  • I get them done for special occasions-you should probably get one done at a salon, by a specialist that does it by hand-she will know what color will work best for you...wear very loose fitting clothing and flip-flops, and try to schedule the appointment a little later in the day, so you can just go home afterwards and chill out the rest of the evening. Do not take a shower that evening-the longer you can let the tan process (a minimum of 8 hours is good), the better...I would say if the dance is Saturday, try to get it Thursday evening...good luck!!!!

  • I had one once. Advice - get it the done the day before. Mine lasted about 20 minutes. Wear loose clothes when you go.

  • exfoliate before you go. Jergans has a good lotion that a lot of my friends use that "build" a tan. I personally use Bare Essentials Faux Tan self tanner. It is awesome!

  • Im afraid to do it myself, and quiet frankly now being about 2 1/2 weeks from the date of event I dont think i have time to use that jergens lotion. Last year I tried the Target brand equvelant and didnt feel that it made me any darker at all.
