Having a sun-kissed tan and feeling that extra pep in your step (especially after coming off of winter) when your skin looks glowy and chalk full of vitamin D is the essence of summer! And here in Michigan, we need to take what we can get when we do have sunny, warm weather! That being said – I have been a sun-worshipper since I was a pre-teen and value the importance of making sure I am tanning as safely as possible with the proper amount of SPF, wearing sunblock on my face and neck every day (even in the winter) and making sure to never using tanning beds (ever).
So, when Grand City Tanning reached out to me about their customized, organic, vegan, paraben and gluten free spray tan services I was pumped with excitement to give it a try! I also happen to be getting married next month so giving the spray tan a trial run and sporting a healthy glow – no brainer! I was a little nervous because I had never tried spray tanning before but since I don’t carry a tan all year round anymore (no fake n bake here), I felt extra good about trying out this local service! And, the results have left me feeling more gorgeous and confident than I ever could’ve imagined. 😍Grand City Tanning just celebrated their one year anniversary and the ladies behind the brand – owner Lauren and regional Manager, Kristen – have been making a pretty big impact in the GR area thus far.
GCT sponsors the GR Drive Dance Team (check out the awesome video collab), are active in educating the community in the dangers of indoor tanning beds and promoting cancer free tanning, started the GCT Prom Squad which will continue to spread that mission to high school girls – the peak age of tanning bed usage – and I can’t wait to see what else this year has in store for them!
Currently, they’re expanding their GCT Prom Squad – so if you or someone you know is in High School and is interested in joining their squad and becoming an ambassador, contact GCT via Instagram to learn more about the involvement and how you can be entered into winning some free tan swag!
GCT is located in Kentwood off of 29th St. and you can book your appointment for the salon location for $36 (full spray) or they can come to your house for $55. The stylists also offer some pretty cool Bridal Packages (Bridal Glo) if you happen to be tying the knot this year like me as well as other package options (including at home discounts with friends). The full list of pricing is located here and the user interface for booking online is super easy.

Cheers to a #healthyglow in 2016!
