Beauty Tip Tuesday: Faux-Tan

I didn't want Florida residents to think they saw a ghost when I arrived so had my very first spray tan right before my Miami vacation and I am happy to report a success!  A few tips to consider before you go under the gun:

1.) you should exfoliate your entire body before you go to the salon.  I used a loofah but next time I want to try those nifty exfoliating gloves!

2.)  Avoid moisturizing before you get a fake tan applied!  The chemical will adhere much better to dry, clean skin.

3.) Don't take a shower for at least 8 hours after your spray.

4.)  Follow up with a low-dose tanning lotion, like Jergen's Natural Glow  Lotion.  I also love Sisley's  self-tanner for the face (it's expensive but well worth it)!



  1. i'm going spray tanning today! its the best thing ever :)

  2. friends: just remember: spray tans don't protect our skin, so remember to wear your SPF! I wear spf 50 on face and 30 on my body.

  3. Where's the best place on the shoreline to get a spray tan?

  4. Hi Lynne! I went to Rituals in Guilford. I was pleased with the service. I suggest getting the level 1 tan if it's your first time or if you are fair skinned. Good luck!
