Skin Palette is focused on providing our clients with a healthy solution to looking and feeling great with a glow.
We grew up in a culture that supported our belief that ‘tanned’ skin was healthy and beautiful. We oiled, baked and burned to our hearts content, never realizing the high price our skin would pay in the future. Well, the future is now, and while we still believe in healthy, radiant skin, we can no longer afford the harmful damage of the sun’s exposure. We’ve put countless products to the test, ranging from self-tanning lotions to spray tans that have left us disappointed. After extensive research in pursuit of a tanning product that gave us a golden hue, rather than an unnatural orange tint and unpleasant odor, we are thrilled to offer professional-grade solutions customized for every skin tone! In 10 minutes, our team achieved the ‘look’ that made us feel beautiful and skin smart. Whether you are preparing for an event or headed back to work, Skin Palette offers multiple shades to fulfill every preference. Skin Palette has been featured on ABC, Good Day, Fox News, and NBC- The Scene and The Philly Post. InStyle Magazine recently awarded Skin Palette “Best Sunless Tanning” in Pennsylvania. Our vision for SKIN PALETTE is to help others embrace healthier lifestyle choices that enhances the body and leaves you looking and feeling great.
