Spray Tan for Wedding Tips

It’s been raining all weekend (of course – Wimbledon has started!) and lots of my clients  in Berkshire and Oxfordshire have been asking me (Kim) about spray tanning for their upcoming special occasions and weddings.

Spray tan for weddings

I thought I would share some spray tan for wedding tips:

Don’t be scared – you don’t have to go all out tango’d with a spray tan these days..lots of celebs are big fans and have them religiously.

Sienna X recently got voted best spray tan for pale skins in Vogue – if you are naturally fair go for a lighter shade – 6% Touché de Soleil is fantastic for brides that just want a sun kissed glow.

Have a consultation with the therapist and work out the best shade for you.

Before and After Care is essential to a lasting glowing tan:

– Exfoliate well before your spray tan and wear loose dark clothing afterwards- and flip flops!

– If you are wearing a strapless dress make sure you don’t put tight straps on following the tan.

– Make sure to tell the therapist of any dry areas of skin you have.

– Don’t wear makeup deodorant or body moisturiser before the tan and don’t shave or wax less than 24 hours before your tan- this will result in dotty legs!

– Following your tan leave it on for the time you are told (normally 8-10 hours) shower off and pat dry gently.

– Moisturise daily afterwards.

– Tan your breasts


If the tan is for a wedding or special occasion have a trial and keep a note of what day you liked the tan best. I would recommend 2/3 days beforehand.

Make sure you let your makeup artist know you are having a spray tan as they may have to go a shade up with your foundation.

So enjoy the summer despite the rain and look bronzed and beautiful!!
