A sexy tan has become an essential summer staple, but with impossible to avoid tan lines and ever-growing concerns over health risks, faking it seems like a better and better option. But let’s be honest, no one wants to end up an orange, streaky mess a la Ross when he tries to imitate Monica’s sun-kissed glow. But never fear, I have the low-down on Toronto’s best spray tans so that you can be a bronzed god(dess) long after your vacation has ended.
