AIRBRUSH FAQ'S

 

How do I maintain my tan after my session?
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Use a basic lotion with low alcohol content on a daily basis. Chlorine, excessive sweating and long hot showers should be avoided when possible, as they tend to dry out your skin.

 

How long should my airbrush tan last?
The average result is 7-10 days. Factors such as skin type, activities and maintenance can cause your results to vary.

 

Is it safe?
Yes. The main ingredient in our sunless tanning product is known as Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple non toxic sugar. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane.

 

How long does an airbrush session take?
It takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes for the technician to apply it and 10 minutes to stand there and dry. The solution takes time to develop on your skin and the end results are seen after your first shower.

What should I do if I get wet?
You should avoid water and sweating for the first 12 hours. If you do get wet quickly and gently blot around the entire area that was exposed to water.

 

How is it different than the spray booths?
With bask’s pencil airbrush our solution comes out in a much finer mist than it does with the booths. This creates less overspray, meaning no streaking. Also the airbrush allows us to get every angle of your body. When we get to areas such as your wrists, knees and elbows we pull the airbrush gun further away to make your tan as even as possible.

 

When should I get an airbrush tan?
The airbrush can leave you feeling tacky afterwards and it can rub off on clothing before your first shower. It is recommended to schedule your appointment for the day before your event allowing a chance to shower.

 

How often should I get an airbrush?
You can visit bask for an airbrush tan just once for a special event or you can visit us once a week for a year-round glow.
For those of you dedicated to fitness routines and you wear the same sports bra you might see that your sweat is wearing off the airbrush faster in certain areas. If this is the case for you we recommend waiting until your tan has evenly faded before you have your next session. Gentle exfoliating should help speed up this process.

 

How does the formula work?
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is derived from raw sugar cane and interacts with the amino acids on the top layer of your skin to create a natural looking tan.
