Frequently Asked Questions about Mystic Tan

Are there ways to enhance the Mystic Tan Results?

To achieve the perfect sunless tan you should always follow two simple steps: Exfoliate and Hydrate. Follow these two steps the day of or the night before you tan:

Before You Mystic

Step 1. Exfoliate your skin in the shower by massaging an exfoliant gel onto the skin with a washcloth or sponge. Concentrate on rough areas such as elbows, knees and ankles, then rinse clean. This removal of dead skin cells will give you a fresh, even surface to tan, which will increase the life and evenness of your Mystic Tan. For Better Results Try Exfoliating Body Wash by Mystic Tan.

Step 2. Always hydrate your skin after exfoliation by using a moisturizing lotion by Mystic Tan ( A Non Oil Based Lotion) Applying lotion in between your Mystic Tan sessions will increase the life and luster of your tan. Avoid using lotion directly after your Mystic Tan session.

Specially formulated Mystic Tan products work in conjunction with the Mystic Tan process and are available in our Salons Try the After Tan Moisturizer for an even longer-lasting tan, Also Available is the Trio Pack which Consists of an Exfoliant, An After tan Moisturizer and Perfection- a Touch Up Spray for any Missed Areas.

The Tanning Process

What should I wear in the Mystic Tan Booth?

Most people wear nothing. However, if you’d be more comfortable wearing a bathing suit or underwear, be aware that the Tanning Mist may stain it. The Bronzer we use in our Solution is water-soluble and should wash out.

What happens if the Mystic Tan Mist gets in my eyes?

Mystic Tan Tanning Mist has been thoroughly tested by a third-party lab, and the results showed no eye or skin irritation. Mystic Tan Tanning Mist has been used in over 15 million tanning sessions with no adverse reactions. However We Do Recommend a Clear Pair of Goggles (Available at Our Salons) to Avoid any Contact with the eyes.

What happens if I inhale any of the Mystic Tan Tanning Myst?

While no one should purposely inhale or ingest the Mystic Tan Myst, it is known that DHA (the active tanning ingredient) is a non-hazardous compound that causes no adverse reaction in moderate quantities when applied topically or even ingested. DHA has been used as a diet supplement in sports nutrition and is non-carcinogenic.

Testing has further shown that DHA is less toxic than aspirin, caffeine and even common table salt. Based on our research, the maximum amount of DHA that could accidentally be ingested or breathed during a one minute Mystic Tan sunless tanning session would be .05 milligrams (equivalent to less than one grain of common table salt).

Ingesting this minimal amount of DHA should pose no health risk to the consumer. However we recommend Using a Mouth Guard (Available at Our salons) and Breath Thru your Mouth during the Mystic Session.

Should I cover my hair while tanning in the Mystic Tan tanning booth?

Many customers wear a disposable shower cap, provided by the salon, to keep Tanning Mist from getting into their hair. Other customers tan without covering their hair. The Mystic Tan Tanning Mist does not penetrate the hair follicle. The Bronzer we use in our Solution is water-soluble and will easily wash out.

Are there any optional precautions I can use with the Mystic Tan booth?

When applying DHA sunless products in a spray or mist, it may be difficult to avoid exposure to eyes and lips or guard against accidental inhalation of the Tanning Myst. Mystic Tan, Inc. and the FDA recommend that users cover the area of the eyes with Mystic Tan eyewear, protect the lips with lip balm, and use a Mouth Guard to protect membranes in the nasal passages, as well as avoid inhaling or ingesting the product.

After You Tan

How do I towel off after my Mystic Tan session?

The Tanning Mist applied in the Mystic Tan tanning booth is moist and very fine. Your skin will feel hydrated and nourished. Tiny droplets remaining on your arms or legs after the session are easily removed by toweling dry.

Toweling won’t streak your tan, and any Tanning Mist that wipes onto the towel is excess and will not affect your tan. Just towel off the same way you do when you take a shower starting from the Feet and Working Upwards and then get dressed.

How quickly can I get dressed after a Mystic Tan tanning session?

Once you’ve towel dried, there’s little chance of any bronzer or DHA getting on your clothes. If you perspire soon after your Mystic Tan tanning session, some of the bronzer may transfer to your clothing. Since the bronzer is completely water-soluble, it will wash out.

How long should I wait after a tanning session before showering?

To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after tanning. The Longer you wait the Darker You will get up to a Maximum of 8 Hrs is Ideal. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using The Bronzer, the Instant Color of the Bronzer will wash off in the shower, but the DHA that creates your longer-lasting tan will remain.

