Wax
All Gloww therapists have had advanced training in waxing and use only the highest quality grade waxes and lotions. Catering to all skin types, they ensure superior results with a silky smooth finish for both men and women. Follow these tips to get the most from your waxing treatment:

Do:
  • Exfoliate before waxing
  • Let your therapist know of any medication you're on or any recent medical treatments
  • Moisturise daily after waxing
  • Use a hair retardant and an ingrown inhibitor
  • Wax every 4 to 6 weeks

Don't:
  • Don't moisturise the day of waxing
  • Don't wax if you have any skin irritations or burns, including sun burn
  • Don't go in the sun, or visit a solarium, or go in chlorinated water until 24 hours after waxing
  • Don't shower or bath in excessively hot water after waxing, or use a sauna for 24 hours
  • Don't apply deodorant until 24 hours after waxing
  • Do not exfoliate for 3-5 days after waxing

Tan
Containing all natural ingredients, Gloww's spray tans will give you a natural-looking, long lasting colour with streak-free results. Plus, they contain a blend of vitamins and antioxidants to hydrate and nourish skin. To make sure you get the perfect colour for your skin, Gloww offer a free colour consultation and customise the correct colour for your skin type and occasion.

Do:
  • Exfoliate and shower before tanning
  • If required, remove body hair before tanning
  • Wear loose dark clothing and slip on thongs for after your session
  • Moisturise your skin each day after tanning
  • As the tan begins to fade, exfoliate gently to renew skin cells, so that the tan wears evenly

Don't:
  • Don't moisturise prior to tanning, as your therapist will apply this
  • Don't exercise or shower for 8 hours after tan is applied
