Bridal Spray Tans

We specialize in spray tanning brides in the Brainerd Lakes Area.

Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! There are so many things to plan for your wedding day that it is easy to miss a few things. One of them you don’t want to miss is your spray tan.  

Here are a few spray tanning tips to help you for your upcoming big day!

Trial Run

Our spray tanning studio offers all our brides a bridal package discount. We usually recommend to do your custom spray tan trial 3-6 weeks in advance before your wedding. This ensures enough time in between in case there is ever an issue you would have enough time for another trial run.

Wedding Day Tan

We recommend you spray tan 2-3 days before your wedding. If you are getting married on a Saturday you would come in on a Wednesday or Thursday. We are mobile so if you have 3 or more who would like a spray tan we can come to you.  Please get manicures, pedicures, and any waxing done prior to your spray tan. Your spray tan should be one of your last appointments.

Custom Spray Tans

We customize our spray tans to fit everyone’s skin tone. Since everyone has different skin tones you would be getting a spray tan suited for yourself not a “one size fits all.” Getting a custom organic based spray tan is going to ensure a natural looking result in your wedding photos. Airbrush Spray Tanning technicians also control the amount of solution on the hands, feet and other areas that need to appear more natural.

Keeping Your Dress Clear of Spray Tan!

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that their spray tan doesn’t come off inside of your dress. There is always a possibility. Just like your wedding dress can get dirty during the reception and especially the bottom of your dress there is a chance some spray tan color will get on your wedding dress. The dry cleansers should have no problem getting the color off with the spray tanning solution we use.  

Aftercare has a lot to do with what you see on the inside of your dress. We know those last few days leading up to your wedding are very busy so doing a quick rinse might be all you do but that does not cut it! You need to make sure you do a good rinse off. What tends to come off on clothes is the instant bronzer which completely washes away once you shower. If you do not rinse off good enough (Especially under your arms) there is a chance a small amount can get off in the inside of your dress. This is also why we recommend 2-3 days before to make sure you rinse off enough.

Also on those hot days feel free to baby powder your underarms! If you put a little bit on before you slip into your dress this will also help it from coming off inside.

Here are some pre/post spray tanning steps….that are vital to help your extend your tan and make you look your best

Before Your Appointment:

  • The day of your spray tan or the night before, shower & exfoliate from head to toe.
    (Shower no less than 2 hours before your appointment)
  • When exfoliating give extra attention to dry areas like knees, lower legs and ankles. 
  • Once you have had your last shower before your appointment NO lotions or oils can be applied to the skin.
  • Have all body hair waxed or shaved that you normally remove taken off 24 hours before you get your spray tan.
  • Bringing loose clothes to wear home would be most comfortable for the 30 minutes while your spray tan is processing. 
  • Avoid using Dial, Irish Spring, Lever 2000, or in-shower moisturizers/oils. These products can neutralize the DHA  bronzing action within the skin.
  • Do not shave your legs within 2 hours of appointment.

During Your Appointment:

  • Wear dark colored bathing suit or underwear.
  • Pull hair back and off of neck.
  • Exfoliating products available for purchase
  • Do not wear wool clothing to your appt.

After Your Appointment:

  • Wait a minimum of 12 (24 if you want to last longer) hours before showering.(Unless Rapid Tan wait 3 hrs.) Warm water rinse – use hands. No soap. The longer you wait, the  darker your tan will be. Unless you had the Accelerated Tan
  • Do Not use any body wash your first shower
  • Do not apply lotions until after your first shower.
  • Avoid any heavy sweating or exposure to other forms of moisture that will cause your color to streak.
  • When you have showered moisturize daily to keep your tan lasting longer.
  • Avoid exfoliating and use minimal body wash during the first 5 days of your spray tan.
  • Avoid Shaving for at least 24 hours after your spray tan.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight waistbands or leggings can rub your tan away.
  • Makeup: Avoid foundation or anything that requires rubbing of your face. Eye liner and mascara are fine.
  • Use tan-extending moisturizer. Spray Tan artist sells and only recommends professional products for optimum results.
  • Use sulfate-free body wash/shower gel.
  • Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!!! 
  • When tan wears off, use a good exfoliator to remove remainder from your skin. There are parts of your body that are naturally slower to exfoliate: Back, knees, under arms, etc.

We provide mobile tanning  also with a minimum of 3 to travel 

I’ll be posting more spray tanning facts in the weeks to come…so stay tuned
