    NATIONAL SPRAY TANNING DAY | Third Thursday in March

    Get your glow on and celebrate National Spray Tanning Day on the third Thursday in March by getting a fresh spray tan!

    #NationalSprayTanningDay

    After the winter, our skin can be dull and dry. Today on National Spray Tanning Day, prepare to glow all spring and summer with a natural spray tan. In fact, spray tanning is a great way to achieve a healthy head-to-toe glow and is customizable for any skin tone.

    There are two types of spray tanning. The first uses an automated spray booth. The second uses a professional spray tan artist creating an air-brushed glow using a handheld spray machine. Both options allow for a customizable and desirable color that compliments all skin tones. In addition, both types of spray tanning involve being sprayed with a liquid solution that contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA).

    Dihydroxyacetone is a naturally derived and fermented active ingredient that reacts with your skin to mimic a tan for a temporary amount of time. After getting a spray tan, it’s important to leave the solution on your skin for between four and 24 hours, rinsing when you have achieved your desired color. A spray tan:

    • Provides a sun-kissed glow in just minutes.
    • Evens out uneven skin complexion.
    • Gives skin a more toned appearance.
    • Boosts confidence.
    • Can be customized based on your preferences.
    • Contains vitamins to lock moisture into skin.
    • Gives an even and streak-free tan.
    • Offers an option for tan lines.
    • Includes optional scents based on your preferences.

      Tantalizing Benefits

      There are many benefits to spray tanning. Not only can you achieve a sun-kissed look in just minutes, spray tanning also gives you a major confidence boost! The average spray tan, whether it be in an automatic booth or by a professional spray tan artist, takes about 5 minutes. For most people, when taking the route of traditional sun tanning, it can take hours or days to begin seeing a sun-kissed glow. Sadly, many people receive a sunburn instead of a tan when choosing the traditional sun tanning.

        How Do You Prepare for a Spray Tan?

        Preparing for a spray tan can help to elevate your overall experience. To get the most natural looking and long-lasting tan, be sure to:

        • Shower, exfoliate, and shave/wax 24-28 hours before your session.
        • Arrive for your appointment with clean skin. Do not apply moisturizers, deodorant, oils, or make-up before your appointment.
        • Wear loose-fitting, dark colored clothing to prevent bronzer transfer.
        • Schedule your manicure and/or pedicure appointments prior to your spray tan appointment, so that your tan does not fade prematurely.
        • Bring a rain jacket if there is a chance of rain to protect your tan while it is developing.
        • Avoid rinsing or getting wet for a minimum of 4 hours. You can leave your tan on for up to 24 hours before rinsing.

        Post Spray Tan Tips

        Your post-spray tan care is just as important as the preparation! Be sure to keep in mind the following tips to help your tan last as long as possible:

        • Rinse your spray tan with warm water and minimal soap/scrubbing.
        • Pat dry after rinsing your tan instead of wiping off moisture.
        • Apply moisturizer after your shower and then daily to extend your tan.
        • Avoid swimming/bathing for the first 24 hours after your spray tan.
        • Use self-tanners to help extend the length of your tan.

        SKIN GLOW CELEBRATION

        • Make an appointment for a spray tan at a location near you.
        • Flaunt your favorite outfit to wear once your spray tan is fully developed and rinsed.
        • Encourage your friends and family to utilize spray tanning as a healthy way to glow.
        • Share photos of your spray tan on social media using the hashtag #NationalSprayTanningDay.
        • Be on the lookout for giveaways, promotions, and events nationwide surrounding National Spray Tanning Day by following @mystictan, @versaspa, and @norvellsunless on Instagram.

      • NATIONAL PHYSICIANS WEEK – March 25-31

        NATIONAL PHYSICIANS WEEK

        National Physicians Week sets out March 25 -31 to honor the healers dedicated to the art of medicine. In 2017, National Physicians Week highlighted the shortage of physicians in the United States against a growing landscape of minorities joining the ranks.

        “In hindsight, I am proud of what we have accomplished in a short period of time, including raising the recognition of our group and spotlighting the years of sacrifice by those in our profession to serve our patients. We are poised to initiate actionable efforts to engage and educate our physician community.” Dr. Kimberly Funches Jackson, President

        Every day, dedicated doctors provide quality care in every part of the country twenty-four hours a day. Whether it is in an emergency room in Idaho or delivering a newborn in the suburbs of Philadelphia, a physician listens to symptoms, watches for signs, analyzes and consults to make, with the patient, the best decisions their years of training and dedication can provide.

        PAST CELEBRATIONS

        In 2018, Physicians Working Together celebrated with their first, National Physician Week physician-led virtual conference. Co-hosted by Physicians Working Together and Zenxmed, the conference included engaging speaker sessions. It also offered an open landscape for physicians to discuss ways to improve their practice and navigate the political landscape. Another area of focus on how physicians can improve relationships with patients and take action through advocacy groups.

        In 2017, National Physicians Week focused on the shortage of physicians in the United States against a growing landscape of minorities joining the ranks of doctors across the country at a time when it needs it most.

        HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalPhysiciansWeek

        Throughout the week, take the opportunity to show your support and appreciation for your physician or a fellow professional. You can do this by giving them a red carnation. Encourage others and spread the word through social media by using #NationalPhysiciansWeek and #PWT. Stay updated on all things PWT by visiting best2gether.org and the Physicians Working Together website.

        PWT LogoNATIONAL PHYSICIANS WEEK HISTORY

        In June 2015, Kimberly Funches Jackson MD founded Physicians Working Together (PWT). The organization unites physicians of all levels, training, and specialties. Bringing the ailing patient-doctor relationship back to the central focus of healing and respect spurred Dr. Jackson to form PWT and ultimately National Physicians Week.

        The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared National Physicians Week in December of the same year. PWT provides a platform for doctors to combine efforts that will strengthen healthy physician relationships through collaboration and genuine camaraderie. Physicians and medical students are encouraged to help keep the spark going by celebrating National Physicians Week annually.
