im having a spray tan at a salon next week(treat from my dad),ive never had one before.they said about exfoliating-what with? and they said wear as much or as little as want-is pants and strapless bra ok?
I exfoliate using a mixture of olive oil and sugar, but you can buy a regular exfoliator from the shop if you prefer. They say not to moisturise beforehand, but I have very dry skin, so use a a small amount of body lotion after I've exfoliated and showered the night before. Have never had any prblems. Don't use deoderant, though.
Wear a g-string and either go braless or wear the lightest material bra you've got (underwiring and lacy bits are more likely to leave marks). Wear dark colours - a tee shirt that you can pull n easily and leggings or jersey trousers, or a pull on dress. Wear flip flops.
Are you getting a lift home afterwards? Best if you can.
Not sure what to recommend in terms of a good exfoliator but I would only wear tiny pants and go bra-less, tbh. Beauty therapists have seen it all before and you will get a better coverage and not have to worry about "tan lines"
Its been a while since I had a spray tan but I seem to recall it lasting for about 5 days ?
thanks oil and sugar sounds nice-just rub it in and wash off -yes?im not sure i can do g-string(im not sure if i still have any)-she might laugh at my bum. dont think i can get a lift home afterwards-i think dh will be working.
thanks-im quite excited about being bronzed!
will it come off on sheets that night?its just all our bedding is white or cream.i could use a throw for the night.
Just a warning if you do have to get a bus or anything... the way they work (or the ones I have had) is that they develop for between 8 to 12 hrs and then you rinse them off to reveal a lovely bronze glow. However, when they are on your skin developing they go REALLY dark - like literally brown.I had to go out when I was mid-development and everyone was very !!!
You will be quite dark when you leave the salon BTW, and yes it mighht come off on your sheets - it will definately come off on your clothes a bit so like MrsMattie said wear something dark - and loose.
FWIW i've been to different salons and been given paper knickers. I assume you'd be able to keep yours on though if you want though. And they have seen it all before - one girl I went to was joking that she wanted to set up some hooks for women to hang their norks on to avoid white marks - so I took that to mean she was saying I had saggy boobs!
Well they might all be different so dont worry too much. But mine were quite dark he he . Sorry that's not helpful... i'm like ghosty white normally though so that didnt help for the shock factor. And you might smell a bit... biscuity? I spent a lot of money on having a salon tan and it was really quite smelly.
Sorry I do just want to prepare you for the worst... you can always just stick a hat on and not hang around the school gates if it is bad?
Anyway, it will be well worth it when you have a lovely golden tan the next day you will feel really healthy and summery so well worth any short-term trauma!!
