Valentine’s Day is now behind us, and Punxsutawney Phil is a liar.

So, naturally, we can turn our intentions away from the cold-weather blues and towards warmer, brighter, days.

Can you think of a better way to say SAYONARA to snowboots and slippery ice than a sun-kissed, golden glow? Heck no.

Two things that spa experts can agree on is the importance of factuality and that of feeling good. There have been a number of surveys conducted which suggest that, according to modern standards, having a tanned complexion means that other people perceive you as being healthy and active. Research is also constantly telling us that women feel more attractive, confident, and slimmer with a tan. And we all know that when we know we look good, we feel even better.

While we strongly encourage you to actually be healthy and active, long-term exposure to the sun’s rays can have damaging effects on the skin. Damaged skin is something that upsets you and I both. Something we can smile about, however, is that modern science has blessed us with the ability to achieve a faux-glow. Since the beginning of this breed of bronzing, there has been a lot of trial and error. This is where you have a flashback about your horrific stint as an oompa loompa.

Thankfully, we take this seriously. Devoted skincare experts at Ascend Spa in Kew Gardens know exactly how to help you achieve the healthiest and most natural looking tan, without exposing yourself to wrinkle- and cancer-causing UVA and UVB rays. I won’t spoil all of the exciting information for you, but I can tell you confidently that the method of airbrush tan provided in our beautification sanctuary has consistently been voted “Best of the Best” by Allure Magazine, and is the color of choice for the sets of Disney, Dreamworks, HBO, NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX.
