The Faux Tan Industry

It has been a remarkable transformation for an industry that was once a joke. When it was introduced in 1998, Mystic Tan, which is widely credited as the first mainstream spray tan, often resulted in a bathed-in-­Cheetos look.

Now spray tan “artists” have gone from maligned outsiders to wealthy specialists.
