Have horror stories about spray tans gone wrong kept you from getting a spray tan in the past? If you answered “yes,” we don’t blame you — not all tanning salons are the same, and many don’t even offer organic tanning options, like airbrush tanning. At Celebrity Skin Couture Air Tan in Chicago and Wilmette, we are proud to offer airbrush tanning services to give you that perfect bronzed look you’ve been dying for! Here are some benefits of airbrush tanning over other types of sunless tanning.

A Natural Look

Part of what sets airbrush tanning apart from other kinds of spray tans and tanning lotions is that the result looks really natural, almost as if you’ve spent the entire day at the beach! Our certified technicians have mastered the airbrush tan, and we know just how to give you the beautiful, bronzed look you’re going for. Before you step into the booth, we’ll ask about your desired result, as well as the occasion you’re getting an airbrush spray tan for. Whether you’re getting a spray tan for your wedding, graduation, or any other special event, we’ll help you decide on the perfect shade of tan for you, then apply it evenly and conservatively.


Another major benefit of airbrush tanning is that it lasts longer than most other methods of sunless tanning, typically a week or more! At our Wilmette and Chicago tanning salons, we make sure to prep clients on how to get the most out of their airbrush tan, such as thoroughly exfoliating, shaving, and showering before your spray tan appointment. We also recommend that clients don’t wear makeup, moisturizers, or deodorant on the day of their appointment, as this could prevent the color from developing evenly. As for maintaining your spray tan after your appointment, our technicians recommend waiting eight to 12 hours before showering, applying a moisturizer after showers, and avoiding exfoliation and scrubbing your skin (pat dry with a towel).

Harmless To Your Skin

In addition to looking natural and lasting a week or more with proper preparation and maintenance, airbrush tans are completely harmless. At our Chicago and Wilmette tanning salons, the main ingredient in our airbrush tanning solution is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a simple non-toxic sugar. DHA comes from plant sources, like sugar cane and sugar beets, making it a great organic tanning product. Plus, when you opt for airbrush tanning over tanning beds, tanning lotions, or other kinds of spray tans, you don’t have to worry about harmful chemicals or UV rays damaging your skin. There’s no better way to get a perfect tan, cancer-free, than by treating yourself to an organic airbrush tan!
