I took the advice of my friend Carrie and decided to get a spray tan for Mom 2.0. Not that I ever would have gone to a tanning booth…I mean, c’mon, my husband had cancer TWICE. Melanoma is not something to mess with . Trust me, waiting nearly six hours while your husband has his face operated on at the Cleveland Clinic is not fun. Being the one to have to go through that surgery—wondering if you are going to survive—and being left with the scars is even less fun.
You know what is fun, though? Walking into Airbrush Tanning in Cranston, as white as a ghost , and walking out like I just got back from a trip to Mexico. O.M.G. This place rocks. Seriously. If you have a an airbrush tanning place around you, go check it out…and if you live in RI, you must stop by this place.
I’ll admit, it’s a little strange at first having someone else see your business. Of course, you have the option of wearing your bathing suit, but since I am wearing a strapless dress this weekend, I went topless. I figured there’s nothing she hasn’t seen. She sprayed me by hand—let me dry—then sprayed me again. (I was thisclose to asking her if she could spray muscle definition in my arms and legs, but figured I shouldn’t push my luck.) The whole process took about 20 minutes and was worth EVERY PENNY of the $25 I spent. At the airport 6 people asked me if I just got back from vacation. Nice.
I’ve had the spray done once before at Airbrush Tanning, before I was to host an Oscar show. I loved the results that time as well. I used a mild soap in the shower every day and cocoa butter as lotion and my tan lasted about 10 days. Here’s to looking bronzed–cancer-free– into May!
Have you ever tried Airbrush tanning? What did you think?
