+ Will I Look Orange?
No. You should not look orange. ABO uses the highest quality tanning Sprays. Everyone’s skin is different and reacts to DHA differently, so we also pH balancing sprays that eliminate any chance of orange and works with your own skin pH type to enhance and lengthen your tan. Your end result should be a beautiful Healthy Glow.
+ What is DHA and how does it work?
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) DHA is a colorless chemical (it is derived from glycerin) that interacts with the amino acids in dead skin cells to produce a brown color change. Since these dead skin cells are constantly being shed, the color change produced by DHA usually lasts about five to seven days. DHA is not absorbed through the skin into the body and it has no known toxicity. DHA was first discovered by the Germans in the late 1920's when DHA spilled on the skin produced a brown color. DHA has been listed with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 1973, and has been used in cosmetic preparations for almost 30 years.
+ Is it Healthy and Safe?
+ How Long Will my Tan Last?
Since our dead skin cells are constantly being shed, the color change produced by DHA usually lasts about five to seven days. With proper pre and post care your tan should look beautiful and last longer. Although cosmetic bronzers wash away during the warm water rinse, color continues to develop over the 24 hours following application, and results last between 5 to 7 days.
+ How do I get prep for a tan?
Easy! Just follow our pre-tanning checklist
+ How do I get rid of tanning blemishes?
It is fine to exfoliate these darker areas after your warm water rinse gently with an exfoliating sponge and buffer. you can also use lemon or alcohol to help in any areas that may be a little darker.
+ What should I do to lengthen the time for my tan?
Keep skin hydrated without over scrubbing and exfoliating. Using a tan extender as well helps.
+ Can I shave right before my tan?
Yes, but it is not recommended. Shaving will diminish the essential amino acids on your skin that are needed for the DHA to bind to. Your tan may be minimized in these shaved areas. We recommend shaving AT LEAST 24 hours before your tan, or wait 24 hours after.
+ Should I wear Deodorant or Lotion?
No. Anything that is on the skin will react directly with the DHA in the product causing streaking, discoloration, or minimizing the absorption of the DHA. We recommend and will have available the X Mitt Body buff to quickly eliminate anything that may be on the skin prior to spraying. Please ask your technician at time of service.
+ Are you certified for competition spraying?
Yes. We know how important tanning is to your overall score. For your best results and your 100% satisfaction, we request to spray you long before your competition to achieve perfection.
+ If I’m a Bride, when should I tan?
Immediately! Looking your best is the most important part of your wedding and they will last forever! We recommended choosing our Clear Plus tan ahead of time to see the results and make sure you are 100% satisfied. Being gorgeous with a beautiful healthy glow on your wedding day is a must. We recommend your wedding party do the same. Ask your wedding party who is planning on getting a spray tan ahead of time to schedule a group booking. You do not want anyone standing out in your photos except for you.
