Why You Should Tan During Winter

Sub-zero temperatures, snow, and ice don’t immediately come to mind when one thinks of a “sun-kissed glow” although, arguably “skier’s tan” is a real thing… but not likely the look most are going for.

During the winter, much of our skin remains covered up under ponchos, turtlenecks, and assorted North Face accessories. So why, you might ask, would anyone feel compelled to get an airbrush tan in January? If you need some rationale, here are 3 pretty darn good reasons to come out of hibernation for an appointment:

Brunches, parties, and vacays… oh my!

On the occasions that you find yourself peeling off the parka and the mukluks, you’ll want to reveal smooth, toned skin, right?How many of those cute little dresses are short and sleeveless?  Plus fireplaces and heaters warm everything up inside, and the layers start to shed. Whether it’s a wedding, work event, brunch, or caribbean cruise, it’s a great excuse to get a little boost of color!

Cozy nights in with your S.O.  

OK, so your bikini body will go a few more months before hitting the beach, but hanging with your honey with a nice bronzed body that accentuates your curves and contours can always add a little confidence, right? Living single? When you go clothes shopping and bare all in front of the bright lights in the dressing room, your spray tan will help paint a better picture of what that outfit will look like in real daylight!

To look good is to feel good.

Sometimes, just doing a little something that makes us feel better can lift our spirits for hours, or even days. Lighting a candle, getting a massage or buying a new lip gloss don’t seem life changing on the surface, but anything that can improve your mood will create a happier you. A daily practice of treating yourself to something nice, even if it is just a cup of coffee, will go along way. Include an airbrush tan in your repertoire of mood-lifters and you’re bound to feel better even on the gloomiest days!

Remember, take good care of you… all year long. We’ll see you at Ortanic!
