Airbrush tanning is a new and safe way of achieving a golden look without the risks of skin cancer often associated with overexposure from the sun or from a tanning bed. Using an airbrush, a clear liquid containing dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is applied to the body. This ingredient, which has been approved by the FDA for over 30 years for cosmetic applications, reacts with the amino acids in the outer layer of the skin.
The tan lasts approximately 5 to 10 days depending on your life style and skin type. With follow-up applications, you can maintain your tan indefinitely. The use of a moisturizer on your skin daily will help keep you and your tan looking healthy and glowing. Sunless or self-tanning lotions contain an active ingredient known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colorless sugar that darkens the skin by staining. DHA works by interacting with the dead surface cells found in the outermost layer of the skin, producing color changes. As the dead skin cells are naturally wearing off, the color gradually fades, just like a genuine sun tan. Typically within five to ten days.
Airbrush tanning is like having a nice tan without the harmful effects of the sun. At Body Enhancement we use a unique blend of 100% safe ingredients that will give your skin that beautiful “glow” immediately upon application!
