Keep Calm And Tan

Tanning on the beach can be quite stressful. You can hear the people next to you talk about changing the baby’s diapers, or kids shrieking while little brother pours sand down big sister’s two-piece. You can also smell the aroma of cigarette smoke wafting into your personal bubble.

For a calmer way to get that bronze glowing skin, opt for spray tanning.

Lying under the sun to get a tan is not good for your skin. So make the healthy, more sensible choice. We promise you won’t have any harsh chemicals to make your skin look leathery.

Our system is all natural. There are no parabens, preservatives, alcohols, perfumes, or oil.

It’s quick, easy and quiet with no cigarette smoke, stinky diapers or madcap kids.

And best of all? No risk of skin cancer.

Why Risk It?

Why Risk It?

We’re sure she didn’t mean to get that lobster look. She was probably having fun and forgot to re-apply.

Oh dear…she’s going to pay for that mistake for years to come. We love the sun, too, but let’s face it. Too much of a sun thing is dangerous.

Why risk it? Get your spray tan with us today. You won’t have to worry about nasty chemicals that make your skin look weathered and old (a lot like the sun!).

St Tropez is an all natural spray tan that actually gives you a healthy even tan without the misery of a Mr. Crispy look.

And you never have to worry about your tan turning orange. That was so 1972. We guarantee it!

Should You Get A Base Tan Before Going To The Beach?

Should You Get A Base Tan
Before Going To The Beach?

We’re known worldwide as the “sunburnt” country, and it’s no wonder. Australia has the highest melanoma rate in the world.

That’s why so many people think that getting a base tan from a solarium is a good thing.

It isn’t.

The Skin Cancer Foundation states that, “indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74% more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors.” (www.skincancer.org)

Tanning beds are so bad that New South Wales and Brazil have banned them. The UK, Germany, Scotland, France, and several other states in Canada have banned them for people younger than 18.

The truth is a tan is an injury to the skin. Repeated tanning sets you up for skin cancer and premature aging.

Why chance it?

Opt for a spray tan instead. You can get a nice even tan in just minutes—and it lasts for a week!

You have no worries of melanoma, premature wrinkling, or developing any of the other many cancers associated with tanning.

Then when you’re in the sun, use plenty of sunscreen and wear a hat.

Don’t forget to use your antioxidant serum for double the protection!

We once thought that solariums were the “safe” alternative to baking in the sun. Now we know better. Malignant melanoma, the least common but most deadly form of skin cancer, is an established risk factor with tanning beds.But now it seems that this dangerous method for getting an even, bronzed glow also increases the risk of non-melanoma cancers. You can read it about it here.

That’s why we’re glad to see so many of our clients turning away from artificial and sun baking. Our safe, natural spray tan has no:

  •  Deadly chemicals
  •  Alcohols
  •  Perfumes
  •  Oils
  •  Nasty parabens

In fact, St. Tropez purifies their own water to ensure only the purest products ever touch your skin!

It’s a lovely, safe way to get just the right amount of golden glow you want without the worry. Sweet!

Are Tanning Beds The New Asbestos? By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Tanning beds have been around for a long time. We once thought they were the safer alternative to lying out in the sun. Now research has shown a direct relationship between melanoma and non-melanoma cancers with tanning bed usage.

Worldwide, health organizations are sounding the alarm; tanning beds are a number one carcinogen equivalent to asbestos. You can read more about it here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-02-04/nsw-bans-solariums/3811454

That’s why we offer safe, all natural spray tanning as an alternative to both to the sun and to tanning beds. With absolutely:

  •  no harsh chemicals
  •  no parabens
  •  no preservatives
  •  no alcohols 
  •  no oils

You don’t have to worry about cancerous ANYTHING with St. Tropez. Feel good about getting a tan. Do it the smart way!

5 Tips For Getting The Perfect Spray Tan! By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005

Getting ready to get your spray tan on? Fabulous! We love it when our clients treasure their skin as much as we do.

To help you get the most natural looking tan ever, we’ve got 5 easy tips for you. Follow these and we promise you’ll be the envy of all your friends.

Lightly exfoliate your body for three days prior. This will get off all the old skin and allow your tan to easily penetrate newer skin for a smooth look.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Give your skin plenty of moisture prior to the spray tan application. This will allow even saturation of the product. Results? Beautiful and longer lasting!

If you shave your legs, do it the night before your appointment. Shaving right after your tan can shorten the life of it. Same goes for waxing; do it a day or two before your session.

Skip perfume, deodorant, or body sprays. Don’t wear anything that could be a barrier resulting in stains or spots.

Wear loose dark clothing. On the day of the spray tan, make sure to wear old clothing, preferably dark. The spray tan will come off on your clothes. It wouldn’t hurt to wear old pajamas to bed that night, either.

Remember, you don’t want to get near water for 8 hours after the application to allow the tan to set.

You’re all set! Now see if your friends can guess which beach you’ve just been to!

You know the drill.
Apply tanning lotion, bake and listen to the people next to you talk about changing the baby’s diapers…

Or listen to kids shriek while little brother pours sand down big sister’s two-piece.

Or smell the aroma of cigarette smoke wafting into your neutral zone.

It’s never going to change, but you can. Tanning isn’t really all that good for your skin, but you can still enjoy the look of it. Make the healthy, sensible choice.

Spray tanning.
We promise you won’t have any harsh chemicals to make your skin look leathery. And you won’t have to worry about some study years down the road proving that spray tanning should be banned…like tanning beds!

Our system is all natural. There are no parabens, preservatives, alcohols, perfumes, or oil. St. Tropez has one of the world’s highest purity ratings for spray tans.

And it’s quick, easy and quiet with no cigarette smoke, stinky diapers or madcap kids.

But best of all? No risk of skin cancer.

Tan the smart way. Call us today.
