If you are attending a wedding, party, or other special event or leaving for vacation, you should be spray tanned approximately 48 hours before the actual event. For weddings, we HIGHLY recommend a trial run at least two weeks before any big event to ensure you are happy with the outcome, you don’t have any sort of adverse reaction and to help you select the perfect date for your session. This allows time for the tan to fully activate and settle as well as allow time for at least two showers to remove bronzers that may be left on the skin so as not to stain your garment for the event.
