The Perfect Spray Tan with Mobile Tanning Biz - A Perfect Shade

Fall is upon us and what better way to keep your summer glow is to get a spray tan? I loved this experience. Ali Martin of The Perfect Shade came to my house, set up a little tent in my bedroom so the dog and cat couldn’t wander through, and she sprayed me down, I kept bikini underwear on and a sports bra.

I stepped into the tent and Ali started carefully spraying me. She paid careful attention to me knees, elbows, shoulder blades, etc. I had exfoliated the day before, and did not put on any lotion or deodorant prior to her coming over. You need a scrubbed-up bod for spray tanning.

She had my front and carefully sprayed my neck, face, feet, hands and finger- everywhere was tan, and while the spray was a bit cold, the sensation quickly went away. 

Having the spray tan in the tent, in my room instead of out in a spa somewhere was awesome for me, because I didn’t have to get dressed and leave right after while I was still ‘drying.’

Super tan and ready for my night out (it was a Bon Jovi concert)
I got two different tans too- the first one was a standard tan, and the second one was amped up so that rain or water wouldn’t really disturb it for a few days. 

As I was headed out to see a concert, and it was pouring, so I was glad I elected for the stepped-up tan. Def the way to go for keeping your summer glow!

***- Ali just had a baby, so check back for her availability.
