Tan safely this summer!
Why Choose Serenity Salon & Day Spa to get a custom spray tan?
When it comes to sunless tanning, no one wants to turn orange! It’s the first thing I hear from all of my guests who enter my room and I ask, “what color are you hoping to achieve today? ” I’m always pleased to tell them that we use the Norvell Sunless Tanning solution and they will be pleased with the results. Your custom spray tan is also being applied by a certified spray technician. It’s all about science … our pH levels on our skin are all different so the first thing we do before we apply any sunless solution is to spray our guests with a pH balancing spray. The spray neutralizes the pH levels on the skin. Those who are more acidic would have more of a chance to turn orange. So, we just plan to neutralize everyone before we apply the solution. It’s really important to use our post tan products to keep that pH level neutral while the solution is still on the skin for the next 5-7 days. It’s an investment and you want to keep the integrity of your tan lasting and looking great all week long! Here are some things to expect and questions you may have before your first spray tan visit to our salon and day spa.
- We use a product for natural color results for any skin type.
Formulations offering a beautiful instant bronze with a smooth transition to a natural DHA tan. Results are natural across a broad spectrum of skin shades and tones.
- Not Just A Tan, it’s a healthy skin treatment too.
Skin firming formula builds and restores the skins’ matrix, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The highly concentrated antioxidant blend combats daily skin damage.
- Lasting Results.
Clients can expect 5-7 days of gorgeous “just off the beach”TM color with proper maintenance. An even color fade ensures complete customer satisfaction.
24-48 Hours Prior To Session
- Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate.
We cannot overstress the importance of pre-session exfoliation. 24-hours prior to your appointment, clear away any dry, dead skin cells with a pH balancing scrub such as Norvell® Amber Sun TM Body Scrub. For extreme areas use a deep exfoliator such as Sea Coral Salt Scrub, no less that 24-hours prior to your session.
- Protect your skins pH levels.
Avoid using bar soaps, high pH shower products, or in shower moisturizers. These products can neutralize that DHA bronzing reaction within the skin. I always recommend our Norvell pH balancing cleanser.
- Hair Removal.
Any depilatory creams, waxing or shaving should be completed 24 hours prior to your session.
Day of session
- Don’t create sunless barriers.
Avoid applying anything to the skin that may act as a barrier between the sunless solution and the skin. Deep penetration of the solution is key to beautiful lasting color. Do not apply lotions, creams, or perfumes prior to session. Use deodorant sparingly.
- Remove any make-up prior to the sunless application.
- Arrive Prepared.
Wear loose fitting dark colored clothing and remove jewelry. Tight clothing can rub or smear bronzers, especially around the knees, elbows, chest and waist.
- Forget to exfoliate? Pressed for time?.
We recommend using our eXmitt® pre-tan body buff to instantly clear away any dead skin cells, clean the skin of any barriers and balance the pH level of the skins surface. Infused with our proprietary pH balancing formula, the eXmitt® is designed to gently exfoliate and buff the skin while accelerating DHA color development without the need for water.
I also highly recommend Norvell’s Endurance Bronzing lotion. It really helps your tan looking great even beyond the 7th day!
I hope you choose Serenity for the spray tan for your next special event. We do offer monthly memberships as well as packages. And remember, you will still want to use an SPF on your skin as the spray tan will not protect you from any harmful UV rays! Tan safe this summer and come see us!
