Spring Break is finally here! Beginning Spring Break with beautiful summer skin makes you feel like a rock star! So, what’s the safest way to do that?
By now you know that tanning is dangerous. But many people still do it. The question then is, do we care? If you could replace the same beautiful tan you get from the sun or tanning beds with a spray tan that looked just as good, would you do it? Before you answer, we want to remind you of the pros and cons of tanning.
Did you know that unless you are using an all-natural spray tan option, according to the FDA, there is no such thing as a safe tan? Any increase in skin pigment, called melanin, which causes the tan color change in your skin, is a sign of damage. Melanin is the same pigment that colors your hair, eyes, and skin. Increased production of melanin is your body’s attempt to protect the skin from further damage. Sure the darkened skin tone is beautiful and makes you feel sexy, but you know what isn’t so sexy?
Actinic or solar keratoses (raised, rough-textured, or scaly bumps that can progress into skin cancer)
Photokeratitis (eye damage)
Cataracts (eye damage)
All of these scary conditions can be brought on by a tan, whether you were basking in the sun, or napping in the tanning bed.
You still want that beautiful, sun-kissed skin though, right? And for some, they are ok with taking those risks. But what if you’re not ok with it? There is a safe and just as gorgeous alternative to sun-bathing. And like tanning beds, it’s available year-round.
Let’s be real. If you buy organic whenever possible, avoid processed foods and really do a great job at eating healthy, why wouldn’t you treat the outside of your body just as good as the inside? At Escape Day Spa, we’re concerned with your health just as much as bringing out the most beautiful you. Our all-natural, healthy sunless tanning system is a unique combination of organic, natural and hypo-allergenic ingredients that not only deliver the perfect spray tan, but build, nourish and hydrate the skin all at the same time.
We use the SunFX system which is not tested on animals, is vegan-friendly, nut & gluten-free, and is FREE from
- Mineral oils

We know what you’re thinking. But does it LOOK like a natural tan? Absolutely. People all over the world wouldn’t continue to use it if it didn’t. And we would be putting our reputation on the line if you walked out of here with a horrible fake-looking tan! We take beauty and your health very seriously. Please use sunscreen no matter what. A spray tan will not protect you from harmful UV rays. We also need to note that there are plenty of spray tan solutions out there that are produced using harmful chemicals and are NOT safe. So before you choose one, please do your homework!
Sooooo, next time you’re tempted to let the sun fry your skin, come see us first and test the quality and appearance of our spray tan system.
