Jeni Elizabeth: I’m a huge fan of the spray tan. There’s absolutely something about it that makes me feel amazing! My personal feeling is that it can give you a healthy natural glow, and it makes you look toned and thinner. I love the definition that it can give you in your legs (with those perfect Louboutins, of course!) and arms, nevermind the sprayed-on abs! These days all women want to do things that make them feel better about themselves, and this is a temporary fix that makes you smile. And to be honest, with Jojo it’s fun – the perfect gossip session time.
JE: I embrace it year around! People go in tanning beds year round, so why can’t they get sprayed year round? I do believe there’s a limit. For example, in the summer I love to have a spray tan that’s super dark, as if I’ve had the time to be by the pool all day! Whereas in the winter, I don’t go as dark. It’s important to have moderation, as with anything. However with winter white being so big this fall, I couldn’t be more excited for my tan!
JE: I tend to just wear my sweats. Also, with Brown Buns, nothing stains your clothing, so generally I don’t worry about it. If I’m in the middle of my work day, Jojo will take the time to make sure that I’m completely dry before getting dressed (with her heat blower…love it!). I try to always wear a loose t-shirt and a pair of sweat pants. I would say the only “no-no” would be white. Other than that, everything washes out.
IHH: How often do you spray tan? What about the cast of Jersey Shore?
JE: In a perfect world, I would spray once a week. Unfortunately, things get a little crazy at times, but the more the better! Jojo comes right to my house, and the whole process is over in 15 minutes. I don’t think you could ask for a better set-up!
IHH: Have you ever had a spray tan mistake, and, if so, how did you fix it?
JE: I, for sure, have had mistakes! I’ve left spray tanning sessions (more than once) a lovely shade of orange. I’ve also suffered from tan in my cuticles and weird marks on my hands. My technique was scrubbing with a soft scrub to remove it, but it’s horrible for your skin! Since I started using Brown Buns, I’ve never had that issue. Jojo takes the time to wipe down your nails, your hands and your feet. I’m not sure there’s anyone in the world who hasn’t tried spray tanning and had some sort of bad experience; it’s all about finding the perfect match, and the perfect tanner!
