Ever wondered why we all think a tan looks ‘healthy’

when we know now that excessive sun exposure is a major factor in premature aging and is implicated by the experts in causing skin cancer?

Not sure we will figure out that paradox, but I love the look of tanned skin. Like many of you, I know I look better with a tan and I am glad we have safe, year-round options to keep that sun-kissed glow.

Technology comes to the rescue as both teens and adults now have safe tanning options that are based on product improvements. All self-tanning products are based on the ingredient dhiydroxyacetone. DHA is a lot easier to remember

DHA is most often obtained from sugar beets or sugar cane and was discovered to be a skin-coloring agent by German scientists in the 1920s. Through decades of product development, we now have safe and effective ways to tan our skin.

Home aerosol and non-aerosol sprays can be effective to touch up our tan or give a glow to arms and legs, but let’s face it, applying them evenly all over the skin is a challenge.

After much research into different systems, I am convinced that the best technology out there for application of DHA-based tanning products is an automated mist system that offers complete privacy. We’ve just launched the service at our Southbury salon, and it is coming soon to Ridgefield.

Our well-appointed private tanning room and easy-to-use, automated state-of-the art equipment gives fantastic results in just one session in any depth of tan you choose. There’s a picture of the system above, along with our menu and introductory offers below.

Like everything we offer at Adam Broderick, your results are guaranteed. That’s important to me and always will be.
