Summer is upon us! As days get longer and shorts get shorter, we are all wanting to look and feel our best. Along with hitting the gym and eating better, self-care also means hitting the spa, sunbeds and getting a spray tan.

At every iTAN location, we offer two amazing options for long-lasting spray tans.

The #1 question we get is, “which service is best for me?”

If you are a first-timer or want a more customized look, I would encourage you to call a salon near you or pop in for a visit and ask about the Mystic service.

The Mystic is a closed air system which gives you more control over color and contour. It gives you that perfect airbrushed bronze goddess look instantly!

However, if you’re more of a skin-care gal the Versa would fit you better. This open-air service sprays you with amazing bronzed color and a marine algae infused solution that is incredibly hydrating.

If you can’t decide, you can drop by on any Monday for our Mystic Monday promotion where new & existing customers can try a spray session in either the Mystic or Versa booth for just $15. That’s $20 off of the regular price!

For best results of either service, prep your skin by exfoliating beforehand so that products and remedies can bind to your skin for lasting color.

If you want to go the extra mile, there is always the option to schedule a custom airbrush tanning session with a certified airbrush technician.

Regardless of which of our incredible services you choose, the second most common question we get is, “How can I make my tan last longer?”

The easiest (and most effective) skin-care product is rose water!

Rose water is the color, medicinal properties, and aroma that live inside every rose petal.

It’s an ancient skin care remedy that dates as far back as Cleopatra!

Nowadays, it’s typically used in room sprays and perfumes because it fights anxiety and depression by calming your nervous system.

It is a powerful skin remedy that is beneficial for every skin type.

It keeps the supple texture of your skin intact + fights wrinkles, inflammation, and redness.

On top of that, it softens scars and tough skin, making your skin look younger every day

Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, it does!

There’s no need to go out and purchase expensive elixirs. You can make Rose Water in the comfort of your own home!

Here’s what you’ll need to pull it off:

  •     Rose petals

?      If dried, you’ll need 1 cup

?      If fresh, you’ll need 2 cups

  •     3 cups of water
  •     saucepan with lid
  •     A strainer or cheesecloth
  •     An amber spray bottle

How to make your own Rose Water:

  1.     Add your rose petals to the pot
  2.    Pour water over petals
  3.    Cover the pot and bring to a boil
  4.    Bring heat down to low. (Just hot enough to still see steam)
  5.    Warm petals until all the petals release all the color to the water.
  6.    Turn off as soon as the petals are colorless. Allow to cool completely
  7.    Strain off the dregs.
  8.    Bottle in your jar.

This will keep for up to 3 months if you store it in the refrigerator. That shelf life is cut in ¼ if kept on your bathroom counter or medicine cabinet.

You can also find some amazing tan products at all of our locations!
