What? Get a Tan Without the Dangers of the Sun? Impossible!

With the risk of sun cancer evident in traditional tanning methods such as direct sunlight and tanning booths, sunless tanning products have become a popular alternative to getting a golden tan.

The most popular method of sunless tanning is through products you apply on your skin, such as creams, lotions, foams, gels and sprays, which turn our skin from pasty white to a crisp tan. But, there are also tanning pills and sunless tanning mist that can be professionally applied at a salon through a machine or even an airbrush artist.

But how do these products work: The human skin is made up of two main layers, the inner, or dermis and outer, or epidermis. When it comes to tanning, the layer we are most interested in is the epidermis. The epidermis has two layers, the stratum basale and the stratum corneum. The deeper layer is the stratum basale, and that is the layer that is affected by tanning in the sun. The outer epidermis is the stratum corneum. This is the layer where the sunless tanning products react. So, in general the outermost layer gets dyed temporality. But, each tanning product works slightly different.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective sunless tanning products are ones containing the chemical dihydroxyacetone, better known as DHA. DHA is a colorless sugar, and as it interacts with the dead cells in the stratum corneum, a color change occurs. Color resulting from the DHA ingredient lasts about five to seven days. DHA can be found in sunless tanning lotions, creams, gels and sprays. Check product labels to see if the product contains DHA.

DHA is also found in the formulas used in sunless tanning booths. When the customer follows the directions properly, these sunless tanning booths can produce an instantly flawless tan. These tanning booths are equipped with an air brush delivery system that sprays on a tanning solution comprised of DHA and bronzers. So, the bronzers give an instant color and the tanning solution with DHA gives a deeper color that allows this instant tan to last up to a week.

More about bronzers: Bronzers can come as powders and moisturizers, and are often also combined with other self-tanning methods. A bronzer applied alone creates a tan that can easily be removed with soap and water. Bronzers work more like a make-up, tinting the skin temporarily. However, as noted, other self-tanning products can contain bronzers to give an instant color, while the other chemicals take longer to appear. So, a bronzer can act alone or help out with a fellow sunless tanning lotion.

Another ingredient found in self-tanners is the amino acid tyrosine. Makers of these products claim that tyrosine increases melanin formation in the skin, which then accelerates the tanning process. In fact, you may have heard these products referred to as tanning accelerators. This ingredient is usually found in sunless tanning pills or lotions.

Finally, sunless tanning pills work through a chemical usually used to add color to foods: canthaxanthin. When it comes to self-tanners, canthaxanthin is most commonly found in tanning pills. Once the canthaxanthin is consumed, the chemical is deposited throughout the body, including the skin, resulting in an orange-brown color. These canthaxanthin-containing pills also work to accelerate a suntan. The FDA has not approved this as a tanning agent, however.

Going back to the layers of skin, it is important to understand that millions of dead skin cells leave the body every day. This is why our tans disappear. Since sunless tanning products work on the outermost layer of skin, the color will dissipate in less time than a regular suntan. We actually have a new epidermis every month or so! So, if sunless tanning is the only method of tanning you are using, it is important to maintain the tan by using your specific product every few days.

Airbrush tanning how to is similar to having your house spray painted. You have an airbrush applicator that is connected to an air compressor by a hose. A tanning solution, which contains DHA (dihydroxyacetone), is mixed with a bronzer to match the tan color you’d like your skin tone to be. This tan solution is sprayed on to your body evenly giving your skin a beautiful, natural bronze glow!

How dark your skin will tan depends upon the degree of DHA that is used in the solution. The tan usually lasts anywhere from 5 to 7 days and will eventually fade away over time. You can extend your tan by using moisturizers.

Air Brush Tanning

The popular sunless tanning today is called air brush tanning. Gone are the days of being a sun goddess. The ultraviolet (UV) rays are no longer a medical issue with sunless tanning, as well as a few of the side effects from too much sun, such as cancer, wrinkles and skin blemishes. You get the best of both worlds with a spray tan by getting a fine-looking golden tan without the health fears of outdoor sun tanning.

Airbrush tanning uses a time proven DHA formula to truly tan the skin a bronze color without harming the skin. The skin gradually darkens with DHA or dihydroxyacetone, which is a clear derivative of sugar cane, when it interacts with the amino acids on the dead surface cells found in the outmost layer of the skin. Coconut and cantaloupe are some of the natural extracts that might be included in the airbrush solutions, as well as several vitamins. These extract addtions yield the skin a glossy look and leaves it properly hydrated.

The tanning solution is airbrushed on with a fine mist uniformly over the body giving it a flawless look. To get rid of your tan lines or to even out your skin shade, the tanning solution is adjusted to your skin type. There are two types of applications, the handheld tanning airbrush being the first. There are sensitive areas of the body that the airbrush spray can be more spot on and thinned out a bit, such as the face and creased areas of the body like knees, elbows, neckline and wrists. The second type of airbrush application is a mechanized spray where you would remain motionless inside a booth and become sprayed all at once.

A benefit of acquiring a spray tan is that you can have a natural healthy glow year round. When sunless tanning first appeared on the market in the early 70′s it left your skin streaked orangish, and today the airbrush spray tans are so realistic looking. Having an airbrush tan applied by a trained professional will give you a nice even natural appearance. There are oodles of airbrush tanning systems or kits that you can acquire for home use, if you feel better about doing things yourself. With a bit of practice you too can study the skill and give your own natural airbrush tan.

To get superior results on your airbrush tan, it’s a good idea to take a shower and exfoliate using a satisfactory exfoliating lotion or soap. Using a sugar scrub or a salt scrub is the best. Deciding how well your spray tan turns out, can be subject on how well you exfoliated your body. As for the moisturizers or lotions, do not apply any of them until after you’ve had your airbrush tanning session. Keep in mind that you need to allow for a day lead time for a spray tan session if you have a planned affair.

After the air brush session the skin will continue to darken, so you’ll desire to shower after 10 hours and rinse off any of the solution that’s yet on the skins surface. After an airbrush tanning, the tan should last about 5 to 7 days and then naturally fade off. To stretch your tan for a longer period of time, make certain you use some type of hydrating daily moisturizer or tan extender application. Reasonable care is the main key for keeping your golden suntan even and to make it last longer. Airbrush tanning has become the latest wave to getting a glowing wholesome looking body all year round!
