GLOW // Winner of BEST Spray Tan
fter you’ve found the perfect summer sandals, white jeans and a stack of gold rings, you have one more stop to set them off. Head to GLOW for a luxury organic airbrush tan. Not only does it feel great, but it also makes a surprisingly big difference in how you feel about your overall look. You notice your healthy color and feel more confident in your skin. And other people notice you, too. At GLOW you can do a full-body or just face tan, as well as noninvasive body treatments to make the most of your shape at the peak of swimsuit season. Also, no reason to be self-conscious in the spa, because the treatments feel like head-to-toe pampering.
A healthy airbrush tan is a noninvasive body treatment with big impact.
MIND Who is stressed? Yeah. We’re all a bit on edge lately, so take a few moments to try the sauna, steam shower and meditation space— maybe add a therapeutic massage and spa facial.
