The Cadillac of the spray tan systems. If you've watched ABC's Dancing with the Stars, then you've already seen the amazing Fantasy Tan results! As a matter of fact, entertainers around the globe turn to Fantasy Tan for the rich, perfect-looking, safe tan.
Fantasy Tan is a custom hand air-brushed tan for the most realistic looking sunless tan. Experienced technicians will use various shades to contour and define your body. Because no two bodies are alike, the formula comes in five colors to compliment any skin tone.
This product provides superior results without streaking and lasts longer than other brands. Fantasy Tan lasts for seven to ten days. The beauty of Fantasy Tan is that you can have that sun bathed look without ever exposing yourself to the carcinogenic UVB rays of the sun or tanning beds.
How does Fantasy Tan work?
Fantasy Tan's specially-made airbrush atomizes the Fantasy Tan formula into cooling vapor that assures an even application. The active ingredient in their formulas, Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), responds with the amino acids on the very outermost top layer of the skin to produce a tan color, similar to what the sun does, but without damage to the skin.
Fantasy Tan® eliminates all of the mess and problems associated with tanning creams and spray tanning booths. There is no streaky mess, orange palms, or dirty looking knees and elbows. This is a personal treatment tailored to your individual needs. No two people are alike, and your spray tan should suit you and your skin type - so Fantasy Tan comes in 5 gorgeous colors - SunSpray (light), BoTanical (medium), Celebrity Glow (medium-dark), Chocolate (dark),SunSet Bliss (extra dark).
How long does it last?
With absolutely no sun exposure at all, the tans can last between 7-10 days. The way the tan fades is dependent on the way each person naturally exfoliates his or her skin. The longer and more regularly you tan, the better the tanning effect will wear.
Its going to last the longest if you properly exfoliate before your tanning. There are also post-tan self tanning creams and mousses that will prolong the bronze.
Pre-Tan PreparationFor the healthiest tan, start with the healthiest skin.
- Exfoliate your skin the night before. This promotes an even coverage and lengthens the duration of your tan by removing dead skin that would otherwise flake off. Do not injure the skin by overdoing it.
- Wax a minimum of 24 hours before your tanning appointment. OR Shave 8 hours before or after post tanning shower. Use a sharp, clean razor, with a lubricating product (such as hair conditioner, which should be rinsed off.)
- Remove or avoid wearing make-up and moisturizer asthis acts as a barrier to the spray and stops the process from working properly.
- Wear dark, loose fitting clothing and undergarments to your tanning appointment. The cosmetic bronzer may rub off on clothing. It will wash out of most fabrics, but may stain nylons, lycra, and silks. For the spray tanning itself, women often wear a bikini or underwear, usually with no top, but its up to you. Whatever makes you most comfortable and gets you the sexy tan line you desire. For men, shorts or boxers.
- Bring an umbrella and plan to stay indoors if there is any chance of rain.
Maintaining Your Fantasy TanFor the most beautiful, longest lasting tan - develop a healthy skin regimen.
- WAIT at least 8 to 12 hours before washing.
- Apply moisturizer morning and evening after your post-tan shower. AVOID moisturizers with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) because they promote exfoliation.
- Avoid long, hot showers and baths, and scrubbing the skin. If you use a wash cloth when bathing, choose onethat is as soft as possible. Excessive friction on the skin may fade your tan prematurely.
- Chlorine in swimming pools and hot tubs can remove or shorten the longevity of your tan.
- Take care when exercising as friction and excesssweat may cause your tan to fade prematurely or unevenly.
- For best results, use Fantasy Tan's Skin Care Line when maintaining your tan. These specially formatted productswill help you develop and maintain healthy skin and a gorgeous tan.
