- Will my skin look orange after sunless tanning?
Our sunless tanning systems were specially designed to eliminate external causes of typical sunless tanning orange and yellow colorization effects. The first step in preventing unusual colorization is to choose a sunless tanning formula that is right for you. Many people assume that a sunless tanner will work regardless of the tone of their skin, especially when buying over-the-counter. But if the sunless tanner you choose is too dark for your natural skin type, you're more likely to be unsatisfied with the results. Our sunless tanning systems have several different formulas to suit a wide range of client skin types and tones. The bronzing solution comes in three different formulas and two different tints to perfectly match your skin type. Additionally, our sunless tanning bronzing formula is packed with natural ingredients to keep your skin nourished and help it absorb the solution for even more of the look and feel of a natural tan. In addition, proper use of the sunless tanning barrier cream before your session begins will ensure that the areas of your body most likely to exfoliate will receive just the right amount of coverage to avoid color changes.
Unfortunately, many people who choose the wrong shade of sunless tanner to start with will often apply it more liberally in an attempt to obtain the desired effect. This can lead to uneven coverage, streaking, and bright orange color! When used after proper moisturizing and exfoliation, our sunless tanning formulas will leave you with a beautiful golden glow that's even, smooth, and perfect every time. Ask your Sun Tan City Tanning Consultant about choosing the sunless tanning formula that's just right for you. It's a great way to Let Yourself Shine®!
- What is Anti-Aging & Skin Firming Moisturizer treatment?
Anti-Aging & Skin Firming Moisturizer treatments are an additional experience available at the end of your sunless tanning session. The treatment is formulated to nourish your skin and extend the life of your newly applied sunless tan. For an additional cost, you can complete your sunless experience with this treatment and leave your skin looking naturally tan, beautiful, and invigorated. The Anti-Aging & Skin Firming Moisturizer treatment contains three beneficial ingredients in one easy step to help finalize your sunless tanning session. First, a special moisturizer nourishes your skin from head to toe, keeping it smooth and supple, allowing the sunless tanning formula to seal more evenly from head to toe. Skin that is well moisturized is more likely to bond with the bronzing solution to help your color go deeper. Moisturize often even after your treatment to maintain a consistent, sunny glow for seven days or more!
Next, a small amount of additional bronzing formula in the Anti-Aging & Skin Firming Moisturizer treatment helps your tan last even longer. This formula contains Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved, natural derivatives and sugars that continue the sunless tanning process for up to six hours.
Finally, natural ginger root extract helps to eliminate any fragrance from the tanning solution once it is applied, and also contributes as one of the best-known anti-aging ingredients in nature. Natural antioxidants found in ginger root help your skin stay smooth, firm, flexible, and healthy throughout the sunless tanning process. The next time you visit Sun Tan City, give one of our anti-aging, skin-firming moisturizing treatments a try. Or better yet, get a sunless tan with an anti-aging treatment after a relaxing session in one of our UV tanning beds.
- If I get a sunless tan can I use a tanning bed too?
Yes! In fact, we recommend it. At Sun Tan City, we call this two-step process the "Double Dip" and it provides our clients with one of the fastest, most natural looking instant tans available. Here's how the Double Dip works: First, you'll spend a relaxing session in our Instant sun tanning bed. The Instant bed is revolutionary UV tanning technology and the very best Sun Tan City has to offer for those looking for a deep base tan in the fewest number of visits. The Instant bed features minimal UVB rays for less reddening and more of the deep bronze and gold tones. With our Instant bed, you'll be shining in no time! But the Double Dip doesn't stop once your Instant session is over.
From there, you'll step into one of our sunless booths, featuring a private, open-air design that allows your body to cool from the warmth of the Instant bed. All you need to do is relax and let the booth pamper you. The specially formulated sunless tanning solution will be applied in a light, cooling mist to soothe, nourish, and soften skin. Add an anti-aging, skin-firming moisturizing treatment to the end of your session for a naturally enriched extra step that will help your sunless tan last longer and keep your skin soft. By the time your Double Dip is over, you'll have started the process of warm, natural UV tanning while receiving instant color results from your sunless tanning treatment.
So you'll be shining bright with a sunny, even bronze tan immediately after your visit. And the results last even longer than if you'd used UV or sunless booths individually. In fact, when it's time to indulge in an anti-aging, skin-firming moisturizing treatment session again, your tan should be ready for another instant session, too. Choosing the "Double Dip" can accomplish several things: it can darken stubborn tans instantly, get you prepped for a wedding or event, or help you get the color results you want while working on a base tan. Either way, the "Double Dip" is one of Sun Tan City's most fabulous ways to shine. Ask your Sun Tan City Tanning Consultant about the Double Dip today!
