HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT? Preparation is essential to a flawless tan. We recommend that you purchase a prep kit prior to your appointment. This kit includes an exfoliating mitt, moisturizing body wash, buttercream moisturizer and step-by-step prep and aftercare instruction. The kit is $28 and can be purchased here.
Here are some additional tips: + Shower at least two hours in advance of your appointment as some natural oils in your skin provide a better result. Shave and exfoliate your skin well during your shower. + Do not apply makeup or deodorant (or remove at your appointment). + Bring loose clothing to put on after your spray. Leggings are not recommended. + Remove all jewelry prior to your appointment.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SOLUTION YOU USE? It is our job to ensure your are sprayed with the perfect solution. This will be decided at your appointment.
WHAT DO I WEAR? Wear as much or as little clothing during the spray as you like, keeping tan lines in mind.
WILL THE SOLUTION STAIN MY CLOTHES OR BED SHEETS?
Solution typically washes out of fabric without issue. We recommend wearing dark/older undergarments during the service just to be safe. Solution should not get on sheets unless you sweat. If this occurs, it's our experience that is washes out just fine.
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST? With diligent prep and aftercare, your spray will last approximately 7-10 days.
HOW LONG AFTER MY SPRAY BEFORE I CAN SHOWER?
With "The Original Glo", which is the recommended service, you need to wait at least 12 hours to rinse the solution off. At first shower, a warm water rinse is recommended followed by your full shower routine after 24 hours.
If you are in a time crunch, you can select "The Rapid Glo" which processes in approximately 4 hours allowing you to do a warm water rinse sooner, if needed, and apply your lotion or cosmetics for an event.
To prevent streaking, avoid getting wet or sweating until your processing time has passed.
HOW DO I EXTEND THE LIFE OF MY TAN AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE? Your skin naturally exfoliates itself every 7-10 days so this is why a spray tan typically lasts about this long. During this time, avoid using scrubs and loofas and use a new razor to shave. Patting dry after a shower also helps. As certain oils in lotions and soaps will strip or streak your color, keep your skin hydrated with salon-approved moisturizer.
DO I STILL NEED TO WEAR SUNSCREEN WITH A SPRAY TAN? YES. Always use sunscreen for protection from harmful UV-rays.
WILL CHLORINE AND/OR SALTWATER AFFECT MY TAN? While Glo sprays many clients for vacations, chlorine and salt water can affect tan longevity. Most customers are choosing to spray anyway for vacation so they have color for those first days in their bathing suits and shorts!
WHAT IS THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN SOLUTION? DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient in the spray tanning solution. It is a colorless chemical derived from glycerin that interacts with amino acids in the skin cells to produce a browning color change to the skin. The FDA authorizes external use of this ingredient for cosmetic purposes.
CAN I SPRAY TAN IF I AM PREGNANT? If you are pregnant or think that you may be, it is always recommended that you consult with your physician prior to getting a spray tan.
IS SPRAY TANNING SOLUTION ORGANIC? It is impossible to find 100% organic solution, however, the solutions Glo has chosen to use are over 99% organic and derived from natural ingredients.
