In this article, we will talk about a few tips and tricks to help you achieve that perfect, natural-looking tan on your wedding day.

 

What is a base tan?

                                     

One of the most important things to remember before you plan your tanning sessions is that the longer time you spend on getting the tan, the better you tan and the more natural it looks. This is called base tan, a crucial step. Essentially a base tan is achieved through short but regular tanning sessions, mostly via sunbeds, and letting the skin achieve that natural-looking tan over some time. It is usually recommended to start tanning sessions 6-8 weeks before your wedding day to get that even, natural-looking tan. Building a base tan allows the skin to develop a resistance to the sun and acts as a mild SPF.