Does Mystic Tan Tanning Mist have any smell after contact with my skin?

Some people notice a slight starchy smell on their skin a few hours after a tanning session. This is simply the DHA reacting to proteins in your skin and it fades away fairly quickly.

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.

Other Common Questions

What is the Mystic Tan booth?

The Mystic Tan™ booth is a private, self-contained unit that, in just seconds, employs a revolutionary spray process to apply a uniform amount of Tanning Myst to the entire body in just seconds.

When the tanning session is complete, the tanner simply steps out of the booth, towels off any excess Tanning Mist, dresses and exits. The result is an even, natural-looking tan.

What is MagneTan technology?

MagneTan™ technology is our patented process that uses the human body’s own magnetic properties to attract Mystic Tan Tanning Mist to every exposed surface of the skin.

When authentic Mystic Tan Tanning Myst passes through the spray nozzles in a Mystic Tan booth, the micro-particles of Tanning Myst become polarized, taking on the characteristics of “tiny magnets.” These particles adhere evenly to the skin to create an even, natural-looking tan.

Will my skin look orange?

15 million tans can’t be wrong. That’s how many successful Mystic Tans there have been in just a few years. Before Mystic Tan, most self-tanners were creams and lotions applied by hand. That meant inconsistent coverage.

Too much lotion applied in one place left the skin looking orange. Not enough lotion left unattractive streaks. Hand held spray-on applicators tend to run and also cause streaking.

Our MagneTan technology ensures that a uniform micro-spray of Mystic Tan Tanning Mist covers the entire body in the exact amount required to produce a natural-looking tan.

Still not sure?

Ask any of the 15 million people who have tried and love it, or ask your favorite celebrity.

If I tan in the Mystic Tan tanning booth, can I also tan in tanning beds and in the sun?

Yes. There is nothing in the Mystic Tan Tanning Mist that would prevent you from tanning in tanning beds or the sun. In fact, a number of customers have found that tanning with UV rays and the Mystic Tan Tanning Mist actually gives them a better overall tan.

If you plan to use a tanning bed and the Mystic Tan booth in the same day, we recommend that you use the tanning bed first. Remember, however, that the Mystic Tan tan does not give you any protection from UV rays.

I have fair skin and have never been able to tan. Will I look tan after a Mystic Tan tanning session?

A great benefit of Mystic Tan is that it is perfect for individuals who can’t or prefer not to tan conventionally.

Can I use the Mystic Tan booth if I am pregnant?

We recommend consulting with your doctor before proceeding with a Mystic Tan tanning session.

Has anyone had an allergic reaction to Mystic Tan Tanning Mist?

The components we use in our Tanning Mist have been successfully used in cosmetics and food products for decades, and are proven safe for use on the skin.

If you’ve had previous allergic reactions to self-tanning lotions or cosmetics, you may want to do a “patch test” first. Put a small amount of Mystic Tan Tanning Mist on a small area of your skin to test for possible reactions.

What's in Mystic Tan Tanning Mist?

All Mystic Tan tanning mists contain the following natural ingredients:

DHA – This is what produces a long-term tan. The use of DHA has been FDA-approved for decades as an external tanning agent. When applied, DHA reacts with 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. To maintain optimal color, you’ll want to tan every four to five days.

Moisturizers – These help carry the DHA deeper into the skin and promote a softer, smoother finish. Mystic Tan Tanning Mist contains 65 percent Aloe Vera, a natural moisturizer that helps skin draw moisture to the surface. Aloe Vera also softens the skin and helps smooth wrinkles.

What is the difference between of all the Tanning Mists?

Mystic Tan is designed for customization according to your preferences and tanning needs. That’s why we’ve created multiple formulas, so you can select the one that fits you best.

Mystic Tan’s BronzMyst™ formula contains Insta-Color Bronzer™, a water-soluble, brown-tinted dye that produces an instant tan. The bronzer washes off in the shower or bath, without affecting your overall tan.

Mystic Tan’s ClearMyst™ formula contains no bronzer at all, so it goes on clear, yet, darkens within hours and results in an even, dark, natural-looking tan.

Premium with NutraMist™ Plus, in BronzMyst™ and ClearMyst™ formulas, hydrate skin and balance your moisture level for a deep, dark sunless tan, with minimal tanning odor.

How many Mystic Tan tanning sessions will I need to achieve the color I want?

You’ll be tan after one session, but it may take additional sessions to achieve your desired color. Once you reach your ideal color, you should be able to maintain it by tanning once every four to seven days.
