Dont worry! I did spray tan on a saturday for my boudoir pics and it was gone by Tuesday! Just get a loofah and exfoliate every shower and you will be fine I promise!

Try using a lemon scrub too! The acid in lemon will strip away the colour!!

Also, lube yourself up with mineral oil. Let sit on skin for 20 mins, then soak in a very warm bath with epsom salts and scrub away. the oil will break down the colour.

Dont worry, you will get rid of that awful spray tan.

Lemon juice helps too!! And a loofah isn’t working well enough, my lady told me to use a pumice stone on my hands if they got all messed up (which thanks to my inpatience, they did). That combination seemed to lighten up my mistakes! And I did it on a Wednesday for a Saturday event, too!

@FutureMrs1:  All the other posters had good advice! It will fade, spray tans really don’t last for more than a couple days. 

I think we all need to take note of this – DO NOT try something new (new haircut, new facial care system, new hair color, new products) right before your wedding. It’s Murphy’s Law – whatever can go wrong, will.

As far as spray tans go, I’ve had them, and they’ve turned out fabulous. The key is to find an experienced person who does it by HAND. They can adjust the strength by standing further away, or using a lighter hand. They can also contour. My friend does them this way, using a gun, and everyone is always looking bronzed and gorgeous when they leave.

I managed tanning salon for 3 years and I have a few tricks for when these things happen.

1) Do what everyone said and exfoliate like crazy!  It will fade (though most likley will not be gone completely)

2) Sounds strange but windex or lemon will remove it.  Just take a dry wash cloth, spray it with windex or sqeezee lemon on it and the rub it in circular motions over areas that you want to fade.  You will notice the color start to come off on the towel and it will help it fade much quicker.

3) Call every tanning salon in the area and ask if the sell Mystic Tan Vanish (it works on all type of spray tans) This will also remove the solution much quicker!

Was it a booth that you went in or did you have someone hand spray you??  I would also call the salon and see what tips or tricks they recommend with that particular type of spray tan to help it fade.  I am sure your not that first person this has happened to and they should be able to help you out!

Hope this helps!!!  Let us know if they work for you!

No more advice than what everyone else said, but just wanted to give you a *hug*.  Scrub away and tell us if it went away!  GOOD LUCK!

Grab a loofah and exfoliate, repeat, it will dim the more you work at it, also try vinegar or lemon juice, the acids break it down faster.
