Important facts to know about your Sunless Tanning Experience

If you are getting a manicure or pedicure for an event, please make sure you do this BEFORE your spray tan appointment, to avoid your spray rubbing off.

When properly maintained, the Airbrush Tan will last between 5 to 7 days.

Please try not to touch your Airbrush Tan/Sunless Tan with the palms of your hands, prior to your first water rinse. The active ingredient may transfer color to your palms. If this should happen, gently rinse the palm of your hand with the lukewarm water to remove any undesired color.

NJ Law prohibits minors under the age of 14 from Airbrush Tanning

Anyone who has had a recent surgical procedure should speak to their physician prior to their Airbrush Session

Recommended Add on’s

  • PH Primer: Highly Recommended. A spray that is applied right before your sunless spray by our Airbrush Artist. This Primer balances out skin PH Levels on the surface of the skin giving a more golden brown color, and maximizing your sunless results.
  • Hydrates skin for even and maximum absorption of sunless solution.
  • Moisture Lock: Highly Recommended. A spray moisturizer that our Artist applies to your skin immediately after applying your color. This restores essential vitamins and nutrients back to your skin, leaving your skin feeling soft, hydrated and silky.

During your session

  • Remove clothing and all jewelry
  • Apply blending cream to hands and feet.
  • Put hair up if needed & put on hair cap
  • Your Spray technician will guide you on how to stand while getting sprayed
  • Your tan will continue to develop in 24 hours.
  • For the protection of our staff and you, we recommend that undergarments be worn during your Airbrush Tanning session. We do provide our guests with disposable undergarments to wear if you choose. If wearing your own, we do recommend something strapless.
    *NJ State Law requires that undergarments be worn during an Airbrush Session.

After your sunless Session

  1. Keep Skin Dry for 6-8 Hours: Allow the DHA to develop. Wait 6-8 hours before showering, and avoid sweating, entering any water, or applying makeup.
  2. When Showering, a simple rinse with warm or cool water is best! No shampoo or soap.You will see the exterior color come off (this is completely normal). This is just the excess color coming off.  Pat skin dry. Do not rub when drying off.
    Hydrated skin simply looks better. Flaky skin sheds and reduces the life of any tan. Hydrate daily for healthy looking skin. Moisturize Daily with Oil Free Products: Only use products and body washes that complement Sunless tans. Products with Mineral Oil and Sodium Laureth Sulfaten or Dove can significantly reduce the life of a Sunless tan. Ask our sales staff for recommendations.
    4. Avoid Pool Chemicals and Salt Water: Chlorine, Bromine, and Salt Water reduce the effectiveness and cause premature fading of a Sunless tan..
  3. Avoid over Shaving or Scrubs: Protect against exfoliation, which fades Sunless tans.

Competition Color

At Image Sun we welcome all Body Building & Bikini Competitors We realize that one of the most important things prior to stepping on stage for your event… is your TAN. Spray tanning is the finishing touch to months in the gym and the final step before going on stage. All competitors must schedule a tanning time slot at least two days prior to an event. Organization is the key to guarantee all competitors receive the tan they deserve!

Before your Session

Shower: We recommend showering before your arrival for optimal results. Avoid using Dove or any “moisturizing” soap. The ingredients will clog your pores and leave uneven patches.

Manicure and Pedicure: Due to the strength of the product, a clear coat on your fingernails and toenails prior to your first appointment is necessary.

Exfoliate: This process will remove dead cells from the skin’s surface to help in the natural renewal process. We suggest a product that is designed specifically for sunless tanning

Shaving/Waxing: Any regular waxing or shaving should be done 24 hours prior to your spray

Cosmetics: To insure color and fade, please Avoid using the following prior to your Sunless/Airbrush session:

  • Make-up
  • Perfume
  • Cologne
  • Lotions
  • Deodorant

What to Wear

Clothing: We provide our guests with disposables to wear during their Customized Airbrush. We recommend that you wear dark, loose fitting clothing or wear swim trunks that have the same coverage as the trunks that you will use for your competition. Turn clothes inside out so you do not get seam lines. Wear open toe shoes when weather permits. If it is raining, we recommend wearing long sleeves, loose pants, socks, shoes/rain gear.

NJ State Law requires that undergarments be worn during an Airbrush Session.

Important!  You cannot have any contact with water. If you want to work out, you cannot sweat profusely and must avoid cardio. The color will not take to your skin if you do any cardio. Avoid touching any area that is sprayed. Your feet may feel sticky but this is normal.
Showering – Cannot shower until right before your next appointment. Typically we recommend if the competition is on Saturday, come in Thursday night and shower Friday right before coming in with a quick cool water rinse. No soap or shampoo can be used! After showering, you can air dry or pat dry. After the last session, you cannot shower until the competition is over. You cannot use baby oil or PAM because this will make you sweat and may jeopardize your color.

We recommend that you do not use any cologne or deodorant after getting airbrushed. This will jeopardize the quality of your color.

Competitors may work out in between airbrushing sessions but only if sweating is as little as possible. Cardio is especially prohibited because you will sweat the color out of your pores
