Spray Tanning !! Yay or Nay??

Hey beauties!!
How are you?? Hope you all had an amazing weekend!! I was thinking the last few days to dye my hair light brown but  I have a problem. My skin is too white and I think that  it won’t look good. So I searched on the internet for natural ways to get tanned. I have heard about solarium that except from the fact that it is not natural, it is also not good for the skin and generally for health. A friend of mine , suggested me  spray tan , which is already known and popular among  girls and boys. Rumor has it that the result is not always good and it may be sometimes a  lot darker that you want or to not cover the whole body. Nevertheless I think that is is amazing for the summer because the body looks really thin and generally hides every imperfection.
What do you think? Have your tried Spray Tan??

Before Spray Tanning

  • Deodorants, make-up, perfumes and lotions should be avoided as these can act as a barrier and inhibit the development of your tan.
  • Thoroughly exfoliate with an exfoliating scrub or a loofa towel or mitt the night before.
  • Any hair removal should be done 24 hours prior to your tanning session.
  • Wear dark, loose fitting clothing to your appointment as tight clothing can rub the tan off in some areas.

After Spray Tanning

  • Do not shower or exercise for 8-10 hours after your tan. Shower with a body wash or shower gel (preferably SLS free). Bar soaps are not recommended. When you shower for the first time, you will see a brown residue wash off. This is the temporary bronzer or color guide that was applied.
  • When showering, use hand instead of washcloth or loofa or mitt. Pat dry with towel instead of rubbing. Do not shave with a dull razor.
  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize twice a day for maximum color retention. Starting about the third day, alternate with a tan extender. Hydrated skin makes your tan last longer and slows down the process of natural skin exfoliation. Alcohol based products are drying to the skin and can cause tan to fade quicker and unevenly.
  • Avoid anything that can exfoliate your skin such as long, hot baths, soaking in hot tubs, exposure to chlorinated water, hair removal products, acne products, masks and scrubs, skin renewing products or exfoliating gloves and sponges.
  • When swimming or soaking in a hot tub, use a thick waterproof sunscreen to help seal tan in. This will slow down the fading process.
  • Do not sit directly on leather or light colored seats or furniture after your tanning session. A towel is recommended.

    I live gradual tanners because its cheaper, you can do it yourself and you can get 2 shades darker. I am loving nivea sunkissed firming. I haven’t tried spray tanning simply because the maintenance is too much for me. Xx. Pip

    I’ve never tried, mostly because I’m with natural dark skin color. I’ve actually always dreamed of a pale white skin though…

    I like natural tanning but not to a great extent as I am already a bit dark.
    But spray tan seems to be a easier and faster way out.
