How long will my tan last?

Most people can expect their tan to last from 5 to 7 days and some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. That depends on upon your skin type and condition. We strongly recommend you follow our 3 P’s method of PREPARE, PROTECT and PROLONG under our TANNING TIPS section.

What should I wear?

It is totally up to you. It’s your choice how you want to look. If you want no tan lines then you are welcome to be “au naturale”. Or you can choose to wear your own underwear, swim suit or shorts, but please choose a dark colored suit or an old one. Otherwise, we can provide you with disposable underwear. We deal with all shapes, sizes and ages and our experienced technician will make you feel comfortable.

If you are visiting our studio, it is recommended that you wear loose and comfortable dark clothing. The tanning solution will not stain clothing and any slight rub-off should come out in the wash. However, some staining may occur on some light colored leather, acrylic or other sensitive fabrics.

How long does it take to be sprayed?

It takes approximately 15 minutes to get a perfect glowing tan. However, our professional technician will give you a full consultation and talk through your requirements and make you feel comfortable. We don’t believe in rushing. We have built up a solid clientele across Singapore due to our prescriptive, accurate and professional service. So please allow 30 minutes for your session.

Does spray tanning work on Asian skin tones?

Absolutely! Our spray tans are so popular with our Singaporean clients , that we were featured on BBC World News. Check it out here and listen to what our clients have to say first hand.

When we first started out, over six years ago, our service was mostly popular among the expatriate community. However times are changing and we have witnessed a phenomenal shift in the diversity of our clients as young Asians seek prestige and glamour in tanned skin. Today the majority of our clients are Asians who love how a spray tan evens out their skin tones, enhances their complexion and gives a healthy glow.

That is why, by popular demand and with years of trial and error, we created Asian Blend by GLOWTANIX. Specifically formulated for Asian skin tones using a unique blend of bronzers, our spray tan solution creates a flawless base and enhances natural features. We have a variety of shades to suit your own tone as featured in our iconic Tan Menu

Tanned skin is in!

Is it permanent?

Absolutely not. Have a read of the section “How does sunless tanning actually make your skin change?”. On average most people can expect their tan to last from 5 to 7 days and some may even keep their tan for up to 10 days. It fades naturally and evenly just like a sun tan returning your skin completely to its original color and tone.

Will I turn ORANGE!

Absolutely not at Tan@Home! There are plenty of tales and images in the media of the Orange Tango-Tan that probably still color some people’s perceptions of sunless tanning. There are 3 reasons for this and it’s usually due to an unskilled technician or cheap products:

1. There are many tanning solutions on the market and unfortunately many of them are cheaply made in China or use inferior DHA, the main ingredient. These cheap solutions are renowned to turn to you Orange. Our products are manufactured in Australia to the highest standard using only the best raw DHA sourced from the leading DHA producer in France and combined with organic oils and vitamins.

2. Even if you use the best tanning solution, applying the incorrect shade or concentration level for your skin type will turn you Orange. Understanding the impact of DHA on under-tones and mid-tones is a complicated formula. Our technicians are fully trained in skin analysis and esthetics to customize the right formula for your skin tone.

3. Applying the solution incorrectly or with cheap equipment will often result in Orange either by applying too much solution or uneven coverage. All our technicians are fully trained and we use state of the art salon professional Compressors and Spray guns.

Getting a bad tan from an unskilled technician can result in a disastrous Tango-Tan that you will be stuck with for at least 5 days. Don’t risk it! Tan@Home were the pioneers of spray tanning in Singapore over six years ago and have completed thousands of perfect tans.

WE GUARANTEE NO ORANGE

Is it safe?

Spray tanning is now the only way to tan safely. Your skin is not exposed to any harmful UV rays that cause damage. DHA (a colorless sugar) the active ingredient in tanning solutions is FDA approved and has been in use since 1960. Our GLOWTANIX solutions are manufactured in Australia to the highest standard using only the best raw DHA sourced from France and combined with organic oils and vitamins. They contain no dangerous Parabens or PEG found in some products.

Are your products 100% Organic?

Many tanning brands claim to be 100% Organic which is entirely false and misleading. It is widely known and documented that the main active ingredient DHA though a natural product derived from sugar can never be an organic product. To date no DHA company in the world has ever achieved an Organic Certification for their product.

Our GLOWTANIX products are formulated using only the best raw DHA sourced from France and then infused with Organic Coconut Oil, natural Aloe Vera and vitamins. We believe in 100% transparency to our clients and whilst we use Organic and Natural ingredients, we would be misleading our clients if we claimed to be 100% Organic.

Is it OK to spray your face?

Absolutely! Our experienced technician will give you the right spray tan to give you an even caramel skin tone or golden base; perfect for teaming with summer dresses, high heels and light make up. If your face often looks patchy and you usually wear a lot of foundation, a spray tan could be exactly what you need to slash your morning beauty regime in half! The extra colour will even out your skin so you can easily get away with less make up and more of the natural you! It is completely safe and we can provide nose-plugs if required.

What spray tanning solution do you use?

We know that one solution does not fit all! We use professional tanning solutions by GLOWTANIX as well as many other popular brands. All our solutions are 2 Hour Rapid Tans meaning you can wash them off after 2 hours and they will continue to develop over 24 hours.

After tanning thousands of clients in Singapore over the last six years and testing many different products we recognized there was a gap in the market for a professional product that was suited to the diversity of skin tones in Asia as well its unique climate. This led us on the quest to develop GLOWTANIX “Made in Australia – Enhanced for Asia” range of professional tanning solutions.

GLOWTANIX is manufactured in Australia to the highest standard formulated using only the best raw DHA sourced from France and then infused with Organic Coconut Oil, natural Aloe Vera and vitamins.

How does sunless tanning actually make your skin change?

It’s time to get scientific with a short chemistry lesson! The main ingredient in tanning solutions is Dihydroxyacetone (a.k.a. DHA) that is derived from sugar. So how does DHA work to induce the appearance of a tan? DHA actually acts on only the top 25% of the dead skin cells on the surface. The amino acids in this dead layer of skin react with the DHA in order to produce natural chemicals called melanoidins. The melanoidins produced by absorbing the DHA result in a visually tanning effect on the skin. The effect isn’t instantaneous. It take around 2-4 hour for the tanning effect to kick in, and it can continue to darken for as much as 48 hours even after you have washed it off. Because it’s the dead cells on the skin’s surface that it affect, the tan it induces can last for up to ten days, fading as these dead skin cells are shed just like a sun tan. The percentage of DHA determines how light or dark your skin will change.

There are plenty of tales of DHA tanning leading to bright orange or streaky tans which probably still color some people’s perceptions of sunless tanning. Thankfully with modern technology, the improved quality of DHA combined with a variety of bronzers and organic additives, that is a tale of the past. Our GLOWTANIX professional products are manufactured in Australia to the highest standard using only the best raw DHA sourced from France and combined with organic oils and vitamins. WE GUARANTEE NO ORANGE.
