It’s a proven fact that good healthy doses make people feel better; a lack of sunshine doesn’t mean you have to do without a great looking bronze appearance, which can make you feel and look more attractive.
Pre-tanning is also a benefit prior to leaving winter climes and heading to sun destinations; it gives you a head start on your vacation appearance.
At this time of year, there’s little chance to get any dose of natural sun in Annapolis, or anywhere in Maryland for that matter.
Ruby Salon has the solution with their new organic spray on tan. Ruby is an exclusive dealer of Envy Tan, a certified organic spray-on tanning solution.
A spray on tan is actually healthier for your skin than natural sunlight, and is applied via an airbrushing application. The salon custom mixes a shade that will look natural with your own skin tone, as well as meeting your own requirements for shade, whether you prefer a little color or a deep bronze.
Like any suntan, the results will fade over time, and spray-on tans can be expected to last 5-10 days, depending on how your own skin exfoliates and your use of maintenance products. You tan can be extended with special moisturizers and other products that Ruby Salon can recommend during your visit.
You should prepare for your session by cleaning and exfoliating your skin the day of your session; do not wear make up and don loose fitting clothing. Waiting 8-12 hours after your session before bathing will allow the tanning solution to achieve a more complete penetration.
Special rates are available for multiple sessions, if you desire to maintain your tan throughout a season.
Ruby Salon is open Tuesday through Saturday, with late hours Tuesday through Thursday. Appointments can be made online.
Ruby offers full hair and make-up services, and specializes in wedding work. They are located off historic West Street, near the Westin Hotel in Annapolis. Need directions? Use the salon’s easy route planner online.
