At the same time, you don’t want to pay the price of exposure to damaging UV rays. UV-free airbrush tanning could be exactly what you need to give yourself that healthy glow you are looking for without the risks that come with sunlight.
What are the Advantages of Airbrush Tanning?
When it comes to artificial tanning, there are several options that may come with a cost such as tanning lotions that add an orange tint to your skin or tanning beds that expose you to harmful rays. Airbrush tanning is a popular solution that can give you a tan that looks authentic. Put yourself in the talented hands of a professional at our spa and you can expect excellent results.
An even tan without any streaks can give your spirits a boost. It is important to remember that spray tan solution does not include sunscreen. You’ll still need to wear your sunscreen, especially on your face, if you are going to be exposed to the sun in order to avoid potential damage down the line.
How Do Spray Tans Work?
Spray tanning solutions use dihydroxyacetone, otherwise known as DHA. This chemical is a form of carbon sugar that causes a reaction in your skin, affecting the amino acids that are at the surface. You can choose from different solutions to produce a light tan or opt for a darker shade. You may not see your final results until the next day.
You’ll want to avoid any extreme forms of exercise that could cause excessive perspiration. Be gentle with your skin when showering. Dry yourself off lightly with a towel and use unscented moisturizers to keep your skin healthy. Don’t shave every day. Otherwise, you may cause exfoliation that can make your tan fade more quickly. Hair removal products can take off your tan and should be avoided. Your tan will gradually fade away. When it does, you can go back for your next session.
