How does Sollux Mobile Tanning work?
Once inside the portable tent, your body will be sprayed with a solution that contains a certain percentage of DHA (DiHydroxyAcetone) a colorless sugar which reacts with the amino acids on the top layer of your skin and over a period of a few hours turns a golden brown - into a natural looking tan. DHA is FDA approved, non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.
Will my skin turn orange?
Nope - You will not turn orange. This is probably the biggest myth out there. Sollux Mobile Tanning uses high quality products and customizes the solution used depending on the clients skin tone and what the client wishes the end result to look like... a lighter tan, medium, or darker looking tan. Whatever color you choose, the end result will be a golden natural looking tan.
Should I exfoliate before tanning?
Absolutely, exfoliation before your spray tanning will help your tan to last as long as possible. We do sell body washes to help with exfoliation. See Preparing for your Tan and Caring for your Tan pages on our website for suggestions on how to make your tan last longer.
Can you setup a tanning booth in any room in my home?

Will I end up with over-spray on my carpet or walls?
Nope - Our portable spray tanning booth that is set up in your home will catch all, if any, over spray that can occur. We also use an air extraction fan to capture any over spray. You will never even know we were there, except that you are left with an amazing tan of course.
Will people know I have been spray tanned?
Each appointment includes a one-on-one consultation with your tanning technician. Your technician will find exactly the right shade for your skin. If you want your tan to be so dark that everyone will notice and ask you where you've been vacationing, we can certainly do that. On the other hand, if you'd rather be more subtle, we can give you a look that is stunning without looking too dark. You will have a natural looking tan, and I'm sure you'll be thrilled with how it looks!
How long will my tan last?
About 7-10 days. How you take care of your skin can determine how long your tan will last as well as how it fades. Doing simple things like applying lotion twice a day and blotting off instead of toweling off after showers can help prolong the life of your tan. See Preparing for your tan and Caring for your tan for more suggestions on how to make your tan last longer. We will also provide you with a card for your tan card to help properly care for your tan.
