Spray Tan Gone Mobile

Mobile spray tanning is becoming more and more popular!  People love the idea of being able to get their gorgeous sunless tan in the privacy of their own home.  If you're planning on taking your spray tan business mobile there is one piece of spray tanning equipment that you will definitely need.  A pop up spray tanning tent. 

A pop up spray tanning tent is a great way to create an instant space for spray tanning in any location!  It folds down to a compact size so that it's portable and super easy to lug around.  You never have to worry about leaving behind over spray or having a mess to clean up before you leave your clients home!  All the over spray gets trapped inside the walls of your tent.  All you have to do is wipe it down with a damp rag, or even take it outside and hose your pop up tent off!

Spray Tan Solution Storage

They way you store your spray tanning solution can really make a difference in it's shelf life! Heat kills DHA which is the ingredient that makes your spray tanning solutions work.  You always want to keep your sunless tanning solution below 73 degrees.

Some people like to store their spray tanning solution in the refrigerator. This is okay as long as it's not an emulsified solution like Kahuna Melange.  If you store an emulsified solution in the fridge it will cause it to get too thick and it will not work.  I like to keep my sunless tanning solutions in the hall closet.  It's cool, dark, and dry.  Store your spray tanning solutions carefully and you'll get a 6 month shelf life!

Spray Tan Worry Relief

Much debate has been going on when it concerns spray tanning safety.  Many people were canceling appointments because of the scare that inhalation of DHA could be linked to cancer. DHA is the ingredient in most spray tanning solutions and sunless tanning products that causes the tan appearance of the skin. Good news for all you sunless tanning enthusiasts, latest research says spray tanning is safe, and DHA will not cause cancer!

Without a doubt, spray tanning is safer than UV tanning. The Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Perfumery Association (CTPA) actually issued a statement on the safety of spray tans. You can read more about what the CTPA has to say in this article.  It's awesome to hear good news about the sunless tanning industry! If you are still worried, remember there are great sunless tanning safety wear available that you can use before applying your sunless tanning products

Sunless Tanning Over Spray Reduction Booths

If you are a salon or spa that does spray tanning, you should consider adding an over spray reduction booth!  A sunless tanning over spray reduction booth will reduce the amount of over spray you breathe during spray tanning.  Many also have lighting that will help reduce shadowing on your clients, giving you the optimal spray tanning space.

Sunless tanning over spray reduction booths have fans that work to pull over sprayed solution out of the air.  The spray tanning solution gets trapped in the filters in the fan, instead of in your nostrils and lungs.  A sunless tanning over spray reduction booth can also help to keep your spray tanning space clean as less solution will be over sprayed onto your walls. An over spray reduction booth is a great piece of sunless tanning equipment that will not only add practicality, but also add an aspect of professionalism to your sunless tanning business.

Using Barrier Cream

Using barrier cream is a great way to ensure you do not get any spray tanning solution on areas where you don't want to develop tan.  Sunless tanning solutions react with the top layer of your skin, creating the tanned glow we've all come to love.  There are just certain areas like the finger nails and palms of the hands where we wouldn't naturally tan, and in order to keep our sunless tan natural looking, we should avoid spraying these areas!

Barrier cream literally creates a barrier between the spray tanning solution and your skin.  This causes the sunless tan to not take in these areas! All you have to do is apply a layer of barrier cream to the finger nails, toe nails, palms of the hands, or anywhere you do not want the tan to develop.  After you are done spraying wipe the barrier cream off with a damp cloth.  It also works great on any dry patches you might have.  Spray tanning solution tends to over absorb in dry skin, and if you put a thin layer on barrier cream in those dry areas, the solution will absorb as it should!
