About Airbrush Tanning
Why Sunless Tanning?
There are more than 1 million new cases of skin cancer diagnosed every year. Despite the clear and present danger of Cancer, UV rays are also the cause of premature skin cell aging, sun poisoning, and transmitted diseases from unsanitary tanning beds. We are now fully aware of the sun’s harmful effects and damage to our skin. As a result, more and more people are opting for UV free sunless tanning. In one personal session you can have a safe and beautiful glow, achieving the same results as countless days in the sun, without the aging effects. Celebrities have been using airbrush spray tanning for years and now it’s available to you.
What is Airbrush/Spray Tanning?
This tanning is a unique sunless tanning application performed by a professionally trained and certified technician who will spray DHA tanning formula onto your body. Remember, no individual or machine will ever be able to apply a spray tan as well as a trained technician can. The tanning formula will be customized for your specific skin type providing you with a natural looking glow. This is a personal treatment tailored to meet the client’s individual needs. The customized tanning formula is airbrushed onto your body and actually creates the same reaction in your skin as the sun does, but without any of the skin damage or harmful UV rays.
What are the Advantages of Airbrush Tanning?
Spray tanning booths can produce poor results due to lack of customization. Airbrush tanning offers a customized solution to the client that will provide a flawless glow. No more self applied orange and streaky self-tanners and no UV damage. Airbrush tanning can hide old stretch marks and reduce the appearance of spider veins and cellulite.
Is It Safe?
YES! DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient in our 94% water based solution and has been approved by the FDA for over 30 years. DHA is a simple non-toxic sugar and it is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. The solution takes 10-12 hours to fully develop and your glow will darken during this time.
What is the Solution and How Does It Work?
The FDA approved Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) reacts with the amino acids in the outermost layer of the skin. The amino acids in the skin will respond naturally to the DHA and other complementary ingredients in the tanning formula to produce the most beautiful sunless glow you have ever seen. You will continue to develop your glow for up to 10-12 hours after your session. In addition, our solution contains a bronzer, a temporary coloring agent, which washes off leaving behind a healthy glow.
Will I Turn Orange?
Because our solutions do not contain dyes, the results of your airbrush tanning session are purely natural looking. Your glow will be customized to your skin type so that you will NOT experience the orange discoloration that you may have experienced in the past from other sunless tanning products.
How To Get Started
How Long Does The Glow Last?
The length of time you will enjoy your glow involves various factors. The primary factor is how well you typically hold a natural tan along with how hydrated you keep your skin prior to your tan and after your tan. On the average, most clients enjoy their glow for about 5-10 days . The desired depth of color will determine how often you need to have it redone. As with any tan, the more you moisturize, the longer you will keep your tan. Unprocessed organic coconut oil is the moisturizer recommended because it does not contain mineral oil. Do not use moisturizers containing mineral oil prior to or after your tan as it will cause unevenness in your tan.
How Can I Continue to Keep my Glow?
Your glow will have the appearance of a healthy natural looking tan from the very first visit. If after that first visit you wish to build your glow even darker, we recommend coming back for a second glow within 4-5 days OR, make sure to schedule your next appointment 7-10 days out so that you can continue to keep and build your natural looking glow. You will be surprised at the beautiful long lasting glow a few sessions can achieve. You must properly exfoliate your skin removing the dead skin cells using the exfoliating gloves and hydrating with coconut oil prior to your initial tan. If the skin is not hydrated it may become blotchy.
How Do I Prepare For My Appointment?
It is best to lightly exfoliate your skin with the exfoliation gloves sold by Skin and perform any hair removal at least 8 hours before your tan. This promotes even coverage and lengthens the duration of your tan by removing dead skin that would otherwise flake off. Do not wear makeup, moisturizer, deodorant, lotions, etc. which can act as a barrier to the spray and stops the process from working properly. Do not use moisturizers containing mineral oil. While not necessary, wearing dark, loose fitting clothing and undergarments to your appointment is helpful. If your skin is dry and patchy then your tan will not come out even. The way to get healthy, moisturized skin is to use exfoliating gloves and then hydrate with coconut oil on a regular basis leading up to the day of the tan. If you are dealing with dry skin, then we recommend putting off the tanning process until you have exfoliated with gloves and hydrated the skin with coconut oil (a little goes a long way)to get your skin in the best shape possible prior to the day of the tan. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin too!!
What Do I Wear During The Session?
You can choose to be dressed (or not) ~ most clients wear just a thong, some wear panties or a bathing suit. A disposable hair cap, and nose filter will be provided. The topical bronzer may rub off on clothing but it will wash out of most fabrics.
What Do I Do After The Session?
Wait at least 10-12 hours before showering, exercising, or using a pool. We recommend rinsing your hands and feet after 4-6 hours because the hands and feet tend to develop quicker than other areas of the body. (don't get caught in the rain after!!) Do NOT wait longer than 12 hours to shower!! Do not engage in any activity that may cause sweating prior to your first shower. Most importantly, moisturize morning and evening on a daily basis after your first shower, and avoid Dove soap and moisturizers containing AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) or mineral oil. Also avoid long hot showers and baths as excessive cleansing can dull the affects. Chlorine in pools and hot tubs can decrease the longevity of your tan too. Pat yourself dry after your shower, do not rub yourself dry. Organic unprocessed coconut oil is what is recommended to moisturize your skin after your tan.
What Other Add-On Products Can Make My Glow Special?
For your special events or just for a little extra sparkle, we offer Shimmer. Shimmer has a “twinkle effect” and is a bronzy cosmetic that is sprayed on over the Airbrushed tan AFTER you have already taken your first shower (10-12 hours after your airbrush tan). The shimmer will be washed off in the shower, so it best for special events. The effect is subtle and it’s most evident when light shines on it. It does contain DHA but the shimmer effect washes off. Shimmer is applied to the part of the body that would naturally see sunlight such as the shoulders.
