MYSTIC TAN & AIRBRUSH TAN
 

WHAT IS DHA & HOW IS IT SAFE?

DHA is dihydroxyacetone, a carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound approved by the FDA for use in externally applied sunless tanning solutions!  DHA is usually derived from a vegetable source like beets or sugar cane.  Its properties as a skin darkener were discovered in the 1920's but weren't marketed as such until the 1960's.  It was added to the FDA's list of approved cosmetic ingredients in the 1970's.

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO PREPARE FOR MY TAN?

Shower, exfoliate, and shave at least 2 HOURS BEFORE your session.  Your shower and shaving should be with bar soap, DIAL, IRISH SPRING, IVORY, or ZEST.  These work best as body washes, gels, creams, etc. block the spray! NO DEODORANT!

 

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO SHOWER AFTER MY MY TAN SESSION?

In order for the DHA to fully set, we recommend waiting AT LEAST 4 HOURS before showering.  Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of your tan.

Working out, sweating, doing dishes, doing laundry, or performing any activity involving water within the four hours after your session may cause streaking and blotchiness.  Swimming pools/hot tubs have high chlorine contents and ocean water has salt that will bleach the tan results and cause streaking, these should be avoided completely!!

 

HOW MANY TAN SESSIONS WILL I NEED TO ACHIEVE THE COLOR I WANT?

You'll be tan after one session, but it may take additional sessions to achieve your desired color.  Once you reach your ideal color, you should be able to maintain it by tanning every four to five days.

 

ARE THERE WAYS TO ENHANCE MY TAN RESULTS?

Keeping your skin hydrated prior to tanning helps your skin absorb the tanning solution! i.e. drinking plenty of water, using a lotion with out mineral oil/petroleum HOWEVER, DO NOT MOISTURIZE AFTER YOUR SHOWER THAT PREPARES YOU FOR YOUR SESSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Frequently moisturizing after your session will also extend the life of your tan.  Apply moisturizer after showering, but not in the four hours after your session.

To achieve maximum results, try the Mystic Tan Trio Kit, which includes Moisturizer, Exfoliant and Touch-up spray so you can enhance, extend and perfect your tan!

Make sure any products that you put on your skin does NOT have MINERAL OIL OR PETROLEUM, as it will hasten the fading process!
