2.Do you customize the solution?
By taking several factors into
consideration- your skin type, hair color, event, and most importantly what color
you desire I will expertly customize the tan to your skin type and needs. Ultimately the DHA decides the color of your tan by how long you leave the color on before showering in the 24 hour acceleration period.
3. Do I need to worry about orange tones or streaks?
Absolutely not. My solution is made with the highest quality DHA that is derived
from organic sugar beets and sugar cane instead of beta-carotene (carrot
extract). This guarantees that your tan will be golden brown and odor free. In addition my high level of expertly trained experience you can be assured to be in good hands!
4. How should I prepare for my tan?
I highly recommend that you exfoliate and shave one day prior to your tanning
session. Dove products and bar soaps should be avoided before and throughout the tanning lifespan.
Exfoliating is very important because it will help your tan last longer. The best way to do this is to use my You Glow Girl in combination with a moist washcloth .Please avoid using sugar,scrubs with heavy oils that will leave a residue on the skin for some time, effecting your tan , or salt scrubs that ate extremely drying.
It is also important to schedule manicure/pedicures, sugaring, and/or waxing appointments the day
before your session. Showering should be done the day of at least 4 hours prior.
5. What should I wear to my appointment?
It is best to wear dark, loose fitting clothing and flip flops. Loose fitting clothing prevents sweating and there is cosmetic bronzer in the solution, there is a chancethat it can rub off on clothing. It washes out of most materials, but it is better to be on the safe side and not wear anything light in color.
6. What should I wear during my treatment?
Ladies, you are welcome to wear as little or as much as you are comfortable
wearing- just keep unwanted tan lines in mind! Gentleman, we request that you
wear underwear or swimwear.
7. How long does the appointment take?
The appointment is set for exactly 20 minutes, so it is very important to be
punctual ( but please not early or late) and be completely prepped for your session.
8. How long should I wait before I workout or shower?
Our uniquely desingned solurions let you control the color of your tan. Showering may take place anywhere from 8-24 hours. 8 hours to a light golden tan , 24 hours to your tans full darkness.
An Express tan can be showered anywhere after 4 hours of your tanning session (your express tan will continue to darken slightly for up to 24 hours – with showering or sweating avoided).
9. How long will my tan last?
This depends on several factors including your skin type, skin cycle, lifestyle, and
care. It should last for the minimum of a week and has the potential to last as long
as two weeks if taken care of properly. The best thing that you can do to increase
the longevity of your tan is to apply a tan extender spray full of extra
Moisturizer once a day. Also, try to avoid activities that speed up your skin’s
natural exfoliation process. Keep in mind that long showers/baths, hot tubs, heavy
sweating, and swimming in salt water and/or chlorine all tend to dry out your skin.
10. I have very fair skin, will an airbrush tan still look natural?
Yes. I will customize a solution that will work with your specific skin tone.
However, if you are new to spray tanning, i suggest selecting my Smooth Latte solution perfect for every skin type!
11.Why does my face tan fade faster?
Yes your face if you chose will be tanned and contoured at your appointment
The fading is due to several reasons. First, facial skin is thinner than skin found on other
parts of the body. The face is also more exposed to the environment and endures
more frequent washing. In addition, makeup, anti-aging creams, astringents, etc.
tend to break down the tan more quickly.
12. Will my air brush tan protect me from the sun?
Unfortunately, it does not, so remember to wear SPF!
13. Why do some sunless tans start to become patchy when they fade?
Some tanning solutions contain alcohol , low grade DHA , heavy dyes in the color guide bronzer and / or are sprayed on by inexperienced tanners with little or no professional training.
You will find none of this here which will guarantee a non patchy fading tan.
14. Will really dry skin affect my air brush tan?
Dry skin may cause the tan to fade unevenly. (This is often more of a concern
during the winter months.) If you have dry skin, i recommend that you
moisturize twice a day for a week leading up to your tanning session. I suggest
that you also apply our barrier lotion to dry areas on your skin before your
15. Is sunless tanning safe for pregnant and breast feeding women?
The active ingredient, DHA, has never been tested extensively on pregnant or
breastfeeding women. We simply request that clients ask their doctor for an
approval before they book a session.
