I know, I know, you want to be a beautiful bronzed goddess for your senior session, but running out and getting spray-tanned the day before your session could end in a blotchy, streaky nightmare. If you are determined to be faux-tanned for your session, here are a few details that could save your skin (literally):
- Don’t get a spray tan within 3 days of your session. Your color needs time to develop & settle. Lightly exfoliate your skin 48 hours after your spray session, and then rub in plenty of moisturizers to help it set.
- Exfoliate and scrub your wrists, ankles, knees, and knuckles religiously if you get a spray tan. These body parts can collect extra tanner and make you look dirty. After scrubbing, hydrate these areas with a heavy moisturizer.
- Consider using a slow-build self-tanner the month before your session. These daily moisturizers with gradual tanning solution build a bronze glow over time that won’t look blotchy or streaky like spray tans can. First, the secret to using these options is to layer them over a base lotion.
