What day is the best day to get your spray tan?

Everyone seems to want that perfect dark natural looking tan for events and parties. Spray tanning is a safe alternative to tanning in any form of UV light and it only takes minutes to get a sunless uvfree tan. However, one of the biggest misconceptions is that you can spray tan the same day of your event and have the best tan results possible, all though you will see an increase in tanning results, the best results come from pre-planning.

We wanted to take a quick moment to help you pick the best possible day to tan for your event, that way you can plan ahead and achieve the best tanning results..

Best Spray Tan Day for a Saturday Party


If your event is not until Saturday, Tuesday might be a little pre-mature for getting your spray tan if you want to maximize your color at the party.


If you schedule an appointment for a sunless spray tanning session on Wednesday you can count on seeing the best results on Thursday, or Friday depending if you tan early on Tuesday. If you had to choose an appointment Wednesday vs a Friday, I would recommend spray tanning on Wednesday for any Saturday event. To maintain your glow for the party, make sure to use moisturizer twice a day to extend the life of your spray tan.


Spray tanning on Thursday offers excellent results and almost doubles your event exposure ability. Early Thursday uvfree tanners will see excellent results on Saturday, if your appointment is later on Thursday it will give you the maximum dark tan for that Saturday event. Thursday is an optimal day for spray tanning.


All though many people believe that spray tanning late on Friday evening will generate the best spray tan results for a Saturday it actually would create the best results for Sunday morning and afternoon. If your event is on Sunday or Monday, spray tanning on Friday would be a good plan.


We understand that sometimes you have no choice but to spray tan on Saturday or the day of your event, we suggest getting the earliest appointment possible as you should shower BEFORE your event and you need to wait 8-10 hours before you can shower.

Closing Thoughts

There you have it, based on the information above it looks like your best days for achieving the best sunless tan for Saturday event is Thursday, followed by Wednesday or Friday options.

Keep in mind it’s always important to do a few things before you tan, and it’s even more important to take care of your spray tan so you get the best results and it breaks down evenly. Check out our after spray tan care for more information about extending the life of your uvfree tan.
