Airbrush tanning is a revolutionary way to get a natural looking sun-kissed tan without UV damage caused by the sun. It is not a dye. It is a natural sugar by product approved by the FDA. It does not protect your skin against the sun. Wear sunscreen. We suggest you shave at least ten hours before application. Wear loose clothing and no moisturizer, deodorant or lotions. Exfoliate before you come for longer lasting results. Allow eight to ten hours for your tan to completely develop before you shower.
