It's Pumpkin SZN! Here's how to avoid turning orange:

At Golden glo, we understand that there are few things less embarrassing than a bad spray tan, especially one that looks orange. In all efforts possible to achieve the perfect shade for your organic spray tan, here are some tips to avoid turning orange this pumpkin season!

1) Remember that you are what you eat.

Did you know that carrots, pumpkins and other orange foods can actually make your skin look orange? We were surprised, too!

According to dermatologist Melissa Piliang, MD, carotenemia is caused by having too much beta-carotene in your blood steam. “Eating too many beta-carotene filled foods can turn your skin an orangey color,” says Dr. Piliang.

Some of the most popular beta-carotene filled foods include:

  • Apricots.

  • Cantaloupe.

  • Carrots.

  • Mangoes.

  • Oranges.

  • Pumpkin.

  • Squash.

  • Sweet potatoes.

Carotenemia is the perfect example of too much of a good thing. Instead focus on a well-balanced diet with a variety of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats and complex carbs. If you notice any sort of discoloration of your skin and it doesn’t clear up within a few days, make an appointment to see your doctor. -Cleveland Clinic

2) Come prepared for your spray tan.

Make sure to shower, shave, exfoliate and come lotion and makeup-free! Your skin is the canvas, and your spray tan will come out more even the less you have on your skin, to begin with. Need more tips? Read our Spray Tan Prep Guide HERE!
