For Glo On The Go's owner, Gail Ward, tan skin seemed like an impossible dream. With a strong history of skin cancer in her family, she knew tanning beds and booths were off-limits and turned instead to bottled tanning lotions and creams, trying nearly every one she could find with less than ideal results. So when Gail?s sister Esther told her about airbrush tanning, she decided to give it a shot?and was amazed to discover she had finally found a method of self-tanning that worked for her skin type and, best of all, looked natural. She was so impressed, in fact, that she decided to open her own tanning salon in order to share airbrush tanning with melanoma survivors and other clients concerned about the adverse health effects of traditional tanning.
Nine years?and 30 spray-tan-solution tests?later, Gail took her commitment to counteracting paleness one step further by developing her own line of custom spray-tan solutions. The custom formulas allow Gail and her staff of skincare experts to match clients? skin types to the solution best suited to their needs. There are three options to choose from and each high-quality solution provides a natural look without bronzers or color additives so tans don't streak or stain. The Clearly Tan Light solution, for example, is ideal for skin that burns easily, whereas the salon's go-to formula, Beautifully Bronzed, is fortified with anti-aging and skin-strengthening ingredients such as amino acids and vitamins A, C, and E, making it an ideal option for nearly anyone. While the team outfits people of all walks of life with golden tans, they especially cater to bodybuilders and ballroom dancers, many of whom visit Glo On The Go before competitions and performances.
Glo On The Go offers automated spray tans in the L Spa space they acquired in the spring of 2014. The automated spray tans use a two-position, voice-guided system in an open-air platform to give skin a nourishing, spa-like treatment with vitamins, aloe, and lanolin. There's even special instructions for perfect hands and feet.
