WHAT IS AIRBRUSH TANNING?
Airbrush tanning involves applying a smooth and even micro-fine mist of tanning solution with an airbrush. Unlike spray booths, airbrush tanning is applied by hand by our certified airbrush artists, giving you a healthy glow without the downsides associated with UV tanning such as skin damage, premature wrinkles, sagging and risk of skin cancer.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply Sunless uses a professional solution that incorporates Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), the active FDA approved ingredient used in self-tanners. DHA, derived from sugar cane, interacts with the amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to give you a natural, beautiful brown color. Our solution hypo-alergenic., oil free
alcohol free, and fragrance free.
IS IT SAFE?
Our solution contains DHA, which the Academy of Dermatology says is the common ingredient in the most effective sunless tanning products. This solution is not absorbed by your body; instead, it reacts with the proteins in the outermost layer of your skin to produce the tanning effect.
IS AIRBRUSH TANNING LIKE A SPRAY BOOTH TAN?
Airbrush tanning is a completely different experience from the spray booth. Unlike spray booths, our technicians apply the airbrush tan in an even layer across your entire body, including hard-to-reach places. This leaves no streaks, drips or unsightly orange coloration on your hands and feet. Simply Sunless's ability to give you exactly the tan you want means you won't leave without being 100% satisfied.
HOW DARK WILL I BE AFTER ONE SESSION?
Though effective, airbrush tanning is not an exact science, and results will vary depending on the client's skin type. We have different solution strengths that compensate for different skin types. You should have realistic expectations, and you should let us know about any areas of concern on your body that you may have. But we know you'll be impressed with the results!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The tanning session takes approximately 15 minutes:
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR MY TAN?
We ask that prior to your tanning session you shower, shave and exfoliate to make sure the tan will develop properly. Do not apply any makeup, moisturizer or deodorant. Wear loose-fitting clothing and flip-flops. Other products, such as oil-based exfoliants and other products, can also interfere with your tan. See below for further information about how to prepare.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO AFTER MY TANNING SESSION?
We advise that you do not shower for at least 8 hours and the longer you can go, the better. Try to avoid strenuous activity that would lead to sweating, as well. Avoid hot showers and moisturize daily.
HOW LONG WILL MY AIRBRUSH TAN LAST?
Depending on how you take care of your skin, your tan can last apprximately 7 days. Airbrush tans fade just like real tans do: skin cell replacement naturally "fades" your skin. Exfoliants like loofahs, bar soap, chlorine from pools and hot tubs, swimming in the ocean, shaving or waxing will also hasten the fading of your tan. Cold weather or excessive sun bathing can also cause your skin to peel, so protect yourself if you expose yourself to these conditions. We highly advise that you use one of our extenders to increase the amount of time your tan will last.
It's important to note that simply swimming in a pool or ocean will not cause your tan to "wash off."
WHAT DO I NEED TO WEAR WHEN I GET MY AIRBRUSH TAN?
Women who want tan lines should wear a dark-colored bathing suit or similar underwear, or they can opt for no tan lines at all. We ask that men wear dark-colored swimsuits or underwear of some kind. Our solution is water-soluble and washes out of most synthetic fabrics and all natural ones.
CAN I GET A TAN IF I AM PREGNANT?
We recommend that you talk to your doctor before you decide to have an airbrush tan. That said, for years pregnant women have had no trouble using sunless tanning like ours
