Sun-kissed skin provides a healthy-looking glow that can increase confidence and help highlight your very best features.

Glow Tanning Studio in southeast Calgary only uses the very best tanning technology available, providing you with the ultimate tanning experience. Our tanning beds create a relaxing atmosphere in a luxurious environment, which will leave you revitalized and feeling great.

Indoor tanning exposes you to UV rays, which delivers a much-needed dosage of vitamin D, an important nutrient that helps build strong teeth and bones, keeps blood pressure low, and fights off seasonal affective disorder. Many lack appropriate amounts of vitamin D, especially during Calgary’s harsh, dark winters. UV rays also encourage your body to produce its own vitamin D, meaning you will get the recommended amount even when you are not tanning.
Make sure to speak with one of our knowledgeable Smart Tan® certified tanning experts before you start your indoor tanning regimen. We can offer valuable tips as to how to choose the right bed for your skin type, the ideal frequency of visits, and the amount of time you should spend in your tanning bed. Everyone is different, and we can tailor your tanning program to assist you in fulfilling your personal needs and reaching your tanning goals.

Whether you are getting ready for a vacation in a sunny destination and are needing a pre-tan or just simply seeking some color let one of our Smart Tan® certified techs help you choose the package that’s right for you.

Smart indoor tanning tips from your knowledgeable Smart Tan® Certified experts at Glow:

  • Tanning beds should be used in moderation.
  • Use eye protection at all times.
  • Leave at least 24 hours between tanning sessions.
  • Remove makeup before tanning.
  • Start tanning at least five to six weeks before a vacation.
  • Apply indoor tanning lotion only. Indoor tanning lotion is specially formulated to moisturize and absorb UV light better.
  • Prolong the life of your tan with a tan extender.


What to know about tanning lotions:

We recommend only using professional, salon-calibre tanning lotions, as those purchased elsewhere (such as from the drug store) often contain lesser-quality ingredients like mineral and petroleum products, which do not increase your tanning ability and will damage the acrylic in our beds.  Be sure to speak with your Glow Tanning Studio Smart Tan® Certified tanning expert to find the right lotion for you.
