How Mystic Tan Works
Mystic Tan is a booth located in a private room. You enter the room, disrobe,
take care of some simple preparations (will be outlined later), step into
the booth, and hit START. The rest is simple! The special nozzles located
inside the booth will then spray you 15 seconds on your front side and
on your back. Immediately after the spraying stops, you would exit the
booth, remove your bouffant cap, and towel dry off with the bath towel
provided. That's it! Now just put on your clothes and go on your merry
way. About 4 hours later, get ready to be showered with compliments about
your awesome color! Your color will look totally natural and will last
for days. Many of our clients who tan in the 'normal' beds do Mystic Tan
as well - especially on the same day. It's an incredible way to get a
really dark tan for that special occasion that evening!
The MagneTan Technology
The secret behind the Mystic Tan is MagneTan Technology. MagneTan Technology
services offer a unique, revolutionary process that allows the Mystic
Tan booth to apply a uniform amount of solution to all parts of the body.
When the special Mystic Tan solution passes through the booths nozzles,
the particles of solution are polarized, taking on the characteristics
of tiny magnets. MagneTan technology then uses the body's own magnetic
properties to attract the solution particles to all exposed surfaces of
the skin. The end result is a uniform and natural-looking, golden brown
The 3 Components
The Mystic Tan solution has three components:
1: The bronzer is a water-soluble dye designed to produce an instant
tan. The brown bronzer will wash off in the shower or bath but will not
affect your overall color!
2: The DHA produces long-term color. When applied to the skin,
DHA reacts with proteins in the skins superficial layer to form a golden
brown color. It begins to darken 4 hours after application and reaches
its peak color within 24 hours. The DHA tan will begin to gradually fade
through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun. To maintain
optimal color, you should tan every 5 days.
3: The Aloe Vera helps to carry the DHA deeper into the skin and
promotes a softer, smoother finish. The Mystic Tan solution contains more
than 65% stabilized Aloe Vera liquid. Aloe Vera is a natural moisturizer
that helps the skin draw moisture to the surface. It softens the skin
and helps smooth wrinkles.
Getting the Most from your Mystic Tan
Several factors will influence and greatly improve your Mystic Tan Results:
SKIN MOISTURE LEVEL: For best results, the night before, shave legs and exfoliate
for all over even color during your Mystic session. It is essential to
apply Sunless Prep
immediately before your Mystic Tan session in order to achieve optimum
results. We also recommend Bare Body Moisturizer
after your daily shower, it has been proven
extremely effective in prolonging your Mystic Tan color. Ask one of our
tanning consultants for more details.
HAVE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS: 90% of our customers get perfect results
from their very first visit. Some will get a little nervous and forget
to follow some simple instructions. That's OK! It's a learning process
and by your 2nd or 3rd visit you'll be a pro at it. Also, most imperfections
can be eliminated by additional applications so if your results aren't
100% perfect from the first session, don't worry, just go again and they
will be. Also, keep in mind that very small imperfections are probably
noticed only by YOU as we're usually our own worst critics. Other people
will be too busy admiring your great new look!
CELEBRITY ENDORSEMENTS: Mystic Tan is proud to be the official
tanning method of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.
Mystic Tan- FAQ
1. Is it safe?
All of the components in the Mystic solution have been used in food and/or
cosmetics for several decades. If you have ever had any adverse effects
utilizing self-tanning products or moisturizers you might experience similar
effects with the Mystic solution.
2. Will it turn me orange?
When the special Mystic solution passes through the booth's nozzles, the
particles of solution are polarized taking on the characteristics of 'tiny
magnets'. MagneTan technology then uses the body's own magnetic properties
to attract the solution particles to all surfaces of the skin. When the
Mystic process is finished, the customer simply steps out of the booth,
towels-off any excess mist dresses, and exits. The result is a uniform,
natural-looking tan in less than 60 seconds.
3. What should I wear in the Mystic booth?
Many people don't wear anything. The room is completely private and if
you would like to Mystic Tan in the nude it is perfectly acceptable. However,
if you do wear a bathing suit, underwear or anything else, please be aware
that whatever you wear may be stained. The bronzer we use for your initial
color is water-soluble and should wash out of anything you wear, but the
DHA applied may cause permanent stains on any clothing you may wear inside
4. Will I be wet when I step out of the Mystic booth?
The mist applied in the Mystic booth is very fine, much like the mist
floating in the air on a foggy day. By the time you step out of the booth
most of the mist will have dried but there may still be a few moist areas.
