Tan Mom Patricia Krentcil appears in a series of online videos promoting a new book, “The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin.” WATCH VIDEO BELOW
Her nightclub act may have tanked, but New Jersey’s notorious “tan mom” has a new plan to strike gold: peddling skin care tips online.
Patricia Krentcil is the star of a new series of Web videos produced by Westchester skin-care guru Dana Ramos, who is on a media blitz to promote a new book, “The Skin Regime: Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin.”
The leather-faced Nutley resident made headlines earlier this year after she was arrested for allegedly taking her 6-year-old daughter tanning.

Krentcil called the charges half-baked, but has since professed to have seen the UV light on the ills of serial tanning.
In the first video, titled “Tanning Mom Gets a Peel Treatment,” Ramos shows up at Krentcil’s home and immediately tosses all her tanning products in the garbage.
“Sunscreen!” Ramos crows, handing a tube of SPF to her copper-colored new spokeswoman.
“I’m not thrilled,” Krentcil sighs. “But I’m going to do it because I’m 44 and I want my face to look more natural. And this, if anything, will help that.”
Ramos then applies a potent skin cleanser and moisturizer before wrapping up the session and vowing to return in a few weeks.
“Pretty soon there is going to be a beautiful new you,” Ramos tells Krentcil, as the two share a hug by the door.
“I’m already beautiful,” Krentcil quips.
Krentcil’s daughter makes a cameo in the second video, entitled “Adorable Anna,” which shows Ramos giving the strawberry-haired tyke a pep talk about avoiding tanning beds.
Meanwhile, tan mom reports that friend are loving her new and improved look.
“Everyone…they say, ‘You look pretty,’” she coos.
Reps for Ramos’ book say Krentcil has cleaned up her act since a disastrous appearance at a New York nightclub last month.
At that show, “tanked mom” was a more accurate moniker, as Krentcil stumbled, slurred her words and guzzled red wine on stage.
Krentcil will debut her makeover at a book signing with Ramos in Mount Kisco, in Westchester, at 7 p.m. on Friday.
Twenty percent of the book’s proceeds will benefit the Skin Cancer Foundation.
