Why Should I use Sunless Solution instead of a tanning bed or laying out in the Sun?
Airbrush Spray Tanning is quickly becoming the tanning method of choice because it is so safe, natural looking, fast & easy! Many clients choose this service because they are unable and/or unwilling to spend countless hours in the sun or tanning beds, fear skin damage or are just looking for a healthier alternative for that golden glow NOT orange or streaky! Tanning Beds as Deadly as Arsenic The World Health Organization's cancer division has now listed tanning beds and other sources of ultraviolet radiation as definitive cancer-causers, classifying them in the top cancer risk category, deeming them as deadly as arsenic and mustard gas. A new analysis of about 20 studies concludes the risk of skin cancer jumps by 75% when people start using tanning beds before age 30. Nearly 69,000 U.S. cases of melanoma were diagnosed last year.
The American Cancer Society advises people to try bronzing or self-tanning creams instead of tanning beds.
What is DHA?
DHA(DiHydroxyAcetone) is a colorless derivative of vegetable sugar that has been FDA approved for over 30 years. DHA darkens the skin by interacting with the amino acids in the dead surface cells found in the outer most layer of the skin (stratum corneum) causing it to temporarily darken the appearance. We use only organic solutions , The natural ingredients provide a safer base for your skin. In this time when we are all becoming more health conscious, it is amazing to realize that we go back to the basics and ancient times where we can mix some of Nature's assets in the form of plants, extracting their juices, oils and fragrances creates a delightful combination which is natural and more safer for your skin.
What Should I do to prepare for my session?
It is best to lightly exfoliate your skin and shave/wax prior to the appointment. . This promotes even coverage and lengthens the duration of your tan by removing dead skin that would otherwise flake off.
Do not wear makeup, moisturizer, deodorant, lotions, etc. which can act as a barrier to the spray and stops the process from working properly. Before your tan:
Wax, shave, and exfoliate 24 hours before your airbrush session.
Please schedule your manicure, pedicure, facial, waxing and hair appointments a day before your session.
We recommend you wear loose, dark clothing and open toed sandals.
Do not use lotions, depilatories, or moisturizing shave creams prior to your session.
Do not wear deodorant, makeup, or perfume to your session.
How Long Does it last?
The tan lasts between 7-10 days, but it really depends on your skin type and how well you moisturize after. However,this can be extended by using a tan extender containing DHA, which will prolong the tan. Tan extenders are available for purchase!
What Happens During a Session? First, we come to you in the convenience of your own home. We will then consult with you on what type of result you are looking to achieve. You will enter our tanning tent and disrobe. Application will begin and it will take around 10-15 minutes. After the tan dries you may place your clothes back on. The whole process takes about 20 minutes per person. What to wear Women are free to wear a bathing suit or birthday suit. It's up to you. Men are required to wear shorts, boxers or a bathing suit.
What should I do after my spray tan? Wait at least 8 hours before showering or rinsing your body after your tan is applied. At your first shower after tanning, expect about 25% - 40% of the tan to wash off. This is normal and helps blend in any dark areas. We recommend you wear dark, loose clothing immediately following your tanning session, until your first shower. And keep a towel handy around the house and in the car, since the bronzer (temporary coloring) may rub off.
The Tan Will develop fully within 24 hours of your first rinse off/shower. Make sure to moisturize your skin after every shower and, if you're going outside in the sun, apply sun block as you normally would to protect your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. Keep your skin healthy and your tan will look better and last longer.
What Does the name Water2Moon mean? I get this a lot, It's based on Astrology. I've always been an avid Astrology enthusiast and have used the name Water2Moon, which is the Sign of Cancer's Ruling Planet and Element of water, for about 17 years now, first with my emails and then just about everything else online. I Would love to one day create my own line of Water2Moon Organic Products , but for now, one thing at a time :-)
What is your policy? We are not responsible for tans that are streaked if directions were not followed, mainly this means..absolutely NO Coming in contact with water for at least 6-8 hours. Once a tan is streaked it's very difficult to fix. Sometimes bad tans happen to good people. There can be many factors, such as skin conditions, excessive sweating etc. If something goes wrong with your tan, within the FIRST TWO DAYS we can try to fix it. We also suggest you do not spray tan if you have had a sunburn within two months, sunburned skin is damaged skin and does not take the solution well. If you have sunburn and are peeling it's also best not to spray.Any Cancellations Must be made within 24 hours or there will be a %50 percent service charge.
Meet the Owner and Founder of Water2Moon Organic Mobile Tanning
Hi, I'm Amanda, I founded Water2Moon Organic Mobile Spray Tanning in early 2011. After toying with the idea for almost two years I finally decided to pursue my dream of entrepreneurship after experiencing a bad case of sun poisoning from a mere 11 minutes in a tanning bed. I feel passionate about teaching people the benefits of sunless tanning as the safe alternative to indoor tanning. With the incidence of skin cancer continually on the rise it was necessary to offer a healthy alternative. I'm a certified sunless technician and continue to broaden my education in the sunless industry to insure my clients are receiving the latest advances and technology available. The products I use are derived from natural and organic ingredients, paraben free and produce an even bronze, sun-kissed glow without any preservatives or other harsh chemicals which can irritate the skin. By operating my own business, I am personally invested in each and every client. I truly care about the result of every spray tan I perform, and I am always striving to achieve the most natural looking tan possible. I am committed to saving and changing lives one spray tan at a time. I am passionate about educating all generations, especially our youth that it is possible to achieve that beautiful bronze tan without damaging your skin!
