The SMART, SAFE way to tan! 

How Airbrush Tanning Works: 

Our Tahitian Tan Mist solution works in a 2-step process.

 

Step 1 provides an instant bronzing effect due to the bronzing agents that is in our formula.

Step 2 uses DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) to naturally react with your skin to produce a rich golden tan within 24 hours.

Before you Tan: 
Your skin should be clean, dry and exfoliated (exfoliate and shave the night before if possible)

Do not apply any make-ups, deodorants, perfumes, moisturizers, etc. for this will inhibit the absorption of the tanning solution. We have baby wipes available for any last minute wash ups. Most clients will want to tan topless. Some will go completely nude or wear a bikini or thong bottom. Darker colors (not white) are recommended; although the Sunless Tanning Solution will wash out, this is recommended on the side of caution.

AIRBRUSH TANNING FAQ'S

Q. How long will the tanning appointment take?


A. From 10-15 minutes. There is no rubbing involved with applying the spray tan.

Q. How long does the tan last?


A. Clients report that the tan typically lasts 3 to 10 days. This varies according to skin type and life style. (swimming, sweating, etc. will decrease the length of the tan) The tan will fade like a natural tan.

Q. Am I going to have bronze color when I finish my tanning appointment?


A. Yes. You will have the instant satisfaction of a visible bronze color.

Q. Can I wear make-up during my tanning appointment and shortly thereafter?

A. No. I recommend waiting 8 hours before washing your face and taking a shower. Your face will have a deep golden glow! You will not need any make-up, however, you may use lipstick. You may wear full make-up after your first shower if you desire.

Q. Will my skin look orange?
A. Absolutely Not!

Q. Will the spray tanning affect my hair?


A. The DHA will not react to anything but skin, so your hair will not tan, nor will the eyebrows.

Q. Do I need to exfoliate before my tanning appointment?


A. Yes. You can exfoliate twice, the day before and the same day of your appointment.

Q. What kind of the exfoliator should I use?


A. Use any of our exfoliating products the day before your airbrush appointment to remove any old skin so that your skin may fully absorb the Tahitian Mist Solution.

Q. What kind of shower gel should I use to care for my tan?


A. Use any of our shower gels and aloe based moisturizing products during and after your first shower.

Q. Can I shave or wax my legs before tanning?


A. Yes. We recommend doing so since you will skip shaving for your first shower after the airbrush session.

Q. Can I use moisturizer or deodorant before tanning?


A. No. But, you need to moisturize your airbrush tan (after the first shower) every day, twice a day if you have dry skin.

Q. What should I wear during my tanning appointment?


A. Most clients will want to tan topless and will wear a bikini or thong bottom. Some go completely nude . Others prefer to wear an old swimming suit or dark colored undergarments. After tanning, you should wear loose fitting dark clothing (no jeans), and loose flip flops.

Q. Will the spray tan stain my clothes, bed sheets, and/or my car seat?


A. You should wear long, dark pants or skirts (until your first shower) to protect any surface (in case of sweating) that you may come in contact with. (i.e. car seats, bed sheets, sofas, etc.) However, the tan will dry quickly and is water-based, so it rarely transfers to clothing or bed sheets. If any color does get transferred, it can be easily washed and will not stain.

Q. Does the spray tan dry fast?


A. Yes. You will blow dry your body until the solution is dry (about 3 to 5 minutes).

Q. Can I work out right after tanning? 


A. No. After a minimum of 8 hours, take a shower and then you can resume your regular activities.

Q. Does sunless spray tan contain sun screen?


A. No.

Your tan will not fully develop for 24 hours. Sunless spray tan is great for people with Rosacea who want to hide pink and red splotches.
