The Mystic Tan booth is a full-body, DHA tanning process that uses MagneTan technology. This revolutionary process allows the booth to apply a uniform amount of tanning solution to all parts of the body.
When the Mystic solution passes through the booth’s nozzles, the particles of solution are polarized, taking on the characteristics of “tiny magnets.” MagneTan technology uses the body’s own magnetic properties to attract the solution to all surfaces of the skin.
When the tanning process is finished, the consumer simply steps out of the booth, towels-off any excess mist, dresses and exits. The result is a uniform, natural looking tan with a reaction time of 3 – 12 hours, and can continue to build up to 24 hours.
To achieve the perfect sunless tan you should always follow two simple steps: Exfoliate & Hydrate. Follow these two steps the day of or the night before you tan:
Exfoliate your skin in bath or shower by massaging an exfoliant gel onto the skin with a washcloth or sponge. Concentrate on rough areas such as elbows, knees and ankles, then rinse clean. This removal of dead skin cells will give you a fresh, even surface to tan, which will increase the life and evenness of your Mystic Tan.
Always hydrate your skin after exfoliation by using a moisturizing lotion. Applying lotion in between your Mystic Tan sessions will increase the life and luster of your tan. Avoid using lotion directly after your Mystic Tan session.
The tanning myst applied in the Mystic Tan tanning booth is moist and very fine. Your skin will feel hydrated and nourished. Tiny droplets remaining on your arms or legs after the session are easily removed by toweling dry. Toweling won't streak your tan, and any tanning myst that wipes onto the towel is excess and will not affect your tan. Just towel off the same way you do when you take a shower and then get dressed.
Once you've towel dried, there's little chance of any bronzer or DHA getting on your clothes. If you perspire soon after your Mystic Tan tanning session, some of the bronzer may transfer to your clothing. Since the bronzer is completely water-soluble, it will wash out.
To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after tanning. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan.
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Mystic Tan results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.
