How to Match Your Tan To Your Vacation


The necessities for going to the beach:  hat, sunglasses, and flip flops.

There’s a lot to celebrate in 2021, and at the top of many people’s list is travel. Vacations to sunny destinations are set to spike in 2021. COVID-weary Americans are ready to escape. Your first step is to decide where you want to go: are you visiting family in Florida? Going further afield to St. Barths or the Greek Islands? Once you’ve settled on your destination, it’s time to visit a tanning salon. After all, no one wants to sit pool-side looking like a pale tourist.


Can I Really Match My Tan To My Vacation?

Yes! Many beds in tanning salons in Wenatchee have 3 settings Basic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean. This means you can hand-pick your tan. Instead of looking like you’ve just arrived at your tropical destination, it’ll appear like you’ve been there for weeks!


How to Care For Your Tan On Vacation


For Spray-Tanning:

It’s important to wait about 10-12 hours before washing off a spray-on tan in Wenatchee. You’ll also want to avoid scrubbing your body with soap. This will make your tan last longer. Once you’re on vacation, liberal use of sunblock is key. Sunscreen creates a barrier between your skin and the harshness of chlorine and salt-water. Chlorine does contain lightening properties that can remove skin cells and break down your tan, so you’ll need to be vigilant.


And you’ll want to hold off on shaving too much because it acts as an exfoliant and can remove your tan. And, of course, moisturizing is the name of the game after a day in the sun.


For A Sun-Bed:

Once you finish your sun-bed appointment in Wenatchee, you will want to keep your skin hydrated. Stay out of the shower for a few hours to allow the tanning cream to continue to penetrate your skin. It’s also essential to apply moisturizer to your skin daily before leaving and while on vacation to keep your island-glow tan supple and soft.

You should also avoid using a sunbed at a tanning salon for at least 48 hours in order to protect your skin. Also, your tan color will take a short time to develop, so don’t panic if you don’t look bronzed straight away. Once you’re in the sun, use sunblock as you would normally. Now that you have a base, a gorgeous, clean tan will soon be yours!
