About Airbrush Tanning

Natural Airbrush Glow

DHA is the main tanning ingredient used in all of airbrush tanning solutions. DHA is dihydroxyacetone, a carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound approved by the FDA for use in externally applied sunless tanning solutions. DHA is usually derived from a vegetable source like beets or sugar cane. Its properties as a skin darkener were discovered in the 1920′s but weren’t marketed as such until the 1960′s when Coppertone® introduced Quick Tan®. It was added to the FDA’s list of approved cosmetic ingredients in the 1970′s. DHA has only been approved for external use by the FDA. The FDA recommends wearing protective eyewear, nose plugs, lip balm and undergarments during your spray tanning session to eliminate inhalation or ingestion. Wearing these during your spray tan session is not mandatory, and is up to your discretion. However I have these on hand at all times, and they are complimentary during every spray tanning session.

Taking care of your Airbrush Tan

It is very important to take care of your skin/tan before and after your Airbrush tan, for maximum results. If all steps are not followed it may effect the development of the Airbrush tan.  Here are some great tips to help get the best Airbrush tan possible.  This will tell you how to prepare for your tan as well as maintaining it!  Remember the Airbrush tan solution is not a sun screen.  It is important to apply sunscreen over the Airbrush tan when in the sun for long periods of time! 

Preparing for your Airbrush Tan

  • Exfoliate skin at least 8 hours before your Airbrush session to smooth skin for even tanning results. 
  • Spend a little extra time on knees, elbows, feet, and hands. 
  • Shave at least 6 hours before your Airbrush tanning session. We always suggest shaving with soap and water only — no shaving cream, as shaving creams contain lanolin (an oil) that acts as a barrier between the tanning solution and the skin. 
  • Any waxing should be done 1-2 days prior to your Airbrush tanning. 
  • If skin is dry apply a light water based lotion lightly and evenly to skin at least 2 hours prior to your Airbrush tan. 
  • Do not apply oils at any time prior to or after your Airbrush tan. 
  • Remove make-up prior to your Airbrush tanning application for best results. 
  • After your Airbrush tan wear dark loose fitting clothing. Do not wear wool, nylon, or silk during or after your Airbrush application and for at least 8 hours as DHA may react with these fabrics and cause staining. 

After your Airbrush Tan

  • Wait at least 8 to 12 hours after application before you shower. This will allow time for the self-tanning reaction to occur on the skin.
  • Don’t worry if you see color wash off from your first shower, this is normal. What you see washing off is the immediate cosmetic bronzer and what is left behind is a beautiful Airbrush tan.
  • Do not apply moisturizer until after your first shower, for this could affect the immediate reaction of the Airbrush solution on the skin and cause streaking.
  • Do not exercise until after your first shower. 
  • Moisturize daily, especially after bathing, to maintain your Airbrush tan. For best results use a water based moisturizer. Don’t use oil based moisturizers, they can cause blotchy areas.
  • Do not exfoliate skin for at least 48 hours after your Airbrush tanning application. When you do exfoliate, do so gently and evenly to preserve an even Airbrush tan. 
  • If sun-bathing remember to wear a sunscreen. Airbrush products do not contain sunscreen. Although you look like you have a tan, you will still need a sunscreen to prevent your skin from burning.

How to maintain your Airbrush Tan

  • Airbrush tans can last from 4 – 10 days if cared for correctly. To maintain your Airbrush tan, make sure that you moisturize and use CORRECT products. Using the wrong products can cause your Airbrush tan to fade quicker than normal.
  • The following is a list of body care products that could potentially have a fading or blotchy effect on your Airbrush tan. This is only a guide and not every client will have an issue with these items or products. 
  • AHA products. 
  • Anti-acne products that exfoliate or dry the skin.
  • Anti-aging products that exfoliate skin. 
  • Bar soaps.
  • BHA products.
  • Retin-A products.
  • Body Hair Bleach Products.
  • Toners containing Alcohols or Witch Hazel can lighten a tan.
  • Facial masks and exfoliating scrubs.
  • Body spray, perfumes and bug spray when they are sprayed directly on skin. I recommend that you spray your clothing or spray into the air then walk through.
  • Hair inhibiting Lotions can cause your tan to yellow.
  • Exercising often or large amount of sweating can cause your tan to fade faster, especially in body fold areas.
  • Makeup remover cleaning products or oils.
  • Submersion in hot tub or swimming pool and sometimes even habitual long hot baths.
  • Using a loofah, mitt, scrub etc. for daily washing.
  • Waxing unwanted hair or depilatory hair removal products.
