Your wedding Tan
You have taken the time and painstaking details to make sure your dress, venue, and other details are perfect. But if you look pale, there is no question about it: a nice, well-applied tan will give you that perfect glow!
How does a Bridal Spray Tan work?
Trial Spray Tan
A bride should book a trial spray tan. Ideal is at least a month in advance. This way, you can test the color in advance.
2/3 days before your wedding
Have your spray tan two days before your wedding day to ensure you look your best. Spray tans take approximately 4-8 hours to completely develop and often look their best on the second day.
Before your Spray Tan
Scrub with special attention to your elbows, knees, heels and hands! A spray tan will fade quicker on dry, rough skin which could result in a streaky look. No parfum, deodorant, moisturizer or bodylotion before your spray tan.
Enjoy your wedding day
Your wedding day has arrived and you have a natural, golden glow without looking orange or too dark.
The Perfect Wedding Tan - Brides Magazine UK
I've always fallen into the 'English Rose' category, with a pale complexion that doesn't take too well to the sunshine. Our wedding falls at the end of the summer, but I know that my skin will look just as pasty as it does now after the winter months. My skin and the sun aren't good friends.
Thankfully, I've discovered the new Vani-T Velocity organic spray tan. Kylie Minogue, Nicole Sherzinger and Jennifer Aniston are all fans and having given this treatment a whirl, I know that it is one of the best fake tans around.
The Velocity spray blend is special because as well as resulting in the perfect tan, it's designed to improve the condition of your skin. It contains aloe Vera extract and is rich in Vitamin E so after the session, my skin felt noticeably more hydrated with the fine lines on my face less prominent than before.
Compared to other spray tans, it's a speedy process with the tan being applied and washed off within 3 hours (great when you're juggling last minute wedmin before the Big Day). Expect the bronzed effect to look perfect for around 4 days before fading naturally, oh, and lots of compliments on your wedding day.
How to get that perfect bridal tan - Herald Ireland
There's a reason they call it The Big Day: it's the big day! You are getting married! You are also going to be posing for photographs that you will be looking at for the rest of your life. As important as the venue, the seating plan, the band v DJ debate - oh, yeah, and the groom - looking her best is a bride's top priority.
And the winner is... the Vani-T tan. "The best thing about this tan has to be the fact that you can wash it off after a couple of hours," says Shirley. "It's just very convenient especially for the busy bride!"
I waited for two hours and a bit, and then hopped in the shower. Elaine had recommended washing off with exfoliating gloves, using a non-astringent shower gel. I didn't have any so I used a Dermalogica cleanser, which seemed like a smart compromise.
I had a very bad moment after drying off, as I felt like I'd scrubbed all the colour off myself. The whole process seemed counterintuitive. But, trust the professionals: Elaine said that the tan continues to develop overnight, and so it did.
Frankly, it's gorgeous, and you don't have to be a bride to enjoy its excellent effect.
