Airbrush Tanning FAQ

Do I still need to apply a sunscreen?

Yes, you do. The tanning solution does not provide any useful protection against harmful UV rays. Glow recommends the use of an approved SPF 30+ sunscreen 15 minutes prior to sun exposure.

What should I do after my tan has been applied?

The tan will develop within the first 2-3 hours. For the best possible results, you should avoid the following within the first 12 hours after application:
• Water
• Saunas / Spas
• Physical Exercise / Sweating
• Swimming
• Tight Fitting Clothing

What should I wear to the salon?

It is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing. The tanning solution, in most cases, will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light colored leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.

How do I prepare for my tan?

Glow recommends you cleanse and exfoliate your skin with oil free products prior to coming in for your tan. This will ensure the best possible result from your spray tan by eliminating the top layers of dry and dead skin. It is also best to avoid the use of deodorants and moisturizers that may inhibit the effectiveness of the tanning solution.

How long will my tan last?

Most people can expect their tan to last for up to 5 to 7 days depending upon your skin type and preparation. Some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. Regular moisturizing with one of our unique tan extenders will greatly extend the tan’s life.
