WHAT IS SUNLESS:

Sunless is the application of a substance called dihydroxyacetone (DHA).

DHA is a simple carbohydrate, usually derived from sugarcane and sugar

beats. It is applied to the top layer of the skin’s surface (stratum corneum),

producing a chemical reaction with amino acids to produce melanoids,

which temporarily creates the appearance of a suntan until the skin is

exfoliated off through its natural exfoliation process. Melanoids mimic

melanin, which is the brown reaction your skin has when it is exposed to UV

light.

I like to think of the body as a banana. Once DHA is applied to the top

layer of the skin, it begins browning, just like the top layer of a banana as

air hits it. It takes about 1-2 hours to begin processing and up to 24 hours to

fully process, depending on the solution used.

Solution is a mixture of DHA, bronzer, botanicals, vitamins, minerals, and

fragrances that are applied to the body through a high pressure, low

volume airbrush gun to create the

most amazing tan.


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Pedicures/manicures should be done the day before the spray tan session. If done right before, the massage oils will cause problems with the tan. If done after, it will remove the tan. 

You should never shower right before the session. You may think that "clean skin" is good but many soaps, hair conditioners and shower products will leave an invisible film on the skin. This can cause the spray tan to develop patchy or streaky. Showering right before the session will hydrate the skin which means that all of the spray tan solution will not be absorbed resulting in a lighter desired result. DO NOT PEE IN THE SHOWER AFTER YOUR TAN.

Do not apply perfumes, oils, lotions or deodorant the day of the tan.

Shave/wax at least 24 hrs prior to session.

Do not sweat heavily or get wet at all while solution is developing prior to rinsing.  This will ruin the tan.

Do not touch your skin while developing. The product will transfer causing bronzed fingers/ palms.

No Dove products or products containing retinol. 

Wear loose clothing to session and loose cotton clothing to bed.

Avoid hot tubs, ocean and swimming pools, massages, pedicures, waxing, soaking in hot baths, anti aging/acne products, bug spray, tight cloths. All of these will cause your tan to fade faster. A tan extender is recommended if you plan on going on vacation to replenish your tan after swimming.
