I don't/cannot tan. Could someone give info about spray tans?

I am a red-haired, pale skinned woman who is phobic about skin cancer. Therefore, tanning beds are out. But we are going on a 'company-paid' vacation to a beachside location, & I don't want to look DEAD.
Please help me!!!

  • I have never done the spray in the booth but I like Neutrogina's spray tan x 3 shades which is really more like one after several applications. Don't do it in the wind!

  • I have done all the type of self and spray tans you can imagine. I really really like the spray tans where a person actually sprays you with an airbrush-type machine. They usually have this kind of thing at some tanning and beauty salons so I would look around for that. They color is not orange like a lot of spray/self tanning is, and a person can get your tan more even than a machine can. Many tanning salons now have the Mystic, which is the spray tan done by a machine with nozzels. I don't dislike this kind of spray tanning but it isn't as good as having a person do it. The color is usually more orangey looking and they usually only have 1 level to pick from, which doesn't look to great on fair skinned people. I don't recommend any self tanners. I have never used any that I liked. Regardless of what you choose, stick with the lightest level of tan since you have fair skin. All of the spray/self tanners usually last a week.

  • I use the Skin So Soft Spray Tan by Avon. Its really good! use code fsany for free direct delivery shipping. I've used and like both the spray version and the lotion version and both are really good but I personally prefer the spray. It looks so natural and you can choose for light skin tones :)
