There are no pictures for this post – Just my honest opinion based on my experience.
Saturday I stepped outside my comfort zone and got my first ever air brush tan. Now, I had the kind before where you step into a booth, hit a button, follow a pattern and you get sprayed – usually missing some large, random piece of your body that you can’t cover. But this was stand naked (well almost – I had a disposable thong) in front of someone with a can of spray tan while they made sure to hit every inch of your body with glorious color. I was terribly embarrassed and worried about this appointment, but I must admit that I ended up being a little more embarrassed by my super white, can’t tan skin. So I did it!
In less than 15 minutes I went from glowing white to a glorious tan. It was amazing! When she was done, I was handed the spray hose and got to air dry myself off. I had to wait 8 hours before showering and then they recommended that I only rinse off – That was helpful and got the remaining sticky off – Then 24 hours I could use soap. I have to say – It was worth the 15 minutes of uncomfortable to look in the mirror and have a nice glow. The chemicals really dry your skin out, so that’s one of the things I’m learning to work with, but overall, I feel like the experience was worth it. I won’t blind half of the world when I go on vacation soon and need to put on a swimsuit or shorts, so I think 15 minutes a week is well worth my time – Next appointment is Friday night and I can’t wait!!!
