Don't be scared getting a Spray Tan

Spray Tanning

I have been in the Industry for 15 years. You could say I've seen it all when it comes to womens' bodies. So I was really surprised to find out that some of my most confident friends were worried about getting naked in front of their tanning expert.

The fear of stripping down to next-to-nothing to have a tanning technician—someone like me—spray them with fake tan, had even stopped some of my friends from booking an appointment. This makes me sad, and so I've come up with a list of the things your tanning expert is really thinking when she's applying your tan.


Keep Calm and Stay Tanned

Trust me, we truly have seen it all before and nothing will scare/surprise us/shock us. Plus, to be honest, we don't care, we actually probably haven't even noticed your boobs, your tummy, or whatever is is you're self-conscious about.

I am here to tell you, with all my years of experience, I have never looked at whether or not your bikini line is trimmed, or whether your legs are shaved. I really don't look at these details that you all seem to be worrying about; I am doing my job, which is to make you feel incredible, gorgeous and confident.

I've observed your body closer than your best friend (and probably your boyfriend, too) but I'm doing it all so that when you go out on your date, or out with your friends, you walk out beaming with confidence and an even tan.

I always look closely to check whether the tan is going on evenly—nobody wants a blotchy, patchy bright orange tan, right?

I can solemnly promise that your beauty therapist doesn't care whether you're a size six or a size 16. We don't care if you haven't had your bikini waxed in five years or if one boob appears bigger than the other. Why would we judge when we are also women with our own insecurities?

Next time you book your tan and begin to worry about taking your clothes off... please stop your thoughts in their tracks.
