How to Get the Best Tan While on Vacation

Posted on June 23rd, 2017

Glow on the go, #iTANfan! If you’re finally taking that much-needed two-week vacation, there’s no reason to compromise your tan. Keep your tan while traveling with our top travel hacks for maintaining your glow while on vacation.

Here are a few things you can’t skip while packing:

1. First thing’s first, don’t skip that spray tan! A common myth is that you cannot get a tan while having a spray tan, and that’s absolutely incorrect. You can get a suntan when your skin has been recently spray tanned.

We recommend getting a spray tan, whether it’s Mystic, Versa or Airbrush, before your vacation so you can jump start your glow! The spray tan will fade after five to seven days, and reveal your vacation glow. Don’t forget to pack your favorite Continuous Spray and Face Mousse from California Tan SPF while you’re outdoors, and you’ll be good to go!

2. Lean in for a Mystic Kyss! In just three minutes and two standing positions, you can achieve your desired, even, full-body tan in any of our iTAN salons offering the all-new Mystic Kiss. Plus, you don’t have to wait for the spray booth to heat up in the Mystic Kyss.

3. For an instant tan…
Our favorite options for an instant tan are the Mystic Self-Tan Lotion with Bronzer and the VersaSpa Bronzing Mist.

The Mystic Self-Tan Lotion with Bronzer adds a burst of cosmetic color while gradually building a lasting tan. You can also pick from multiple shades of bronzers to enhance your skin tone!

The VersaSpa Bronzing Mist provides an instant bronze tone through its delicate micro-mist that provides head-to-toe color for an even and gorgeous tan.

4. For a gradual tan…
If you’re looking to build your tan in about five days to a week, we recommend Mystic Gradual Tan Lotion or VersaSpa Gradual Tanning Spa Butter. Both lotions help build a natural looking tan while hydrating your skin.

5. For a tan on the beach…
Feel free to use any of our indoor tanning lotions while out on vacation! Our indoor tanning lotions do not provide SPF protection, but they’re safe to use when combined with SPF products. For additional color, pack a lotion that has DHA so you can build both a natural glow and cosmetic color at the same time.
