The Best Places to Get a Spray Tan Across Canada

Say hello to bronzed, summer-ready skin!

Victoria Christie

Real talk: When it comes to summer skin, you’re either naturally #blessed with a bronzed glow or you have to layer on SPF 50+ every time you step outside to avoid burning to a crisp (*slowly raises hand*). If you don’t want to expose your presh flesh to the harsh UVA/UVB rays that do serious damage to your skin, but you still want to look like you just got back from a sunny vacation, you’re probably no stranger to spray tanning. But let’s be honest, it can be tough to self-tan at home (weird tan lines and streaky applications are literally the worst) or find a spot in your city to get a faux tan. Well, we did the work for you and rounded up the best places to get a spray tan across Canada. Turns out, you can still look like you just got back from a week-long getaway in the Maldives without ever leaving the city.
