Custom Airbrush Tan at the Rittenhouse Spa & Club

It’s true that exfoliating oneself pre-spray tan is vital to getting the best possible (and longest-lasting) bronzed results. So if the place is willing to do that part for us? We’re in. This $150 hour-long treatment uses a pineapple enzyme exfoliant, which is less harsh than a scrub and is rinsed off in an en-suite shower before your airbrushed glow is applied by hand.
