It's been a long and miserable icy cold winter in the northeast, so how is it that Melissa Gorga looks like she's been spending all her time at the beach? Before you get too jealous over thoughts of her vacationing in Hawaii, the truth is you can also achieve her February glow for a small price. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star recently revealed that she can thank a spray-tan joint for her year-round glow.

Melissa took to Twitter to give props to her sprayer.

"Stopped by @SizzleTan_NJ & had my favorite sprayer @steven_festa give me a little glow;-) #justatouch," Melissa admitted.

Spray tanning is way safer for your skin than tanning beds and booths, so we think she's making the right choice. It's also better for you than sitting out in the actual sun. If you go to a good place, they can give you a streak-free tan that will last you a week or two and you will look amazing! It's a great way to feel great during the bleak winter months, when the last thing you want is to look "pasty."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey have a long history with Sizzle Tan, so we're guessing Melissa gets a pretty sweet discount. Both Melissa and her hubby, Joey Gorga, have modeled for the Jersey salon in the past. Joey even had a huge billboard posing for the company.

Teresa Giudice also did an on-camera ad for Sizzle Tan back in 2010.
