We’ve all seen that splotchy, orange-skinned woman who looks like they lost a battle with a bottle of self-tanner. Wellington resident Melissa Weinberg has come up with a solution for that. Weinberg launched Perfect Glow Sunless, a professional tanning spray, and Melissa Weinberg Tanning & Beauty, a line of streak-proof, odorless at-home sunless tanning products. The take-home line ranges from $22 to $39.95 at Mwmelissaweinberg.com.
“Although I’m a blonde now, I’m a natural redhead with freckles who couldn’t tan at all,” Weinberg said. “I experienced skin cancer from sun bathing. I really wanted to come up with a way for people to get a quality tan without the sun. My boyfriend had suggested I try spray tanning. I gradually started building color on my skin and instantly liked it. A good tan always knocks off 10 pounds and camouflages veins. I looked at the products I was using and wanted to create my own.”
Over a year and a half ago, Weinberg started her line, which includes a professional spray tanning solution as well as the Perfect Glow Sunless in five blends to offer a realistic faux glow for various skin tones.
“It’s not just about the color. You want it to fade well, too,” Weinberg said of her line, which offers ingredients such as coconut oil, Argan oil, cucumber extract, elderberry extract, white tea extract and other moisturizing ingredients to smooth skin and build a natural color base. “I’m really proud of my products, which are Paraben-free, gluten-free, formaldehyde-free and without sulfates, mineral oils or petrochemical. We also don’t test any of the products on animals.”
Weinberg has incorporated a natural fade technology into her line that doesn’t leave behind blotchy spots on skin.
“The whole point of getting a natural tan is feeling and looking like you were really in the sun,” she said. “For those on the go, I also have a Rapid Self-Tanning Mousse, which dries quickly and allows the user to rinse off in only one to four hours instead of the typical eight hours you need to wait to wash off. It’s great because you can even sleep on white sheets and not worry about it coming off.”
Melissa Weinberg’s self-tanning tips:
• If you are using the tanning mousse, start off using only one coat of the mousse and rinse in eight to 10 hours. It’s always better to start conservative. If you want to be darker then next time you can apply two coats.
• After your first shower, use the MW luxury body lotion at least two times a day to maintain and prolong the tan.
• If you choose to use the gradual tanner, start off applying once a day (before bed) and a healthy glow will start to build in a few days. You can always increase to two times a day.
