01 Apr Applying Fake Tan For Your Wedding Day
One common consideration for many brides to be is whether or not to fake tan before their big day.
No-one wants to end up a nasty shade of orange, so this can put many brides off of trying any kind of tan on themselves.
The thing with fake tan is if you do it right then the results can be brilliant.
But if you are not used to applying it then you might want to take a look at our guide to applying fake tan for your wedding day.
Always match to your own skin tone
Everyone’s skin is different, so it is important that you figure out not only which product is going to be right for your skin, but also the tone too.
It is a good idea to check out a variety of brands and see what finishes they have to offer.
You should also practice and test out the fake tan long before your wedding day, as this will make sure that it isn’t going to be the wrong shade and leave you with the horror of an orange shade.
Remember to exfoliate
One of the key parts of any fake tan application process is that you need to make sure that you exfoliate.
This is because fake tan will cling to absolutely every bit of dry skin that you have over your body and this will not only cause the colour to clump (which looks horrible) but will also have an impact on how the overall colour can look too.
Avoid getting it anywhere near your hair
Fake tan will not only stick to your skin, but it can also get on your hair too.
If you are dark haired, this might not be too much of an issue, but, if you are fair and blonde, then an unsightly orange patch is never going to be a good idea.
If you do want to protect your hair, then you need to make sure that you tie your hair back and to protect it even further, pop on a shower cap.
Apply plenty of moisturiser
When you have applied fake tan your skin can feel a little dehydrated and lacklustre, this means that it is important to apply as much moisturiser as you can.
Use a good quality product as this will make sure that your skin absorbs as much as possible and will leave you feeling ready to face the world.
Of course, if you are worried about getting it right, then you might want to speak to a professional about applying a fake tan.
Not only can they make sure that you have the best tan possible, but also that you know exactly how to look after your skin before, during and after.
