Does this "Tan" protect you from UV rays like a real tan does?

I did it a couple of years ago at a place in town and turned out very...well, orange. LOL. I looked like an Oompa Loompa for a week. Not to mention once it starts to peel and fade away and you look like you have a skin disease. I say embrace your paleness. Spray tans are not a good look on most people.

Full body spray tan for $30 at Radiant Reflections @ the Delta. Never had the spray tan, but always a good experience there :)


**i haven't done it, and probably wouldn't from the sounds of peiislandgirl's experience!

have you used any self tanners you can get at Shoppers? i think they'd be more natural looking. ask the beauty desk if they have any samples of some to try out on your legs before a purchase!

I have used the self tanning lotions in the past, and just can never get it to look even enough, was thinking that the spray option would at least be nice and even tone. I just this past week tried the Jergens moisturizer that has a hint of tanner in it, thinking that maybe I could get it a bit "even-er" as there isn't as much active ingredient in it, but still I can't seem to get it right :-(
I was wanting to try to spray stuff this summer too, to see how it turns out, then I will know whether I want to have it done before my wedding next summer. I may contact the place in the Delta to see if they are able to customise the colour. I don't want a deep tan, definitely don't want oompa loompa, I am just wanting a little bit of colour to tone down the blinding whiteness I have going on. Likely what I want most people would call "normal" but it would be a tan for me! haha

my daughters friend got the spray tan done at radiant reflections at the delta and it turned out wonderful....buuuuuuuuut.....it will only last a short while as it will wash away little by little....i was told it was a good thing if you have the money to maintain it or if you just need it right away.....such as going down south or something

no worries about turning orange as they tell you that will only happen if you try to tan darker then what you would naturally go.

My opinion, i think its gross the way some of the girls layer it on. They didnt have it 30 years ago. Girls looked great back then.

if you get this be careful! you're not allowed to sweat for the first little bit. i remember when i was in jr. high a girl got one and she didn't realize she couldn't play her trumpet with the tan.. she ended up with a white ring around her mouth and had to get it done all over again.

Thirty years ago they laid in the sun for hours with baby oil.

I have had it a few times at Radiant Reflections and had good results. I never tan, am very pale, so got the light which worked well with my complexion. I followed Gerry's instructions to moisturize the first 3 days then exfoliate after that and it stayed with me a good 6 days. It is great for a special occasion and hiding cellulite somewhat!

To the poster who asked if it protects against UV Rays, no it doesn't and neither does a real tan. A real tan is merely skin damage and does not protect your skin from further damage.

What does it cost to have a six day tan?

I find pale smooth skin sensual in a woman. Like french women in the renaissance days. My opinion but I am likely not alone in my view.

No you are not alone betamaxman, my better half is also a true red head and is very pale . Every spring whenever the weather warms up she is out and gets sun on her legs and arms , little by little she tans up . This is definitely not a fast tan but the only way she has found that works for her.

I wish that would work for me! My arms kinda sometimes look like they get a little colour as my freckles get darker, but my legs seem to have no melanin whatsoever! they are either blindingly white, or lobster red! lol

Redhead27, this is our sun cycle:
burn
blister
peel
freckle
Repeat.

I am a big fan of sunscreen now, but it doesn't stop the freckles from popping.

I wouldn't say I'm a "true" redhead, but definitely a light auburn brown, and this cycle sucks. Especially the freckles. I go to the beach one day and come back with hundreds of new freckles. I have a theory that if I get enough of them, it will just look like a tan...
I haven't gotten a bad burn though in about 5 years. Diligent with the sunscreen.
