When summer comes, it’s time to ditch the long sleeves and get ready for the sun. Unfortunately, some individuals don’t tan as effectively as others. If you’re seeking the ultimate bronze for your summer skin, the Norvell airbrush tan could be just what you need. This widely loved sunless tan solution has helped countless people achieve that golden glow. Here at Shenandoah Women’s Healthcare, we invite you to learn what this product may be able to do for you.
What is the Norvell Airbrush Tan?
The Norvell airbrush tan is a formulated solution that, when sprayed on your skin, provides a golden glow. Its primary ingredient is DHA (dihydroxyacetone), a simple carbohydrate. The action of this component involves a reaction with skin proteins that produces brown compounds on the upper layer of the skin, much like when the inside of an apple is exposed to open air.
How Should I Prepare?
For best results, we recommend you not use bar soaps before you apply the tan solution. Any shaving or waxing should be done 24 hours prior to application.
What Can I Expect?
The color development from a professional Norvell airbrush tan dries in eight to twelve minutes, takes anywhere from two to four hours to develop, and lasts from five to seven days. The intensity of color hinges on the DHA concentration as well as each tanner’s unique skin characteristics. The longevity of the tan depends on the skin’s natural exfoliation and an individual’s skin care regimen. The faster the skin turns over, the faster the tan fades; it is key to moisturize the skin both inside and out to delay the skin’s exfoliation process.
We advise you not to tan more than three times in a two-week period to avoid buildup that may contribute to uneven wearoff. Certain areas, such as around the waist, the underarms, and the backs of the knees, may cause uneven wear and premature exfoliation due to daily activities and clothing friction. Wearing loose-fitting items and avoiding physical exertion after your tan can help reduce the chance of these, as can avoiding bodies of water for the first 48 hours after your tan.
