According to Skininc.com, only 10-15% of aging is the result of genetics. Extrinsic aging, or aging caused by outside factors, accounts for 85-90% of aging...the sun being the worst of these factors.


After graduating from Assumption College with an accounting degree, I soon realized that accounting/finance was not the career field I wanted. Only a few months later, I enrolled into esthetics school at Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics. Skincare had always been an obsession of mine, so I decided to go back to school for a career I knew I would enjoy. I graduated from the 1,200-hour Master Esthetics program as a Licensed Esthetician.

In high school and my early years in college, I worshipped the sun. If I wasn’t laying outside for hours at a time, I was visiting a tanning bed. While in esthetic school, I learned how damaging the sun, and the radiation it emits, is for the skin - the body’s largest organ. I began to acknowledge all the harm I had caused to mine over the years, so sunscreen, which I had only used occasionally at the beach, became a necessity in my daily routine. However, I still wasn’t ready to embrace my Irish complexion, so I became interested in airbrush tanning.

As a result, I  established Kissed, an organic airbrush tanning service, as a healthy and safer method for obtaining a glowing appearance. My goal is to educate others on the importance of skincare and to provide an alternative service to sun-bathing that looks just as natural.

At Kissed, only the most natural and skin nourishing ingredients are used.

Our solutions are 100% customizable, cruelty-free (PETA approved), odorless, fast-drying, and non-comedogenic (won't clog pores). They are formulated without fragrance, gluten, mineral oil, parabens or sulfates. Lastly, all colors contain naturally derived aloe vera and antioxidants to help keep skin hydrated and reduce the signs of aging.

To enhance and amplify results, every client is sprayed with a pH balancer before their airbrush tan. The pH balancer is an extra preparation step for the skin, as it helps to fight uneven fading and discoloration. It balances the skin’s pH level through the use of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing ingredients, which include witch hazel, arnica, rosemary, and aloe vera. Using the pH balancer improves the life of your airbrush tan by 20-30%.
