Which is better - an airbrush spray tan or a booth? Airbrush tanning uses a HPLV (high pressure, low volume) spray gun to evenly distribute a bronzing solution over your body as opposed to spray tan booth which just sprays the front and the back of the client, often unevenly. Airbrush tanning also means that a custom colour can be created for you, based on the look you are wanting to achieve.
What can I expect from my airbrush spray tan? You decide the colour you are hoping to achieve from light, medium to dark. After removing your clothes you will stand inside a free-standing tent with your arms out to your side. First, you will be sprayed over your entire body with a pH Balancing Spray (our skin is naturally around 4.5-5.5 pH, but our ideal pH to absorb DHA - the tanning component of the solution - is actually 5-6 pH. The pH balancing spray will improve your tan life by up to 25%, remove oils and makeup, and improves moisture retention). After the pH balancing spray, you will receive 1-2 coats of the bronzing spray.
What will I wear for the airbrush spray tan? You can wear as much or as little as you like - but understand that the more clothes you are wearing, the less skin is exposed for tanning. Most people choose to wear only bottoms, but ultimately it's whatever you are comfortable with. Disposable underwear is provided, or you can wear a bathing suit but the tanning solution may stain it, so make sure it's not your favourite! Most people have a old bathing suit that they use only for their spray tan.
Airbrush spray tans at Kelowna Esthetics Studio are $20 for a full-body tan, or $10 for just the upper body or legs!
