HOW DOES GLO WORK?
Once inside the portable tent set up in-home or at the GloStudio, your body will be sprayed with a solution that contains a certain percentage of DHA (DiHydroxyAcetone) a colorless sugar which reacts with the amino acids on the top layer of your skin and over a period of a few hours turns a golden brown – into a natural looking tan. DHA is FDA approved, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.
WILL MY SKIN TURN ORANGE?
Nope – You will not turn orange! We guarantee it! It’s an impossibility due to the face that Glo Mobile Tanning uses high quality products and our techs are all meticulously trained. We customize the solution used depending on the clients skin tone and what the client wishes the end result to look like… a lighter tan, medium, or darker looking tan. Whatever color you choose, the end result will be a golden natural looking tan.
SHOULD I EXFOLIATE BEFORE THE TANNING?
Absolutely, exfoliation before your spray tan will help your tan to last as long as possible. It is best to exfoliate 24-48 hours before your appointment. We are happy to recommend several great exfoliation products if you’d like. See spray tanning tips for more suggestions on how to make your GLO last longer.
WHERE DO YOU SET UP THE TANNING TENT AT A MOBILE APPOINTMENT?
We come to you with a small pop-up tent and a small duffel bag. We can set up in a bedroom, bath-room, or any other room you feel most comfortable (and warm). We are in and out in about 20 min or less.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SPRAY TAN ME?
It takes about 3-5 minutes. We just need a few minutes to set up, ask you a few questions so we can customize your color, then fold up the tent after you are sprayed. The entire appointment takes about 20 min. or less
At the GloStudio it is a 15 min. appointment
WILL I END UP WITH OVER-SPRAY ON MY CARPET OR WALLS?
Nope – Our portable spray tanning booth that is set up in your home will catch all, if any, overspray that can occur. You will never even know we were there, except that you are left with a sexy GLO of course.
WILL I LOOK UMM, STRANGE… WILL PEOPLE KNOW I HAVE BEEN SPRAY TANNED?
Trust me, we’ll find exactly the right shade for your skin. If you want your tan to be so dark that everyone will notice and ask you where you’ve been vacationing, we can certainly do that. On the other hand, if you’d rather be more subtle, we can give you a look that is stunning without screaming out. You will have a natural looking GLO, and we guarantee you’ll be thrilled with how it looks!
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
About 7-10 days. When you are spray tanned the active ingredient is called DHA (DiHydroxyAcetone) which is derived from sugar cane and essentially bonds to the top layer of your skin. How you take care of your skin before and during your GLO can determine how long your tan will last as well as how it fades. Doing simple things like applying lotion twice a day and blotting off instead of toweling off after showers can help prolong the life of your GLO. See spray tanning tips for more suggestions on how to make your GLO last longer.
CAN I INVITE MY FRIENDS?
Yes! – Invite your friends over and have a GLO-out party. Special discounts are available if you “bring a friend”
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Females can wear anything or nothing. Whatever you are comfortable with. If you decide to wear something just keep those tan lines in mind if you’ll be wearing a swimsuit, formal dress, or costume. Males can wear anything as long as they wear something. Most males choose to wear their underwear or compression shorts.
WILL SWIMMING FADE MY TAN?
Yes. Soaking in any water will fade your tan. Chlorine pools and hot tubs will noticeably fade your tan. If you are spending time on the beach remember to keep your skin hydrated!
WILL GETTING A SPRAY TAN PROTECT ME FROM GETTING SUN BURNED?
Absolutely not. You will still get sunburned or tan as you normally would without a spray tan. Protect that skin and wear your sunscreen!
