Sunless Tanning FAQ’s
Q: What are my options for Sunless Tanning at Endless Sun?
You have two options
- Our MyMyst Spray booth which is a private, self-contained system that employs a patented revolutionary spray on process that uses a sweeping side to side airbrush motion, and MagneTan Technology, to apply uniform amounts of Mystic Tan Tanning Myst to the entire body in just seconds. The Mystic Tan System utilizes personal single use cartridges and additives that can be blended to create the perfect combination for all skin types and desired results.
- Airbrush Tanning: A Sunless Technician sprays you for desired results. This flawless airbrush technique is dedicated to customizing a sunless tan to the specific needs of our clients. After careful evaluation, technicians will vary the shade, depth and color of the tan according to your skin type and preference. Our natural based solution will provide you with a consistent year-round option to achieve your desired complexion. This option is very popular for competitive bodybuilders and pageant contestants.
Q: What should I wear for my Sunless Tan?
For the MyMyst Spray booth – Most people wear nothing. Since the room is completely private, going for an all-over treatment is completely up to you. However, if you do wear a bathing suit or underwear, please note that it may become stained. We do have disposable swimwear available.
For Airbrush Tanning – We do require at least some sort of bottom clothing as a Technician will be actually spraying you. Again, we do have disposable swimwear available.
Q: How long should I wait to shower after my session?
To give the solution enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of six to eight hours. Showering sooner will diminish the intensity of the tan. Often clients will wait till next day to achieve maximum results.
Q: How do I prepare my skin for best results?
Start with fresh, clean skin – for the best spray tan results, exfoliate and clean your skin to remove any oil, fragrances or deodorants and expose the top layer of skin. If you need to shave, do it before rather than after the spray tan since shaving does remove some dead skin (the day before is best). Some clients will even start in a UV tanning booth to open up pores to enhance results.
Q: Should I moisturize before?
The solutions are water-based and it’s best to use a water-based moisturizer before you tan. Oil-based moisturizers may prohibit the spray tan from developing to the best of its ability.
Q: How do I maintain my spray tan?
Moisturize to maintain! A spray tan usually lasts between five and seven days, but you can extend the life of your tan and ensure even fading by using moisturizer often, since DHA (the ingredient that gives your skin the color) is a natural skin drying agent.
