Spray Tan: Before and After

  I love summer...fresh fruit, pretty flowers, summer dresses, flip flops and tans.  That last one I was not exactly blessed with.  I am pretty pale and always have been.  I tried tanning beds for while and got that beautiful bronze glow but I worried about the damage I was doing to my skin.  I didn't want to end up looking like Magda one day in the future.
  So last week I went out a limb and got a spray tan at Air-Tan in Broad Ripple.  But before I went I needed to weigh the pros and cons...
  • Back from Barbados look with spending any vacation money
  • No skin damage
  • Instant gratification color

  • Unsure of how it would look (fake, orange, streaky, etc)
  • Standing semi nude in front of a complete stranger

  Well, as you can tell there were more pros than cons so I went for it.  I was sure to take before and after pics.



  The after pic was taken within a half hour of leaving Air-Tan and the color grew even darker.  I really looked like I had been on vacation.  When I went back to work I had more than one person ask if I had gotten away for the weekend.  My faux golden goddess look had fooled everyone!  SUCCESS :)
