Frequently Asked Questions
What is Mystic Tan Tanning Myst?
The Mystic Tan Tanning Mysts are patented self-tanning formulations designed especially for use in Mystic Tan Systems. Our sunless tanning formulations contain DHA, the FDA approved active ingredient that produces the long-term tan effect. When applied, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
How long should I wait after a session before showering?
To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after a Mystic Tan® session to shower. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using a Bronzer Additive, the Insta-Color Bronzer will wash off in the shower, but the DHA that creates your longer-lasting tan will remain.
Will swimming affect my tan?
Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Mystic Tan results, cause possible streaking, and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering, or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.
How long does a Mystic Tan last?
A Mystic Tan can last up to 10 days depending on the formulation you choose and the condition of your skin. Sunless tanning formulations contain DHA which is the FDA-approved active ingredient that produces the long-term tan effect. When applied, DHA reacts with the proteins in the skin’s outermost layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and will reach its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.
IT Works! Ultimate Body Applicators
Does the ultimate body applicator work on cellulite?
Yes, the natural active ingredients in the Ultimate Body Applicator, Chin & Facial Applicator, Neck Applicator, and Defining Gel have been proven to help minimize the appearance of cellulite, especially with continued use.
Do the results last?
The Ultimate Body Applicator helps detoxify, tighten, tone, and firm in a manner that produces lasting results. As is true with any weight loss or body contouring product, you can reverse the results you see from the Ultimate Body Applicator with poor eating habits or lack exercise.
What will it feel like when I use the applicator?
While wearing an Ultimate Body Applicator, you will experience a slight tingling, cool, soothing sensation that lets you know instantly that the applicator is working.
How often can I use the ultimate body applicator?
Applicators can be applied once every 72 hours. The ingredients continue to work for 72 hours after you have applied the applicator, so you may continue to see progressive results over this time period. Each applicator is only to be used once. Discard after use.
How long should I wear each applicator?
Since applicator is a safe and naturally-based product, it is safe to wear longer than 45 minute if desired. In fact, we’ve found that one of the easiest ways to use the applicator is to wear it all night long while you sleep. If it is your first time using the Ultimate Body Applicator, we recommend that you only leave it on for 45 minutes to test your skin’s sensitivity to the natural active ingredients with detoxify properties.
