Pre & Post Tan
Q: What is spray tanning?
A: UV Free spray tanning is the application of the tanning solution to the skin. When applied, DHA reacts with the skin creating a golden brown color. The color will darken in about 2-3 hours and reaches the full intensity in 24 hours. The color will then gradually fade through your skins natural exfoliation process.
Q: What is DHA?
A: DHA is the active ingredient most often used in sunless tanners, tinted moisturizers and spray solution. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is a carbohydrate compound approved by the FDA for use as an externally applied sunless tanning solution. DHA is often derived from a vegetable source such as beets or sugar cane.
Q: Does my spray tan work like sun screen?:
A: No, spray tans are cosmetic. They do not create a "base tan" or provide UV protection. It is strongly recommended that sunscreen is applied while exposed to the sun or other UV rays.
Q: How long will my spray tan last?
A: Spray tans last approx. 5-10 days, longer for some. Preparing your skin prior to your spray by exfoliating is a key factor in the longevity of your tan. After care is the second factor in your tans life. Exercise, skin conditions, hormones and bath/body products can all create uneven post-tan fading. Please feel free to ask for info on the best products to use to keep your tan looking its best!
Q: What products should I avoid using with my tan?
A: Any products that contain mineral oils or sulfates should be avoided if at all possible. Lines such as dove, Oil of Olay and Jergen's are examples of products to avoid.
Q: Can I spray while pregnant?
A: DHA only penetrates the outermost layer of the skin and does not enter the blood stream. However, it is recommended all clients consult their physician before a spray service.
Q: What should I wear during and after my appointment?
A: Women: If you choose to wear a bathing suit or cotton undergarments, keep in mind there will be tan lines as the solution will not penetrate through clothing. Men: It is required that cotton briefs, shorts or a bathing suit is worn for the session.
After your session, dark, loose clothing is recommended to reduce rubbing or staining. Brown Bare suits are available for purchase for mess free marinating. Great for sleeping in your tan!
Q: How do I set up an appointment:
A: You can call, text, email or book online at 24/7!
