How To Get A Healthy, Natural Looking Tan

Most of us know the impact that getting a real tan from any type of UV light has. Sunlight and exposure to tanning beds have been proven to cause premature aging of the skin and increase the risk of skin cancer. In spite of the health ramifications, a tan has long been associated with good health.

It covers imperfections and gives the skin a radiant glow. While sunless tanning options have often fallen short at providing a natural-looking, even tan, airbrush tanning can be the answer to getting the quality results you want without the health risks associated with UV exposure. However, all tanning salons are not the same and you will need to know what to look for to get the best results from your tanning appointment.

Natural Looking Tan

Never judge a tanning salon by price alone. Everyone wants to get the best possible value, but that includes getting a quality tanning solution and application at any price. Some tanning salons use chemical sprays while others specialize in organic tanning solution. Compare salons to find a tanning solution that produces natural looking color while also providing important nutrients to your skin to make it healthy.

Not only does the tanning solution vary from one salon to the next, but so does the application method. There are some salons that offer modern airbrush tanning machines while others use skilled application artists to apply the solution manually. To get the best coverage, the manual application is best.

A skilled applicator can not only provide the best coverage but also use contouring to create an even more attractive result. Although everyone is not comfortable with the idea of attending a tanning appointment nude when they are being airbrushed by a real person, this is the most effective way to get an all-over tan that looks like you have been tanning on the Riviera.

If privacy is an issue, a tanning salon that makes house calls will provide you with the discretion you want. Instead of going to the salon, they will come to your office or home for your private tanning session. This service also makes it possible for you to turn a girl’s get-together into a tanning party that you can share with your closest friends.

Ask the salon what you need to do to prepare for your appointment. It isn’t unusual for tanning customers to need to take special precautions either for a specified time or for the lifetime of the tan in order to prevent it from fading. This detail could make a salon a good or poor choice for you. For instance, if you are getting tanned for a pool party, a solution that is removed with chlorine exposure isn’t a good idea. However, if you want to get a healthy glow for your wedding, the most important thing is to achieve the right color for your skin.

Always look online for reviews of the salon. Nothing is more telling about the results you can expect than the customer testimonials from others who have already tried the service.

Airbrushed tans can be the ideal way to transform your look for any special event or trip if you take the time to investigate which salon is the best choice for you.
