The sun beats down on Austin throughout the year, but savvy locals know that they don't need to bask in its rays to achieve a rich tan. Bronzed Glo Airbrush Tanning's technicians bronze skin with a Sol Potion tanning system that they can apply in-house or on location. They use a handheld device to spray a fine mist of UV-free solution across the skin, creating a natural glow without the sun's skin-damaging side effects. To extend the lifespan of their tans, the technicians offer a range of add-ons. One of these is a pretan exfoliation spray that balances the skin's pH levels; another is a double dip that adds a second coat of tanning spray or chocolate.
