Spray Tanning the Healthy Alternative
Quickly achieve a beautiful golden healthy-looking tan with natural and organic Spay Tan options from ECO Tan and Vani-T.
Worldwide consumers are looking for safe sunless tanning alternatives because let’s be honest; there is nothing better than waking up with a natural glow all year round! The active ingredient in sunless Organic and Toxic free products is called DHA or Dihydroxyacetone. It’s derived from cacao. DHA is a colourless substance that interacts with the dead cells located in the stratum corneum of the epidermis, and it doesn’t turn you orange. The TGA in Australia and the FDA in the USA have approved the use of DHA for tanning.
The application appointment takes our trained therapists approximately 30 – 45 minutes in the salon.
Both tans container a bronzer, so we can see it as we apply. The bronzer is a very natural colour, and you will leave the salon with a beautiful golden tan that will continue to develop in colour in the following hours.
How to Prepare for your Spray Tan?
Before you come into the salon, it is a good idea to have any shaving or waxing already done. When you have your shower the night or morning before your spray tan, make sure you scrub your elbows, knees, ankles, using an exfoliator if you have one, as this will prevent the tan over-absorbing into the dry areas of your skin.
What Happens at the Spa?
When you come to the spa, we will give you moisturiser to apply to the typically dry areas, like elbows, knees and ankles before we do the spray tan.
We also have disposable underwear, or you can go without, or you can wear your own if you prefer and we provide ‘sticky feet’ – to prevent the tan from getting on the bottom of your feet.
How long will it take for the tan to develop?
There are a few options, depending on the tanning brand you choose, you can shower 2-6 hrs after your spray tan, or you may select the overnight tan, that you would typically wear 12-15 hrs before showering.
Both tanning brands develop to very similar colour, and both offer natural golden brown tones or earthy brown tones.
Tanning Options At Glow
We have two options available for the spray tan; both are professional salon tanning brands, and we import both directly from Australia.
Vani-T Tan - One of the largest selling professional spray tans in Australia and used by many celebrities (Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Cheryl Cole, Kylie Minogue and many more), and is the preferred choice of many beauty editors, stylists, make-up artists and TV shows around the world
ECO Tan - One of Australia’s most popular tanning brands, it is Australia’s no. 1 certified organic tan and body care system
Both Vani-T Tan and ECO Tan are professional salon products, and both develop to a beautiful colour. The shades work with your natural skin tones and develop progressively (getting darker the longer you leave them on). Both have two-hour express tan options as well as overnight or 12-hour options.
What should I wear after the tan?
After your tan, it is best to wear something loose-fitting, like gym clothes. Ideally, long sleeves and long legs pants (like loose leggings) as this will protect your tan from any drops of rain or drips from AC units after you leave the salon.
Also, we suggest you have ‘flip flops’ to wear home for your feet.
How long will the tan last?
The tan usually lasts at least 7-10 days and 2-3 weeks (or more) when you use the gradual tan as an extender. We have gradual tan available for both brands at the salon.
Suitable for both Men and Women?
What does a spray tan cost?
A spray tan is $580, and we also have packages of five or ten sessions that bring the cost down to $560 per session.
