Take your next step with confidence by getting bridal-ready at iTAN. While summer is typically wedding season for most brides, some are still prepping for the walk down the aisle. Every bride knows that the pre-wedding beauty routine is essential to looking and feeling her best. Here are a few tips on how to get ready for the big day. After all, when the wedding bells ring, all eyes are on you.
How soon should you start bed tanning before the big day?
Since sun tanning is a gradual process, we recommend beginning your routine about 8 to 12 weeks prior to your wedding day. Come in for a session once every 2-3 days leading up to the big day for best results.
Modern brides can take advantage of all the benefits of iTAN SMART Beds featuring skin-sensing technology that calculates a customized tanning session based on the pigment in your skin. This technology allows you to gradually build a sunkissed, natural glow while virtually eliminating the chance of overexposure. When tanning SMART, brides can also enjoy the luxuries of aroma therapy, aqua mist and climate control for maximum relaxation.
How much time prior to the wedding should you spray tan?
If you’re looking for a golden glow to compliment your bridal look, it’s best to start a spray tan trial in order to try the different types of spray tans as well as the variety of shades.
The ideal time to start the trial process is during your pre-wedding festivities like your bridal shower, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner. You’ll be able to decide which spray tan and shade you like best before your big day. It’s also a good time for you to determine how you want your skin tone to look wearing white.
Come in for a spray session 1-2 days prior to your wedding day so you’ll have plenty of time to shower, shave and get ready before the big day. Ask your tanning consultant for a customized recommendation based on your bronze beauty goals. We also recommend utilizing iTAN’s clear spray tanning solution to prevent any unwanted smudges on your beautiful dress.
Should you Versa or Mystic?
Both the VersaSpa and Mystic Tan will leave you with a natural color, but each type of spray tan equipment utilizes a different solution. Trying both during your pre-wedding festivities will help you determine which is right for you.
With the Mystic Tan, you have the ability to customize your color with enhancers, bronzers and aromas. It delivers a flawless, golden glow instantly.
The VersaSpa offers light, medium, dark and clear solution. Before your spray tan, use a prep that stabilizes your pH balance, moisturizes and preps your skin. It will leave your skin looking even and flawless. After your spray tan, use the post-tan moisturizer to help fill in your color and leave you smelling fabulous.
Which spa services are great to alleviate pre-wedding stress?
The wedding prep process can be a stressful time, so take a moment to de-stress with the Hydration Station and FIT Bodywrap.
The Hydration Station is a combination of infused steam & infrared technology that improves the quality of your skin while you escape in an aroma steam experience, perfect after running around and taking care of that lengthy wedding checklist.
The FIT Bodywrap is a far infrared body wrap that promotes weight management, and detoxification. The FIT Bodywrap also delivers a fully customizable and relaxing experience to take you away from the wedding planning chaos.
