Keep Your Glow: Best DFW Spray Tan Salons

August 14, 2012 5:00 AM

Before tanning salons, the only way to achieve that sun kissed look on your skin was to bake in the sun for hours, hoping you wouldn’t emerge from your beach towel looking like a lobster. Today there are other options for achieving that natural glow on your skin without exposing it to harmful UV rays. Spray tanning has grown in popularity over the years, not only because it poses less risk of damage to your skin, but also because it provides the same results as a few days of sun tanning does in just a matter of minutes. If you want the beautiful glow without the health risk, visit these five great tanning salons in the Dallas- Fort Worth area.

Fort Worth, TX 76107

Located in the heart of the Cultural District in downtown Fort Worth, Perfect Glow Tanning Salon uses some of the best techniques for airbrushing. The California Airbrush Tan System, which gives you that perfect California sun kiss glow, is one of this salon’s specialties. Perfect Glow also offers airbrush tanning in the My Myst tan booth by Mystic Tan. This is an open booth,  which eliminates that closed-in feeling you may have while in traditional tanning booths.

Airbrush tanning is quick, easy, and affordable and will last for days. For maximum stay of your airbrush tan, avoid wearing make-up, perfumes, lotions or any product that will create a barrier on your skin prior to your tanning session. Also avoid water for eight to 12 hours after your tanning session. As always, be sure to keep your skin moisturized after you get your airbrush tan. Happy tanning!
