How Airbrush Tanning Works
Airbrush Tanning is not a dye. The primary ingredient in the tanning solution works with the amino acids in the top layer of your skin to produce a natural tan exactly like the sun, but without damaging your skin.
The airbrush tanning formula won’t rub off on your clothes, once the tan is set.
Airbrush tanning fades gently, just like a real suntan.
Airbrush tanning is safe and FDA approved.
Fair skin will tan with Airbrush Tanning. Sunburns can be a thing of the past.
Airbrush Tanning provides a golden brown color. There is no orange discoloration.
All Sunless Tanners are NOT Created Equal!
Life moves fast and so do you. Unexpected plans happen all the time, and now you can be prepared at a moments notice. While traditional tanning beds cannot perform 24-hour miracles, airbrush tanning systems can.
We can turn your skin into “beach beautiful” in 30 minutes. We are not talking about the endless array of sunless tanning lotions, which leave your skin blotched and streaked. We offer a personalized airbrush tanning process that gives your skin a beautiful, healthy glow.
How to prepare for your tanning session......
Shower and exfoliate your entire body before a tanning session.
DO NOT use moisturizer until after your post-tanning shower. Lotions can act as a barrier and prevent the solution from skin. The same applies to the face and makeup.
Wear a dark colored bathing suit or your garment of your preference to tan in. The solution washes out of most clothing very easily, but tends to stain silk, light nylon materials, and wool.
Bring loose clothing and sandals to your appointment. Tight fitting clothing will prevent the tanning solution from setting in.
Wait at least 6 hours before showering after your tanning session. You need to allow enough time for the reaction to take place, the longer the better.
Apply moisturizer, morning and evening, after your post-tanning shower. Hydrated skin maintains a longer life to your tan. We recommend Fake Bake Tan Extender.
Maintaining 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.
DO NOT sit directly on leather or light fabric seats and furniture after your tanning session. Sit on a towel or cloth instead.
Taking long hot baths or soaking in the pool can accelerate exfoliation and fade your tan.
Do not exercise immediately following your tanning session. Excessive perspiration can affect the tanning process and the end result of your tan.
DO NOT use lotions with AlphaHydroxy Acids; their purpose is to increase exfoliation. Know that their use will accelerate the fading process of your tan.
Post-tan shower: If you have had an application with bronzer, you will see color washing off in the first time you shower. DO NOT be alarmed; this is just the surface color that was applied. Your skin will continue to tan as the self-tan reaction occurs on your skin.
Below are some answers to frequently asked questions:
What is Airbursh Tanning?
A personalized body airbrushing technique using an Airbrush Spray System that distributes an even mist all over the body.
How Does Airbrush Tanning Work?
The FDA approved primary in-gredient dihydroxyacetone (DHA), reacts with the amino acids (proteins) in the outermost "dead" layer of your skin. There is an external bronzer in our product, which begins to show almost immediately. There is no damage to the underlying living layers of skin, and unlike tanning beds and sunlight, there are no long-term ultra-violet carcinogenic dangers. This healthy tan goes beautifully over an existing tan and can even out or eliminate any tan lines, if you wish. For the untanned and fair of skin, our premium quality Airbrush products will fool your friends into thinking you've become a sun goddess overnight.
How long does an Airbrush Tan last?
An airbrushed tan will typically last 4-10 days. It all depends on your skin type and how you care for it following the tanning session. Airbrush tanning produces color on the outermost layer of the skin, and that layer is being discarded, cell-by-cell. If you wear your skin hard, take long hot baths or showers, wear clothes that chafe, or do anything to encourage the skin to "shed," so does your tan. You can extend the life of your tan by using Fake Bake moisturizer and tan extender lotion at least once daily.
How safe is Airbrush Tanning?
The primary ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacetone), is derived from raw sugar cane and has been FDA approved for cosmetic use. DHA has been used safely over the years in numerous sunless tanning products, such as creams and lotions. The premium quality product we use is manufactured with the most advanced method available. Our solution allows for better adhesion and longer lasting results than similarly advertised products, which charge more, and is without the odd coloring effects of earlier generation products.
Does tanning protect me from the sun?
NO! Airbrush tanning DOES NOT protect you from the sun. It is recommended that a sunscreen be used anytime you go out into the sun.
How long does it take to get tanned?
Your session takes approximately 30 minutes. It takes approximately 20-25 minutes to airbrush the tan. Drying usually takes 5 minutes.
What do clients wear?
Attire for women is whatever you are comfortable with. Many things can be done to minimize tan lines. The key is your comfort level. Attire for men is boxers, swim trunks or shorts. Our taning specialists use the utmost discretion. Loos fitting clothing and sandals should be worn for leaving the center. We have found that DHA reacts with wol, nylon, and silk. These fabrics should be worn during or immediately following your tanning session.
