Please read skin prep checklist before making an appointment.
A spray tan is when a solution containing DHA, Dihydroxyacetone, is sprayed onto the skin with a fine mist, interacting with our melanin, and creating an even looking tan that lasts 7 to 10 days.
Color will develop within 6 to 8 hours of application. However, the bronzer in the solution will create a tan effect immediately and help guide the spray tan artist.
If you rinse off the bronzer before the DHA interacts with the melanin, you will be left without a tan.
DHA is a natural ingredient that comes from sugar beta, and sugar cane, and is produced by our bodies as a vital component of every skin cell.
A cut apple, which is composed of sugars, will brown when exposed to air. Our skin reacts the same way, when sugar water is sprayed on it, and left exposed to the air.
The percentage of DHA creates the depth and tone of the tan. Over-application of DHA and over processing can result in an orange looking tan.
Our solution contains between 10% to 15% of DHA. Higher percentages and heavy application are not recommended.
Our solutions contain different base colors to match your undertone. Using the opposite color on the color wheel neutralizes undertones for an even looking tan.
Red base - great for olive skin.
Green base - great for warm skin - counters red hues.
Brown base - great for neutral skin - gives a deep chocolate look.
Violet base - great for cool skin - looks great on blondes.
Blue base - neutral, looks great on everyone.
A light even application reduces wetness and sticky residue.
Our solution contains anti aging and skin-firming ingredients including jojoba oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, green tea, aloe vera, cucumber extract, and chamomile which are all good for your skin.
It is recommended to leave the solution on for 6- 8 hours after application then lightly rinse off in the shower, no soap and pat dry. The bronzer may be seen in the tub.
No. A spray tan will not protect you from UV rays. It is highly recommended to wear SPF at all times when exposed to the sun.
A spray lasts anywhere from 7 to 10 days. However, skin prep, soaps, heavy sweating, chlorine, and ocean water will contribute to the life span of the tan.
Tanning lotions and mousse are great to use in between spray tans to maintain color longevity. All artificial tanning products contain the same active ingredient, DHA.
However, over application of any product with DHA will result in orange looking skin and may need to be removed before applying more tanning solution.
Too much DHA will likely turn the skin orange. Applying the mist in the correct amount using the proper color, according to your skin's undertone, will result in a very natural looking tan.
According to the FDA, spray tanning is considered safe when DHA is applied externally to the skin. It is not recommended to breathe it in. Keep your mouth and eyes closed while spraying the face.
Yes. Removing dead skin before the tanning solution is applied will result in a better-looking tan. Exfoliating can be done with a dry washcloth, rubbing off all dead skin cells.
The bronzer is rinsed off 6 to 8 hours after application with water only. A regular shower may be taken, using spray tan friendly soap, after 24 hours. Pat dry.
There is alcohol in artificial spray tanning products which can be drying to the skin. However, moisturizing agents are added to our solutions to help reduce dryness. You may apply moistruizer to your skin after rinsing off the bronzer.
Any barrier to the skin will reduce the effectiveness of the spray tan. Do not use any skincare products up to 3 hours prior, and exfoliate with a dry towel for best results.
Shaving naturally exfoliates the skin and most shaving products will strip the color. It is recommended to shave or wax prior to your appointment.
Bath bombs containing tan remover are used to remove it. Dove bar soap may do the job just as well.
You may tan whichever parts of your body you feel comfortable with, except for intimate areas. Leaving panties and a bra is most preferred. Dark colored undergarments will not be ruined with the spray tan, and any bronzer washes off in the laundry.
It is best to wear loose dark clothing. However, the bronzer in the solutions is known to be washable. Please remove all jewelry before your spray tan and leave expensive jewelry at home.
Raindrops or sweating right after your tan may result in a polka-dot tan.
Please bring an umbrella if it is raining, and do your workout after rinsing off the bronzer.
You will be given stickers, to step on, which protect the bottom of your feet while receiving your tan. You may wear flip flops home or any regular shoes.
A pH balance soap is best to use after your spray tan for longer-lasting results. Some soaps and body wash will strip the color off.
Some recommend, only using soap to wash the necessary areas, and rinsing the rest of the body without soap.
A tan toner is a product used to maintain the pH balance of your skin allowing the tan to last longer. It often comes in combination with a tanning moisturizer.
