Get holiday proof in just 20 minutes with Pure Tans

Do you envy the ladies with perfectly tanned legs?
 I normally use protection with F50 and I can tell you… that doesn’t bring you those tanned leggs. Luckily for me I discovered the secret about 6 months ago. And I think I was one of the last ones on the planet. But hey, you can’t be an early adopter on every matter ;-).

The best kept beauty secret to me is called spray tan… Something I probably wouldn’t have thought about a few years ago, but once you’ve experienced it I’m sure you want to do it again. It gives me the confidence to wear shorts on my first day of vacation instead of on the last :-).

And if I had discovered spray tan earlier in mu life I would have never gone to the tanning bed. Now I just schedule an appointment with Asia of Pure Tans and within only 20 minutes my skin is caramel coloured. Pure Tans is a beauty secret in Amsterdam I like to share with you!

Before every trip where I have to show my legs and wear a bikini I go to Pure Tans.  Or I should frame it different… Pure Tans comes to me! It’s one of the first beauty salons that offers treatments on delivery. To your home or your hotel room or any other location that works best for you. I always book the spray tan before almost every trip that I make. I think it’s ideal, the tan lasts for over 4 days and fades slowly after that.


Pure Tans is a mobile spray tan studio and Asia comes to your home or hotel room for the treatment. But in the case that you don’t have an address in Amsterdam you can also book the the appointment at Asia’s house in Amsterdam City Center. Do you want to read more on what to expect?
