What is the real price of a spray tan?

Written by Boshena Warzecha

Looking tanned is such a great feeling, isnít it?

There are three methods of getting that feeling. 1.Getting out intorepparttar sun. Great if you are young, and believe that all this hype about skin cancer has nothing to do with you. Goes hand in hand with high alcohol consumption, speeding and living on credit. It will catch up with you sooner than you think. 2.Solarium. Possibly a little more sensible solution if you take it easy, and build up your tan very gradually. Might lower your chances of getting skin cancer if you never burn, but if you tan regularly, it will definitely not save you from real bad skin damage and broken capillaries (very high temperatures boil blood in your capillaries- yuk). 3.Spray tan. A relative newcomer. It can take less than one minute to apply (in a booth), does not damage your skin in any way and saves you hours and hours on trips to and from solariums or lying onrepparttar 150399 beach.

Spray tanning seems to be such a great solution, so why doesnít everybody, who wants a tanned look, do it?

Judging fromrepparttar 150400 reactions that I encounter at my salon, it seems mainly to berepparttar 150401 cost. A single session can cost up to $70 in some places,repparttar 150402 average being about $50.

Isnít it cheaper to go torepparttar 150403 beach? If you are asking this question, chances are, you are still very young. Look at your mum. She is probably spending hundreds, and hundreds of dollars per year trying to reverserepparttar 150404 damage of frying onrepparttar 150405 beach in her youth. Unfortunately, our generation was told that getting suntan was healthy (whom can we sue for those lies?).

She also has to watch her skin very closely to make sure that she catches any cancerous changes early.

Solariums- a cheaper alternative? Apart from also causing serious skin damage long term, how much does it cost in money terms?
