What is Body Coloring (Airbrush Tanning / Spray Tanning)?

Body coloring, also known as airbrush tanning or spray tanning, is the safest and easiest way to get glowing bronze while UV rays cause dry skins, wrinkles, blemishes, freckles, skin cancer, and other skin damages.

Spray tan liquid has an ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) in it that interacts with the chemistry of your own skin. The amino acids on the skin surface react with DHA which results in tanning without increasing melanin.

* DHA is mainly a cosmetic ingredient that is safe for the skin and has been recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration.

Unlike suntan, spray tan does not stimulate melanin pigments, so there is no need to worry about spots or freckles.
Spray tan lasts about 3 days to 1 week. Skin cell turnover rate varies individually but generally speaking, it fades out naturally in about a week after spray tanning, and the original skin color returns.
Coenzyme Q10 is blended in all quick-drying tanning liquids that have been tested and improved to create finer bronze, considering Japanese skin types and climates.
Spray tan is recommended for those who have given up getting a tan due to age spots and freckles, want to enjoy bronzed skin, prepare their skin before traveling to tropical countries, and are Hula, Tahitian, Latin, and Belly Dancers.

To keep your beautiful bronzed skin…

Body coloring (airbrush tanning / spray tanning)” is a treatment that works on the stratum corneum, the top layer of the skin, to achieve a natural bronze hue.
The coloring effect continues until it fades and peels off from the surface of the skin.

If you have healthy skin with normal skin turnover, you can maintain the effect for 3 days to 1 week for one spray tanning session, and if you get a spray tan twice in a row, you can maintain the effect for 10 days to 2 weeks. (It depends on your skin conditions).
We inform you of the precautions to keep your bronze beautiful as of appointment.

The below is the organizations that Ellena is officially sponsoring.



[The Day Before of Your Appointment]

If you’re over-exfoliating, it will make your tan break, so we recommend that you exfoliate the elbows, knees, heels, décolleté, and cleavage gently and lightly.

It’s recommended to avoid moisturizing a day before of your spray tanning appointment because if the top layer of the skin is too moisturized, it will be hard for the tanning liquid to settle in. This will result in a non-patchy, long-lasting tan.

[On The Day of Your Appointment]

Avoid using body lotions, perfumes, colognes, and deodorants.
Wear dark, loose clothing that were made from cotton. Tight clothes will rub off a tan.
The body coloring liquid will settle in about 8 hours after the treatment. In order to prevent an uneven tan, avoid using water and playing sports that make you sweat until a tan is developed. If you are coming to the appointment on a rainy day, opt for the clothing that covers your neck, cuffs, and feet so that your skin doesn’t get wet in the rain.

Refrain from bathing on the day of spray tanning to see the best results.

Bring your swimsuit if you want to get a tanning line. We also have disposable shorts available, so feel free to let us know if you want to wear them when making an appointment.

[Post Spray Tan Care]

For a long-lasting result, apply plenty of moisturizer to your skin. You can keep a tan longer if you avoid using exfoliating body lotions.

* Please note that results differ depending on how much your tan develops.
*Participants of the competitions that Ellena is officially sponsoring must take a shower the next morning.
