Get Ready for Your Next Event with the Celsius SPA

Thinking about doing a sunless tan before your next big event or vacation? Preparation is key for ideal results.

Before Using the Celsius S.P.A.

  • Exfoliating with a high quality scrub and/or loofah is recommended prior to using the Celsius S.P.A. Removing loose, dead & dry skin cells which prevent even application of sunless solution will improve and extend your results. Celsius Tannery has a specially designed Exfoliator available for purchase designed to work specifically with the Celsius S.P.A.
  • Upon arrival at the salon, your skin should be clean and dry.  Do not apply deodorant, perfume, make-up or lotion prior to your Celsius S.P.A. experience. It is also recommended you shave prior to using the Celsius S.P.A. to extend your results.
  • For best results, wear loose, dark clothing.
  • Remove jewelry prior to your Celsius S.P.A. experience for even application.

After Using the Celsius S.P.A.

  • Do not moisturize or touch the skin immediately following your Celsius S.P.A. session.
  • Do not shower for at least 6-8 hours.
  • Avoid activities that cause perspiration.
  • After your first shower, pat dry & moisturize.

Maintaining the Celsius S.P.A.

  • Celsius Tannery has enhancements products available that will extend the life of you tan & allow for necessary touch ups.
  • Avoid heavy exfoliants.
  • Avoid prolonged time in water or pools.
  • Moisturize often.

Timing Your Sunless Session

  • Your sunless tan may last up to 7 days when done correctly and using the recommended products.
  • We recommend spraying the day before your event to allow for development time. This will ensure your color will be at its peak the day of your event.

Using Eye Protection While Tanning

unnamedOne of the biggest mistakes that people make is not protecting their eyes when tanning in a tanning bed, or even outside for that matter. I have to admit, I am guilty of this myself. Before working for a professional tanning salon, I just thought closing my eyes was good enough. Then other times I would wear them for half the time of my session and keep them off for the other half of my session.
Now that I am older and a little wiser, I always wear eye protection in the tanning bed. Plus, there are numerous options to find something you’re comfortable with

Over exposure to UV light can cause great damage to your eyes if not protected, and believe it or not, just closing your eyes is not enough.

Here are six facts about using eye protection in a tanning bed that you must read.

1. Your eyes can get sunburnt! Tanning with no eye protection can cause red, itchy or watery eyes. These symptoms are all indications of short-term eye damage.
2. You can damage your eyes in just one tanning session! Even just one tanning session, without protecting your eyes can be enough exposure to cause you short-term eye damage.
3. Closing your eyes is not protecting them! Your eyelids naturally block less than 25% of UV rays from your eyes, and this will not protect you well enough.
4. Repeated exposure to UV light without eye protection can also cause long-term and even permanent eye problems.
5. Some damage caused to your eyes is irreversible! Long-term damage caused to your eyes include Diminished Color Perception (your sight will be dulled) and Reduced Night Vision. There is no cure for these.
6. Long-term exposure to UV light without eye protection seriously increases your probability of developing a cataract. This causes severe pain and even blindness. Surgery is the only cure for cataracts.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy Products Online

Buyer-BewareWe get it, online shopping is convenient.  More than that, you can often find amazing deals. When it comes to shopping online for your next tanning product, often the deal is too good to be true. Professional tanning products are only approved to be sold through professional tanning salons.  When purchasing products online from an uncertified source, many times the products are counterfeit, contaminated, or expired, making them dangerous to use.

  • Take advantage of our trained experts who can fully explain all features and benefits of each product and help you make an informed decision.
  • We offer a variety of products to meet your unique needs and budget.

Don’t risk being taken advantage of online.  Stop by today and we’ll help you find a product that’s right for you!

 

All About Sunless

Before-After-1If you haven’t tried sunless tanning at Celsius Tannery yet, what are you waiting for? Not sure what to expect? Let me tell you all about the sunless tanning experience. First, let’s get started by talking about the equipment itself!

 

The Booth

Sunless tanning at Celsius Tannery is all about comfort! It’s achieved within a private booth that utilizes the newest technology. And with its easy-to-breathe open concept, overspray is never an issue. The booth also features an automatic dry pass, which helps cut back on having a sticky/tacky feeling on your skin after your session and decreases the need to pat dry. One of my favorite things about the sunless booth is that I can achieve a great tan in minutes! Speaking of a great tan, let’s talk about your color options!

Color Options

In just one session, you’ll achieve a gorgeous tan that can last up to 7 days. Whether you’re looking for a light glow or a golden tan, your Tanning Consultant will help you determine which color option is best for your needs, ranging from 3-5 shades darker than your current color.

Newest Bronzing Options

Inside our booths, you’ll find the newest bronzing options on the market. What does that mean? Just like technology, sunless tanning is ever-changing and advancing. So if you’re still thinking about Ross from friends, please stop!  Utilizing the latest ingredients and skin care advancements available in the cosmetics industry, our solutions are top of the line. As leaders in the industry, our product suppliers are always eager to get their most advanced solutions to our clients first!

Prep & Care Products

Now, I can’t talk about sunless tanning without mentioning a few of my favorite sunless prep and care products. What’s important to remember about sunless tanning is that it’s a process that’s very different from UV tanning. While it’s natural for your skin to tan when exposed to UV rays, sunless tanning is a cosmetic process, which is why we take the time to educate each client about the sunless products we offer. Two of my favorite sunless products are the CT Buffer Exfoliator and the Color Maximizer Prep Spray.

  • CT Buffer Exfoliator is a non-abrasive, gentle way to prep the skin for a flawless, even tan! It uses natural, fine-grained volcanic stone to softly exfoliate, and works great for both UV and sunless clients.
  • Color Maximizer Prep Spray works just like a make-up primer, ensuring a darker and more even color. This quick dry 360 spray is infused with ginseng, gynostemma and protein to nourish, protect and condition your skin to result in a darker color.
