A single session is on average about $15, so lets see: To build up your tan safely: about 5 sessions, then two sessions per week to keep your tan that way. First month: 9 sessions (5 to build up tan+ 4 to maintain tan) at $15 each= $135. Subsequent months (8 sessions) =$120per month
What about spray tan? The beauty of this method is that if you spray tan regularly skin gets used to solution and then holds tan much longer. You will need about 3 sessions 5 days apart to get your skin to this stage (but you will be wonderfully brown right after very first session), after which (if you supplement your spray tan with tan extending products) you will only need a spray tanning session about every 2 weeks.
First month: 4 sessions (3 to get your skin used to solution+ 1 to maintain tan) at $50 each= $200 Subsequent months (2 sessions) =$100per month
So, after higher initial cost you will start saving money and definitely lots of time on trips to salon. Of course down track you will save yourself thousands and thousands of dollars on skin care products repairing sun damage.
Additionally, you will have a very low chance of developing skin cancer.
The above prices are a guide only, different salons will have different charges, but almost every salon will have packages, where you can save even more.
If spray tanning not only gives you a great tan, saves you from skin damage and cancer, but is also cheaper compared to other methods, does it not make sense to switch over ?
Go on. Do your skin a favour, and try spray tanning.
