Are you new to spray tanning and unsure where to start? Are you afraid of looking orange or some other unnatural shade after your spray tan? Do you have very fair or pinkish skin and just don’t think spray tanning is right for you?

Keep reading. This educational article provides information about the Aviva Labs airbrush system, what makes it different from other systems, and why, here at Tamra Hollowell, we think it is the best option for anyone who wants to start the summer off with a little glow.

Not all tans are the same

Some systems include alcohol and other unhealthy ingredients in their tanning formulas. Some stain clothes, or anything you sit on shortly after your session. Some contain ingredients that you can’t pronounce and probably don’t want to Google to find out what they are. Aviva’s products are all organic. You’ll recognize all of the ingredients on the label, and you can rest-assured that the only thing the color will stick to is to your skin.

Developing time and shades matter

Depending on what product is being used, developing times can vary from 30-minutes to eight-hours. There are products designed for fast, short-lasting results, and others that last for weeks. And, no matter what anyone tries to tell you, one shade does not fit all. That’s one of our favorite things about the Aviva solution. Their original collection is perfect for anyone with cool skin tones, or people with pinkish or reddish undertones to their skin. Their Gimme Brown collection is just right for warmer skin tones and olive complexions. And they even have a product that is perfect for the first timer, or for the skeptic who thought they’d never get a spray tan. Their Winter Glow shade is their lightest shade and provides a natural glow with just a kiss of color.

Choose tried-and-true

The reason you aren’t going to find a better spray tan anywhere in the Newport News area is because our Aviva products simply can’t be beat. Here’s why:
