MYSTIC TAN & AIRBRUSH TAN
WHAT IS DHA & HOW IS IT
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
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
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
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
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!
