How a Battle with Skin Cancer Inspired Tiffany Terranova to Create RAW Bronzing Studio

In search of a tanning solution that fit her lifestyle, our next guest created the organic and customizable spray tan salon group, RAW Bronzing Studio. Recently, host Bridget Fitzpatrick was on-location with owner, founder, and Melanoma survivor, Tiffany Terranova.

RAW Bronzing StudioMost people will admit that they enjoy the way a nice, healthy summer glow makes them look and feel, but year-round, sun-kissed skin can come at a cost. Without proper sun protection, the chances of forming various types of skin cancer increase at an alarming rate. Over time, there have been many different tanning alternatives like at-home creams and mousses, UV tanning beds, and spray tans. While these might seem like healthier and safer solutions, tanning beds actually have higher concentrations of harmful UV rays and spray tans use harsh chemicals that can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin.

As a fair-skinned, Stage II Melanoma survivor, Tiffany knew that she wanted to find a safe and healthy way to keep her skin tanned and glowing without the use of rays or chemicals. She wasn’t happy with the options currently out there in the market, so she decided to bring her own concept to life. Are you interested in visiting RAW Bronzing Studio?
