Q: How does spray tanning differ from UV beds and sunbathing?
While there are many differences when comparing spray tanning to UV beds and sunbathing, the biggest factor is safety and health! Many people are turning to spray tanning to get that beautiful bronzed look because it is MUCH safer than the alternative. UV beds have been around for decades and have been linked to skin cancer, including melanoma (the deadliest type of skin cancer), as has sunbathing.
If that isn’t enough, premature aging is a HUGE factor when it comes to tanning in the sun and in UV beds. Unprotected exposure to UV rays has been known to break down the fibers and collagen in the skin causing loosened folds and wrinkles. Sunburns and hours of sun exposure also result in permanent dark spots, leathery texture of the skin and permanent darkening of the skin as well.
The side effects of UV exposure may not show until years after a sunburn or suntan so avoiding UV exposure is essential to keeping your skin beautiful and healthy!
Q: Will I turn orange? Will I be too dark?
The great thing about choosing Slay Beauty Bar is that all of the tans we do are customized to each individuals’ needs. All of our tanning technicians are certified and are educated on customizing each client’s tan based upon their skin type and needs!
Prior to your organic spray tan, we will conduct a brief consultation to ensure that we understand what type of tan you are trying to achieve and we will get some history regarding your skin type. Based upon the information you give us, we create a tan specifically for YOU that will allow us to get you the perfect light, medium or dark tan that you want without turning you orange or too dark of a color.
We want you to look and feel great when we leave your appointment! We ask all clients to take a look in the mirror prior to us leaving so that we can make sure they LOVE what they see! The greatest compliment we can get is a referral from YOU and we know that when our client’s love their tan that is exactly what they do: refer their friends and family to us!
Q: How long will my spray tan last for?
Depending on your skin, how light or dark you want your customized tan to be and how well you take care of your skin after your tan, it can last approximately one to two weeks.
Many customers purchase our organic and vegan products we have available to extend the length of their tan! Our tan extending lotion is our most popular product; this daily moisturizer is safe for ALL skin types and tones and has an anti-aging solution that smoothes the skin! It contains a natural brown color that is matched with our spray tanning solution to lengthen the life of your tan! We also bring our body wash to each appointment. Most retail products on the market remove your tan but our acidic-free body wash is gentle on the skin and will keep your tan from stripping off of your skin! Using both of these products will allow your tan to stay on for up to three weeks!
Q: Why should I get my spray tan done by Slay Beauty Bar?
For a variety of reasons! First off, our focus here at Positively Tan is HEALTH. We use organic, vegan, paraben-free products that have NOT been tested on animals and are PETA approved! Having worked at a tanning salon, I quickly learned about the disadvantages of UV tanning beds and educated myself on how harmful they are for our skin! I wanted to steer away from the unhealthy risks that UV beds and the sun possess and turn to a healthy alternative that still allowed clients to have that beautiful, natural looking tan that we all want! After much research I found that airbrush spray tanning was the answer I had been looking for!
I have always wanted to find a career in which I could help empower women to feel beautiful while enhancing their health and overall confidence. Our organic products not only give a beautiful glow but also leave skin feeling silky and smooth! I take absolute pride in what I do because I can see that I am making a difference in my client’s life even if it is for just that moment that they first look in the mirror and have an instant confidence boost! I love meeting new people and I have been so fortunate to be able to combine my passion with work while making a difference in my client’s day!
I wanted to take a positive approach to something so simple, but yet, so meaningful to many women. It is important to value ourselves and influence the people around us in a positive manner which is why I chose to start this business. Positivity is contagious and that is exactly what I plan to deliver to each client I am fortunate to get to meet!
