There is nothing like that beautiful, bronze glow that comes with the summer sun. It makes that golden cast to your skin that makes you look and feel beautiful. You feel like you are the picture of good health when you have a tan during the warmest months of the year, and you want to continue to look that way when the weather changes. With Mystic Tanning at MacMed Spa, you can maintain your summer glow this fall. The best part of all is you can opt for a Mystic tan any time of year to have the appearance of an authentic tan without damaging your skin with the sun’s harmful UV rays.
What is Mystic Tanning?
Mystic tanning involves using a tanning machine that is sunless and uses a spray-on tan. You will stand within a private, self-contained system. A unique and advanced process is used to spray the Mystic tanning solution all over your body, ensuring you will have a uniform tan that looks like you have just been kissed by the sun.
The Tanning Myst is applied in such a way that you will have a flawless tan when your session is complete. At the same time, you will have peace of mind knowing that you did not subject yourself to the intense rays of the sun. Plan to have Mystic tanning all year long to keep your skin looking sun kissed.
How to Get the Best Results from Mystic Tanning
For the best results from Mystic tanning, you need to prepare your body ahead of time. You should take a shower before your session, and it is a good idea to shave during your shower. Exfoliation is important as well preparing the surface of your skin. Avoid makeup and any oils that could cause unsightly streaks from the Tanning Myst. Think of your skin as a blank canvas.
When you are about to enter the tanning booth, you will need to put a heavy amount of barrier cream on your hands and feet. Your hair will be tucked inside a shower cap; do not forget to take your ears out of the cap.
For the best, even coverage of the Tanning Myst, you should enter the private booth without any clothes. Any clothing that is worn, such as a bathing suit or undergarments, may become stained. It will be wet after the session, and you will need a change of clothing.
What to Expect After Your Session
Once your session is over, you should avoid a shower or exposure to water for at least four hours. Do not apply any lotions to your skin for that amount of time and avoid strenuous exercise that would cause perspiration. You need to give your Tanning Myst time to set. The Tanning Myst reacts with proteins that are present in your skin to give you that beautiful, bronze skin tone. It takes about three hours for the color to darken, reaching its optimal shade within 24 to 36 hours.
As your skin begins to exfoliate over time, your tan will gradually fade. Be aware that the Tanning Myst does not contain sunscreen. You will need to protect your skin to avoid a sunburn. Keeping your skin moist can help you to preserve your tan.
