FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY AIRBRUSH TAN?
Shower & exfoliate before your airbrush. Make sure you don’t have any lotion, deodorant, perfume, make up or oil on your skin. Wear loose, dark clothing and keep in mind you won’t be able to swim, shower or exercise for at least 6 hours after.
It is best to shave 24 hours before your airbrush tan. If you can’t manage to do so 24 hours before: Immediately after shaving, douse legs with cold water and apply ice cubes to them. This will help close the pores, which can hold excess solution (causing “ink dots”) if they are not closed before your tan.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR WHILE GETTING AIRBRUSHED?
Women may bring in their own bathing suit or undergarments to wear or have the option of going nude. We also provide disposable thongs & bandeau bras. Men are required to wear some form of swimsuit or undergarments.
WHEN WILL I START TO SEE COLOR?
There is an instant bronzer in the solution so you will see some color right away. The bronzer will wash off with your first shower & your full color will develop 6-24 hours after your Airbrush.
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
When taken care of properly your Original tan will last 7-10 days, while your Express tan will last 4-7 days. The most important thing is to keep your skin moisturized with a water-based lotion. We recommend using our Tan Extender to keep your color the darkest and lasting it’s longest.
WILL I LOOK ORANGE?
You will definitely not look orange! Lucky Bumble specializes in natural looking tans. Skin looking orange is a result of applying too much DHA, the active ingredient in most self-tanning products. We will determine just the right amount of color to apply for your skin type.
DO I STILL NEED TO USE SPF WHEN I GO IN THE SUN?
Yes! Your airbrush tan does NOT have any sun protection. Avoid sunscreen with oil.
CAN PREGNANT WOMEN AIRBRUSH?
We have airbrushed many pregnant women, but we always recommend you check with your own doctor first. Our solution is all organic, vegan & PETA approved.
CAN I STILL GET TAN AFTER I AIRBRUSH?
Absolutely! Just remember, even though you have color, it’s not a base tan - so use sunscreen if needed.
I HAVE REALLY SENSITIVE SKIN, SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT HAVING A REACTION?
Our solution is very gentle, & we have never come across anyone that has had a reaction. If you are concerned, you can always come in to test it out on a small patch of your skin.
