    Ok so there's no way to get around it - I am PALE. With freckles. And I love the way I look with a Mystic tan. However, it just streaks right off once you get into the pool or sweat. We're going down to PV on a Tues. and the wedding is on a Sunday. My sister swears that she knows people who get the "real" spray on tans (by a person) and they don't come off like the Mystic tans do, but she admitted that it probably wouldn't last that long...

    SO does anyone know where to get a personal spray on tan in PV?? Any experience at all with this?

    If not I guess I'm just gonna have to load up on Jergen's like crazy...

    P.S. To prove to y'all just how pale I am - in my siggy pic I have a Mystic Tan!

      I bet if any photographers chime in, they will say to please no fake tan.. it doesn't look good in photos AND it isn't you. I remember Juan Carlos telling us all how horrible it shows in photos, even if it looks ok in person.

      I know what you mean about being pale.. I'm super pale too but that's me.. that's how I look 365 days a year (well except when I miss a spot with the SPF and I'm red!) why would I want my wedding photos to make me look like someone I'm not?

      If you are having something done I would do it before you leave for the wedding. Can you imagine how horrible it would be to have a bad job done while down there? There's no time to fix and it would probably be something you'd regret forever. That's just my opinion anyhow.

        Yeah, I definitely get what you're saying... that's why I wanted to check and see if anyone has already had this done by chance..? It wouldn't even need to be a big difference... I just know my photographer's use of color (BRILLIANT!) and am so scared of my freckles popping out like crazy!!!

          Well, you're in luck, as it isn't an option - we don't have fake tan sprayers ... there is one tanning bed at Plaza Caracol - but I've gone there several times asking if they have the fake tanning yet and they always say "todavia no" (not yet ... which really means, nope, not ever .

                JL, I'm sure you will get a nice base tan if you are arriving on Tues and wedding's not til Sun. just use sunblock and do it slowly. I love being tan, it just feels so much better.

                  Hi JaimeLynne,

                  I was curious to whether or not you had come to a decision regarding this...

                  Have you tried the spray tan via a person? If so, how did you like it and how well did it wear off?

                  I am very pale myself and normally have some color with daily build-a-tan lotions. It's not a lot of color - but it really makes a difference by giving my skin a nice even color - ya know? I'm not trying to go 3-4 shades darker.

                  I know you can get the spray tans done in a lighter shades for us pale ladies so it looks more natural. I was considering doing this for my boudoir photo's since I'll be baring a lot of skin! HAHA I guess I should ask my photographer - I thought it would be fine for this since it's indoor lighting and not outdoor natural light...

                    Okay I'm super pale - probably way more than you! I've done the spray tan and the mystic. The spray tan by a person looks great when you are out and about - but in photos - I looked so orange because of how pale I really am. I would recommend waiting till the honeymoon so your wedding pics don't turn out orange.

                    Good luck!

                      JL-

                      I agree with someone else. After arriving on Tuesday and being in the sun you will have a nice tan even with 30spf.

                      I just went to my BF's wedding in St. John's and she has the same problem, but by her wedding she had a little color and it looked great. Just make sure you wear a bathing suit that doesn't show your lines.

                      Best
