Many of us have or are addicted to tanning beds or laying out in the sun, including myself. I used to use tanning beds for 5 years when I was younger and I'm so glad I stopped. I'm glad that I discovered airbrush tanning and this is why I wanted to share this great experience with so many people in the world. That's why I started my airbrush tanning business in Los Angeles and I also teach this trade to people all over the world through my academy "Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy".
Here is a story from another person who was addicted to tanning. Hopefully she will not have any consequences down the road but many people do at the age of 40-60. I have many of those clients who are now constantly having skin issues and skin cancers and I also have several melanoma skin cancer survivors. They can no longer go out in the sun and refer to airbrush tanning now because that seems to be the safest way to tan these days. Hopefully they will never find anything negative about airbrush tanning down the road. So far so good.
I care a lot about the safety of my clients and myself and this is why I always provide protection to my clients which includes nose filters, chap sticks for the lips, winkease for the eyes and cotton for the ears. I also have a very powerful spray booth that extracts the overspray so no one has to inhale the solution. And you will see me wear a mask every time I spray tan. I practice safety every day and teach this to all my students because I want to make sure that our airbrush tanning industry will keep a good reputation of being the safest way for tanning. I don't want to risk my clients lungs nor my own lungs and getting lung cancer down the road. If you are a spray tanning technician reading this, please help by offering safety protection to your clients and wear a mask yourself. Thank you.
