Spray Tanning, a Healthy Tanning Bed Alternative

The reason why our skin darkens after a tan is because it’s our body’s way to protect ourselves from harmful UV exposure. This is why, UV radiation, whether it’s from a tanning bed or the sun, poses a serious health risk. Not only does it cause premature skin aging, it also increases the risk of skin cancer. For this reason, the government of Saskatchewan has banned tanning beds for youth under 18. However, the good news is that you can still have a glowing tan without putting your health at risk.

Tanning Bed Alternative

There are various alternatives to tanning beds, but not all of them are equally safe. So let me give you a quick rundown as to why our sunless spray tanning service is a healthier choice. First of all, the products we use are scent free, nut allergy free, vegan and cruelty free. Most importantly, they contain no paraben, which is a class of potentially harmful preservatives often used in cosmetics. Secondly, we use professional spray tanning solutions from AG Sunless that are formulated for all skin types. Did I mentioned the creator of AG Sunless is also a local Regina business babe? Not only are our products safer, you’d also be supporting local.

Spray Tanning In the Past

Still not convinced about spray tanning? You’re probably thinking about the orange look we used to rock about ten years ago, we’ve all been there. Remember those spray booths that talked and instructed you to close your eyes and turn? Then after stepping out, you’d be disappointed by all the missed spots, and the colour that left you feeling like you just auditioned for the Willy Wonka movie. Fortunately, sunless tanning has come a long way since then, let me explain our process…

Our Sunless Tanning Process

Upon your arrival, we will pick the best suited solution for your skin tone and type based on the tanning results you want to achieve. You will then step into our beautiful sunless tanning booth, which has air vents that suck away any fallout spray. Our trained technician will then carefully apply the tan using a custom spray tanning gun to ensure no tricky places are missed. Once the tan is complete, we will send you away not only with a bombshell glow, but also a care instruction to keep your tan looking its absolute best afterwards.

Summary

Tans don’t have to be just for photoshoots, weddings and special events. Similar to getting our hair or makeup done, tanning is just like makeup for the skin. They can be for those days when you just want to pick yourself up or to feel pretty. However, you shouldn’t risk your health in the pursuit of looking or feeling better. Our sunless tanning service is a healthier alternative to tanning beds. So if you need a tan, get in touch with us and let’s get you GLOWING.
