QUOTE (bluebird @ Mar 24 2004, 01:09 AM)
can I ask how much it is to have done. I can't go to solariums as I am prone to skin cancer, this may be an alternative.

Depends if you want full or half body done.

Half which is lower legs, upper body, back etc cost me $25 and I think full was about $40 or something but places differ in costs so probably worth checking out a few to see how different they are in price.

The lady I called is $30 for full body and she comes to you. I am getting it tomorrow night... so wish me luck.
I will let you all know Friday if I look like a freak.

Personally, I think it's stupid to dye your skin with fake tan, especially if you're naturally fair skinned!!

Me, I'm going to be scrubbing all over to remove any mild tan marks from summer, and then proudly walking down the aisle with my glowing white skin.

A tan is a sign of SKIN DAMAGE not health, and the latest research out just this week shows that UVA rays (previously considered safe, and often used in larger amounts by solariums) contributes to the gene mutations that lead to skin cancers. I can't understand why it's suddenly cool to paint yourself to look like those sun-fried idiots you see on the beaches (whose skin, when you get closer, resembles hardened leather!)

If being creamy pale was good enough for Audrey Hepburn, Marylin Monroe and Judy Garland (to mention a tiny handful) then it's good enough for me. I'm not going to waste my money just because a bunch of cosmetic companies have found a new way to make money.

I see so many women walking along with their fake tan lines around their hairlines, and it just makes me laugh.

Don't feel pressured to have a fake tan done because everyone else is - if you're naturally very fair skinned, that's just as beautiful as someone who has naturally darker skin smile.gif

I know what Adam would say if I came home sporting a fake tan! tongue.gif

(don't even get me started on hair colour - I had foils done, and never again)

Good for you Sarah, but I love my fake tan, it is safe and it makes me feel great... but I agree about the leather skin from the sun baking, I am too fair to do that I would fry!!
I am getting it done tonight... I hope it looks good. I am excited, even if there was supposed to be five of us girls getting it and now there will only be two dry.gif
Don't you hate it when people are all up for something and cry poor the day of the thing your supposed to be doing! It's not like I haven't been excited about it or anything!!

Yep Debbie, I know exactly what you mean.

I can understand why some ppl like the tans. While I have ivory skin and nearly black hair, my sister has very olive skin and gold-brown hair (if it wasn't for the fact that we sound the same and have the same facial features, you'd think we weren't sisters)

Anyway, she's prone to skin problems like excema, and as a result, her skin is blotchy, and she sometimes uses a fake tan to even it out. My other sister is as white as me, and has even lighter hair, but uses a fake tan and it doesn't look that good. <shakes head>

I'm going to get my nails done (If I can stop biting them just long enough to get acrylics put on) and my hair done nicely, and instead of getting a spray on tan, I think I might go to a beauty spa and get an all-over scrub and massage <bliss!!>

Sarah, I would love to get a massage, but I am worried about them touching two places... my feet and my butt!!! Craig and I both hate our feet being touched. I have always been like it.

I think some people use fake tan wrong and that looks ridiculous... like orange feet, orange hands, brown legs and white rest of body...
I mix my fake tan with moisturiser and that way it is not as strong and it blends in a lot better.

I am disappointed the girls let me down, but what can I do.. I am still gald I am going ahead with the spray tan.. and I am leaving work in 15 mins, so soon I will be brown or orange???????

Speak to you about it tomorrow!!!

Debbie

Hi Girls,

I'm interested in getting a spray on tan also but I am interested to know what exfoliaters and moisturisers you use? I know I should exfoliate on a regular basis but I don't. What brands are good?

I have a great moisturiser that I use on my face but I'm unsure about a moisturiser for the whole body. What do you use and reccommend?

I'm interested in your opinions on which ones you use.

Opinions please, you can email me on jdallask@yahoo.com

Thanks
Jill

Hi!

I had a spray on tan done once.. wear loose clothes to get there, and they tell you not to put your bra on to leave.. or at least the people who did mine told me not to...

You have to stand around for about 5 - 10 minutes after its done to let it 'set' so that you dont get too much on your clothes..

Then you need to sleep on it, then the next morning when you wake up and freak out because you are so black (thats right, not brown) you jump in the shower and most of it washes off.. it leaves you with a beautiful golden looking color, however if you are concerned that it will leave you looking unnatural, perhaps have it done at least 4 days before? THe tan usually last about 10 days so you should almost be in the tail end of it on the Big Day.

I got spray tan done 3 days before my engagement party and it ended up to be a bit of a disaster! The colour came out of the pours on my chest so i had black dots everywhere!! I had bought a strapless top for the party and nearly thought i couldn't wear it! Luckily the dots faded slightly and luckily we had the lights off at the party so no-one noticed that i looked like a freak!!
Also..................it dyed my toe nails orange and i looked like i was fungus infected!! It has been 4 weeks since i got it done and their still orange.

Yeah I had it done for our engagement party, I got it done in a Salon (PM me for the details if you want) and yeah it does rub stlitly but not much, you are told to wear loose fitting clothes and I wore a G-string and bikini top so there was very little rubbing. It does look a little unnatural if you are pale and then all of a sudden people see you witha fantastic tan but other wise it looks fine, if you use fake tan regularly I think you will look fine. If you have the spray done a good tip is to have it atleast 24 hours before whatever your doing it for, in your case your wedding and then you wedding dress will be fine and there wont be any rub off onto your dress, if there is it will be very little and it does wash out. But I think it's great. cool.gif

Speaking of fake tans, I was just looking on an accessories/makeup site, and found a road test of different DIY tan products on the market. If anyone is interested in the link, PM me, and I'll send it to you.

Its good that the days are gone of sunburnt brides!
