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.

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.
