On the Glow Mobile Spray Tanning relies on spray-tan solutions and equipment from Infinity Sun—the same brand that sun-kisses many celebrities. The bronzing sprays are derived from natural antioxidants and botanicals, which give clients a golden glow for up to 10 days. And since spray tans take place in the client's own home, color has enough time to dry without drips or streaks caused by a sudden rainstorm or a spitting camel who's escaped from the zoo.