You may see small droplets clinging to any body hair on your arms or legs.
This remaining moisture can be removed quite easily by toweling dry. Do
not worry about wiping off the solution with the towel. Toweling does
not streak the tan and any solution that comes off on the towel was excess
and will not affect your tan.
5. How long after a Mystic session before I can put my clothes back on?
Once you have towel dried there is little chance of the bronzer or DHA
getting on your clothes. I f you pursue any strenuous physical activity
after your Mystic session, perspiration may cause some of the bronzer
to transfer to your clothing. Since the bronzer is completely water-soluble
it will wash out.
6. How many times do I need to use the Mystic process to achieve the
color I want?
You will have color after one session, but it may take an additional session
or two to achieve your desired color. Once you reach the color you desire
you should be able to maintain it by tanning every five days.
7. If I use the Mystic Tan booth, can I also tan in tanning beds and in
Yes. There is nothing in the Mystic solution that would prevent you from
tanning in tanning beds or in the sun. In fact, a number of customers
have found that tanning with UV rays before the Mystic solution actually
gives them a better overall tan. Remember however, that a Mystic tan does
not give you any protection from the sun's UV rays.
8. Will my Mystic Tan be even, or will some parts of my body get darker
The Mystic booth is designed to provide as
even a color as possible. However, customers will have different heights
and shapes, and may stand in different positions. It is possible that
you will find some areas of your tan lighter than others. In most cases
this difference disappears after several Mystic sessions.
9. I have fair skin and have never been able to tan. Will the Mystic booth
give me color?
Yes. The Mystic booth was designed specifically for individuals who can't
or don't want to tan conventionally.
10. I usually break out in freckles when I try to tan. Will the Mystic
solution make my freckles come out?
No. There is nothing in the Mystic solution that will cause more freckles
to break out. In fact, most cases, freckles and blemishes will become
less pronounced because the lighter skin areas will darken and reduce
the color differentiation between the blemishes and the rest of your skin.
11. Will I get better color if I have two sessions in the same day?
Yes, spraying twice in the same day will give you a darker tan, but we
do not recommend back-to-back sessions. Mystic spraying back-to-back doesn't
give the DHA a chance to set between tans and increases the chance that
color may have an orange glow. Waiting 12 to 24 hours between sessions
will eliminate this potential problem.
12. How long do I have to wait after a Mystic session before I can shower?
We recommend that you wait four hours after a session to give the DHA
enough time to fully set. If you shower earlier, you may diminish the
intensity of the tan. When you do shower the initial tan created by the
water-soluble bronzer will wash off, but the DHA will remain and create
your long term color.
13. Will it make me feel sticky like lotions do?
No. Once you leave the Mystic booth and dry off, your skin will feel soft
and pliable because of the moisturizing components. It will not feel sticky.
14. What happens if the Mystic mist gets in my eyes?
Because of the moisturizing components in the mist, your eyes may feel
itchy or scratchy but there is nothing in the mist that will harm your
15. Do I need to cover my hair while in the Mystic booth?
Many customers wear disposable shower caps (provided by the salon) to
keep the solution from getting in their hair. Other customers Mystic Tan
without covering their hair. We have not had any cases where the solution
has changed anyone's hair color.
16. Has anyone had an allergic reaction to the chemicals used in the Mystic
No. All of the components of the Mystic solution have been used in cosmetics
and food products for decades and have proven to be safe for use on the
17. Do I need to hold my breath during the Mystic session? What happens
if I breathe in the mist? Will the mist make me sick?
We recommend that you hold your breathe during the actual misting process,
which lasts for 15 seconds per cycle. We make this recommendation because
most individuals would prefer not to breathe in the mist even though there
is nothing in it that would cause any harm if you did breathe it. If you
have a history of asthma or any other respiratory illnesses we do not
recommend that you use the Mystic booth until consulting with your physician.
18. Will the components of the Mystic solution make my skin have an unpleasant
Some customers have commented that they noticed a 'starchy' smell on their
skin after their Mystic session, but it's usually not noticeable to others
