Yes, you can get a great airbrushed spray-tan in Burlington. And yes, you can get a great airbrushed spray-tan in Toronto. Not the kind of orange Jersey-reality-show tan you cringe at when you see the cover of Us Weekly. I mean a good one. The kind that looks like you just spent a week on a sun-kissed beach in the Bahamas.
Since I'm no advocate for baking yourself from the inside out in a tanning salon for weeks on end, I thought I'd share my preferred choice whenever I head on vacation: the airbrush spray tan!
I've traditionally gotten mine at one of the few places in Toronto that I know of that provides an excellent and natural looking spray tan: The Spa at The Windsor Arms. Air brushed by a trained professional, you can get as many 'coats' as you like, having total control over how dark you get. Their air-brush tanning is $50 for face & body, and I've never been disappointed. It's also one of the most beautiful and luxurious hotels in Toronto, so it's always nice to visit.
Locally, I just found out that Blair Lancaster Spa in Burlington also offers airbrush tanning too, with very organic ingredients that increase it's safety over tanning beds even more! At $45, it's a great deal.
For me, the best part of taking a winter vacation where you're already tanned is that you don't feel compelled to sit still in a beach chair building up a nice base since you already look like you've been there a week! That always frees me up to do all the other things the island has to offer without obsessing about getting a tan the whole time. Plus it is a huge destressor if it rains! Here are some great tips on prepping for an airbrush tan & a bit more info on how it works!
For those of you heading on vacation soon, have a wonderful safe trip! I will be here typing away with frozen fingers feeling insanely jealous...at least until I hop a plane myself in April!
