It’s Thursday so I’m sharing my newest favorite. This week I did something very out of my comfort zone, but was more than pleasantly surprised about the entire experience and can’t wait to do it again!

But spray tans have come so far! The results were impressive. This is how it turned out on my skin:
On Rachel’s very knowledgeable recommendation for my light complexion, she set me up in the Mystic Tan HD for my first spray tan and recommended trying the VersaSpa booth next time. There are add-ons for the spray shade. Add ons-are scent, bronzer, and accelerator. After choosing the “light” shade to start, I added the accelerator and bronzer. I skipped the scent. They were nice, but not my thing. If they turned out any stronger than the smell from outside the box, there would be no way I could handle any of them.
The first picture is an immediate before and after. Before I went into the booth and right after I came out and wiped off my hands. Already quite the difference on my arms. The second picture is my shoulders. You can faintly see my tan line from the beach in early June. The spray tan covered that up nicely. That’s a before and after washing off the formula after four hours. Rachel told me I could leave it on up to 8, so next time I want to leave it on longer. The last picture is also a before and after washing off at my leg line. It also gives you a good idea of how much darker I am than my natural tone.
These were the tips given to me that really helped:
- Exfoliate:: Done and done. I used a Baking soda and water paste and it worked great before hand.
- Skip Deodorant before:: It’s supposedly a blocker and could make it look weird
- Bring dark clothes:: Definitely good advice, since the bra I took was covered in the tanner when I got home.
- Use lots of the blocker lotion in the room:: This made a huge difference in how natural my hands and feet looked with the spray tan. I can tell where I didn’t do a great job with it on my feet.
Over all, besides eating some the first time the sprayer went over my face, I’m excited about how great it went. Next time I want to leave it on longer and make sure I use the nose plugs. I can definitely see the benefit of those. It was great to try something new and enjoy how I felt afterwards. It’s nice to find things that leave you feeling pampered and great about yourself. After these crazy past three weeks, it was relaxing to take even five minutes to make myself feel better.
