SPRAY TANNING FAQ's

PREPARING FOR YOUR SPRAY TAN

  • Gently wash your body and pat your skin dry

DAY OF SESSION:

  • Mani/Pedi and any hair removal (waxing) should be done before tan.

  • Exfoliate before treatment to remove dry, flaky skin, especially dry skin area.

  • Make sure you shave prior to tan

  • Skin should be clean of lotions, perfumes, makeup and deoderant

  • Wear dark loose fitting clothes to put on after session *no jeans please*

  • Avoid activities that may cause you to sweat

 

**Please note: we let you control your desired colour tone - wait 6 - 24 hours after spray tan before showering/washing.  The sooner you shower, the lighter your tan will be and the instant colour bronzer will wash off.  Keeping the spray tan treatment on longer than 24 hours may cause an unnatural colour change.

MAINTAINING YOUR TAN

  • Gently wash your body and pat your skin dry

  • Do not use bar soap – Dove products should be avoided as they are not sunless friendly.

  • Apply oil free body lotion after shower and try to apply as often as possible

  • Avoid products containing alcohol (perfumes, body sprays) on your airbrush tan, instead mist these products in the air and walk through once clothed.

  • Do not take long hot baths or showers

  • Chlorine from a pool can cause your tan to fade faster

  • Exfoliate thoroughly before your next session

  • Avoid lotions with mineral oil/petroleum

Our solutions are PETA approved, paraben free, fragrance free, alcohol free, and Simply Organic. The active ingredient, Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA), is a simple carbohydrate. The DHA in our solution is extracted from sugar beets and sugar cane. Since it not a dye or pigment, it does not penetrate the skin, but simply reacts with the skin’s outermost layer of proteins, resulting in a browning effect. Sunless tanning was first introduced into the consumer marketplace in the 1960s. In 1977, the FDA added DHA to their list of approved cosmetic ingredients. Today, DHA is the main active ingredient in all sunless tanning skincare preparations.

It’s no secret that a tan makes us appear slimmer, younger, and sexier. However, it’s important to keep in mind that almost 90% of the visible changes attributed to aging are caused by the sun. Sunless tanning is not only the smart alternative because it provides all the same benefits without the exposure to ultraviolet rays; but in addition, it can minimize the appearance of skin imperfections and eliminate the concern of tan lines. Custom airbrush tanning and body contouring also creates the opportunity to obtain any shade of tan one might desire- from a subtle glow to a deep, tropical bronze, Pure Organic Airbrush Tanning is here!

With the sun’s ultraviolet rays being the main culprit of skin cancer, it’s no surprise that DHA-based sunless tanning has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, American Academy of Dermatology Association, and the American Medical Association. Ultraviolet radiation damages DNA, the genetic material that makes up genes. In turn, our genes control the growth and overall health of skin cells. So although soaking up the sun may seem like a pleasant pastime, it is not safe for long enough periods for people to develop the color they desire. Sunless tanning allows individuals to obtain a sun-kissed glow without the harmful effects of UV-rays.
