No need to run to a tanning salon, we come to you!

A certified spray tan stylist will come to a customer's destination with a portable booth, so that the process, which takes 10-12 minutes, can be completed anywhere without a mess. Because customers don't have to rush to put on their clothes and leave, as they do at a salon, their tans can fully dry without fear of staining clothing or car seats. With proper preparation and care, a tan from Spray Tans by Jen will last up to one full week.
Spray Tans by Jen uses products by Spray Tan L.A. who uses DHA (dihydroxyacetone), a spray tanning agent that reacts with the skin to create a sunless tan. The process begins with the application of a pH-balancing spray to prevent the dreaded "orange" look. Customers choose a DHA solution that develops into a full tan about eight hours later, mixed with a bronzer for some immediate and accurate color (the bronzer washes off in the shower, by which time the sunless tan will have taken effect). Spray Tan L.A.'s solutions, all 100% certified organic, include Organic Silk (no bronzer), Organic Original (light bronzer), Organic Cocoa (medium bronzer) and Organic Rio (dark bronzer). Two signature trademarked scents are also available: Coconut Paradise and Caramel.
“Tanning beds use ultraviolet light, a known carcinogen, often at strengths 10 to 15 times stronger than summer midday exposure, according to an investigative report prepared for the House Committee on Energy and Commerce earlier this year.
The World Health Organization lists tanning beds as a dangerous form of cancer-causing radiation, noting that use before age 30 raises the risk of melanoma, the deadliest skin cancer, by 75 percent.
In the United States, non-melanoma skin cancer strikes about 2 million people a year, with 50 percent to 90 percent of all cases resulting from UV radiation, according to WHO. It is the second most common type of cancer for people aged 15 to 29, Banerjee said.
In addition, about 75,000 new cases of melanoma are expected in 2012, accounting for about three-quarters of the 12,000 anticipated skin cancer-related deaths. However, most forms of the disease can be successfully treated if caught early.”
