November 21st, 2012 by Adore

It is important to remember that different skin types require different strengths of spray tan solution, so it is essential to stick to spray tan colours that help give you a nice natural glow. Let’s take a look at the different skin types and the spray tan colours:

Very light or white ‘celtic’ skin type

 

This is the palest type of skin and easily burns, gets freckled and blistered. Generally, people with this skin type have blond or red hair with blue eyes. The skin on areas that are unexposed appears reddish. The spray tan solution for this skin type is the lightest one. If you have this skin type, you should avoid medium or dark spray tan colours.

Light or light skinned European skin type

 

This skin type is found in people with blond to medium brown hair as well as green, blue or grey eyes. The skin on unexposed areas is pale and people with this skin type are prone to freckles although not as much as those with skin type one. The best spray tan solution for this skin type is light but those with darker skin types in this group can successfully use medium spray tan colours.

Light intermediate or dark skinned European or olive skin type

 

People with this skin type generally have dark hair with eyes that are green, light brown or occasionally blue. This skin type is light with a beige shade on unexposed areas and easily goes brown. If you have this skin type, you will look good in a spray tan solution of any depth with little chance of turning orange.

Dark intermediate

 

People with this skin type have black or dark brown hair as well as dark brown eyes. The skin on unexposed areas is light brown. If you have this skin type, then any shades of spray tan colours are good for you. If you would like to achieve a bronze statue look, you should even out the skin tone as this will result in a golden finish. This skin type only requires a little bit of tan or else it can turn yellowish or even a bit grey.

Dark or brown

 

This is the darkest skin type, so using a spray tan solution should help you achieve an enhanced skin tone or even to even out your skin colour.
