Tim and I had a big wedding event we attended this last weekend, and of course, I wanted to look my best all dressed up. So, after much deliberation, I decided to go get a spray tan. I was so worried I was going to turn orange, but was assured that I wouldn't.
I went to the local Suns Up Tanning Center (after a major exfoliation and shaving session in the shower) and learned the run-down as to what I was about to partake in. The cute little 17 year old tanning 'specialist' showed me all the moves I would be doing in this alien shower stall looking contraption, and all I could do was laugh thinking about the episode of Friends where Ross goes spray tanning.
All in all, everything went well. I did not turn orange, although I was a little concerned with my color within the first 24 hours, as you aren't supposed to shower. After I washed away the lingering solution, my faux tan looked very natural! I received a few compliments, too! For $30, it was worth the extra boost of confidence, but I am not sold on spray tanning on a regular basis. The color last about 5 days, and fades naturally, and I will definitly consider it again when need be, but for the most part, it still feels fake to me. I am just so thankful I didn't end up like Ross.
