How long does the airbrush tan last?
This is a tricky one to answer. The age of the skin definitely plays a role; younger skin exfoliates at a slower rate. Is the person hydrated internally, do they drink enough water throughout the day consistently. Did they exfoliate properly before the applying? Do they moisturize properly with quality products? A good standard answer is it lasts 10+ days on healthy, well-maintained skin.
Does it turn you orange? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!
A quality product applied properly will not turn orange. Orange is something that has hung on to self-tanning since the Coppertone QT days in the 60's. DHA is much more refined and gives off much better color than in years past. Orange comes mostly from lesser quality. DHA is the most expensive ingredient in tanning solution. Many companies are cutting their manufacturing costs by trying to buy cheaper DHA , but @ Hawaiian Bronze Tanning & Spa we haven't! However, even the highest quality DHA can turn orange when over applied. Our well trained staff knows just the right amount to apply to each customer. Does it have a bad odor? A quality product will have a much better odor than a poor quality product. Some companies try and mask it with perfume, which smells good for about 5-10 minutes and smells worse as time goes on. Our solution is very nice smelling before and after and has a very mild French vanilla scent.
How long does it take to be airbrushed?
Application takes less than 5 minutes for two coats. It takes longer to get dressed and undressed than it does to apply.How long before I can take a shower? DHA needs any where from 6-12 hours to set up properly and react with the skin to give you the results that you desire. We generally recommend that you wait at least until the following morning before showering or perspiring.
Should I moisturize my skin before or after I get sprayed?
You should be moisturizing your skin at least once per day with a high quality lotion. This will slow the exfoliation rate thus extend the life of your tan. It will also allow your tan to wear more evenly as well. However, you should not apply moisturizer directly before having tanning solution applied to your skin, This could impede the penetration of the solution into the skin. Also, you should not apply moisturizer until after your 1st shower.
Will it rub off on my clothes or bed sheets?
There is a slight chance of the cosmetic bronzers coming off on clothing and bed sheets and pillowcases. This should wash out very easily , However, we always recommend that the client wear darker colored older loose fitting clothes. There are some fabrics such as silk that this may not wash out of, so caution is always recommended.
Will the solution discolor my hair?
Tanning solution will not penetrate the hair follicle and therefore will not discolor hair.
Will the solution discolor my nails?
We always recommend protecting the nails via some sort of barrier cream. This slows the penetration of the solution to the nail and keeps it from staining. If you have nail polish on it will not penetrate as well, just take caution with cuticles. This is more prevalent with spray booths because of the broadcast spray. Airbrush units are more controlled and therefore the operator can stay clear of such areas. Our staff is very proficient at avoiding these areas.
Why did the solution wash off in the shower?
Cosmetic bronzers are temporary bronzers that give you immediate color. The real color is the result of the DHA reacting with the proteins in you skin. The real color develops behind the cosmetic bronzers in 6-12 hours. It is the cosmetic bronzers the customer will see washing off in the first shower, the lasting color is what is left behind. Cosmetic bronzers have two very big reasons for being in the product.
• This allows you to see how the product is being applied and where which minimized application errors. We all like to see immediate results! You will walk out with a tan!
• Can I workout after being sprayed?
Same answer as with showering. You must give the DHA time to react with the skin before disturbing the application. You should wait at least until the following morning before sweating.
Will my swimming pool fade my tan faster?
Chlorine has a tendency to fade spray tan faster. Many swimming pools are using salt for filtration these days and will not affect your tan.
Can I spray tan and UV Tan in a tanning bed?
Absolutely! UV Free tanning looks great over a base tan and gives the customer better color than they have ever experienced, especially for people that tan redder normally. We recommend tanning in the bed first.Tan like you normally do, but DO NOT USE A TANNING LOTION.
