During the first 12 hours after your Spray Tan, the bronzer may slightly rub off on to lighter colored clothing and sheets. if it does, being a natural sugar based solution it will wash out very easily. Brides should come approximately 1-2 days prior to their wedding, giving them ample shower time and to avoid the bronzer transferring onto the dress. Once you have showered there should be no color transfer onto your dress.
DHA is approved by the food and drug administration for use in sunless tanning products. DHA (dihydroxy acetone) is derived from sugar; synthesizes with the skins proteins, including amino acids in the outermost later of the skin. The organic spray tan works with your natural pigments; in the epidermis (top layer) of the skin to produce a safe, natural tan.
Bar soaps, products with Sodium Laureyl Sulfate (SLS) and mineral oil as well as petroleum based product will all contribute to your tan fading more rapidly. Avoid long hot baths and exposure to chlorinated water. Any products with Alpha Hydroxy, Glycolic or Salicylic Acid, Retin-A and Retinol will fade your tan more quickly as well.
Spray Tans have come a long way in the past years. The answer is No. Our solution was created to give you the most natural looking tan. However, it is important to know why some people experience the "Orange Tan". The active ingredient in all sunless products is (DHA) and once you increase the DHA there becomes a "too much of a good thing" it can start to go from brown to orange. Bumping up color in small increments allows us to know what your skin likes, and to ensure you never end up looking orange.
12 hours is the minimum for face and your body. We know that the face is an area that people cleanse more often. Please ask us about our face tan extender. If you are someone who needs to wash your face more than your body, we strongly recommend our face tan extender.
due to the ever-changing chemistry of the body, there are times of the month that the body may be less receptive to DHA. Some people can even be DHa resistant. If a client perspires excessively during development time, this may dilute the solution and this will not allow the DHA to absorb in to the skin properly. Lastly, if the skin has residual oil or moisturizer on it, this will block the DHA and prevent the skin from reacting and changing colors.
Your tan can last between 5-10 days, depending on how often you maintain your skin care such as moisturizing. Ask us about our face and body lotion extenders for purchase at your appointment or shop online through my link on Instagram. These extenders will help you extend your tan past 10 days.
Do not shower for 12 hours after your spray tan! final results wont be seen until after you have your first shower. Keep in mind everyone is different. Some people love the look of their tan with out showering and prefer to wait as long as possible and others prefer the look of their tan after their shower.
Yes, absolutley! We strongly recommend that you continue to use sunscreen while you have an OrganicTan as spray tans offer no UV protection. Please use sunscreens without alcohol or harsh chemicals.
