    spray tan

    Advertisements
    Do any of you know what a good spray on tan would be that wont make you look like a umpa lumpa?
    I went to the beach the other day to get some sun, but im so white I just got burnt to the crisp and now its just peeling away. I cant get any color so im guessing a little spray tan will do the trick!

    the spraytans at palm beach tan are like $20 a pop. I used them when I was pregnant. Didn't look fake BUT you have to be careful with your fingers and feet and exfoliating first and if you get more than a few in a row (I had the unlimited package and was going waaay too much) you'll get nice and dark but I noticed that high friction areas (like where the seatbelt rubbed on my shoulder) were getting the tan worn off. If you're going to be getting a natural tan underneath it shouldn't be an issue because you won't need a bunch of spray ons.

    I usually never had that problem but when I was preggo I tried to stay out of the sun and not lay out tanning...... So i used Neutrogena Instant Bronzer. Im naturally tan so I use the Deep, 3 shades darker.
    Its not a spray though. Its a creme based but and I liked how it didnt leave me looking orange. I always wear gloves when applying........

    I'm not a tanner, but everyone I have talked to said that it's really better if you use the airbrush spray tan where someone is doing it all by hand vs. the room where you go in and it does it automatically. It's apparently more expensive, but lasts a bit longer and looks a heck of a lot better/natural.

    I have had nothing but bad experiences with spray tans...they left my hands and feet all weird and streaky...I would find someone who has had one done in your area and had a good experience!

    Have you tried the lotion from Wal-mart that gradually gives you a tan...that stuff works pretty good
