Spray Tanning

Straight from mother nature herself

Spray tanning is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body.

This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that interacts with your own skin’s chemistry to turn it tan, or bronze.

This temporary effect generally lasts from 3-7 days and is completely safe for your skin (although it doesn’t provide any protection against the sun’s rays).

The results you can get from tanning sprays are generally very good.  

The mist is administered by one of our staff with an airbrush or airgun.

The brands of solution we carry are Sunfx and Norvell

5 things before your spray tan:

1.  Make sure you shave or wax before your appointment.

A lot of people say to do it a day or two before (so your pores close) but that only applies if the solution is dark or has a bronzer in it.  

2.  Be sure to exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment.

It’s important to slough off as much dead and dry skin as possible before applying any self tanner or tanning spray.  

3.  Try to remove moisturizers, makeup and deodorant before you spray tan.

These products contain ingredients like oils that can make it hard for the main ingredient in self tanning spray to bind to your skin. This could cause your spray tan to look streaky and blotchy.  

4.  Right before application, put a little Coconut oil on your knees, ankles, elbows, and palms.  Wear a shower cap.  We will provide both.

These are areas that can get a little darker, or weirder than the rest of your skin.  You’ll have to experiment with this, but protecting these areas from absorbing too much DHA is generally a good idea.  You could also wipe those areas down a bit right after the spray is applied.

5.  Try to keep the spray tan solution on overnight and don’t put on any moisturizer until the next day.

That means no showering, using soap, or any moisturizer for at least 8 hours.  You could shrink that time down a little, but you won’t get the best results if you do.  The color starts to develop within an hour or two and really kicks in within 3-5 hours.

FAQ

What is a Spray Tan?

We evaluate your skin tone and customize our tanning solutions to best fit your needs and your skin tone.  Our trained technician will airbrush you in our private Marble spray tanning area.

Before your spray tan:

Exfoliate your skin completely.  Do not wear any lotions, makeup, deodorants or perfumes prior to your visit.  Make sure you shave/wax any unwanted body hair and moisturize using anything besides Dove products.

What do I wear or don’t wear?

Everyone is different, the all-natural tanning solution will wash out of most fabrics, so you can wear whatever you want, dark colors work best. Some clients feel comfortable wearing swimsuits, shorts, or tank tops.  Namaste does supply disposable underclothing if you prefer.

Will I look orange?

No! The DHA in the tanning solution will react naturally with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a “tan” similar to that you would have from the sun.

How long does it last?

The life of your spray tan depends on how you take care of your skin.  Most commonly the life of a tan is 10-14 days. Moisturize twice a day with coconut oil, and avoiding exfoliations until you are ready for you next tan will help.  Some products like Band-Aids, facemasks, anti aging or anti blemish products or bar soaps can fade your tan quicker.
