Your Tanning Timeline for the Best Formal and Prom Tan

With prom and formal season just around the corner, it's time to elevate your look and embrace that sun-kissed glow that screams elegance and confidence. And who better to partner with than Loving Tan? So, grab your favourite self-tanner and let's dive into the ultimate formal tanning routine!

Formal and prom season is here, and it’s time to shine with a dark, natural-looking tan! The best accessory for your formal or prom season look is Loving Tan. We know how exciting these events are and that you will look back on these memories for years to come, so you deserve the best self-tan. Preparing for these events can be overwhelming, but with our comprehensive beauty checklist, you'll be ready from head to toe and have a flawless, natural-looking tan.


1 Week Before: Your Beauty Prep

With your event just approaching, it’s time to start your beauty and skincare preparations! 

Complete your beauty checklist

Are you planning on having a facial, lash extensions, a fresh manicure, or a hair makeover? Get those booked at least 72 hours before your tan session. You want to give your skin and nails breathing room before applying your tan.

Hair removal

If waxing is your go-to for silky, smooth skin, schedule that appointment a week before your event. This gives your pores enough time to cool and close, avoiding any tan seepage into your pores (we're talking about those pesky 'strawberry legs' no one wants!). If you're a last-minute shaver, aim for at least 24 hours before tanning to avoid any potential irritation.


2 Days Before: Tan-Prep Time

It’s time to start preparing for your tan! That means that it is time to remove any old or residual tan and prepare and prime your skin for your tan application; here’s how: 

Tanning Preparation Tips:

  • Use your Deluxe Tan Remover to remove old, residual tan. Apply it over your body 10 minutes before showering. 
  • Always exfoliate 24 hours before tanning with your Tan Removing & Skin Polishing Glove. Ensure that you do this the day before you apply your tan to ensure that your pores have enough time to cool and close. 
  • Ensure that you remove any shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and moisturiser residue from your skin with your Tan Removing & Skin Polishing Glove at the end of your shower. When you apply the tan, product residue left on your skin can leave water marks on your body, acting as barriers to the tan and preventing it from developing properly. 


1 Day Before: Tan Day

The excitement is building up as we're just one day away from your big event! It's time to glow with Loving Tan's fabulous self-tanning products. Select your favourite Loving Tan product for a natural-looking tan that complements your formal or prom dress. With various shades and self-tanning options, there is a product just for you and your special night! You can use our simple Shade Finder quiz to find which Loving Tan product is perfect for you! 

Self-tan application tips 

  • Apply moisturiser immediately before tanning your hands, wrists, elbows, feet, ankles, and knees to prevent your tan from overdeveloping in these drier skin areas.
  • Use a makeup brush to tan your hands and feet. Remove the tan with a makeup wipe after 30 minutes to stop your tan from overdevelopment.
  • Avoid excessive perspiration and contact with liquids while the tinted colour guide is on your skin during the development time.
  • Once the tinted colour guide is rinsed off, your tan will take 24 hours to fully develop. 
  • Avoid moisturiser and oils during the 24 hour development time as it acts as a barrier on your skin and will stop the tan from developing. 

Event Day: Radiate Confidence with Bronze Shimmer Luminous Cream

As you prepare for your formal, complete your look with Bronze Shimmer Luminous Cream. This luxurious cream adds a subtle shimmer to enhance your tan, leaving your skin glowing and radiant. Simply apply it using your Deluxe Applicator Mitt and let it dry for 60 seconds before getting dressed. Get ready to shine and steal the spotlight on your special night!
