FAQ About Airbrush Tanning

How does Airbrush tanning work?

The active ingredient in virtually all Sunless Tanning formulas is (DHA). When DHA is applied to the skin, it causes a chemical reaction with the amino acids in the skin to produce a tan, much like the sun does, but without UVA and UVB damage to the skin.

Is this safe for my skin?

DHA (dihydroxyacetone), has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic applications. It has been used for over 30 years without any harmful effects.

NOTE: IF YOU ARE PREGNANT, COUNSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN PRIOR TO YOUR TANNING SESSION AND BRING WRITTEN PERMISSION FOR YOUR PHYSICIAN TO HAVE ON FILE.

How long will my tan last?

Depending on your activities and skin type, the tan should last 7-10 days. With follow up applications, you can maintain your tan indefinitely. USE MOISTURIZER ON YOUR SKIN DAILY TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR TAN AS WELL AS HELP YOUR TAN FADE EVENLY.

What should I wear to my tanning session?

Some people wear a bathing suit, one piece or two piece. Some people wear their old underwear. Whatever you feel most comfortable in. Make sure the clothes you wear after the tanning session are loose and dark.

 

TIPS FOR TANNING

* DO shower and exfoliate your entire body before a tanning session. It is best to shave at least 8 hours before tanning.

* DO NOT apply moisturizer until after your post tanning shower, lotions can act as a barrier and prevent spray from contacting the skin. The same applies to the face and make-up.

* DO wear loose clothing and shoes to your appointment. A comfortable sundress and sandals or a T-shirt and warm-up pants are good examples.

* DO wait at least 8-12 hours before showering after your tanning session. You need to allow enough time for the reaction to take place, the longer the better.

* DO apply moisturizer, morning and evening, after your post tanning session. Hydrated skin maintains a longer life to your tan.

* DO NOT sit directly on leather or light fabric seats and furniture after your tanning session. Sit on a towel or cloth instead.

* DO NOT take long hot baths or soak in the pool. This can accelerate exfoliation and fade your tan. It’s best to bathe or swim prior to your pre-tan exfoliation and tanning session.

* DO NOT exercise immediately following your tanning session. Excessive perspirations can affect the tanning process and the end of your tan.

* DO NOT use Alpha Hydroxy Acids as their purpose is to increase exfoliation. Know that their use will accelerate the fading process of your tan.

* YOUR SKIN TYPE AFFECTS HOW OFTEN YOU NEED TO TAN. DRYER SKIN EXFOLIATES FASTER, SO HYDRATING WITH LOTION BETWEEN SESSIONS IS ESSENTIAL TO KEEP YOUR TAN ALIVE.
