Why? Because it’s dark and depressing outside yet I am boasting a beautiful tan. And I haven’t even left New York!
I’m leaving for Belize tomorrow (cannot WAIT) and I really didn’t want to feel like a spotlight on the beach (meaning bright and white). After not seeing sunshine for months, my skin was starting to take on a transparent-like quality. Not so sexy in a bikini.
So I searched around on yelp.com and came across Gotham Glow, a company which specializes in spray tans (no UV-light tanning beds for me, thank you very much). Everyone who reviewed Gotham Glow raved about Tamar, the owner, and her spray tanning skills, so I decided to give it a try.
And so we go back to the beginning: I look awesome. Tamar is fabulous, super sweet, and a pro. The entire process from beyond-pale to sunkissed took less than 10 minutes, and I didn’t feel at all embarrassed that I was standing in a tent naked (and even when she asked me to bend over with my butt in her face, it was all cool). Tamar uses a tan formula that she created herself, and the effect is too fabulous for words.
Maintenance is easy: no showering for 8 hours, first shower no soap. After that, you’re good to go and told to moisterize a lot. The tan lasts about a week. And again, I reiterate, it is COMPLETELY natural looking.
I cannot recommend Tamar at Gotham Glow enough. She even does house calls…so grab some girlfriends and have a spray tan party!
PS. As I mentioned, I’m headed to Belize for the next week–no blog posting. I’ll have pictures galore when I return!
