Get Your Tan On

Get your spray tan on that is! For residents in the Bar Harbor area looking for some color after the winter season, a spray tan is an excellent option. As we continue to learn more about the dangers of tanning beds and overexposure to the sun, the popularity of the traditional tanning methods seems to be decreasing.

Spray tans offer a safe bronze and actually contain ingredients to help improve the skin’s condition. At Serenity Garden Massage & Tans, locals and vacationers can expect only the best spray tan service.

We use an anti-aging, organic formula that is a “spa treatment” of its own.  Our solution is aloe based and comprised of nourishing ingredients such as vitamins A, D, and E, wheat amino acids, and white and green tea leaf extract. The two significant anti-aging ingredients are COQ10, a powerful antioxidant that helps to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and Matrixyl, which helps to increase the elasticity and reduction of wrinkles in the skin. The spray tan offers a beautiful bronze tan as well as a moisturizing skin treatment.

Dani Ray has been trained to apply your balanced spray tan with perfectly even coverage in just 15 minutes.  She does recommend however, that you anticipate a half an hour for the entire session. The session begins with a brief description of how to care for your tan.  An average spray tan lasts 7-10 days. The life of the tan can be shortened or extended based on the maintenance of your tan.  It is best to think “natural”.

  • You need to apply a moisturizer once a day, but that moisturizer should not contain perfumes.

  • Avoid straight oils on the skin; it will remove your tan.

  • Pat the skin rather than rub.  

In essence, be kind to your skin and continue this ritual long after your tan has diminished. Prior to spray tanning, it is recommended that you exfoliate your skin.  For maximum results, absolutely no makeup or lotions should be applied to the skin the day of the tanning session. At Serenity Garden Massage & Tans, we apply a pre-conditioning PH spray, an additional skin conditioner and moisturizer.  Your skin may be dry upon arrival but it will feel baby soft upon departure.

Ready to get your tan on? If you are living in the Bar Harbor area or if you are planning a spring or summer visit, contact Serenity Garden Massage & Tans today! Your beautiful bronze and healthier skin is just minutes away. You have nothing to lose but the harsh effects of tanning beds and too much sun exposure.
