How to get the Perfect Airbrush Tan

This blog is written by Cosmix Inc.

Airbrush tanning is extremely popular these days. While many people want to have that sun-kissed glow, not everyone is willing to harm their bodies to get it. Instead of sunbathing or going to the tanning salon, many men and women head to their local salon to get an airbrush tan. For this reason, schools for makeup artists are teaching this important art to their students.

An airbrush tan is a fast, sunless tanning solution that makes you look bronzy without damaging your skin. But getting the perfect airbrush tan is easier said than done. There are many things that can go wrong if you don’t prepare your body before walking into the booth or getting sprayed by a tanning artist. The makeup professionals at Cosmix Inc. have provided the following tips on how to get a perfect airbrush tan.

Clean up. It’s important to be clean from head to toe before getting airbrushed. Wash and exfoliate your body before tanning. This means washing off all lotions, oils, sweat, and perfume.

Remove unwanted hair. While it’s important to get rid of unwanted hair before an airbrush tan, how and when you do it is more important. Shave the night before the treatment. If you wax, make sure that you don’t get an air tan within four days of waxing.

Avoid water. After you get airbrushed, avoid getting into contact with water for at least eight to 12 hours. This means no swimming, showering, or baths. No singing in the rain. It also means no sweat, so stay away from the gym for a day.
