WHAT IS DHA?
The active ingredient in most sunless tanning products is known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple non-toxic sugar, which gained FDA approval 1973. DHA is the active ingredient that gives your skin a golden brown color. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the skin, the DHA begins interacting with the amino acids and proteins on the top layer of skin. During this process, a color change begins taking place and a suntanned appearance is produced.
WHAT SOLUTION DOES GLOWJOB STUDIO USE?
After extensive research and after training with various celebrity tanners, we chose a solution that uses only the finest quality certified DHA (ECOCERT) . This solution is moisturizing and contains anti-aging ingredients. This is a long lasting solution that has an amazing fade. All blends are Organic paraben, formaldehyde, petrochemical and gluten free. Full ingredient list is available upon request.
IS YOUR SOLUTION 100% ORGANIC?
No tanning product can be 100% organic due to the active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone. However our products are paraben-free, gluten-free, 100% vegan, cruelty-free, safe to be used by pregnant or nursing mothers, and organic-based.
WHAT DO I WEAR DURING MY TANNING SESSION?
Bra/underwear, swimwear, or nude. Whatever you are most comfortable with.
MY TAN ISN’T DARK ENOUGH AFTER I RINSED, WHAT DO I DO?
Wait 24 hours for it to fully develop after rinsing. If it’s still not dark enough, you can respray over it.
I AM TOO DARK, WHAT DO I DO?
Try rinsing again, soak with baby oil in a bathtub, or sit in a sauna/jacuzzi. These methods will remove some of the bronzer to lighten the color.
CAN I STILL TAN OUTSIDE?
Yes! The most important thing to remember is that the solution does not contain any UV protection/sunscreen. You will still be able to develop a tan naturally in the sun.
MY SKIN IS PEELING, CAN I STILL GET A SPRAY TAN?
NO! You will be blotchy.
WILL JACUZZIS, POOLS, OR SAUNAS REMOVE MY TAN?
Yes, it will remove the majority of the tan and/or lighten it. Seawater, chlorine, and hot tubs can accelerate the fading of the tan. I recommend wearing waterproof sunscreen to help repel the water.
CAN I TAN IF I’M PREGNANT?
DHA is FDA approved and only penetrates the outermost layer of the skin. There is no evidence that DHA is harmful. However, we do recommend that you consult with your physician first.
CAN I TAN IF I’M BREASTFEEDING?
Yes, as long as you wear nipple covers.
CAN I TAN IF I JUST HAD SURGERY?
Not unless you are completely healed.
CAN I TAN IF I JUST GOT A TATTOO?
Only if the area is completely healed.
CAN MY TEENAGER OR MINOR TAN?
Yes, with a parent’s consent along with a signed waiver.
I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN, CAN I STILL TAN?
We recommend scheduling a patch test prior to coming in for a full tan.
I HAVE ECZEMA AND/OR PSORIASIS, CAN I STILL TAN?
Normally yes, but a waiver will need to be signed prior to getting spray tanned.
WILL SPRAY TANNING STAIN MY BED SHEETS, CLOTHES, AND/OR DRESS?
Yes, the first few days minimum bronzer might minimally rub off on your clothes etc. But, most bronzer does come off in the wash.
I HAVE AN EVENT, WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
The best time to get sprayed before any event is 2-3 days prior.
HOW SOON AFTER MY SESSION CAN I WORK OUT?
Please wait 16 -24 hours and you should rinse off prior to working out. This will wash away any remaining bronzer – the cosmetic portion of your spray tan.
HOW LONG WILL MY SPRAY TAN LAST?
The length of your tan depends on the maintenance afterwards. Most people notice their tan begin to fade after about 5-7 days. Moisturizing and staying hydrated are two important factors as well.
ARE YOU INSURED?
Yes, GlowJob Studio has full liability insurance and is fully licensed to operate under an LLC.
WHY DO YOU REQUIRE A WAIVER PRIOR TO SERVICE?
We require a waiver to ensure that the client is fully aware of the product and service we provide and that they do not have any reason to not be able to receive a spray tan.
ARE YOU CERTIFIED?
Yes, Claire Esposito has been personally trained and multi-certified by the top names in the industry including celebrity tanners Isabel Alysa of Dolce Glow, Bronze Me Babyy (Unfiltered Sunless color theory), and the amazing Fabiola Trujillo of Sobe Tan Academy. She is also certified through Norvell University and has been mentored by various master airbrush technicians in the industry.
DO YOU CLEAN ALL OF YOUR SUPPLIES AFTER EACH SPRAY TAN?
Yes, we disinfect our tent, brushes and spray gun. Also, we launder towels after each use and throw away any single-use items immediately. We use extraction fans in our studio and clean out all filters on a regular basis.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT SPRAY TAN “COLOR” TO CHOOSE?
We will help you decide on the best solution and/or tone for you the day of your spray tan.
