The Glow Series: UV-TherapyServices
We all want to achieve that healthy glow. The problem most of us have is knowing exactly how and where to start. Whether you prefer UV-Therapy, Sunless Spray Tans, or a cocktail of both, Planet Beach has got you covered! In this 3-part series I will walk you through the best practices of all 3 options!
Today, we’re diving into UV-Therapy. Indoor UV-Therapy allows you to experience a healthy, refreshed glow as your entire body approaches new horizons in health and beauty. Achieve that sought-after glow with one of Planet Beach’s many levels of UV-Therapy services. Designed to help you look great and feel even better, researchers are finding that exposure to UV light has many positive psychological and physiological effects including increased production of brain’s mood-lifting chemical, serotonin, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, increasing muscular strength, increasing sex hormones, and much more!
But let’s talk about the glow! The results you will achieve are comparable to a day in the sun with less risk! Here are some tips from your partners in beauty, Planet Beach to ensure the healthiest looking glow.
-Prep Your Skin! It’s best to shower, shave, and exfoliate a day or two before your UV session. Exfoliating helps prepare your skin. Planet Beach’s Buff or Scrub are great exfoliation options and are all natural!
-Apply indoor tanning lotion evenly in a circular motion and over all areas of the body. Using the right skin care products is the best way to extend the life of your tan! Planet Beach offers bronzers and intensifiers specially formulated for indoors. Note that lotions not made for indoors can cause damage to the UV beds and don’t help develop your tan. Ask one of our knowledgeable Spa Consultants to assist you in finding the right ones for you!
-Wear eyewear! It’s required by law since UV rays can be harmful to eyes. No, sunglasses don’t count! Your Planet Beach location can get you set up with your very own set of goggles to bring with you for every session.
-Using a tanning extender is the best way to ensure long-lasting results. We offer an array of products that can hydrate your skin and help you keep your glow longer! Our Infuse is an amazing daily moisturizer with ingredients that not only moisturize but assist in the production of melanin, which is what gives you that long-lasting brown color!
– Lastly, use our other services! We have other services to assist you in looking and feeling your best while keeping that golden glow! One being Hydro-Derma Fusion. This is a 20-minute. skin conditioning system that can be paired with UV, Sunless sprays, or other spa services to enhance results. It infuses your skin with revitalizing moisture aromatherapy. Infrared heat and steam ensure longer-lasting results! Another service you shouldn’t go without is Red light therapy. Since the red-light therapy brings blood to the surface of your skin it produces a better tan through increased oxidation of melanin not to mention the increased production of collegian and elastin for more even, youthful skin tone!
