What is Airbrush Tanning?

 In airbrush tanning, the tanning solution is applied by a technician using a compressor and airbrush. Tanning solutions contain the active ingredient DHA that reacts with the outer layer of skin to produce a bronzing effect, similar to what a traditional tan does. An airbrush tan does not provide UV protection.  After application the color of the skin will continue to darken and the maximum color is reached within about a 8-10 hour period. Our solutions also have a bronzer that provides an immediate tan effect and helps the technician to distinguish areas of the skin that have solution already applied. The majority of this bronzer will be washed off when showering after application.  Our sunless solution has a violet base that delivers a natural deep chocolate tan. Our formula contains NO Parabens, Formaldehyde, Mineral oil, Sulfates, Gluten and is animal cruelty-free.

How to prepare for your spray tan

  • To prepare for your tan, it's best to shower, wax/shave (no shaving cream) and exfoliate at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. If you have remaining spray tan on you, you can either scrub it off, or we can spray over it if it has faded nicely.
  • Avoid Bar Soap & Moisturizers.
  • Condition hair before exfoliating.
  • Do not apply deodorant, lotions or perfumes.
  • Wear Lip Balm.
  • You can wear whatever you want during the tan, most people just wear a dark swimsuit .
  • Disposable bra & panties are available to purchase.
  • Wait at least 8-10 hours before you shower, that's ideal for our Regular solution. For our Rapid solution you can rinse in 1-4 hours but it will still take the 8-10 hours to fully develop.
  • The topical color can rub off a little bit on your clothes or sheets until you take your first shower, but washes out. Just be careful with special fabrics or unique bathing suits. 
  • It's best to wear dark, Loose clothing after your tanning session, No Leggings!
  • You don't want to exercise, sweat or do dishes in the hours after your tanning session. These activities can cause your tan to drip or wash off on certain areas.
  • After your tan has developed take a warm shower (not hot) & pat dry.
  • Keep your skin hydrated & well moisturized by applying a Non-oiled based alcohol free lotion daily.
  • Do not use any loofahs or body scrubs until your spray tan is fading & ready for your next spray tan.
  • Spending long periods of time in the water, pools and/or hot tubs can shorten the life of your spray tan. Using a good waterproof sunscreen lotion can help.
