Airbrush Self Tanning

Exploring The Facts About Airbrush Self TanningAirbrush self tanning procedures offer individuals a convenient way to achieve the glow of a natural tanwithout risking skin damage due to overexposure to the sun. Ultraviolet radiation causes premature aging of the skin. This can lead to a loss of elasticity, brown spots, wrinkles, and in extreme cases, skin cancer.

Airbrush tanning uses a device that delivers tanning solution in a fine mist to the skin. The solution is topical so skin does not absorb it. Airbrushes allow for precise application with no streaking, running, or dripping.

The active ingredient in the solution is dihydroxyacetone, also known as DHA. Unlike the process that occurs when the sun tans the skin, DHA does not increase levels of melanin in the skin. Instead, it reacts with proteins in the epidermis, or outer layer of skin, and darkens the layer of dead skin cells clinging to the surface. It stains the cells on contact even though it is colorless.

Dihydroxyacetone is non-toxic and has approval from the US Food and Drug Administration for use in consumer products. DHA is a simple carbohydrate, extracted from sugar cane and sugar beets. In addition to being used in tanners, it is sometimes used during the wine making process.

DHA does not harm skin but it does cause it to become highly sensitive to the sun during the first 24 hours after application. During this time, skin is at a much higher risk of receiving damage from the sun's dangerous rays. Users are warned to stay indoors during this period or apply sunblock before going outdoors.

Most individuals can expect a spray on tan to last up to ten days. The actual duration will depend on the individual's skin and its natural exfoliation process, the type of tanner product used, and the individual's skincare routine, especially after the session. Because the active ingredient only affects the skin's outer layer, dead cells will naturally slough off within a few days. It is important to avoid bathing with soap for several hours after application because soap can destroy the DHA before the color is fully developed.

Daily moisturizing after the session will help prolong the tan. Skin that is dry and flaky falls off faster. The color fades as the body naturally replaces dead skin cells. Anything that dries out skin will accelerate the rate of replacement. Skin dries out when exposed to agents with a pH level higher or lower than its normal level of 5.5. Bar soaps tend to have higher pH levels than liquid bath washes. Using a moisturizer, especially immediately following a shower, restores the normal pH level to skin and slows down the exfoliation process, so the dark color lasts longer.

While airbrush tanning procedures provide a natural looking sun-kissed glow to skin, the additional pigment does not offer any protection from the sun. Skin is still vulnerable to damage from exposure to ultraviolet rays. It is just as crucial to use an effective sunblock after a tanning session as it is any other time.

Here are Some Product Reviews


By J. Oliver on June 23, 2013

This product is so addicting, at first you might think that it's too much for self tanner but if you get the very dark you can make two bottles last the entire summer and fall. There is never any streaking. The dark color might scare you at first but it rubs and blends in gorgeously. It doesn't smell like a traditional self tanner, but it does have a slight 'lotion-y' smell to it hence why the four stars instead of five. However it has red and gray undertones so you never EVER go orange. My friend and I are obsessed! She has pink undertones and I have olive. It looks fabulous on the both of us!

Best I've Tried, But Not Perfect

By M. Natal on January 12, 2012


The lotion is darkly tinted so you see exactly how it's applying. Take note that if it looks uneven during this time you had better fix it or else it will end up looking just as bad once it sets. I still recommend using a bit of white lotion mixed in a drop of this stuff for your rough spots like knees and feet, or else it may end up soaking too much color as with most tanning lotions.

A note on the dark tint: the tint is there to help you apply, and serve as a visual. It also helps you look much darker. Once you take your first shower after using the product, you will appear much lighter because the tint will wash away. So don't be afraid if the water turns dark brown and you look much lighter after stepping out. Personally I like washing off the dark tint as soon as possible.

LONGEVITY:If you make sure to exfoliate properly before using, it will last a few days. To avoid looking splotchy and to make sure it comes off evenly, you have to continue exfoliating well every day. While this means it wont' last too long, at least it doesn't fade unevenly.


The main reason I stop using self tanners is because of the bad smell all tanning chemicals have. There seems to be no way around this. Sun Labs has a lovely smell when first applying, smells like cherry, but after an hour or so the perfume fades and the typical self-tanning smell arrives. It's much more subtle than any other tanner I've tried, which is a huge plus. However, it's still there. I have sensitive smell and I get very self-conscious when I smell it and usually stop using the tanner for a while. It's even worse when I go to the gym. A lot of people have had good luck with the smell, but there is a risk it won't work well for you. If this is a determining factor, I suggest trying a sample and going from there. I can only use this product every once in a while before the smell defeats me and I decide being pale for the summer is better than smelling weird.


Three stars for being one of the best options out there right now. Great application and color. Average longevity. Smell is the most subtle from what I've used, but is still there and bothers me enough to be turned off from using it after a while. If you're desperate for something that looks natural and is easy to use, give this a shot! Just beware if you're sensitive to smells.

Wow, self tanners came a long way ! This is an amazing product. I purchased the really dark and I simply love it. I live in sunny SW where we have 360 sunny days a year, I love outdoors and tan skin. This color comes out so beautiful and natural, initial smell is there for sure but fades quickly, so next day you can't smell it anymore. Your skin looks like you were in sitting by the pool for hours but it's safe and not damaging.

Very cool ! Definitely recommend it. Price is also very affordable.

You have to be very careful that you put this, as with most self tanning lotions, on very carefully. The other day I put it on and when I was out I realized that as the time passed I had streaks on my legs. It was pretty difficult to cover as I had on a skirt so I had to act as though they just weren't there.

I do like the color I get. I don't know if it will show the same on everyone, but I have olive / Mediterranean skin so it was pretty awesome. I used it on my face and I was very careful when applying. It doesn't last very long and needs to be reapplied during the week a few times. I don't always have the time for a full body cover.

I would say it's better than some and I have yet to find something that I truly love using.

I did tons of reserch on youtube and google. I found lots of good reviews on sun lab, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered the color very dark. When I first got it, I unscrewed the top and saw this dark dark brown that had a greenish tint. My first thought, before applying it, was, crap, this is NOT going to work on my skin, I have medium to fair skin, not really an olive tone at all. But I went ahead and tried it, and I AM IN LOVE! The best self tanner I've ever used!! I found out the greenish tint is what counteracts the orange within the brown, Ive never had any streaking or orangish cast to my skin while using this. Ive used it for about two months now. I love it!! The smell, is kind on like a cherry almond smell, pleasent. I cant smell the tanner smell at all. The only and I mean ONLY thing I dont care much for is it stains your hands dark if you dont use a mit, but if you dont have a mit, just wash your hands with a little toothpast and sugar when your done!!
