Benefits of a Spray Tan

Spray tanning achieves tanned skin of any shade without the use of harmful sunbeds. There are so many sunbed users in Glasgow, but some users are unaware that skin cancer cases in Scotland have increased by more than 30% in the past decade. The NHS states that to cut your chances of getting melanoma, you should reduce your exposure to the sun and sunbeds.

Not all products used in salons have skin nourishing ingredients, but ours is 100% organic with Vitamins A, B5 and E too. Our solution has no harmful parabens, alcohol or oils which make your skin dry which results in a patchy tan that fades badly.

Tanned skin hides imperfections such as cellulite and bruises. It also contours the face and body giving the illusion of a more toned, slimmer physique as well as making your eyes and teeth appear brighter.

What shade of spray tan should I get?

Glasgow girls love their tans, so before any spray tanning treatment, your therapist will ask you what look you want to achieve. At Tropicoco you can have the choice of light, medium, dark and extra dark shades, but it’s always better to go for a lighter option rather than darker if you are hesitant to pick a colour.

If you have fair skin, light and medium shades are best. If you have olive skin, light, medium or dark are all good options for your colouring. If you are unsure, take a look at our gallery for help.

If you are planning to have tan applied before your wedding, we always recommend booking a trial tanning session at our conviently places tanning salon in Glasgow city centre, but make sure to only use light or medium shades.

Your therapist will be able to give you advice on which shade is appropriate for you based on your skin tone and the event that you are attending. For example, when it comes to spray tanning for weddings, holidays and other day time events, light to medium shades are best if you aren’t used to dark colours.

Dark shades are more appropriate for people who are used to dark tans or if they are a stage entertainer, or are going to a night time event.

What happens when I arrive for my tanning appointment?

Once you’ve arrived at our Glasgow tanning salon, you’ll be taken into our studio and your therapist will start your consultation. You’ll be asked if you have carried out the proper skin preparation (See below), if your skin has any dry areas and what shade you wish to achieve.

Your spray tanning therapist will leave the room and allow you to change in private. A dressing gown and protection for your feet and hair will be provided and once you have put them on your therapist will come into the room.

Standing in the drying booth your therapist will tell you what positions to go into so the tan hits every area of your body. You will then stand in the booth for a few minutes and your tan will be dry enough so you can put your clothes back on comfortably and hit Glasgow’s shops without feeling sticky!

What do I wear during my spray tan?

You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, Whether that be with pants or bra on or off. Some of our clients feel more comfortable with shorts on or a bikini, which is completely fine. If you don’t like the thought of tan lines, thongs or undressing completely is advised.
