At Pure Glow, we believe that living a healthy lifestyle should be easy. We know that Bostonians are dynamic individuals with a lot of people and things competing for our time, so we aim to make tanning, protecting your skin and maintaining a tan year round as effortless as can be.
Whether your motivation is rooted in a desire to avoid wrinkles and the visible effects of aging or overall skin health as it relates to skin damage and its link to disease, protecting yourself from UVA, UVB and IRA rays is a non negotiable today. While sunscreen is a proven, effective method to help you stay protected, we realize that the idea of lathering something wet and greasy on up to six times daily is not only cringe worthy, but just isn't realistic for most New Englanders.
We agree, and propose something different: brush on sunscreen. The world of brush on sunscreens has been small for some time, but is recently growing in size, we think driven by demand for safer and better sunscreen products by consumers. Brush on sunscreens go on in a fine, translucent powder dispensed through a soft makeup looking brush. How do you know it's going on? You will see and feel the powder come out of your brush and onto your skin. Recommended for small surface areas like your face, neck and the back of your hands (hello gel mani), application takes a matter of seconds, doesn't require a mirror and sits pleasantly over your makeup or a fresh spray tan.
Since not all sunscreens are created equal, Brush On Block brand is recommended since it's passed our nontoxic vetting process and works like a charm. Not only is it water resistant, but it's active ingredients are comprised of the two safest sunscreen ingredients, non-nanoparticle titanium dioxide and zinc oxide.
This sunscreen can be used immediately following your Pure Glow tan, and is safe to use with repetitive use while enjoying your spray tan over the next 8-12 days. Look for Brush On Block at your next appointment, or pop into the studio anytime to pick up your new beauty BFF.
