It is that time of the year again. The anticipation of summer has been bubbling inside us for months, waiting desperately for the summer glow that we will spend all summer trying to achieve. So what would you say if we told you that you could pull off a summer “tan” without actually being in the sun. Well here at Fashionista Chicago, we are going to tell you just that.
Looking forward to summer is easy for the most part. Changing up our wardrobe and trying new trends while working that summer glow from head to toe. Though for some of us, we dread not being able to acquire the glow without the worry of the effects of spending hours in the sun. Yes we all know SPF is important, but with all the new insight questioning if SPF really works to block the suns harmful rays, it is still a good idea to stay out of the sun as much as possible and not rely on a label that reads “SPF 80” (we all know nothing really works after SPF 30). So you may be asking how can you secure your summer glow this upcoming summer? Self-tanner. Well specifically spray tans that are naturally airbrushed onto the skin. Recently I talked to the owner of Golden Girl Chicago, a tanning salon that specializes in spray tans done by professionals taught in house directly. How cool is that! It is called Golden Girl University taught by the owner herself— Jenny who started her the company in 2011.
Golden Girl Chicago covets their spray tans that last for 7-9 days and each tan is designed based on the clients skin tone and type. Perfect for any event! The airbrush tans are arraigned with three different options including the original tan, express tan, and the mobile-tan with prices ranging from $45-85. Tanning packages can also be purchased for those who want a continuous summer glow. Not only is the Golden Girl tan alcohol, oil, and paraban free, you can organize a tanning party with all your girlfriends for a girl’s night out (GNO!). So why wait? Book your appointment today!
Another great way to get the flawless summer glow is to use self tanner at home. Here at Fashionista Chicago our favorite at home self-tanner is the ST. TROPEZ bronzing mouse that dries in up to sixty seconds and is paraban and sulfate free. How can bronzing at home get any better! You can purchase ST. TROPEZ from Sephora or any beauty supplies store from $18-42 depending on the size. ST. TROPEZ leaves you with a deep bronze tan without an orange or streaky mess. Do not forget to purchase the tan applicator mitt for $6.50 for a flawless finish.
P.S. Fashionistas. Make sure to moisturize and scrub before and after any tanning treatment. Wave the harmful sun-rays and tanning beds goodbye and welcome to a whole new realm of a sexy summer glow.
