4 Tips for the Perfect Spray Tan

It's that time of year again where the tan get tanner and the pale suffer! If you're anything like me and can't even get a shade darker, you might want to consider getting a spray tan. Here are four tips to achieving that perfect (fake) glow.

1. Use a machine

My go to is the Mystic Tan. If you just Google search 'Mystic Tan near me' you'll find some tanning salon that has one. It's super easy and applies much more evenly than a person. My favorite place to go for it is Palm Beach Tan, but if you're looking for something a little less pricey, most local tanning salons have one as well.

2. Use a primer

Primers are worth the extra $5 or whatever they cost per packet. They'll make sure your tan is even and is hitting all the right places.


There's a thing called blending cream that's in every Mystic Tan tanning booth. Use it liberally on your fingers, around your cuticles, on your toes, and pretty much anywhere you don't want a tan. It'll make sure your hands and feet don't turn orange.

4. Moisturize

After you've spent all of three minutes (yes, it's really that fast!) getting your tan, it'll last long if you moisturize. Make sure that skin is glowing.

Happy tanning!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
