How does an airbrush spray tan work?
In airbrush tanning, the tanning solution is applied by a technician using a compressor and airbrush. These tanning solutions contain the active ingredient DHA that reacts with the outer layer of skin to produce a bronzing effect, similar to what a traditional tan does.
How long will an airbrush tan last?
A custom spray tan should last anywhere from 5-10 days. Proper skincare before and after will directly effect the length of your tan. Remember to always exfoliate, avoid lotions and perfumes, and remove makeup before. After tanning, moisturize and use gentle soaps or body washes.
Does airbrush tan darker?
Don’t worry. Your tan will be darker before your first shower ( 8-10 hours after your appointment ) because the airbrush solution contains a cosmetic bronzer that rinses off during your first shower. The cosmetic bronzer is just a teaser until your real tan develops underneath.

What are some tips for spray tan?
