Frequently Asked Questions
Do you tan both men and women?
Unfortunately no. Natural Glow Spray Tanning by Rita exclusively focuses on providing exceptional mobile spray tanning services for women only.
What Do I Wear To My Airbrush Tanning Session?
Wear a dark-colored bra and underwear or a dark-colored swimsuit. Wear dark and loose-fitting clothing to minimize your spray tan rubbing off after your session.
What Is DHA? Is It Safe?
DHA is the main ingredient in the sunless tanning products I use. It is a simple, non-toxic sugar that is derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the body, DHA will respond to the amino acids on the outermost layer of the skin, changing its color to a tan tone that looks beautiful. These tones range over five different shades to ensure I can always deliver the precise color that my customer wants. It is completely safe. I also offer nasal filters for people to feel more comfortable. In addition, I have the Demistifier exhaust booth which extracts 99% of tanning overspray. This patented exhaust system removes overspray by capturing and filtering solution particles from the air.
So Is “The More DHA, The Better” A True Statement?
No! What you should look for is a good formula that goes on as light as possible but still gets the job done. You don’t want to glob a bunch of DHA on your customers any more than you’d want to use an entire bottle of shampoo to wash your hair. All the extra shampoo doesn’t make your hair any cleaner, it just creates a huge mess and wastes your money. Similarly, companies that make concentrations of 10, 15 and even 20% DHA are just setting their customers up for a tan that looks horrible, dries out their skin, and feels tacky to the touch.
How Is A Tan From DHA Different From The One I Get From Tanning Booths or The Sun?
DHA reacts with the amino acids in your skin to change the color temporarily and naturally (generally lasting about 7 to 10 days). The effect is completely safe and is temporary because the outer layer of your skin is continually replacing dead cells with new ones. Both the sun and tanning booths darken the skin by exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV); when exposed, cells known as melanocytes produce brown pigment called melanin, which darkens the skin as a natural defense against the UV radiation.
Why Do Some Tans Make People Look Like They Rolled In Orange Doritos?
Unnatural orange tones are usually the result of either too high of a concentration of DHA in the tanning formula, or over-application of a properly concentrated formula. Other companies generally only offer one color, and their formulas often contain DHA levels that are too high to deliver a natural-looking tan.
Are There Any Cosmetics Or Colorants In The Solutions?
Yes. DHA takes 8 to 12 hours to realize its full-color potential. Five of my solutions are mixed with cosmetic bronzers to give your skin a beautiful cosmetic tan while the DHA is activating. Two of my solutions are clear and therefore do not contain any cosmetic bronzer. Your skin will gradually darken over the first 8-12 hours until it reaches its full-color potential.
Why Do We Have 5 Different Tanning Solution Colors?
To make sure that I always deliver the precise color that you want. Most other companies only offer one or (maybe) two colors, so they are forced to attempt to adjust the color by applying more or less solution. This “trial and error” process often results in error (orange and/or dried out skin) more often than not.
How Long Will My Tan Last?
About 7 to 10 days. Avoid sweating after your tanning session to prevent any streaking and keep your skin moisturized to extend the length of your tan!
How Long Will My Airbrush Tanning Session Take?
About 15 minutes.
Can I Tan If I’m Pregnant?
There are no known side effects from the application of my tanning products. As a precaution, if you are pregnant, you should always consult with your physician or other qualified health care provider before receiving a spray tan or any beauty or skin care application.
I Read Something About Your Equipment Makes A Difference – What Does That Mean?
My equipment has been created using medical-grade air compression technology that delivers a much finer mist that can be more precisely applied than other equipment. This allows me to deliver more realistic looking tans, waste less solution, and leave my customers feeling more comfortable.
