Trying Out the New Airbrush Tanning System

artesian tan blog 2 3-24-14My aunt will have her new airbrush tanning salon up and running in April, which is just in time for customers to start rolling in to start up their spring tanning. Her storefront location looks awesome now, except for several boxes that are still scattered around the store waiting to be unpacked. She has just one more week before she opens.

Yesterday, she invited me over to try out the new airbrush tanning system that she bought. Her old one was fine for when she was just doing spray tans on friends in her basement, but this one is much better quality. The tanning system makes the tanning solution go on really evenly. I was very impressed by how my tan turned out.

Buying Airbrush Tanning Systems

artesian tan blog 2 1-06-14Whether you own a business interested in adding airbrush tanning or are someone who wants to do their own at home spray tan, one of the first steps will be choosing an airbrush tanning system. Spray tans are far better for you than tanning booths and the systems are a lot cheaper to maintain, purchase, and continue using for several years.

Airbrush tanning systems do not usually cost more than a few hundred dollars. They pay for themselves quickly if you get customers to use them at your business. At home, these systems can save you a lot of money that you might spend on tanning at a gym or a spray tanning business. You can just use water to clean the machine, which will lower maintenance costs.

The Benefits of Airbrush Tanning

artesian tan blog 12-23-13When I first heard about artificial tanning, I have to admit that I was skeptical. It seemed weird to actually paint your skin to be a certain color. I didn’t understand why someone would want to. Eventually, I learned about the effects that real sun or tanning booth exposure can have on your skin. In addition to possibly causing cancer, sun exposure can make your skin age more quickly.

While airbrush tanning may not be as nice as laying in the sun on a summer day, it can give you the same tan look without the negative affects. This means that you won’t have to worry about cancer or wrinkles. It also eliminates those weird tan lines. I say if you’re going to tan, you should at least do so in the safest way possible.

The Best Airbrush Tanning Systems

Artesian tan blog 1 12-16-13Spray tanning has become a better option since the discovery that tanning in the sun or a tanning booth can lead to skin cancer. This option is better, because it can actually make your skin healthier and it manages to cover your entire body without leaving weird lines. You can usually go to a business that offers spray tanning or buy a system to use at home.

If you are interested in owning your own system, you can usually find airbrush tanning systems online. The best systems are not always the ones that are most expensive. Make sure to choose a system that offers the features that are most important to you. With a home tanning system, you can save money in the long run, so you shouldn’t worry too much about the initial costs.

Using Airbrush Tanning Systems from Autumn to Spring

Spray_Tanning_MALE-470x315In the summer, I tend to spend a lot of time outside whether I’m playing sports, going to the beach, going swimming, or just hanging out in the sun with my friends. I become very outdoorsy when it’s nice out, but where I live, every season other than summer tends to be cloudy and gloomy and I spend a lot more time indoors than I would when it’s nice out.

I’ve noticed that my skin tends to get really pale in any season that’s not summer. Since I spend so much time indoors during the other months, I’ve become reliant on airbrush tanning systems to make me look my best. I know that I look best when I have a tan; whether that’s a real tan or a spray tan doesn’t matter, because I’ve been told they both look good on me.

Airbrush Tanning Systems for the Claustrophobic

00002-1_LG(1)For as long as I can remember, I have had a serious case of claustrophobia. I get nervous even walking into my closet or a walk-in pantry. I’m not entirely sure where the fear stems from, but being in enclosed spaces scares me like nothing else. I become a nervous wreck whenever something like that happens and I start feeling like I can’t breathe.

This has led to some problems when it comes to tanning. Obviously, I have a pretty crippling fear of getting into a tanning bed, so that’s never been an option for me. Instead, I generally choose to use airbrush tanning systems of some variety, because I can use them without having to be in an enclosed space and terrifying myself.

Airbrush Tanning System vs. Tanning Salon

imagesMy sister and I used to go to tanning salons pretty frequently; it was a little bonding experience that we had, as we would always walk to the salon together. We weren’t tanning-obsessed or anything like that, but both of us always liked to make sure that we at least had a nice base tan or something to that effect, because we both look better that way.

Recently, I’ve found that using an airbrush tanning system is a lot more effective, a lot speedier, and a lot less expensive than using tanning beds. You get a much more natural tan than you might think. I always associated spray tans with the color orange, but that couldn’t be further from the truth, unless you go for the really cheap, low quality products.

Switching Over To Airbrush Tanning

SprayTan2I’ve finally fully made the switch over to spray tanning. I used to be the type of girl who preferred to soak up rays while I was outside, but I keep hearing horror stories about what that can ultimately do to your skin, especially once you start to get older. That was the primary reason that I decided that I needed to make a major change in my tanning choices.

These days, I only do airbrush tanning. It’s nice because you don’t have to wait for the sun to come out to be perfectly tan, not to mention you don’t have to do it all that often and you can never get a sunburn from it. On top of all this, it’s not bad for your skin at all. In fact, many of the spray tan solution I use have chemicals that are great for your skin!

Something Now

My friends tell me that I am not adventurous enough.  They say that I always do the same things and it takes a lot for me to try something new.  I don’t think that I’m this way.  I like to change things up on occasion and the reason why I stick to the same things is because those same things haven’t caused any problems for me.  My mom always says, “If it’s not broke, then don’t fix it.”

It’s usually one of my friends that suggest that I try something new.  When we go out to eat, someone else usually tries to order for me so I don’t end up eating the same thing I usually do.  I don’t mind it so much because I trust my friends’ tastes and I usually end up liking it anyway.  At the tanning salon, someone suggested that I try a new airbrush tanning solution because the one I usually use is too subtle.  I tried it and I liked the results.  I looked different in a good way.  Maybe next time I should be the one who initiates change instead of someone else.

Choosing Gyms

I’ve been meaning to join a gym for the past couple of years but I was always afraid of the commitment of paying a monthly fee.  I would only be going about once a week and it seems like a waste of money to be paying a full membership fee without being able to go every day.  I bought some free weights and some cardio machines so I can work out at home but they’re just sitting there collecting dust.  I need to see others around me trying to better themselves physically in order to properly motivate me.

This year I’m going to bite the bullet and finally join a gym.  I’ve been trying out different gyms around where I live and where I work.  They’re all the same for the most part; some are just further away than others or some have amenities that the others don’t have.  I don’t really need an Olympic-sized swimming pool or the option of a spinning class so I don’t want to pay extra for those.  One gym even had an airbrush tanning system that I will most likely never use.  I just need an old-fashioned gym with some treadmills and some weight machines and I’ll be satisfied.  My friend suggested I join a boxing gym if I wanted “old-fashioned.”  But the thought of possibly being punched in the face everyday doesn’t really interest me.
