Spray Tanning African American Skin

In the past three days, I have two beautiful African American women (one a model, the other an actress) ask if the spray tanning will help them cover their flaws. One has discoloration on her back from acne scarring and the other stretch marks from her recent pregnancy.

I know that there is a major lack of pigment with scar tissue, so... would this work on "ebony" skin?

I suggested airbrush makeup as a temp. fix for a "shoot," and told them that I would get back with them asap. I would LOVE to pick these girls up as clients... can anyone assist.

I currently use, Norvell, I am sampling Avia and Jamaica-Me-Tan. I have on order Brown Sugar and St. Tropez. Please help!!!

Spray tanning people of color works wonderful. It will work the same on the the scar tissue no matter thier skin color.

Yes.
We have several who are monthly Mystic members and come in weekly.
Others also tan once a week to even out their skin if ashy.

Re: Spray Tanning African American Skin

I use Norvell Products..what darkness level of solution should I use - dark or cocoa? I have never tried the cocoa solution from Norvell. For those who have tanned women with darker skin, does it really minimize the look of stretch marks well?

Re: Spray Tanning African American Skin

I am a dark skinned female & i have eczema & i have gotten it to go away finally & now i have extreme dark spots on my legs,back,arms & stomach...so I was thinking about getting a spray tan but is is possible for me to get a tan look flawless & finally feel beautiful & be able to go outside without hiding my legs? P.S My color is like Kelly Rowland in this picture http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=...w=1024&bih=578
