IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW WHEN GETTING AN AIRBRUSH TAN
Always exfoliate the skin prior to an airbrush tan, using an exfoliating primer or salt bath, a Dead Sea salt scrub is a good choice. Regular table salt is ok just mix it with your body wash on a lufa or wash cloth (We recommended you not use deodorant soap while using sunless tanning products) deodorant soap changes the PH levels (normal PH levels 4.5-5.5) and drys out the skin.
Skin is designed to exfoliate every 7 to 10 days on its own. However if you do not exfoliate prior to this service your skin may exfoliate in middle of your tan. Exfoliating will remove dead skin cells and helps with adhesion and allows for maxim benefit.
Skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis on the outside and the dermis on the inside. Whether you are talking about sun tanning or self-tanning, the epidermis is where the action occurs. The epidermis is also made up of layers. The deepest layer of the epidermis, called the stratum basale (basal layer), is the affected during sun tanning. The stratum corneum (horny layer) is the outermost layer of the epidermis -- it is this layer that is affected by most sunless-tanning products. Every day, millions of dead skin cells are sloughed off or worn away from the surface of your skin. In fact, every 35 to 45 days, you have an entirely new epidermis.
This is why tans from sunless- or self tanning lotions will gradually fade - as the dead cells are worn away, so is your tan. For this reason, most of these products suggest that you reapply the airbrush tan every week or two (depending on how your skin reacts to the product)·

After being airbrushed it’s a good idea to wear old, loose, clothing (during the drying process) even though this product has not been known to stain clothing it never hurts to be cautious. ·
Don’t shower for at least 6 to12 hours, depending on formula (Please know this product will be active on the skin for at least 12 hour and the longer you wait the darker it may become). Please use your scrub to remove any dark areas from feet, hands, and face. Then take a normal bath or shower (nothing pulsating, just gentle) lather the body evenly, and entirely using a moisturizing shower gel such as Dove or Olay. (While bathing you will see a brown color in the water this is ok its just the cosmetic mixed with the spray)·
Moisturize daily, covering the entire body to prevent drying and cracking. Use a tan extending lotion, sunless tanning lotion or some type indoor tanning lotion with bronzer as a moisturizer. These lotions can be used in or out of the sun to add color as needed to extend the life of your airbrush tan.·
Also, you can use a self tanning lotion, to touch up your face and legs, since most of us tend to wash our face a couple times a day, it may fade more rapidly, also we may shave our legs and that will also cause it to fade. ·
