Annie with Danielle
Lewis of East Calder (Danielle is regional winner
of "Quiz" Model Competition)
does it take?
A. Allow 30 minutes for an appointment 5 min to get
ready, 10 minutes for the airbrush tan, and 10
minutes to dry and 5 minutes to get dressed again.
preparation is required?
A. To achieve the best results, shower, exfoliate and
moisturise before you come in.
Q. What should I
A. Have loose clothing to wear
after being tanned, for the tanning session itself
wear an old bikini/underwear.
Q. Is the tan instant?
A. We used the Norvell
Airbrush Tanning System that has been developed by
professionals and works in two stages. Firstly a
cosmetic bronzer will give you an immediate tan, which
will fade as your DHA tan appears. Both are balanced
so that your initial colour will be the same as the
tan which develops (the science bit: DHA is the active
ingredient in all sunless tans). You can control the
colour of the tan; one application for that healthy
glow, and a follow up session more for a totally bronzed look.
How long will my tan last?
A. It will last between 4 and 7 days, depending on
your skin type.
To maintain it for longer you should also apply a
moisturiser daily after the session.
Will my tan give me protection in the sun?
No. Our airbrush tanning system does not contain UV
filters. Always remember to use a sunscreen for your
skin if you are sunbathing as well.
What is DHA?
A. DHA is the active ingredient in all Airbrush
Tanning Solution. It interacts safely with the cells
in the top layer of skin, causing them to darken and
give a healthy looking tan.
to the American Academy of Dermatology, the most
effective sunless tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone
(DHA) as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless
chemical (it is derived from glycerin) that interacts
with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a
brown colour change. Since these dead skin cells are
constantly being shed, the colour change produced by
DHA usually lasts about five to seven days.
DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known
toxicity. DHA has been listed with the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in
cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years.
Q. I have
blonde hair, will the Airbrush Tanning Solution stain
A. No, however if you have long hair it is advisable
to tie it back while your face is being sprayed.
Q. Do you
also do Guys and OAP's?
A. Yes we will do anyone, Men should shave first,
and if you are "very" old we
may need a little more solution (TO GET INTO ALL THOSE WRINKLES!)
- but at NO extra charge!
