Exfoliate your skin the night before. This promotes an even coverage and lenghthens the duration of your tan by removing dead skin that would otherwise flake off. Do not injure the skin by overdoing it.
Wax a minimum of 24 hours before your tanning appointment, OR Shave 8 hours before or after post tanning shower. Use a sharp, clean razor, with a lubricating product (such as hair conditioner, or shave gel).
Remove or avoid wearing make-up and moisturizer as this acts as a barrier to the spray and stops the process from working properly.
Wear dark, loose fitting clothing and undergarments to your tanning appointment. The cosmetic bronzer may rub off on clothing. It will wash out of most fabrics bt may stain nylons, lycra and silks.
Post Tan Maintenance
Wait at least 8 to 12 hours before washing.
Apply moisturizer morning and evening after your post-tan shower. Avoid moisturizers with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) because they promote exfoliation.
Avoid long, hot showers and baths, and scrubbing the skin. If you use a wash cloth when bathing, choose one htat is soft as possible. Pat yur skin dry after bathing ans showering. Excessive friction on the skin may fade your skin prematurely.
Chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs can remove or shorten the longevity of your tan.
Take care when exercising as friction and excess sweat may cause your tan to fade prematurely or unevenly
How does it work?
The amino acids in the skin will resond naturally to the DHA and the other complimentary ingredients in the tanning formulas to produce the most beautiful sunless tan you've ever seen.
How long should my tan last?
The average result is 7 to 10 days of color.
Is it safe?
Yes. The main ingredient in our sunless tanning products is known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple non-toxic sugar. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. DHA is FDA approved.
How long does a session take?
A full body session will take approximately 10 to 20 minutes.
Does a spray tan provide SPF protection?
No. Spray tans do not provide any sunscren protection, so you should apply sunscreen accordingly. Your skin will appear tanned, even though it is not. This is an artifical tan so if you choose to expose your skin to UV rays either from the sun or a tanning bed, it is important to use a lotion with SPF to protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
What is the advantage of a spray tan over UV tanning?
Airbrush tanning is an alternative form of tanning. People with sensitive skin or people who have had a hard time tanning, be it natural or tannning beds will find this form of tanning very comforting. One application with airbrush tanning will be equivalent to approximatately 6 tanning bed sessions, therefore making it cost effective. Airbrush tanning also saves the skin of excessive wear and tear as well as free from potential burns caused by the sun or tanning beds. It is safe for pregnant women, nursing moms, men and women who have had or are dealing with skin cancer. It only reacts with the top 2 layers of dead skin cells so it is completely safe.
