I have to admit, this time of year is kind of blahhh. February vacation has passed, and our local weather is pretty dreary. I was therefore thrilled when a virtual ray of sunshine appeared in my inbox, inviting me to enjoy a custom airbrush tan at Glow in Rye Brook!
I've had spray tans in the past (being a redhead, the sun isn't exactly my BFF), but Glow is an entirely different experience. Located at 14 Rye Ridge Plaza, Suite 220 (above Learning Express, next door to Ripped), an ordinary office door opens from the hallway into a tranquil, zen-like sitting room. Jennifer Materia, Glow's owner, greeted me with a brief questionnaire that I completed by candlelight and surrounded by chic decor.
After chatting for a few minutes, we agreed that a light-medium color would work best with my skin tone, and we walked into a spacious treatment room. There, Jennifer confirmed that my skin was clean and bare (without lotion) and offered disposable undies. She then turned on a ventilation fan, and we got started. The airbrush process took about 5 minutes, and the drying process took another minute or so. And that's it! I was able to get dressed (in loose-fitting clothes) right away and go on with my day. Jennifer explained that I should wait 3-4 hours before showering or sweating. So fast and so easy!
I took a peek in the mirror and felt amazing! There's something magical about the look of sun kissed skin…and even more magical knowing that I got my tan without the damaging effects of the sun! The product Jennifer uses at Glow is imported from Australia and is organic. She spent a great deal of time finding the perfect product to use, and it comes in many shades she can customize to be just right for each client. Glow’s airbrush tan is also a great way to cover the cellulite and veins.
I'm beyond excited to have Glow so close to Rye as an option to look great for events, get ready for vacation, or just avoid pale, winter skin! There’s nothing else like this around here.
Glow also sells super cute Frankie’s bikinis and MDSolarSciences products that Jen said her clients LOVE! They offer half body, full body, and face/neck options as well as package deals (or you can try it just once). Glow also offers a mobile option where they will come to your house or hotel! How great is that!
