'Tanning Mom' Coming to Mt. Kisco This Friday

Patricia Krentcil, known as "The Tanning Mom," will be guest at book launch party.

Patricia Krentcil, commonly referred to as "Tanning Mom," is coming to Mount Kisco this Friday as a special guest for the launch of a new book, according to a press announcement for the event.

The book, called The Skin Regime: Bootcamp for Beautiful Skin, is by author Dana Ramos. It details The Skin Regime, which involves ways to repair skin damaged by the sun. Ramos, a Westchester County resident, is described on the book's website as a "skin-care enthusiast" and a writer. Dr. David Bank, a Mount Kisco dermatologist, has written the foreward.

The release also states that Krentcil has benefited from the method.

"Ms. Krentcil is healing her sun-damaged skin with The Skin Regime." 

Krentcil, who is shown in news photos as having had a dark tan complexion, has received negative publicity this year. In May, the Nutley, NJ mom was charged with child endangerment after letting her 5-year-old daughter use a tanning salon bed, according to our sister site, Belleville-Nutley Patch, and pleaded not guilty. Recently, Krentcil has tried to stay away from tanning, and posed on the cover of in Touch to show her early results.

In an interview with the magazine, she described her urges to get tan, even ignoring a doctor's advice to cut back. Her situation has been described in media outlets as "tanorexia."

The book event is Friday, 7 p.m., at Westchester Mixed Martial Arts in Mount Kisco.

Given everything else that we have to be concerned about, I have to agree with you.
Dana September 19, 2012 at 12:44 AM
before you go hating on somebody, why not meet them and see what is going on first. You might be surprised at everything.
Heron September 19, 2012 at 12:58 AM
Who said we hated her?
Atom September 19, 2012 at 01:01 AM
Where do you get HATE from that...it's just apathy....

Anyone who shows up for this needs a whole team of shrinks.

It must be a slow news day!!

Regardless, everyone was still talking about this when I went back to the Midwest a few weeks ago. I had thought that this was much more of a Tri-State Area story. But I guess people can't get enough of her. Who knew...

These sad people are just desperate to acquire the pure golden tan of the Golden Lion Tamarin. Give it up, freaks. You'll never be able to resemble the GLT. Accept your third-class skin status and worship the godlike lustre of the GLT.

There was a time, not too long ago, when people avoided the sun and tanning. It was considered to be lower class to have tanned skin. It meant you worked outside as a laborer or field hand. Now you have upper and middle class women trying to look that way at the risk of skin cancer, it is pretty sad.

Wow, and here i thought a tan meant they were upper class snobby rich people that had time to lay out in the sun at the beach club all day.

Sounds like a great event. Dana is a great writer and intelligent person so I'm sure there's lots of valuable info that people need to hear.

Eventually she will relapse... Tanorexia is just impossible to beat.... During the summer you try to stay inside, or in a shady place... You may even try SPF 80 sunblock... But in the end those little Tanorexic addictions start to come back and you realize that you enjoy looking like a piece of beef jerky.. When you move around you miss hearing your skin crackle like old news paper... So you climb back in that hot tanning bed that 10 other people have been sweating in all day and just crank the dial up and roast.
