Its simple, WE COME TO YOU! Some people don't have much time to spend because of work and even if they do, nobody wants to spend it sitting under the hot sun for hours. Also, nobody wants to leave their home to go wait in line to get an airbrush. An airbrush tan is the safest and quickest way to get that color and glow you want. Each session takes about 15-20 minutes and there is no mess at all. The best thing about an airbrush tan is that it is completely safe. Unlike the tanning beds, with an airbrush tan, you will not be exposed to UV rays which can cause skin cancer.
How long does the airbrush tan last?
An airbrush tan can last up to 5-7 days, sometimes even 10 days. it all depends on how you take care of your skin. There are many before and after care products specially made for tanned skin, such as tan extenders, special body wash, and moisturizers (will be sold on this website soon). Most importantly, you should maintain the tan by following up with applications, to keep the natural, healthy, glowing look from fading.
Why is airbrush tanning better than UV tanning?
It is a easier and much faster way to get to that island colored skin you have been wanting. Some people also have very sensitive skin or might have a hard time catching color while tanning in the beds. One airbrush tan session is equivalent to about 7 UV sessions. If you always have a hard time catching color in the sun or the beds, an airbrush tan is perfect for you. No matter what, the color will stay! Airbrush tanning also prevents you from dangers such as skin cancer, fast aging, sun spots and sometimes very bad burns.
How can I prepare for an airbrush session for best results?
In order to get the best results, prior to your session, shower and exfoliate the skin. Make sure you don't apply any perfumes, lotions, deodorants, oils or anything that would prevent the tan from setting correctly on your skin. You should also shave or wax at least 12 hours before your session. Make sure you have no jewelry before and hours after your session.
What should I wear during my session?
It is important for men to wear shorts, boxers or swimming trunks. For women, you can wear anything that makes you feel comfortable. Some women don't like tan lines and some do. There are many things women can wear depending on the type of tan lines they wish to have. After your session, it is important to wear loose fitting clothing so the airbrush wont be affected by tight clothing, such as tight jeans. Avoid wearing nylon, silk, or wool because the DHA does not react well with those fabrics.
Can an airbrush be removed?
NO, an airbrush cannot be removed once it has set on your skin and it cannot be washed off. The only way you can remove your tan is by letting it fade naturally with time. You can also gently exfoliate your skin but make sure YOU DO NOT SCRUB TOO MUCH!

What if I am a person that can't normally get a tan?
