Organic Spray Tan
All natural, air-brushed tans are a healthy alternative to UV tanning and toxic chemicals.
Wicked Beauty Lounge provides our customers with a formula that has over 50 anti-aging and hydrating ingredients, which not only gives you a natural glow but nourishes your skin. We separate ourselves from our competition by keeping our products healthy and pure so that your skin gets the best care.
What is the active ingredient?
All sunless tanning solutions contain the active ingredient DHA (dihydroxy acetone). It is derived from sugar; synthesizes with the skin’s proteins, including amino acids in the outermost layer of the skin. DHA is approved by the food and drug administration for use in sunless tanning products. OrganicTan works with your natural pigments in the epidermis (top layer) of the skin to produce a safe, natural tan.
When should I book my organic spray tan?
We recommend booking your Organic Spray Tan 1-2 days prior to your vacation or 1-3 days prior to your special event (such as wedding or grad, etc.) Keep in mind that there is no SPF in your tan and it does not protect you from the sun. We recommend using an alcohol-free sunscreen.
Why didn't I get as dark this treatment as I did with my last session?
Due to the ever-changing chemistry of the body, there are times of the month that the body may be less receptive to DHA. Some people can even be DHA resistant. Excessive perspiration during development time may dilute the solution and thus will not allow the DHA to absorb into the skin properly. Also, if the skin has residual oil or moisturizer on it, this will block the DHA and prevent the skin from reacting and changing colours. (Ask us about the pH balancing option. It will go to work to get rid of the skins daily body oils perfumes and hidden dry skin, resulting in a perfect tan.)
What products should I avoid to make my tan last longer?
Bar soaps, products with alcohol, Sodium Laureyl Sulfate (SLS) and mineral oil, as well as petroleum-based products will all contribute to your tan fading more rapidly.
Avoid long hot baths and exposure to chlorinated water.
Avoid any skin care products with Alpha Hydroxy, Glycolic or Salicylic Acid. Retin-A and Retinol will fade your tan more quickly, as well.
We recommend our line of SunnaTan products to help extend the length of your tan.
How long does the tan last?
Your tan can last between 7-10+ days, depending on your skin care routine, such as moisturizing and how well you've prepped your skin. Ask us about our tan extenders for purchase at your appointment that will help you extend the life of your tan.
When can I shower?
Do not shower for a minimum of 12 hours. We recommend waiting 24 hours after your spray tan for optimal colour results! Final results won’t be seen until after you have your first shower.
Will the color rub off or stain my clothes or sheets?
Prior to your first shower the bronzer may slightly rub off on lighter clothing and sheets. If it does, being a natural sugar based solution it should wash out very easily. We always recommend following your regular stain-removal procedure to be sure.
Is it safe while pregnant?
Many pregnant and breastfeeding mamas love getting spray tans and using our SunnaTan products! Our products are all-natural and organic, after all. See the ingredient list below and consult with your doctor proper to your appointment if you have any concerns.
TAN RESULTS can be expected when you let your tan develop for a FULL 24 HOURS.
Avoid any skin to skin contact prior to your first rinse. Be especially mindful of your hands.
SWEATING: avoid any activity that would result in sweating until after your initial rinse.
SLEEPING: Wear loose, dark clothing to bed. The bronzer may rub off on your bedding and clothing, however, nothing will stain. Do not rest your fingertips on your face or body, and limit skin-to-skin physical contact with others (cuddling, breastfeeding) to avoid colour transfer. Socks and mittens can help prevent color transfer to hands/feet.
HANDS: wash your PALMS 30 minutes after your tan, pat dry and lightly moisturize your hands with a tan safe lotion.
SHOWER at the recommended time instructed by your airbrush artist ( Advanced Solution: 12-24 hours, Quickie Tan 4-6 Hours, Clear Solution 1-5 Hours)
Do NOT wait longer than you have been advised to avoid over processing. (The bronzer, not your tan, will rinse off during your first shower.) You may not see any colour after your first rinse, do not panic!
This is a RINSE ONLY, do not use any soaps until 24 HOURS after your tan. YOU WILL CONTINUE TO DARKEN AFTER YOUR FRIST RINSE, your full tan will appear at 24 HOURS.
PAT your skin dry and avoid any excessive rubbing with your towel.
You can still shave while you have a tan; however we do not recommend doing it daily. Always use a new razor and SunnaTan Coconut Oil to act as a buffer between the razor and your skin.
Use our mild hydrating SunnaTan body wash, for the duration of your tan. Do not use soaps and body wash with synthetic fragrances containing alcohol.
MOISTURIZE twice a day with an alcohol-free, paraben-free lotion. Use lotions that are without synthetic fragrance and alcohol. Face cleansers and moisturizers containing salicylic acid and/ or benzoyl peroxide are not recommended. We always recommend our Tan safe SUNNATan Products.
PROLONG your tan by using SunnaTan easy to use sunless tanning extenders, or use them on their own for a DIY glow.
Spray perfume on your clothes, rather than directly onto your skin.
Your airbrush tan does not protect you from the sun. Please use an alcohol-free sunscreen.
When your tan is beginning to fade, use SunnaTan exfoliating glove to help even out your skin tone and prep for your next airbrush tan.
