The Benefits of using Airbrush Tanning
Tanning by exposing yourself to either sunlight or artificial light, increases the risk of exposing yourself to harmful ultraviolet radiation and developing skin cancer. With skin cancer diagnoses being more prevalent than all other cancers combined, more and more people are turning to self-tanners to obtain that "sun-kissed" look year round.
Airbrush tanning is a convenient and safe method of getting a tan. It gives you fast results. You get an even tan without exposing yourself to harmful rays. Imagine being able to pick up a tan within the span of a couple of hours. Yes, mobile airbrush tanning makes this possible. This method has become a favorite with health spas, users and dermatologists.
Nearly all self-tanners contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the active ingredient. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, DHA is the safest, most effective ingredient in sunless tanning. DHA is an absolutely safe and user-friendly product and has been in the industrial use for cosmetic manufacturing for more than three decades. As a colorless chemical derived from glycerin, it interacts with amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a brown color change. The resulting color change usually lasts anywhere from seven to ten days, depending upon individual skin chemistry. The nozzle of the airbrush sprays just about the right proportion of air and lotion giving your skin an even tan.
Besides DHA, other ingredients are used in airbrush tanning formulations. These ingredients are very skin friendly. They do not just give you a tan, but also nourish and rejuvenate your skin.
Best of all, one of the great things about Airbrush tanning, aside from the obvious avoidance of skin cancer, is the ability to achieve a beautiful, glowing tan all throughout the year.
When using such formulations, the only precaution that is to be taken, is to make sure that the formulation does not get into your eyes, ears, nose and mouth. It is highly recommended to wear protective gear when getting a spray on tan.
