What is airbrush tanning?
Airbrush tanning is the latest and greatest beauty service to hit the tanning industry. An airbrush artist uses a high-tech spray gun to apply a tanning solution to the client’s skin. The spray gun is attached to an air compressor and the solution is applied in the same form as if one were spray painting. Hello golden bronze!
Is airbrush tanning safe?
Yes, absolutely! Sunless tanning is a safe and a proven method of getting that bronzed tan. As with any personal product, sensitivity can occur, but is rare. The active ingredient DHA is derived from sugar beets and has been FDA approved for topical application and used for tanning creams since the 1960′s. DHA has also been used in food and cosmetics for decades. When DHA comes in contact with the amino acids of the skin, it creates a natural chemical reaction that causes the skin to appear tanned.
Does airbrush tanning protect me from the sun?
NO, airbrush tanning DOES NOT protect you from the sun. We recommended that a sunscreen be used at any time you go out into the sun. Protect that skin!
How long does airbrush tan last?
An airbrush tan can last 7 to 12 days. Results will vary depending on a few factors; moisturizing, skin type, and exfoliation prior to service. Keeping your skin hydrated will prolong your sunless tan. Like a suntan, the sunless tan will fade gradually as your skin exfoliates. Doing so prior to your appointment will give you longer-lasting results!
How often can I airbrush tan?
Tanning can be performed every 5 to 7 days if desired. Airbrush tanning back to back on the same day, is not advised, as it does not give the DHA time to set between tans.
How long does it take for an airbrush tanning session?
Full body sessions take less than 5 minutes to apply. The solution dries in seconds.
Will airbrush tanning work on fair-skinned people?
Yes, we have different color levels for different skin tones and can accommodate every person.
Do I have to take off all of my clothes for the application?
No, this is an individual choice. You may wear a bathing suit, undergarments, or be completely nude; it’s entirely up to you.
How do I prepare for my Lash and Sugar Co. airbrush tan session?
Shower and exfoliate (we recommend Lash and Sugar Co. 100% natural exfoliating scrub) prior to your session. Since the chemical process affects only the top layer of skin, as your skin naturally exfoliates, your tan will go with it. Your skin must be smooth and clean to get a smooth, clean tan.
What should I wear after my airbrush tan appointment?
Wear loose fitting, dark clothing and flip-flops after your airbrush tan session. Tight or rough clothes, such as jeans, will rub on your skin and reduce the effect of your tan. The tanning solution may stain silk, wool and synthetic fabrics, so these should not be worn prior to showering the solution off.
