Let’s face it.
I live in New England where for 9 months of the year it is cold. The sun shines for just a few short hours and the only true warmth you feel comes from the seat warmers in your car or scalding yourself in the shower.
Ugh, it’s not great.
However, there are ways to negate this feeling of gloom. Especially when you’re skin begins to blend in with blanket of snow that is soon to cover the leaf infested ground.
It’s called a spray tan and it’s no longer just for celebrities, figure competitors and, well, Snooki.
About a month ago I was introduced to Lauren —
a bright, cheery Bostonian whose idea to build a mobile and organic spray tanning company has taken off.
The company is called Pure Glow
and their mission speaks for itself,
To encourage healthy habits and provide a safe alternative to tanning in the sun or in an indoor bed. We believe what you put on your skin is just as important as what you put in your body. We also believe that when you look good, you feel even better. We make it easy to look great and feel good about your glow.
I was lucky enough to have Lauren come to my house and spray my sad sun-craving skin last Friday. And let me tell you … I’m still glowing, literally.
Not sure if y’all saw this picture from Insta, but with just a light filter I think it speaks for itself.
The color is even, not orange and fades well.
While Lauren was at my house she set up right in my bedroom … which was both convenient and extremely clean. I have white rugs and furniture and not a lick of the bronzer got on it.
Here’s what Pure Glow prides itself on:
– No UV Rays
– Only Organic, Skin Nourishing Ingredients
– Alcohol Free, Oil Free, Fragrance Free, Hypoallergenic
Now before you go thinking, ‘Really Caroline? Spray tanning isn’t something I would ever do. I’d turn out looking fake.’
Trust me, spray tanning has come a long way since that episode of Friends. If you go to the right place the coverage is even and you walk away feeling healthy and radiant.

Not to mention, coming from someone who sweats for a living (and sometimes takes 3 showers a day), the color holds up.
So what are you waiting for? Have you ever got a spray tan? Beach season is a long time away and that flight to Miami isn’t getting cheaper.
