Tanning After Waxing: Dos and Don’ts

Planning to get a wax and a spray tan close together in the near future? Before you make an appointment, be sure to read up on a few important dos and don’ts for tanning after waxing.

Were you planning to spray tan soon after waxing your legs or another part of your body? That would be a tanning do. Waxing your body before tanning is a great way to exfoliate your skin which is an extremely important step to take to do before getting a tan. Why is this? Because tanning solution sticks much better to skin that’s been exfoliated than not. By getting a wax you are killing two birds with one stone – taking care of the exfoliation process as well as ridding yourself of unwanted body hair. Basically, you will be getting a longer lasting and more striking tan by exfoliating first.


However getting a spray tan the same day as waxing is a serious don’t. You will want to give your skin about 24 hours to recover before having your tan done to avoid an uneven look. Giving you skin time to bounce back from bumps and irritation without waiting long enough that the exfoliation has worn off will allow you to get the perfectly even and totally bronzed look you crave. When you get a spray tan directly after waxing, say in the same appointment time, you will end up with a tan that looks a bit patchy and uneven – far from ideal. In other words, just don’t do it!

No matter what you do, you will want to be sure that your skin is exfoliated before getting that spray tan done. If you aren’t planning to get a wax shortly before your tanning session, there are a couple of other ways to get that exfoliation done. One method is scrubbing with a body sponge or brush in the bath. This removes dead skin cells and exposes the freshest skin cells which tanning color sticks to the easiest and the longest. A wash cloth or exfoliating body wash will also do the trick – be sure to look at the bottle and check to make sure that you’re getting one with exfoliating beads. However, the easiest method is simply to schedule your waxing appointment within a day of your tanning appointment to get the most out of your for the littlest amount of effort and stress.

Spray Tanning for Engagement Photos

When my clients ask, “Should I get a spray tan for my engagement photos?”, my answer is…….YES!


A spray tan is a great idea; as a tan will always make you look thinner, and accentuate your muscles and definition. It also will make your teeth look whiter, eyes look brighter and help cover up many skin imperfections.

Make sure to let you spray tan artist know what you are getting your spray tan for!


You want your spray tan to be LIGHT and NATURAL. We just want to add a nice glow that will really add a touch of warmth to their skin tone.  If you are someone who is use to getting spray tans regularly, than this one might seem a bit lighter than your normal one, but that is okay! Again we are going for a natural look. If you are naturally more fair skinned it is okay to get sprayed! A natural glow can be achieved on your skin as well.


Don’t forget about the face! Make sure that your face has a natural spray. Two of the biggest disasters I see in photos are always related to the face. If you spray your face very dark and then apply very heavy makeup it can make it look orange or much darker than the rest of your body.

The other problem is when someone gets a spray tan but does not use a little darker makeup to match. This results in a tan body but a washed out paler face and that contrast does not look very good. So remember if you are doing your own makeup buy a shade or so darker or use some bronzer.


I think that a natural and refreshing look can easily be achieved if you want it! So I say go for it! Don’t be nervous! I promise it will be a great addition to your photo shoot!

Spray Tanning with Acne

Can spray tanning help mask your acne?

Acne is never fun to deal with especially the more severe it gets. We’ve all been through it and, although it may seem difficult, with most people it eventually subsides with little effect. So what can you do to cover it up? Is spray tanning the right solution?

Of course when we talk about tanning solutions for acne we aren’t referring to UV based tanning. This includes both bed tanning and traditional tanning under the sun; Both of which cause trauma to the skin and increase melanoma leading to cancer risks.

One of the main bi-products of acne is dead skin – The bane of tanning solutions! Spray tanning solutions contain the chemical DHA which can change the color of dead skin cells. Typically, dead skin tends to hang around pimples which can actually darken that area when spray tanning is applied. This means dark spots on your face!

So what’s the solution? Exfoliating! The more you exfoliate in the little time before your spray tan, the better chance you have of an even tan across your face. It’s also good to explain your situation to your spray tanning professional as most have tips to ensure even coating across acne areas. An easy trick is to apply thin coats to ensure proper toning of the skin and prevent spotting. It may take longer but will definitely produce the results you’re looking for.

Don’t worry about tanning solutions causing more acne. With proper exfoliation you’ll remove dead skin cells and prevent escalating your acne after your next spray tan.

Can You Swim With A Spray Tan?

Uh oh. You just got a gorgeous, glistening spray tan but now it’s time to hit the beach. If you’re worried your spray tan will come out a streaky, orange mess after taking a dip, fear not.  The answer is yes…if you’re careful.

If you’re the safe sun type (and I hope you are), then you’ve likely experimented with spray tanning. Spray tans are an easy, safe alternative to tanning beds, and definitely a healthier alternative to rubbing yourself with baby oil and spending hours in direct sunlight. However, sunless tanning requires some upkeep, which is necessary to help it stay on through sweaty gym sessions and yes, sunny pool days.

You can swim with a spray tan, but chlorine does have lightening properties and strips away skin cells which will break down your tan more quickly. To make your tan last longer you need to moisturize and re-apply self-tanner more frequently. If you are swimming in the ocean the same rules apply because salt water will dry out your skin and cause your tan to fade more quickly.

As if we needed another reason to stay moisturized! The moral of the story, ladies and gents: Along with proper exfoliation before your spray tan for even coverage, consistently applying moisturizer can help protect and extend your tan.
