A self-tan that looks picture perfect on some areas of the skin and stippled on others is fairly common when our gym lovers want to look tan and stay healthy all at the same time. I mean, haven't we all experienced the tan that wears off in that diamond shape around the inner-elbows, at the tops of the inner arms and between the breasts and that dreaded scaly look on the legs, arms and neck that sets in. A patchy tan is not only caused by the skin becoming dehydrated, or by s
Sunless Tan The application of either a self-tan product, or spray tan to your body. When applied, DHA (the active ingredient in sunless tanning products) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden-brown color. Your skin begins to darken 2-8 hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun. DHA The active ingredient most often used in all s
During the booth tan, you'll be alone inside and voice prompts will instruct you how to stand as automated jets mist you from head to toe. If you opt for an airbrush tan, a trained technician will be with you and spray you using a handheld device. Although both will result in a natural, even color, there are some subtle differences that might lead you to choose one over the other:

Be sure the temp is cool enough where you won't be sweating and in a humid atmosphere. Heat or Hot conditions can cause pores to open and your sunless tan to transfer onto white shirt or shorts. Also, be sure to get two showers in before wearing white in order to wash off the bronzers (cosmetic color) off the skin so it won't bleed
Amazing fake tan - tick, but why aren't my legs tanning? Or worst still - why do I have brown dots in my pores?

Why, because your skin is constantly regenerating and legs often wear tights, and tights often rub, and rubbing often removes tan. You see?
Also - be careful if you are shaving. A fake tan wil

SPRAY TANS & TATTOOS A few people have asked me if spray tanning will discolor their tattoos. A spray tan only effects the outer layer of skin and tattoos go quite a bit deeper. While lighter colors on tattoos may darken up just a bit from spray tanning, its only temporary and none of my clients with tattoos have ever mentioned it discoloring their tattoos. UV tanning, on the other hand, has been shown to fade tattoos faster. I always suggest to my clients that if they’re con
This statue in Bowling Green Park of a girl facing off against the famous Wall Street Charging Bull came as a surprise this morning as the sun rises on Wall Street and clearly sends a powerful message through our country.
