About Us
Christi Nix


Christi Nix, is a connoisseur of airbrush tanning. Christi was once a sun worshiper spending countless hours by the pool trying to achieve the perfect tan, until she was diagnosed with skin cancer. She then sought an alternative to traditional tanning that would achieve the same results without the risk.

Through her experience with countless products, solutions and application techniques, Christi brings her clients tried and true solutions through cutting edge airbrush tanning options. Professional certifications include National Tanning Training Institute, American Tanning Institute, Norvell, Aviva Labs, and Sunless Inc.

Christi is a proud supporter of the Melanoma Research Foundation. the tan traveller promotes safe tanning methods and raises awareness though education of the deadly melanoma and skin cancer risk. Melanoma is rising in the 20-35 year old age group at an alarming rate. Melanoma caused by UV exposure doesn't show up until several years after the damage was done.

Christi believes that "safe sun" practices are just as important to a healthy lifestyle as daily exercise and eating a nutritious diet.

Preperation & Maintenance
Pre-Airbrush Tanning Preparation Instructions:

24 Hours Prior to your Spray Tan

Shave and exfoliate with an oil free exfoliant. Waxing, pedicures and facials should be done at least one day prior to tanning session.

Pack your "Spray Tanning Bag." Include hair tie, Chapstick, black swimsuit or underwear, dark loose fitting cotton clothing,black flip flops, an umbrella (in case of rain), and a large black towel to place over your car seat to avoid staining.

Spray Day

Shower, but avoid using any creams, lotions, gels, perfumes, deodorant or oils on the skin. These products can create a barrier, which will stop your skin from accepting the tanning agent, resulting in an uneven appearance.

Wear loose fitting dark clothing to and from your tanning session to avoid contact or staining to your clothing after your spray tan. Do not wear tight fitting jeans, pants, shorts or light synthetic fabrics to your appointment. Do not wear tight fitting shoes the day of your spray tan. Flip flops are recommended.

Your consultant will arrive 10-15 minutes early so that you can properly prepare for your appointment.


Post Airbrush Tanning Maintenance Instructions:

Avoid any activity that could cause sweating such as exercise for at least 6-8 hours. Your tan is developing during these hours and contact with water or sweat could result in lines or a splotchy tan.

Avoid rubbing your palms against your skin, as the solution will turn them a darker color.

Avoid swimming pools and hot tubs for 24 hours post spray. Exposure to chlorine before the DHA has time to develop with result in the loss of your tan.

Shower in 8-16 hours using body wash or gel. The longer you can wait to shower the better. If you must shower sooner, rinse only. Using bar soaps will strip away your sunless spray tan. Do not use any "Dove" products, bath & body wash, shampoo or lotion. We have found that Dove products in particular strip away your new tan very quickly. You will see some color wash away during your first shower. This is normal. This is the excess bronzer applied to your skin during your spray tan application. Do not be concerned about this - your developed tan is sill there.

While you are drying, remember to pat skin dry - do not rub your skin. Moisturize morning and night, and apply sunscreen after your shower.


Extending the Life of Your Tan

The life of your spray tan depends on how you care for your skin post spray.

We carry a full line of pre and post treatment products that will prolong the life of your airbrush tan. These products contain a combination of intense moisturizers and subtle bronzers that enhance your skin, giving you longer lasting results. Ask your consultant for details.

Frequently Asked Questions
IMPORTANT NOTE:

Prior to having an airbrush spray tan, DO NOT USE any type of TANNING ACCELERATORS, BRONZERS, DEODORANT, PERFUME, MAKEUP, LOTIONS, OR ANY OTHER SKIN PRODUCTS containing oil or lotion on your skin. This is very important and will affect your airbrush tan.

Questions & Answers

Question: Can I tan when I'm pregnant or nursing?

Answer: The tanning solutions we use are a food grade product, and there are no known side effects from it. As a precaution, if you are pregnant or nursing you must consult with your physician or other qualified health care provider and get written permission before receiving a spray tan or any beauty or skin care application.


Question: Is the solution (dihydroxyacetone or DHA) toxic?

Answer: The DHA solution is made from natural ingredients and therefore safe to use on all skin types. The solution also contains the natural ingredients of sugar, beets, nuts and raspberries. Some people may have an allergy to the DHA solution if they have an allergy to nuts, beets or raspberries. We also offer a Gluten Free, Paraben Free, 100% Vegan, Nut Allergy Free Formula.


Question: Will the solution turn my skin orange?

Answer: NO. The DHA works with your skin to produce a natural looking tan without orange discoloration.


Question: How should I prepare for my airbrush?

Answer: Prior to arrival you will need to shower with a citrus based liquid exfoliating soap to remove any residue or dead skin. The solution needs to be applied to fresh clean make-up free skin.


Question: What should I wear during the airbrush?

Answer: Women may wear swim suits, undergarments, thongs, or any other garment that allows me to do my job accordingly. Men must wear boxers, briefs, swim trunks or shorts. Or, tan traveller consultants will provide a variety of disposable garments suitable for tanning. The choice is completely up to you.


Question: How long does a tanning session take?

Answer: On average, a full body session can take 15 to 20 minutes.


Question: How long does the DHA solution take to dry once it's applied?

Answer: It takes 5 five to 10 ten minutes for the DHA solution to dry completely before you can get dressed.


Question: What clothing should I wear after my airbrush?

Answer: You will want to wear dark, loose clothing and flip flops or sandals so that you will not rub the solution off your skin. Tight fitting bras or tight undergarments/swimsuits are not recommended. It would be better that you not wear any when you leave.


Question: Will the solution stain my clothing?

Answer: In most instances, the DHA solution will come out of your clothing with regular wash and will not stain your clothing. However, it will stain nylon - such as workout gear- and wool. We recommend cotton clothing after an airbrush tan.


Question:How long does the solution stay on your skin before you can bathe?

Answer: It is best to leave the solution on overnight and take your shower in the morning. You can wait 6 to 12 hours, best if you wait at least 8 hours, and then take your shower. The longer you wait before bathing the longer lasting and deeper the tan. The first time you shower, rinse only. All bar soap has a high PH level and will cause your tan to fade prematurely.It is not recommended to participate in any activities that may cause you to perspire excessively before your first shower, such as strenuous exercise.


Question: How long does the tan last?

Answer: On average, the airbrush will last (7) seven to (10) ten days depending on your skin preparation prior to tanning and the amount of time you leave the DHA solution on your skin before bathing. Exfoliating and shaving will also shorten the life of your airbrush spray tan. It really depends on how you prepare and how you take care of your spray tan. Over exposure to highly chlorinated water such as swimming pools or hot tubs for extended periods of time is not recommended and may decrease the length of time your Airbrush Tanning Results will last.


Question: If this is for a wedding or any special occasion, what treatments should be done prior to having an airbrush?

Answer: Any kind of waxing, nails, manicures, pedicures, massages, or any other 'treatments' other than makeup (non-permanent) and hair styles should be done prior to shower and spray tan. None, other than hair and makeup, should be afterwards.
