HOW LONG: 30 Minutes
HOW MUCH: Dhs175
THE TREATMENT: With it being too hot to sunbathe during the summer, my English rose complexion had become somewhat ghost-like, so I had my fingers crossed that the spray tan at Sister’s beauty Lounge would give me back my glow. I was called by one of the salon’s therapists a few days before my treatment and told to exfoliate my whole body the night before my tan. This is to ensure that all dead skin is removed so the tan doesn’t become blotchy. I arrived at the salon and stripped down so my therapist could get to work! Stepping into a spaceship-like tanning dome I become slightly anxious about what the end result would be! My therapist made me get into some interesting positions while she sprayed away, making sure she didn’t miss a spot. She used St Tropez tanning products, which I hoped would give me a bronze hue like Kim Kardashian’s. After the spray was complete I stood in front of a fan for a few minutes while it dried. A bit of a chilly experience!
THE RESULTS: The morning after my treatment I took a shower to wash off the excess product. After this I was left with a bronzed glow, and absolutely no streaking! The tan lasted for about a week and fooled all my friends who thought I had been secretly sunbathing!
