Attn NoVA/DC/MD High School Students + Parents :: Prom Confidence Event + Giveaway on March 24th

On Saturday, March 24, local merchants and activists for young people will come together to make some prom dreams come true for teenagers in Northern Virginia, D.C., and Maryland. The group previously hosted makeovers with local teens, including the one featured in the video above of Nailah Phillips, a sophomore at Heritage HIgh School in Leesburg. Perhaps the best part about these makeovers is that the team bases its prom and homecoming events not only on making over the outside, but on reminding teens first, to see and appreciate their strengths, and second, to know that each is truly special.

5 Reasons Spray-On Tans are Better

5 Reasons Spray-On Tans are Better

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the country. Furthermore, around 90 percent of all skin cancer cases are associated with exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. Even indoor tanning beds, which 30 million people use per year, pose health risks. Because of this, many people are in search of a healthier option. Today, the spray-on tan option is increasingly offering many benefits over other forms of tanning.

“Many people are not familiar with the type of spray-on tan that we offer,” explains Meghan Farrar, owner of Golden Glow Mobile Spray Tan (www.goldenglowtansva.com), located in NoVa. “Those who do know and opt for it find out just what a great-looking tan they can get, and how much better it is than sunbathing or being exposed to UV tanning booths.”

Did you know?

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer—affecting over 2 million people—are diagnosed annually.

  1. Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.
  2. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.
  3. Over the past 31 years, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined.

With those alarming numbers, we still find people baking in the sun and using indoor tanning beds. We are all searching for the fountain of youth and if one wants to change their look in an instant without needles, knives, sun damage or even a doctor’s visit, sunless tanning is the answer.
