FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will my tan last?
Your airbrush tan can last up to ten days it depends on how well you prep before and after care for your skin. Long hot baths or showers and exposure to chlorine will speed up the fading process. Using a tan extender designed to sustain the airbrush tan, or mixing body lotion with self-tanner, at least once daily, will extend the life of your tan by 50% to 75%.
How do I prepare for my airbrush tanning session?
Shower, shave, and exfoliate. After showering do not apply any body or face moisturizers, make up, or deodorant. Complete all hair/spa treatments and workouts before your tan. Wear loose, dark clothing or bring some to put on after your tan.
What should I expect after my appointment?
Although you may feel slightly damp during the hour following your tan, feel free to go about your normal daily routine. Remember to stay dry and avoid touching your skin to ensure that your tan dries flawlessly. Your tan will begin to darken over the next 2-3 hours. You may shower lightly after 8 hours, allowing some of the “cosmetic” tan to wash off, and letting your beautiful dark, golden glow appear. Limit exposure to pools and hot tubs, as this may fade your tan and note that the solution is water soluble and will wash out of clothes and sheets.
How do I take care of my spray tan?
Remain dry for the next 6-8 hours following your appointment. You must not sweat or get we until your first rinse off. Take short, warm showers using mild-non-scented soap. Shave with a light touch. Pat skin dry and moisturize using a mild lotion or Hush Hush Tan Enhancer. Avoid skin contact when applying perfume, applying only to clothes and hair.

How does spray tanning work?
How does the solution work? DHA (dihydroxyaceone), the safe active ingredient in our bronzing solution, is an FDA-approved keto sugar that produces bronze color without irritating or damaging the skin. It works on the top layer of the skin only and fades just like a real tan over approximately 7-10 days, depending upon how you prepare your skin before a tan, and your after-care treatment.
Is airbrush tanning safe?
Yes! DHA has been approved for cosmetic use by the FDA. It is considered nontoxic and non-carcinogenic. DHA based sunless tanning has been recommended by the Skin Cancer Organization, American Academy of Dermatology, The American Cancer Society, and the American Medical Association. Although there is no evidence that any of the ingredients in our tanning solution would cause a problem for nursing or pregnant mothers, please check with your doctor before receiving an airbrush tan.
Will the spray stain my hair?
