Because the skin is the body’s largest and fastest-growing organ, serving as a protective barrier for internal organs and fluids, it’s vital to your health that you make wise choices in what skincare products you slather (or spray) on to it. In addition to being a protective barrier, the skin rids the body of toxins and helps prevent waste build up. Therefore, taking care of your skin helps you care for your overall health.
In my search for the New York’s best spray tan, it was vital to find a formula that wouldn’t disturb the skin’s equilibrium and a formula that won’t deposit chemicals into the skin.

My search led me to Marlena Orlowska of Paul Labrecque Salon, where the spray tan formula is made from a micro nutrient technology that delivers a potent blend of vitamins and antioxidants to boost the skin’s natural glow.
