Where to get a Spray tan in Bern?


Hello all

So I'm just wondering if anyone knows where to get a Spray tan in Bern?Preferably from a walk in booth rather than the airbrushing method..but I'm nottoo picky either. I know it’s not a popular "look" here inSwitzerland for most..but I unapologetically love a tan. So any help is much appreciated

But we now have mid-May and you can easily get a natural tan in many places !

Re: Where to get a Spray tan in Bern?

Yes..I am aware that I can tan naturally..but I'm trying to avoid the leather catchers mit look later in life. I want to be safe about my tans, looks just arn't worth risking skin cancer etc.. for.

Don't do it!!!

The oompa loompa orange "look" that is the inevitable result of spray tans, isn't a good look anywhere, and an extremely poor excuse for a "tan"!

But no, haven't seen any in my time here.

Come round to my place, bring the spray, and I'll spray you on the balcony. Maybe after dusk would be best, as otherwise the neighbours might become curious.

Respectfully "the orange look" following a spray tan simply isn't true if it is done correctly by a professional.

So, let's get this straight - you think that the appearance of being a healthy outdoors person is actually unhealthy, but you want to look like it anyway?

All else apart, fake tans always look fake. A real tan will be uneven, with white bits where glasses, hair, hat shades, collars, watches etc. etc. get in the way. Of course one would try and avoid stark panda-eyes, but anyone without any missed bits will always come across as a faker.

If you just go out in the sun a little, but take care with your sun protection, I don't think you need to worry about looking leathery later in life. Not unless you go to extremes like this of course

Re: Where to get a Spray tan in Bern?

Aaahh, that's what I love about the EF - clear, straight and useful answers, nothing judgemental.
Come on all - the OP asked a normal question, and so far only openid has given a halfway useful answer.

Useful? What do you think this is, some sort of newspaper advice column?

Been said before, and won't be the last time, but anyone posting these sorts of questions to a public forum should expect exactly these sorts of answers.

Who appointed you as the ministry of communications?! As far as I'm concerned, the OP had a valid question and as usual, the self-righteous crowd couldn't keep it zipped. Some of you could honestly use some mental spray tan to lively up them grey cells a bit.

Re: Where to get a Spray tan in Bern?

Spot on. Its always the same people giving others a hard time, with their pointless remarks. But you have to put up with it. For some EF is the only contact they get with the outside world.

I think OP just said he/she didn't want to look like an old camel's scrote, fair enough i'd say!

the natural tanning is still the most healthy and least risky way, provided of course a little bit of sense is used. Your body sends you unmistakeable warning signal if it becomes too much. If you feel overheated or otherwise unwell, or get a slight headache, your place is in the shadow. I cannot give advice about tanning-oils and lotions as I almost never need the stuff for me. Last time I used something was on a visit to Banjul and Dakar years ago. Here again, you have to use common sense and reason.

I mean I sometimes in summer really wonder when I see blonde and blue eyed people in the full sun for 10 hours and looking like freshly grilled Cervelats

A special thing is when going swimming the Dead Sea and in the Gulf of Aqaba. You have to rub in lots of such stuff BEFORE and after swimming, as both places are exceedingly salty.

Re: Where to get a Spray tan in Bern?

Wow...this thread has gone sooo far away from my origional question. I understand some people don't like the look of a spray tan. But I really didn't ask for the opinions etc...I just wanted to know where to get it. I apprechiate not everyone likes it.

But keep your negative opinions to your selves, I like a little "glow" especially when its safe..if you'd like to talk about "orange tans" etc..go spew it on your facebook account I'm sure all your friends are just dying to hear your opions..

Rant over !
