WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY "ON-LOCATION" or "MOBILE"?


Spray tans are taking off because they don’t require you, the client, to travel to a salon or store. You are hiring us for quality work, convenience and discretion. Who wants to go to the salon or makeup counter and deal with all the hassle?! We tan your body or apply your makeup while in the privacy of your home/ hotel room or condo, for out of town clients). …This means you do not ruin your new tan by getting marks from your seatbelt or have to worry about sweating your makeup off in the heat. We travel throughout the Phoenix metro valley. (Anywhere within the 101 & 202 general areas). Additional travel fees may be required.


WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOUR SERVICE OVER SPRAY TAN BOOTHS OFFERED IN TANNING SALONS?

The convenience and safety of an airbrushed spray tan compared to other ways of getting a tan is simply a far more attractive proposition for people who like to enjoy a nice even tan, all year around, and those who are avoiding traveling to the salon or makeup counter to deal with all the hassle! Services take place in the comfort and privacy of your residence ...and you do not ruin your new tan by getting marks ( ie. from your seatbelt!) or have to worry about sweating your makeup off in the heat! 

We won't bad mouth a Spray Tan Booth, but here's the thing...they are not for everyone. Booths can take some time to master, and if you're willing to spend your money, perfecting your routine in a booth (risking the first few times), then a Booth is very convenient.  In a booth however, some areas of your body get sprayed too light or too heavy- leaving you with an uneven tan.  Booths  can leave leave you blotchy and fade uneven.  And you never know when they change out - or if they change out - their solutions for fresher, newer ones.

Have you mastered the Booth?  Great!  ...But why take a chance looking blotchy when you know that every part of your body will be detailed by hand, leaving no streaks.


WHAT KIND OF SOLUTION DO YOU USE?

DO I HAVE TO BE NAKED?

You do not have to be naked. It is your choice how you want to look: if you want no tan lines, then you should be naked.  We offer disposable bras and thong underwear if you prefer. If you choose to wear your own underwear or a swim suit, please pick an old or dark colored suit.

HOW LONG DOES THE SPRAY TAN LAST?

Our body constantly ‘sloughs' off dead skin cells. Spray tanning only affects the outer layer of skin, so as your skin cells naturally shed, the spray tan will fade. Your spray tan should last 5-10 days, depending on your lifestyle and skin type. But you can prolong the "sloughing process" if you look after your skin by moisturizing every day with a hydrating lotion. After your first shower, using moisturizer on your skin daily helps keep your tan looking great! Tanners who maintain the proper pH and moisture levels of their skin achieve darker, richer, prolonged color. With follow-up spray applications or by using the recommended tanning lotions we provide, you can maintain your tan to keep it looking fresh! The airbrush tan is completely safe and is FDA approved. The solution does not contain UV protection. (Please remember to wear sunscreen! )


HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?


Shower before your Spray Tan appointment! You need to remove moisturizer, deodorant, makeup and sweat. Do not apply anything to your akin after showering.

Shave & Exfoliate. Concentrate extra on dry areas such as knees, feet, elbows and ankles. Try The Body Shop’s Exfoliating Skin Towel, $8.00 or Bed, Bath & Beyond’s Hydro Towel, $5.99.

Clothing. Wear loose, dark clothing to your appointment. Remember to also wear sandals.

Don’t be shy. The less you wear, the better the results. If you feel more comfortable wearing your bathing suit or underwear, go ahead. Otherwise take advantage of the disposable panties that we have available for you to use. 


HOW DOES THE SPRAY APPOINTMENT WORK?

We offer individual spray sessions for both men and women. The appointment takes about 40 minutes. We have a complete enclosed tent that can be set up anywhere.  The tan is achieved by precisely misting the body with a spray that has an instant cosmetic bronzer. Any overspray is caught in the tent and filtered fan. There is a faint smell of coconut, and that is all! The tanner contains a certain percentage of DHA (DiHydroxyAcetone), a colorless sugar which reacts with the Amino acids in the dead layers of your skin and develops over 6-8 hours to provide you with a lasting glow, like you just came back from vacation! Once the tan is set, the tan will fade gradually like a "real" suntan.



HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY SPRAY TAN AFTER THE APPOINTMENT?

Wear loose dark colored clothing after you spray tan.

Do not shower/bathe/swim or get wet for at least 8 hours, as this can remove some of the tanning solution before it has had a chance to fully develop, causing streaks.

The first night, it is best to wear dark colored pajamas or dark baggy loose clothing in order to prevent disturbing your tan from fully developing and also to protect your sheets (do not sleep in silk sheets as these Will Stain!!!).

When you do shower after your spray tan, you may notice some brown staining in the water. Do not panic! Your tan is not washing off!!! This is just the cosmetic bronzer washing off revealing your tanned skin underneath.

Avoid soaking in the bath as this encourages the sloughing off of dead skin cells which will increase the fading of your spray tan.

Avoid swimming pools and hot tubs, as chlorine will increase the fading of the spray tan. 

Moisturize twice every day with a hydrating lotion in order to keep your skin glowing.
