The Process

We want you to love your tan... follow these steps to make sure you walk away with the perfect glow!

Step 1: Exfoliation

A sunless tan is produced on the epidermis or outer layer of the skin and is subject to the normal skin-shedding cycle, about 15 days. Therefore at any time, dead cells on the epidermis are ready to slough off while other parts may be freshly renewed. The use of an exfoliate provides a consistent, fresh layer of skin to serve as the base for a sunless tan. Exfoliation should be performed before a sunless tanning session. There are many effective exfoliates on the market. However, many will degrade the tan and create a barrier with oils. We highly recommend choosing an oil-free exfoliate or, better yet, preparing your own mixture of rolled oats and brown sugar as a natural exfoliate. Another natural exfoliate is baking soda and a exfoliate cloth.

Step 2: Sunless Spray tanning Process


The Original, Winter Glow and Gimme Brown Sunless Tan solution takes about 8 hours to fully develop, thus the first shower is recommended no sooner than 8 hours after application at which time you can then moisturize. 

The NEW “City Collection” starts to develop within 30 minutes and you can shower within 4 hours and apply moisturizer. Most of the bronzer will wash off in the first shower (don’t panic, I did the first time), this will reveal the developed DHA tan beneath.  Do not be afraid to wash that bronzer off (but don’t exfoliate)! Your tan is waiting for you underneath. Then pat yourself dry, moisturize. 


Step 3: Moisturizing

The active ingredient in sunless tanning solutions, DHA, has a drying effect. Proper moisturizing after the spray tan offsets this effect and prolongs the skin renewal cycle, resulting in a long lasting, sunless tan. Moisturize twice a day with alcohol-free lotion. Shea butter is preferred. We have products that work with the treatment, created specifically for sunless tanning.

After showering, feel free to apply moisturizer. Hydrated skin retains the tan longer. Avoid lotions that contain alpha hydroxyl. Avoid exfoliating skin and hair removal products. When showering, use your hand instead of a washcloth. Taking long, hot baths or soaking in the pool can accelerate exfoliation and fade your tan.
EVENLY MOISTURIZED SKIN IS THE SECRET TO THE PERFECT HEALTHY GLOW SPRAY TAN!

FAQ

Please read through our Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the tan session take?

The tanning session is completed within 15 minutes.

Is spray tanning safe?

Yes, this is the safest way to achieve a golden tan. It’s safer than tanning beds and exposing your body to UV rays. It’s easier and faster than store bought tanning cream and it will assist in hydrating your skin. DHA is a sugar cane derivative that results in the tan and was approved by the FDA in 1973. When applied to the skin, DHA penetrates only the top layer of skin- it does not absorb into the body or bloodstream.

What is the tanning solution made up of?

The tan solution contains 2 major ingredients, DHA and Bronzer. DHA is not absorbed into the body and poses no possibility of toxicity and is FDA and Health Canada approved. It is not a dye; it works with the amino acids in the top layer of your skin to produce a natural tan exactly like the sun, but without the damage. The bronzer is the initial colour you see when the tan is first applied giving an indication of the colour your skin will be. The bronzer will wash off during the 1st shower and the tan underneath is often lighter than the bronzer.

Do I prepare my skin before the appointment?

Yes, waxing, pedicures and facials should be done at least one day prior to your tanning session. Exfoliation should be done 24 hours prior to tanning. Use a body scrub, paying special attention to elbows, knees and heels. Your skin needs to be completely free of moisturizing cream, deodorant, make-up and perfume. For best results, please ensure you wax or shave 1 day before your session. Hair removal should be done 24 hours prior to tanning to allow the pores enough time to close.

What is the best time to get a tan before an event?

We suggest 1-3 days prior to the event.

Will the Solution Cause an Allergic Reaction?

Healthy Glow sunless solutions are hypoallergenic.

Do your products test on Animals?

Absolutely not… We are entirely cruelty free.

Will it stain my clothes and sheets?

If your clothes or sheets have a little bronzer on them not to worry… The bronzer is completely water soluble and will wash out of clothes and sheets.

How often do I need to do it?

To maintain a deep tan we recommend every two weeks, if you want to be darker you can tan more frequently.

What should I wear?

We recommend that you wear loose clothing immediately following your tan, until your first shower. Also girls we recommend no bra after your tan is applied. During the tan session we

How long before I can Shower?

The  Sunless Tan solution takes no more than 8 hours to fully develop, thus the first shower is recommended no sooner than 8 hours after application at which time you can then moisturize.  The NEW “City Collection” starts to develop within 30 minutes and you can shower within 4 hours.

For best results refrain from:

No Showering or rinsing (or doing the dishes or getting pet licks) for least 8 hours after you tan. If the spray tan gets wet during the initial darkening process in the first 8 hours, there will be imperfections in the finished look. Avoid long or excessively hot showers or baths; this may shorten the length of your tan. Pat your skin dry after bathing or showering. Chlorine in pools and spas may also shorten the life of your tan.

How long will my tan last?

The tan will last 5-10 days. For best results, moisturize generously the day before your tan and then twice a day after the application.

Should I tan if I'm pregnant or nursing?

If you are pregnant or nursing, it is in your best interest to seek the advice of your physician, as Healthy Glow insists on having a letter from your doctor approving your spray tan treatment.
