Some spray-tanning solutions rely on toxic chemicals for their bronzing powers, but not the one favored by spray-tanning artist Carol Fusco. The Smart Tan–certified technician uses the all-natural Bronze Biologic solution, which uses ingredients such as sugar cane, aloe vera, and DHA––a natural skin tanner derived from beet sugar. In just 15 minutes, Carol applies the tanner to the whole body, creating a natural-looking glow that works with any skin type and can last for 7–10 days, depending on the clients maintenance following their service.
Inside the salon, Carol leads prospective tanners to a private area, where they may remove makeup with provided pH-balancing wipes and put on a disposable hairnet. She also opens the cozy, plushly furnished space for spray-tanning parties and can take her mobile tanning tent to customers’ homes to provide on-location tanning services.
