Airbrush Tanning

Looking to get a flawless tan? Well we know just the way to get it. Airbrush tanning has been used for years by many people. It is a safe and effective way to have a beautiful golden tan without the harmful effects of UV rays and without all the time it takes to go to a tanning bed or sit outside in the sun.

The active ingredient in sunless tanners is Dihydroxyacetone also called DHA. The amino acids and proteins in the epidermis or top layer of your skin react with the DHA to give you a beautiful natural looking tan. DHA has went under extensive dermatological testing to prove that it is safe to use. There are no indications that DHA can enter the bloodstream, it can only penetrate the outermost layer or epidermis of the skin.

Tips for Airbrush Tanning

  • For the best results from the airbrush tanning you should shower and exfoliate your skin before getting it done. This will give you an even and longer lasting tan, because you will not be tanning the dead skin cells that are getting ready to fall off. Using a loofa or puff doesn’t work because it does not conform to the skin which will result in you having a zebra look. Also for females make sure you shave at least 8 hours before getting an airbrush tan because this is also a form of exfoliation and will cause your tan to fade faster.
  • Another tip is to wait to apply any lotions, deodorants, oils, or anything else that could cause a barrier and not let your skin soak up the DHA.
  • After tanning it is recommended to wait at least 8 hours before getting in water or doing any vigorous activity that will make you sweat. This is because the longer you are in water the more water your skin soaks up which will make you tan fade because the water will dilute the effects of the tan. Using a good strong sunscreen will help minimize these effects, but make sure your apply frequently if you are going to be in the water for a long period of time.
  • Airbrush tanning is a good alternative to sun tanning because it is not as harsh on your skin and it is quick and easy. You can go in before a party or event and have a gorgeous tan without all the time of a tanning bed. Airbrush tanning last 5-7 days depending on the person and your activities, but you can go in and get a refresher tan to keep your tan looking beautiful.
