​Sunless Tanning Tips for a Beautiful Bridal Glow

Posted by Sandy D. on

Unfortunately, not all brides are blessed with naturally beautiful and bronzed skin. And, while some brides can pull off pale skin with a white or ivory wedding dress, others simply look washed out.

Luckily, today’s brides have several options when it comes to safe and sunless tanning for their wedding day. From tinted moisturizer to hand-applied spray, here’s how to get your skin picture-perfect and glowing:

1. Use tinted moisturizer to gradually build a base tan

Bronzing moisturizers, such as the Jergens Natural Glow collection, are formulated to be used over a long period of time for a natural looking bronze. Using these products a few days to a few weeks prior to your wedding will provide you with subtle color and supple, moisturized wedding day skin.

2. Avoid tanning spray booths prior to your wedding

If at all possible, avoid commercial and one-size-fits-all self-tanning booths that can give you an orange glow or uneven coverage (unless you’ve had success with them before). A better alternative is scheduling an appointment with an airbrush tanning consultant (see below!).

3. Try airbrush tanning for a picture-perfect wedding day glow

With airbrush spray tanning, a trained technician will personally apply a longer-lasting and full-coverage tan based on your unique skin color and preferences. Often these consultants are available to come directly to your home to perform their services, a great bonus for the hectic days prior to your wedding.

4. Take proper care of your sunless tan to keep it looking fresh

No matter how you decide to get your skin glowing, you’ll want to take the proper precautions to ensure your look carries into your wedding day. Know that your tan will likely fade or rub off (so allow at least a day or two prior to your wedding festivities for it to ‘set’), and liberally apply moisturizer to extend the life of your tan.

Happy planning!
