Spray Tan vs Tanning Bed: Which is Right for You?
Who doesn’t love beautifully-bronzed skin all year long? We know we do. Winter in Washington can make achieving this sun-kissed look kind of tricky. Thankfully, there is more than one way to get that lovely chestnut tone we all envy.
In this post, we will cover two popular options for tanning: Spray Tan vs. Tanning Bed. The good news is, they both end up looking natural and gorgeous. Review the following pros and cons of each to see which makes the most sense for your skin, preferences, and budget.
This method is quick and easy, so it is the least time-consuming of the two options.
Your color will appear within 4-6 hours, so you can come in the same day you want to have your new glow.
Color options range from light to dark allowing you to choose the level and tone of tan you want, making a more natural overall skin shade.
This tanning option doesn’t last as long as the tanning bed method. You can expect it to begin wearing off after a week or so, due to the shedding of dead skin cells.
This method is best for colder weather months, since sweat, pool water, and salt water can strip the spray color.
Some people who choose to spray tan at home on their own can end up with uneven coloring. Thankfully we have top of the line equipment to guaranty even and natural looking results.
This tanning service has been a popular method since the 70s, so it is a time-tested and trusted procedure.
The outcome is natural because it replicates laying under the sun.
It offers a wide range of intensity so that you can get a subtle glow or a dark tone.
Because you can be unclothed in the bed, you will prevent tan lines that you usually get while tanning in the sun.
It isn’t quite free the way laying under the sun is.
It’s a good idea to take it slow and not rush the process so it may take multiple sessions to achieve your desired results
Higher-end beds are in significant demand, so you may have to be put on a waitlist, or schedule your appointment way in advance to make sure you get your tan before heading on vacation.
You may eventually want to try both to see which you prefer.
