Hollywood Tans’ ongoing partnership with Sunless Inc. provide our salons with high-end sunless options.
Demand for sunless tanning products and services are increasing at a rapid pace and Hollywood Tans and our vendors are constantly exploring new technologies and products to meet and exceed those demands.
Sunless spray tanning is the spray/mist application of Sunless tanning solution to your body.
When applied, DHA (the active ingredient in Sunless tanning solution) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color.
Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours.
The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
Instant Tan, Powered by Mystic Tans® mists your body with premium bronzers, moisturizers and DHA (dihydroxyacetone) for a smooth, natural-looking, beautiful tan in seconds.
Your Hollywood Tans’ salon associate will work with you to decide which formulation is best for you.
The Auto Revolution by Norvell is a state-of-the-art automatic sunless spray system that produces airbrush quality results – with the comfort and speed of an automatic spray booth.
The system is intuitive in that it determines your height prior to the session tailoring its process to each individual client just like a personalized airbrush service.
With only two standing positions and voice-guided instructions combined with rich luxurious spray formulations, you can easily achieve the perfect golden glow.
Do not shave 24 hours prior to visit
Shower and exfoliate
Use a body scrub, not a bar soap
You want to remove excess dead skin cells so the product adheres evenly
Spend a little extra time exfoliating areas with thick skin, such as knees, elbows and ankles
If skin is dry, use light lotion at least 2 hours prior
Apply barrier cream to your cuticles and nail beds to ward off excess color buildup in those areas
Moisturize the palms of your hands and soles of your feet
to help offer a barrier so you get a natural looking tan
Just be sure to blend the edges and in between fingers and toes well for a natural fade line
Avoid wearing perfume or deodorant as these can lead to blotching and flaking
Wear dark, loose clothing and avoid underwire bras
Wear open shoes, like flip-flops
Avoid perspiration - don’t exercise till after your first shower
Avoid getting your skin wet, even from rain, washing dishes or giving kids a bath
Wait at least 4-6 hours before you shower, and then apply shower gel only with your hands, not a loofah, towel or sponge
For best results, use a shower gel specifically for sunless tanning.
After your first shower, moisturize 2-3 times a day! Hydrated skin will maintain a glowing tan
