I second Friday. I’ve always been told to do spray tan 2 days before I needed to be tan. I’m having my e-pics this weekend too! Spray tan tomorrow for my Saturday shoot!

I have been getting a spray tan for a while, I always do it the day before the event because that’s when it is still the darkest as it does fade noticeably with each day. The day-of is too much because it is darker than it should be that day, but perfect after the shower the next day. This is getting a St. Tropez spray tan

I’ve heard it depends on the TYPE of spray tan you get. For instance, if you do the Mystic Tan type (where you go into a stand-up booth and the machine just does an overall spray), you should go the day before. I got that once and it was almost non-existant after a couple of days.

BUT if you do the spray tan where a person actually sprays you themselves, go on Friday. I’ve never had this kind, but apparently the color lasts longer and you don’t have to worry about it fading so quickly.

And just an FYI: I know a guy who always has the most gorgeous (and natural-looking) tan skin, and he uses Kate Somerville 360 Tanning Towelettes. I’ve heard from a few other people that these are much better than getting a spray tan, and apparently they will change your life. 🙂

I would recommend the day before (Saturday).  My tan always looks the best on day 2. All of the color sets in and the initial bronze hasn’t worn off.  For me, the intial bronzer really evens the whole tan out.  Hope this helps 🙂
