I went today to get my spray tan for New Years. I am still going once per week to maintain my color. I swear by Versa Spa. In my town it's located at Sun Tan City. I get medium clear spray and love it. My tips for spray tanning are the following:
1. Go about 3 to 5 days before your event
2. Put the barrier cream all over your hands and bottoms of your feet. I mean rub the cream on your hands like hand lotion. My hands still get color this way. If I don't I get really dark knuckles and hands.
3. I wipe my face off with a makeup wipe about 2 1/2 hours after I get my spray tan. My face also tans easily and this helps to make my make up look nice as well.
Happy tanning :)
