Here at Be Waxed And Tanned, we are experts at all things to do with tanning. Here is a breakdown of the common skin types we come across and our recommendations for your spray tan.
Skin Type: White
The beauties with this type of skin usually have freckles and very light or red hair. This skin is very prone to burning when exposed to the sun.
Tanning Recommendation: Always use the lightest available spray tan. If you try and apply a darker colour you may go orange.
Skin Type: Light Skin
People with this lovely skin type are also prone to getting sunburnt but they will tan eventually in the sun, more so than the transparent white skin beauties. The natural hair colour for these light skinned lovelies can range from light brown to blonde and red.
Tanning Recommendation: Stick with a light or light medium colour. If you tend to have a slightly darker natural tan, then you may try a medium spray tan.
Skin Type: Medium Light or Dark-Skinned European
This skin type will tan easily when exposed to sunlight and appears to not burn as readily as our first two skin types. People with this type of skin mostly (but not always) have dark hair and brown eyes.
Tanning Recommendation: Depending on how dark the person wants to look, most shades of spray tan will look great on these lucky people.
Skin Type: Medium Dark
This skin type will respond to large amounts of sunlight by producing quite a dark tan.
Tanning Recommendation: Depending on how dark the person wants to look, most shades of spray tan will work.
Skin Type: Dark or Brown Skin
Even though it is already a dark shade, this type of skin can darken even further when exposed to prolonged periods of sunlight.
Tanning Recommendation: Any colour will work fine and we would recommend a shade to give this gorgeous skin a lovely glow or even out tone.
Skin Type: Very Dark or Black Skin
This spectacular skin is least likely to burn in moderate sun exposure.
Tanning Recommendation: We would recommend using the darkest spray tan colour to even out skin tone and give a natural glow.
