There is nothing like a tan to make a person look fresh and healthy. This kind of tan is often difficult to achieve in the winter or for a person with light colored skin any time of the year. As a result, many turn to tanning salons or use a Self Tanning Airbrush Spray. There are many advantages to using the Self Tanning Airbrush Spray method in comparison to a salon.
Regular tanning is accomplished by exposure to strong UVA and UV rays. That is why many people suffer from sunburn, rather than tan, when exposed to the sun. Other damage can include peeling, premature aging, scaring, and even, in some cases, cancer.
People who have difficulty tanning, or live in a climate with a small amount of sun, often choose a self tanning airbrush system to achieve a desired look. This Self Tanning Airbrush Spray system is comprised of an airbrush, compressor, hose, and adaptor, which is plugged into an electrical outlet. A Self Tanning Airbrush Spray tent, which is easy to set up, will help control the direction of the spray.[I:http://www.tweetarticle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/HaywoodHunter2.jpg]
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is the product, which is used for home Self Tanning Airbrush Spray. It has no color and consists of a 3-carbon sugar. Colorless, it tans by producing a chemical reaction with the skin’s cells. It is the only FDA approved product for sunless Self Tanning Airbrush Spray. The 8.5% Self Tanning Airbrush Spray solution is best for a dark or medium tan on people with fair skin. A 12.3% Self Tanning Airbrush Spray solution, both medium and dark, is best for people with darker skin.
DHA will tan the top layer of the epidermis, which is constantly being discarded by the body. This skin layer will be completely replaced about every 35-45 days, and will require a new application of the Self Tanning Airbrush Spray solution approximately every three days. There is also a ‘Body Tanning Extender Lotion’ that can be applied between sprays and extends the tan up to one or two weeks. With the simple method of DHA application, it is not difficult to keep the body looking healthy and fully tanned.
There are different shades of Self Tanning Airbrush Spray available, depending on the amount of DHA in the solution. For example, to get a natural looking deep tan you would choose the type with the highest amount of DHA. There are also other grades, which produce rich golden bronze or a natural tan look.
There are also different contents in various Self Tanning Airbrush Spray solutions. They may contain such things as a moisturizing formula, Vitamin C and Aloe, a firming mixture, or other ingredients. It is always important to know what the formula contains in order to obtain the best results.
The advantage of using a Self Tanning Airbrush Spray is that it not only makes tanning the body easier but is simple to maintain as well. This eliminates the need to have expensive visits to a regular tanning salon. In addition, there is the advantage of using the product in the comfort of one’s home.
