Sunny Side of the Sunless Experience

According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime and those who first use a tanning bed before age 35 increase their risk for melanoma by 75 percent. So, it is natural that the sunless tanning market continues to grow as others begin to understand the harmful effects of UV exposure.

While selecting an organic sunless studio that places health at front of mind – you may find the advantages go beyond a "golden" glow.

Quality in Service

Rather than standing in front of an automated machine - get results that fit your specific needs by choosing to have your tan applied by an industry professional. Also, seek a salon or studio that values customer service. While sunless consultants are thoroughly trained on the latest techniques and procedures - it helps fight the fear knowing that someone is there to guide you from start to finish. To ensure a more relaxed experience, make sure to take full advantage of your initial consultation, don't be afraid to ask questions and most importantly, be specific about the results you are looking to achieve. For example, the tan you desire for your Hawaiian getaway may be very different from the subtle glow you need for a New England New Year's Eve party!

As you undress to your comfort level, whether that be your birthday suit, a bikini or yoga pants and a tank top – a qualified professional will delicately airbrush each part of your body accompanied by detailed instructions to ensure a natural looking, even application.

More Than a Tan

Some people who undergo an airbrush tan have one goal in mind- a bronzed glow without putting in hours baking in the sun, but others know the secret. Contouring, which is the act of darkening areas that want to be hidden, is a technique that only comes with a custom tan. What can be considered as an art form- shading the right areas can help clients appear thinner in minutes! For example, if you'd like to see your stomach appear thinner – airbrush professionals can shade the sides of your waist to make it physically appear smaller.

If you are looking to minimize the appearance of imperfections on your skin– sunless tanning can help! Clients frequently come in to eliminate the sight of sunspots, tan lines, stretch marks, varicose veins and even cellulite. Some sunless solutions include actual anti-aging ingredients that will help to permanently reduce the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite and leave your skin looking more youthful even after the tan fades!

Although sunless tanning has gained the majority of its popularity due to its important health benefits, the beauty benefits are amazing too! Look slimmer and younger, and give your confidence a big boost in a matter of minutes- When you are happier with the way you look, you are happier overall!
