Why so some sunless tans become patchy when they fade? The DHA in all sunless solutions react to the amino acids in your skin and create a bronzed effect. As your skin natural sheds, the tan will start to fade. Some areas of the body will exfoliate off quicker than others, therefore some areas may start to look patchy or speckled. This has no correlation with the airbrush technician or the solution. If you notice this, you can gently exfoliate the affected areas with our exfoliating mitt or a wash cloth. This tends to be a little more noticeable when you go significantly darker than your natural skin tone.
My skin is peeling, can I get a tan? We do not suggest getting a tan if your skin is peeling due to sunburn. The tan will peel right off with the peeling skin. We suggest waiting till peeling has stopped.
