How does Airbrush Tanning Work?
Say goodbye to harmful UV rays and say hello to a beautiful, natural looking tan that you can airbrush on easily in the privacy of your own home.

All sunless tanning methods have a single common characteristic/ingredient called DHA (dihydroxyacetone). When DHA is applied to the skin, it interacts with the amino acids on the top layer of the skin to generate a tan on the skin. DHA does not dye the skin but actually makes the skins darken. Once the DHA solutions are applied to the skin, the skin will continue to darken for up to 12 hours. We have 5 different solutions to match everyone's skin tone! The tan is absolutely water-resistant and diminishes only as the dead cells of the skin flake off-usually in one to two weeks.

How long does it take to apply & how long will the tan last?
An airbrush tan typically takes only about 30 minutes start to finish. Remember you save the time it takes to schedule your salon appointment, wait time at the salon, and the time you spend driving to/from the salon!

  • Once the tanning solution is applied to your skin, you will continue to tan (darken) for up to 12 hours.
  • After 8-12 hours, take your shower and hydrate the skin.
  • Your tan will fade gradually just like a tan produced by the sun.
  • Most sunless tans last approximately 7 days. Just like with all tans, you lose your tan because your skin is exfoliating. Depending on how hydrated your skin is, will determine the length of time you maintain a tan.

What is DHA? Is DHA Sunless Tans Skin Therapy safe?
DHA is a simple sugar and non-toxic. Because its reactivity is quite high, it reacts very quickly with the amino acids on the top layer of the skin. Therefore, it cannot diffuse into the deeper skin layers. We have 5 different solutions with different levels of DHA to match everyone's skin tone!

Sunless Tanning therefore tans only the outer layer of the skin unlike a UV tan which tans several layers into the skin.

DHA has been available on the market for over 40 years and is FDA approved for the skin.

Sunless Tans is not a dye. The active ingredient works with the amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce a natural tan exactly like the sun, but without damaging the skin.

The solution does not contain UV protection. Always wear sunscreen.

Will it look Good on Me?
Yes, Sunless Tans Skin Therapy has taken the guess-work out of sunless tanning. We have five different formulas to match up to skin type, ensuring the most perfect, natural looking tan.

Airbrush Tanning vs. Foams or Lotions?
In today’s market, we are overloaded with choices. Creams streak and foams stain our hands and feet, not to mention the bad smell they create while developing. Sunless Tans’ airbrushing technique applies easily and sprays on as a mist which absorbs immediately into your skin. Airbrushing is the only safe and effective way to ensure an all over even tan without worrying about looking orange, being streaky, or staining your clothes. Say goodbye to the foams and creams, and say hello to the only way of producing a natural tan.

Does it Stain?
Sunless Tans formula contains a water and sugar base and this allows for any solution that may get on your clothes to wash out. We suggest dark cotton bikini or underwear shorts when spraying and to avoid nylon.

Will I Turn Orange?
No! Sunless Tans has spent a great deal of time in perfecting our blend of solution so this will not happen. Sunless Tans provides a golden-brown color.
