dress, find a salon where they have very little or no bronzer in solution. In a lot of people bronzer will get into pores and when they sweat, it will stain dress, sometimes permanently.
4. Take extra care in your preparation before tan. Exfoliate very well with proper products, and apply barrier cream all over your hands and feet before spray tanning.

Looking tanned is such a great feeling, isnít it?
There are three methods of getting that feeling. 1.Getting out into sun. Great if you are young, and believe that all this hype about skin cancer has nothing to do with you. Goes hand in hand with high alcohol consumption, speeding and living on credit. It will catch up with you sooner than you think. 2.Solarium. Possibly a little more sensible solution if you take it easy, and build up your tan very gradually. Might lower your chances of getting skin cancer if you never burn, but if you tan regularly, it will definitely not save you from real bad skin damage and broken capillaries (very high temperatures boil blood in your capillaries- yuk). 3.Spray tan. A relative newcomer. It can take less than one minute to apply (in a booth), does not damage your skin in any way and saves you hours and hours on trips to and from solariums or lying on beach.
Spray tanning seems to be such a great solution, so why doesnít everybody, who wants a tanned look, do it?
Judging from reactions that I encounter at my salon, it seems mainly to be cost. A single session can cost up to $70 in some places, average being about $50.
Isnít it cheaper to go to beach? If you are asking this question, chances are, you are still very young. Look at your mum. She is probably spending hundreds, and hundreds of dollars per year trying to reverse damage of frying on beach in her youth. Unfortunately, our generation was told that getting suntan was healthy (whom can we sue for those lies?).
She also has to watch her skin very closely to make sure that she catches any cancerous changes early.
Solariums- a cheaper alternative? Apart from also causing serious skin damage long term, how much does it cost in money terms?
