SPRAY | AIRBRUSH TANNING
Spray/Airbrush Tanning is a great way to add some warmth to the skin. Whether you are looking for a light, sun-kissed color or want to look like you spent the weekend in Cabo, a spray tan can deliver.
Things to know about a spray tan:
The main ingredient in spray tan solution is DHA or Dihydroxyacetone. This is a sugar molecule derived from beets. It reacts with the top of layer of dead skin cells to create a "tan" effect. It has been used since the 1930s for this purpose. Spray tan is safe for topical application. This newest solution is beautiful and derived from all organic ingredients!
Because the spray tan is on the outermost layer of skin and not deep in the melanin layer (like a suntan), a spray will last 5 to 10 days. Using the proper aftercare products will help the tan last as long as possible. Exfoliating beforehand ensures the freshest skin available to be tan. Thus, it will last longer.
A female technician will hand spray you. This ensures we can go to the contours of your body and go darker and lighter in the areas you prefer.
Women can be nude, bikini or thong. Men have to wear bottoms (small speedos, thongs, underwear and beach shorts are ok). Remember, whatever you wear will leave a tan line so be sure you like the shape. We do not provide disposable underwear as it doesn't leave a good tan line.
Exfoliate with a body scrub the day of or the day before your spray. We have a ton of great scrubs at Glow! Don't put lotion on unless your skin is so dry it's flaking, then a light layer is ok. Don't put any oil on. Sunscreen is fine. If you are getting sprayed in the AM, you can wear makeup. If it's the PM, you will need a clean face. We don't want you going to bed with makeup on.
Wear or bring loose clothes to your appointment. Women will be asked not to wear a bra for the rest of the day, so be prepared for that.
All beauty treatments except for shaving need to be done before a spray tan. Your spray tan should be the last beauty appointment of the week or day. Shaving the bikini area after a spray is preferred to before as shaving before can cause darkness in the hair follicles. This is not the case with waxing. All post-shaving should be done with a new razor.
The regular solution should be worn for 8 to 12 hours. The One Hour Solution can be washed off after 1, 2 or 3 hours and the tan will be fully developed after 24 hours. There is a $5 upgrade fee for the One Hour Solution. A general rule is, if you don't have to shower soon, just use the regular solution. If you must shower, then do the One Hour. The regular solution will give the most consistent results.
