What About Spray Tanning?

[quote]Dear Sizzor Shak,

So I got out my spring and summer clothes last weekend. When I put on my favorite white shorts, I realized how pale I was! You couldn’t tell where the shorts ended and my legs began!

I have been trying to be more sun conscious, but I don’t know if it’s worth it. Self-tanning lotions always leave me looking orange and streaky, but if use the tanning bed I know that I am really hurting my skin. But I feel really unattractive without a tan, and I really hate it!

What should I do? I don’t want to feel this way all summer.

Dear Betty,

While the sun has a lot of positive benefits, there are definitely some negative effects and we commend your choice to be sun conscious. You should be proud of yourself!

At the same time, we understand your desire to have some color in your skin. And nowadays, there are better formulas of self-tanner that will make your skin bronze, not orange. The best we’ve found can be sprayed on, as opposed to rubbed on. This helps lessen any streaks and gives your tan a smoother finish.

Have you considered a professional air-brush tan? It is by far the highest quality and most natural looking tan available. Your spray tan is professionally applied in privacy by a trained technician and the process takes 5-10 minutes. As it is sprayed on, you will immediately notice a natural looking tan that will continue to develop over the next few hours, and lasts for 5-7 days.

So in your endeavor to go from Ms. White to Ms. Bronze, we suggest you give spray tan a try. It is definitely a good alternative to sunburn, skin cancer, and wrinkles. We think you’ll like it – and you’re legs will look great in those white shorts!
