Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Will My Gleam Tan Last?
A Tan will last anywhere from 7-10 days, on average. The amount of physical activity, after care, and proper preparation for the tan are all factors of how many days one can expect their tan to last.
Will I Look Orange?
Never! Our professionally trained staff uses only the best organic products and equipment. We offer the highest quality, golden-brown results that won’t leave you smelling of chemicals or with an orange look.
What If I Have Very Fair Skin?
Airbrush technicians will custom blend a formulation specific to each client’s natural base color. However, if it is your first time tanning, or you have an extremely fair complexion, our trained technicians will recommend a tone to ensure satisfaction. Very fair complexed individuals may require a follow up session 12-24 hours later.
Is Spray Tanning Safe and approved by The FDA?
The active ingredient in self-tanning products is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years and was listed with the FDA in 1973. It is declared safe and suitable for use in cosmetics and used to color the skin. DHA is derived from glycerin (vegetable origin) which is a commonly used cosmetic and food ingredient. DHA is not absorbed into the body and poses no possibility of toxicity.
How Do I Prepare For My Tan?
Thoroughly exfoliate and shave prior to your treatment. Avoid wearing make up, moisturizers, and deodorant to your appointment, as this acts as a barrier to the spray and stops the color from developing properly.
Wear dark colored, loose fitting clothing and sandals following your treatment.
Wax and have a manicure and pedicure done BEFORE your treatment. You may also want to shower before your treatment as you can’t shower for 3-12hrs after the treatment. *(Depends on the tanning solution selected)
How Do I Maintain My Tan?
Do not shower or sweat for 3-12 hours following your appointment.
*(Depends on the tanning solution selected)
Moisturize using a paraben-free lotion at least twice daily for a minimum of one week. Keeping moisturized will ensure an even, flawless fade.
Gleam Tan After-Care Moisturizer is recommend for best results.
Avoid chlorinated Jacuzzis, saunas, and steam rooms.
