Spray Tans . . . — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Spray Tans . . .

Just a few days before we leave for our honeymoon we will more than likely be in our 2ww. Do you girls think that getting a spray tan would/could be harmfull?? I do know that regular UV tanning is out for anyone who may be pregnant! 

Re: Spray Tans . . .

  • I'm not 100% sure, But I wouldn't think so.... google could be your best friend on this question...
  • I love airbrush tans (not spray tans in the booth--they make you orange and streaky). They look natural and last a lil less than a week. I usually get one right before vacations or any major event I'm attending because I'm super pale and never tan. I just burn. Look up some recs (try your local board on the knot actually) before you go and see if you can have someone spray you who has been there a while. I usually get the owner of the salon where I go to do mine.

  • I'm sorry I am not sure what you mean??? I just wanted to know if you think the chemicals in the spray could be harmfull  throught your skin?
  • It's ok though!!! thanks for the advice :)

    I'm with you, airbrush tanning looks the best, the booths streak and are very uneven....

    I'm also with you on burning not tanning... I have super fair skin (comes with the red hair) lol

    Grr I know! I wish I had my father's skin tone. He's 100% Italian and get so dark in the summer. My sisters and I get NOTHING but sunburn. I almost WELCOME the burn bc it's a break from the WHITE. (Almost...)

    I know what you mean. I burn in the shade...

    For me I get freckles on my arms after I've been burned lol....

    I'm hopeful that someday all my freckles will connect and it will appear as though I have a tan...

  • I would think it be fine. Just do what you do :)
