What should I do before/after my tan?
-Come with clean skin. Exfoliate and shave, if possible and come without lotion, perfume, or deodorant.
-If you are planning on getting a manicure/pedicure please do so before your tan.
-Wear loose-fitting, dark-colored clothing and sandals to your appointment. The solution will not stain your clothing, but wearing light weight cotton works best.
-You may receive your tan wearing whatever you are comfortable in and according to what kind of tan you would like. Many choose to go nude, yet wearing underwear or bathing suits work great.
-Shower after 8-12 hours
-Avoid prolonged exposure to hot showers, baths and chlorine. These factors can speed up the exfoliation process.
-If any solution appears on your clothing it will wash out of most fabric. Wear darker colored clothing until after your first shower.
-Moisturizing after your first shower will keep the tan looking healthy and glowing. Also, avoid exfoliants as they will accelerate the fading process.
-Airbrush tanning does NOT provide sunscreen protection. You are still able to tan with the spray tan as a base, but you will need to wear sunscreen as usual.
How does airbrush tanning work?
The primary ingredient in all tanning solutions is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). It reacts with the amino acids in the outermost layer of your skin. There is an external bronzer in our product derived from walnuts, which shows immediately. There is no damage to the underlying layers of skin. Appointments take 30 minutes and the tan develops over the next 8-12 hours.
How safe is airbrush tanning?
The primary ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacetone), is derived from raw sugar cane and has been FDA approved for cosmetic use in creams and lotions. DHA has been used safely over the years in numerous sunless tanning products and we provide goggles and nose filters to ensure you have a comfortable tanning experience with minimal exposure to the spray. The premium quality product we use is manufactured with the most advanced method available and natural ingredients.
How long does an airbrush tan last?
An airbrush tan will typically last 7-10 days. It all depends on your skin type and how you care for it following the tanning session. You can extend the life of your tan by using moisturizing lotion. Our Infinity Sun Tan Extender not only works great for this, but smells delicious, too!
How do you set up in my home?
We come prepared with everything necessary to provide you with a quick, comfortable, and great looking tan. We just need an area to set up our spray tanning tent and supplies and can get started. There's no need to worry about mess or cleanup. Our system is quick, precise, and produces little overspray. We provide a tent and a fan to catch any overspray when doing mobile services. Our tanning product does not have a heavy odor like most lotion tanners and other spray tans.
Will I look orange or splotchy?
No way! Our tanning system provides a very natural brown color and you can see your color right away. The great thing about having a technician apply the tan is that there is no streaking like many lotions and tanning booths. In fact, we are able to fully customize your tan, for example, if you prefer to have your legs darker, face lighter, etc.
