Glow tanning salon

I enjoy tanning and getting my nails done, on occasion, I mean really who doesn’t enjoy being pampered every once in a while? This is a cold, dark unemotional world we exist in now and I enjoy baking my body in an age accelerator that also gives me a golden glow that makes me forget how unemotional and uncaring everyone else is.

Anyhow, I have been going to this place called GLOW in Brook-field, Wisconsin for about three years now and I believe it is possibly my favorite place in all of Milwaukee next to the Alterra coffee shop on the lake front that is, and only when the sun is shining and it’s like over seventy degrees here in the northern Midwest which is like hardly ever. I swear this place gets more like Seattle every day, gloomy rainy and grey. At least they have “Portlandia “and legalized marijuana to keep their spirits up at any rate.

My friend, Kimberly Tonn owns and operates GLOW tanning and nail lounge on 12621 North Avenue in Brook field and she acts more like a bartender than a salon operator. She is very involved in the happenings around town and always has a smile on her face. She has an intensely positive outlook on her future which is rare in these parts. She has communicated to me her fears that government interference in private tanning policies will eventually put her out of business. That the marketing of that over tanned lady from New jersey who put her 5 year old in a tanning bed will only lend negativity and fear into an already weakened industry that may start charging a “tanning tax” every time you go lie on a beach on a sunny day.

Some very interesting facts I enjoy learning about the tanning industry and its exposure on the public and the stupidity involved by those who over tan. The Sunless market is also a market that I have used upon myself as an experimental lab rat for several years.

Condensing the general facts about sun exposure in it may be stated “exposure to UV radiation whether from the sun or from artificial sources such as sunlamps used in tanning beds- increases the risk of developing skin cancer according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI)”(

Any sun or artificial source of UV radiation is harmful is the general consensus of most websites that offer suntan facts about skin cancer. It is also mentioned on another page that discusses skin cancer facts that 2/3 of all sun damage is already done to the consumer by the time he or she reaches the age of fifteen. It is even suggested that Indoor tanning booths be banned from underage usage.

What these websites do not discuss is the medical benefits of minor UV radiation exposure. If wearing sunblock is an effective preventative measure for the average consumer; or if perhaps all sunshine is like an addictive substance that only famous people and the very wealthy get to enjoy guilt free. Hell, Cary Grant was always bronze and he lived to 96 and never got skin cancer.

At any rate, I often wonder if these websites only exist to sell extremely expensive sun care products that they easily link to. I ended up on the Clarins website (least expensive sunblock product is $30.00 for a 2.5 ounce tube of SPF 15 ) from one of the preventative tanning websites. Many of the brands that offer SPF 15 are linking into as a way to market their product for its sun protective factors. They also offer articles and statistics on how wearing sunscreen every day reduces your risk for melanoma. I am happy to report that I never get into an indoor suntan booth without my handy dandy Clarins SPF 15. If I do this every day will it make me a healthier and more productive human being? God I hope so.
