How do the sunless tanning products work?
The active ingredient in almost all modern sunless tanning products is dihyroxyacetone (DHA). A colorless sugar, DHA interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown color.
Gone are the orange tones associated with the products of old. In addition to DHA, most products contain an immediate bronzer. The formulation of the bronzer determines the initial color of your skin after application. This is where most products miss the mark. DHA is DHA and will always produce the same results, so if you don’t like the color of your skin after the product has been applied it is because the bronzer has poor coloration. At Lori’s Wellness Loft we use the most realistic bronzer on the market. You will love your tan the moment it hits your skin. Come see for yourself.
Can the color be customized to meet individual tastes and skin tones?
At the Loft we use the best color customizable tanning system available. You can choose the color you desire from light to a dark tropical tan. At Lori’s Wellness Loft we aim satisfy the most discriminating tastes. From the business man or woman to professional bodybuilders, our Airbrush Tanning System can be tailored to meet the individual needs of our clients.
Is it safe?
Yes. Dihydroxyacetone has been FDA approved for use in the personal care industry for years. No adverse effects have been reported other than minor skin irritations on allergic people. Allergic reactions are extremely rare and can usually be eliminated by showering.
How long will my sunless tan last?
Your tan will last five to seven days or longer depending upon your ability to follow a proper daily moisturizing regiment. A sunless tan fades just like a tan from the sun. As your body naturally exfoliates itself, off with it goes your tan. Proper hydration is the key to maximum longevity.
For those of you who would like to maximize the time between visits, daily use of Bronzz Moisturizing Tan Extender, a unique blend of the finest skin conditioners and a small concentration of DHA, can extend your tan for up to two weeks keeping it smooth and even looking throughout its duration. It even helps enhance the tan received from natural sunlight or tanning beds.
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my tanning session?
Yes. The evening prior to being tanned you should exfoliate using a body brush or quality scrub. Removing any dead cells will help the sunless tanner penetrate your skin and give you the best results. Do not use moisturizers prior to being tanned as they can clog pores and prohibit proper penetration. Makeup and deodorants can also prohibit absorption but they can be removed prior to your session at the salon.
If you choose to be tanned in a bathing suit, we suggest you buy one especially for use while tanning or use an older one. During the tanning process there is always a chance that some of the mist may get on whatever you’re wearing. You should also wear loose fitting dark colored clothing as some of the bronzer can rub off on your clothes after you’ve been tanned. Natural fibers like 100% cotton sweats or Baggies are best. Any color that rubs off can be washed out during a normal wash cycle.
Why is an airbrush application better than those misting booths or applying by hand?
The airbrush is a precision instrument that allows for a smooth, flawless application. Special care can be taken to avoid over application on problem areas such as knees, elbows, hair and blemishes that tend to absorb more color.
Mist-on booths require a series of body contortions within the booth to cover each area. The operator or the consumer has no control over the product and where it ends up. A shower cap must be worn to protect the hair from discoloration. A natural look will take the tan up to the hairline. This can’t be achieved in a booth without exposing it to the mist. Covering the hairline completely results in unsightly tan lines on the forehead and neck.
Hand application often results in streaky coloration and stained hands due to the inability to properly apply the product by yourself.
The airbrush with its inherent precision and flexibility is by far the application method of choice.
How long does it take?
A typical full-body session takes about 15 minutes and an additional five to ten minutes should be allowed for drying time prior to getting dressed. Partial body services take proportionately less time
