As I reflect on 30- Here are 30 things I’ve learned in 30...
All Hand Airbrushing- a very unique process. Spray Tan!
What makes our SPRAY tanning process unique? For one thing, our custom tans are applied by our fully-trained staff – not by a machine. Our true hand SPRAY tanning process combines artful body contouring and natural-looking coverage for your best tan ever! After our consultants perform their initial evaluation – they airbrush each client by hand – allowing for ultimate coverage with no streaks or patches – paying attention to certain areas that may need extra sculpting or color detail.
Worried it won’t be the color you envisioned? No worries there, as our tans are completely customized with colors that are formulated to blend perfectly with your skin tone in a wide variety of colors. Spray booth tanning falls short of this by offering you a very narrow range of colors- generally 3 tones only. Our consultants are trained to specially enliven your look and give you the natural glow you crave.
Skin replaces itself naturally every 28 days. Twenty-five percent of skin is exfoliated each week, causing a UV-tan to wear away. Sunless spray tans affect only the top 25 percent of skin. Sunless tanners should use a tan-extending program to maintain the level of the sunless tan longer.
The airbrush tanning solution
The solution affects only the dead skin cells. Your skin has a build up of dead skin cells on top of it. The thicker the layer, the sooner it will rub off. If you exfoliate, the layer will be very shallow, and it will take a while for it to “build up”. Your tan will last longer!
Prior to your tan, it is important to use either an exfoliating mitt, a pre-tan scrub, and products that don’t contain any oils.

If you use something that contains oils, the oily barrier can stop the airbrush tanning solution from absorbing into the skin properly.
Sunless Tan Maintenance (Life of your Airbrush Tan)
We recommend that after every five weeks of airbrush tanning, let your skin rest for 10 days. This allows you to completely lose your sunless tan periodically, which helps eliminate patchiness or uneven areas of wear. These areas are caused by normal contact with clothing and other surfaces, which cause unintended exfoliation. Healthy, moist skin will retain the results of your sunless tanning session longer. Spray tan results will vary by individual.
The life of your airbrush tan depends on the how well you take care of your skin. Moisturize at least twice a day. If you are going to shave, do not use shaving cream or gel. Use regular hair conditioner. Tanning extender is good to use to extend the life of your tan (recommended for vacations). Keep in mind that the DHA (active ingredient in the extender) can dry out your skin. Using the extender once a day, along with a heavy moisturizing cream once a day will be the best way to extend your tan! If at all possible, you should try to avoid contact with chlorine or excessive sweating inside of closed toed shoes, as both can lead to premature fading of a airbrush tan.
Lady of Sun also offers and recommends our After Tan products! They are always Tried & True- and will extend your tan while hydrating your skin. We believe in quality versus quantity. We want you to have long lasting results instead of returning after only a few days!
