Deciding how long before an event to wait to self-tan can have a big impact on how you look and feel when the big day arrives. The timeline for how fast a self-tan develops is different for everyone. But there are some things you can control that will help you decide when is the right time and what is the right product for you.
Event Deadline: 3-5 Days
Self-tanners are designed to be used in the convenience of your own home to give you a gradual, natural-looking tan that will turn heads. Giving yourself a few days or more to use a self-tanning lotion is a good idea for allowing the full tan to develop. This is especially important if you want a very dark tan. With Mystic Tan Gradual Tan, you don’t have to worry about an orange glow or streaks. The gradual tan lotion gives you the control on how dark you want your tan to be. If you’re looking for more color, faster – apply morning and at night!
Event Deadline: 1-2 Days
Get called out of town on a business meeting last minute? Taking a spontaneous girls trip to Vegas for the weekend? If you want an instant tan that’s truly instant, then a self-tanning lotion or spray with bronzer is the right choice. Bronzer is a cosmetic coloring that appears on the skin to give an instantly golden brown look. This tan will last up to a week and you get instant results! Apply bronzer products with the Applicator Mitt so you won’t accidentally get too much color on the palm of your hands.
If you’re in a really big hurry, you can also opt for a professional in-salon spray tan from your local salon with our Mystic Tan automated spray booths. It only takes three minutes until you step out with the gorgeous tan you’re looking for.
