What is an Airbrush Tan or Spray Tan and How Do I Prepare for One

Airbrush Tanning (or airbrush spray tanning) is very similar in principle to the tanning cream tube, except being applied using a spray nozzle gives you a much better end result. If you have been using tanning cream you should contact Spray Tan California at one of their two locations in Sacramento California or San Francisco California around the Berkeley California area and experience the difference.

The active ingredient in our tanning solution is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) or more commonly known as Glycerone. DHA is basically a simple carbohydrate derived from plants such as sugar cane or sugar beets. What a big scary name for a pretty simple harmless ingredient. In the 1970s the FDA approved and added DHA to their list of cosmetic ingredients. Going a little further DHA based Sunless Tanning is recommended by the Canadian Dermatology Association, American Medical Association, American Academy of Dermatology Association, and the Skin Cancer Foundation, so the FDA must have been right on approving this one.

The great news is it does not matter wherever you are and no matter what the season, you can always have that lovely Bronze skin tone and, yes, without spending hours in the sunshine, by Airbrush Tanning or Spray Tanning it’s simply safe and elegant, and a time saver.

5 recommended things to do for an awesome Spray Tan Experience.

1.) Shower or bath and exfoliate to detach any dead skin cells the day before your Spray Tan appointment. Personally I try and use soap that is not animal based just a good glycine soap for me.

2.) Do not use deodorants, perfumes, lotions or moisturizers before your Spray Tan appointment. Clean and natural is the best way to go, always.

3.) Along with not applying anything to your body, no makeup before your Spray Tan also. Most people don’t realize how beautiful they really are without hiding behind makeup. Really, why would anyone want to cover up their beautiful bronze skin after their tan ether?

4.) Be comfortable and wear loose fitting clothes after your Spray Tan is dry for at least 6 to 8 hours and wait at least that long before you shower.

5.) Even though some of the product may rub off in the first few hours the majority of the time washes right out of clothes with no problem. Be smart and just don’t wear white or your good clothes after your Spray Tan that is the safest thing to do. Plan ahead and bring your comfy clothes with you to your appointment and don’t forget your bathing suit or the under attire that you will be getting tanned in.
