Pale, olive skin with yellow undertones. That’s me.
I wanted dark, bronze, beautiful skin so I began to tan as a teen.
When I first started, I did it the old fashioned way – I baked in the sun for hours with no sunblock. Then I discovered the tanning bed so I went from sweating for hours outdoors to an indoor weird smelling cocoon in an attempt to darken my skin.
They both worked well! I had the dark skin I wanted so I was happy, but I didn’t know I was literally risking my life by exposing myself to UVA/UVB rays which cause skin cancer.
Luckily I didn’t get it, but I do have the scars that are caused by sun BURN. A tan is a burn healing. The side effect of the look I achieved are dark freckles, uneven skin and hyperpigmentation on my face. Real attractive…
If I only knew then, what I know now. If I had a dollar for every time I said that I’d be rich!
I met D’lany, owner of Madd Tan, and talked to her about her airbrush tanning technique. I looked at before and after photos and decided to give it a try.
I love the look! I’m bronze and golden, not orange and streaky!
The airbrush tan gives me the color I desire with absolutely no risk! Of course we’ve all seen the BAD spray tan and it’s orange participant’s.
The color is custom made for every client, barrier cream is applied to areas that tend to get darker, (knees/elbows), and in a matter of minutes, voila! I look like I spent a month on the beach!
This color is courtesy of Madd Tan!
No matter where you go to get your tan, make sure, you exfoliate, the product is FDA approved and whoever is spraying you uses a color that won’t make you look like you’re ready to be cast as an extra in Willy Wonka 2.
I asked D’lany for pricing and specials and she graciously submitted this!
