If you’ve ever looked at, like, a single photo of me on this blog, then you know I’m not exactly gifted in the not-looking-like-a-vampire department [still pissed I missed the casting call for Twilight: Breaking Dawn].
No but really, I am seriously pale, and for the most part, I’ve learned to love and embrace my fair skin! But of course with summertime comes a bajillion hot and tan bods walking around, with me in the middle, looking like a walking case of Vitamin D-deficiency. Thank you, SPF 75 for doing your job. And not letting in any bronze whatsoever [#sad].
We’ve all heard the awful statistics surrounding skin cancer + tanning beds, so like sHELL am I going to lay in one of those to get my summer tan on. So when Sunless, Inc. reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in trying out a spray tan, I jumped on the opportunity– this would be my first!
Let me tell you, I downright enjoyed the thing! I visited Boston’s Tan Works in the Financial District to try out a VersaSpa booth. Like a total newb, I had no idea what I was doing, but their tanning expert walked me through the few basic steps. The whole process, from undressing and prepping to walking out the door, took MAYBE ten minutes, but that actual spray tan was only a couple. I could not believe how easy + painless it was. And by painless I mean not as embarrassing as I pictured.
You have three choices for darkness levels– I went with Level 1, because honestly, would anyone even recognize me tanner than this? Here’s your disclaimer though: when I walked out, I was a little disappointed, thinking I could have afforded to go darker. But what I didn’t realize:: the tan darkens over the next few hours. When I woke up the next morning, it was the exact shade I was looking for.
I’m on Day 5 of my tan, and while it has faded, I still definitely have a sunkissed glow. There are booths all over the country; click here to find one near you.
