    Hey Everyone,

     

    Being a very fair skinned gal Im trying to figure out how to give my body a nice glow before stepping into that white dress. Problem is I dont want to tan in the states before going down, as it will be mostly faded by the time the wedding comes around (not to mention Id have to avoid the sand/pool). Has anyone heard of any airbrush/spray tan facilities in the cancun area either in a hotel or something easy??? Anyone ever used a company down there???

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!

    I don't know about Cancun salons, but I did manage a tanning salon for 4 years so I know a little about spray tans.  How many days are you going to be in Cancun before your wedding?  A spray tan normally lasts about 7-10 days depending on how dry your skin is (the drier your skin the longer it lasts).  You also do NOT have to avoid the pool/ sand.  You can swim with a spray tan.  But obviously, it will fade faster than if you were not swimming. I recommend looking into somewhere that either uses a Norvell spray tan solution or has the Versaspa booth system.  Those systems give you a more natural bronze glow instead of a orangeish glow that the Mystic tan can give.  If you are only going to be in Cancun a couple of days before the wedding, I recommend doing it at home the day before you leave and making you "extra" dark so you still have great color when you get married.

     

    I hope this helps a bit! :)

    Also- staying moisturized and hydrated after your spray tan will help prolong the color as well! :)

        I read on a photographers website NOT to use spray tan's for your wedding.  It said it makes your skin look's orange in your photo's.  So if you are going to, try it at home first and be sure that you are comfortable with the way you look in the next day's.  Don't try anything right before the wedding!  Good luck!
