Custom Airbrush Spray Tan (handheld)

Tanning occurs when the skin produces pigment to protect itself from UV rays and permanent skin damage. In airbrush tanning, the tanning solution is applied by a technician using a compressor and spray gun. These tanning solutions contain the active ingredient DHA which reacts with the outer layer of skin to produce a bronzing effect, similar to what a traditional tan does. It must be emphasized that the pigments resulting from an airbrush tan do not provide UV protection. For most solutions, the color of the skin will continue to darken after the initial application, and the maximum color is reached within about a 4-8 hour period. Typically solutions also have a bronzer that provides an immediate tan effect and helps the technician to distinguish areas of the skin that have solution already applied. The majority of this bronzer will be washed off when showering after application.  Island Glow created our very own sunless solution for our clients with a violet undertone that delivers a natural, deep, mocha chocolate tan.  Our formula is vegan, paraben-free, does not contain any nut oils, made with organic ingredients and animal cruelty free. It contains anti-aging and skin tightening ingredients as well as acne fighting ingredients to deliver a true skin treatment.

This service takes a little more time (to customize) and requires an appointment but the results are so worth it!

How to achieve the Perfect Spray Tan

​Shave and Exfoliate well the night at least 48 hours before the day of your tan. You can shave the morning of your spray tan.  Be sure to wait at least 4 hours after your shower before your spray tan.

Do not have lotion or oily residue on your skin the day of your tan because it can create a barrier to the spray tan.  Remove makeup and deodorants prior to your tan.

Make sure to get manicures, pedicures, waxing or spa treatments before your appointment. If you are getting a pedicure immediately before your tan, we suggest asking them to not use lotion on your legs.

You can wear as much or as little as you’d like during your tanning session. If you choose to bring a swimsuit, underwear, or other garments during your session please know that bronzer will get on these items. Bronze will wash out of clothes but we suggest wearing dark clothing. We provide disposable undergarments free of charge. Many of our clients choose to tan topless to minimize tan lines. Our staff is professional, discreet and will do their best to make you feel comfortable during your session.

 

Be sure to bring loose fitting, dark colored clothing and flip-flops to wear after your session. Tight clothing can rub off the bronzer and create streaking. If it is raining, please wear loose pants, a jacket and bring an umbrella.

DO NOT GET WET for at least 4-8 hours after your appointment based on your spray tan artist's advisement. You  must not SWEAT, SHOWER, GET RAINED ON, or SWIM.  If you get wet, it can halt the DHA development process and cause streaking. 

When you shower will notice ‘tan’ running down the drain during your first shower.  This is normal…it is the cosmetic “instant bronzer” washing away as it is designed to do, leaving you with a beautiful bronze glow underneath!

Use only a lukewarm rinse shower after your spray tan, using only water, for about 1-2 minutes until the bronzer has washed off (water turns clear). Do not use any soap, shampoo, shave or exfoliate during this rinse. 

Be sure to MOISTURIZE after your first shower!  The key to a beautiful, long lasting tan is properly hydrated skin. We carry a great selection of tan extending moisturizers that will preserve your color, extend the longevity of the tan and will not strip the color. 

We recommend using our body wash for regular showers and shaving, followed up with our Body Butter or Lotion twice daily.  This will deliver mega hydration to the skin making the tan color darker and last longer.  Avoid products with alcohol and oil as they will strip your tan and create streaking. We also suggest applying our Tan Extender Lotion starting on Day 3-4 to lock in the dark color of your tan. You can keep applying every other night to extend the life of your spray tan.
