about us

Bare Brush Tan specializes in organic airbrush tanning in the San Diego area. Derived from the same sugar found in green apples, we customize your tan to your skin tone, offering the best bronze available without an unpleasant odor, harsh chemicals, or an unsightly orange tint.

This unique solution is infused with aloe, moisturizing botanicals, and caffeine so it actually helps nurture healthy skin. Due to the moisturizing agents, your Bare Brush Tan will fade like a natural tan would, not scaly or splotchy.

Bare Brush Tan is based in Mission Beach, San Diego. Our mobile artisans can also come to you in the convenience of your own home, bring all supplies and leave no mess.

Perrin founded Bare Brush Tan in fall of 2014. As a yoga instructor, Perrin strives to live a health conscious lifestyle. She believes that tans in fact do have more fun and wanted to share a safer tan lifestyle with her friends, family and San Diego.

  • "Perrin is so amazing! I scheduled my tan a day in advance and went in yesterday. She was super friendly and helpful from the second I made the appointment and throughout the whole process."
  • "She keeps a heater on while she's spraying you which I really liked, because nobody likes to be cold and naked while being sprayed down.  The tan has a slight vanilla scent which is very pleasant!"

    Read Before You Tan

    Before Your Appointment

    We highly recommend that you shower, shave and exfoliate the day before or the day of your appointment. Oil based scrubs and soaps should be avoided. The day of your appointment it’s important to not wear any moisturiser on your skin. Please schedule waxing, manicures and pedicures before your appointment.

    After Your Appointment

    Avoid showering or sweating for 4-6 hours after your appointment. Keeping moisturised will not only extend the longevity of your tan, but your tan will also fade evenly. It’s best to avoid chlorinated pools, spas, and steam rooms.

    What To Wear

    It’s best to wear dark loose clothing, and sandals to your appointment. There is a cosmetic bronzer in the solution and it can rub off on clothing.  It washes out of most materials, but it’s better to be on the safe side.

    Tan Lines

    You are welcome to wear as much or as little as you please while you are tanning, just keep unwanted tan lines in mind. (We have disposable thongs as well)

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How Long Does It Last?

    This depends on several factors including your skin type, physical activity and aftercare. Your tan should last minimum of a week, and has the potential to last as long as two weeks. To increase the longevity of your tan, we highly recommend paraben-free moisturizer.

    Is It Custom?

    Yes, we customize the solution based on your unique skin tone, and the shade of tan you desire. We will contour and highlight your natural lines, creating a slimming effect.

    Does It Smell Bad?

    Absolutely not. Bare Tan Solution doesn’t have an unpleasant after scent. You can go back to work without being smelly.

    Will It Look Natural If I'm Fair-Skinned?

    Yes. We customize the solution to suit your skin tone. If it’s your first time tanning, we suggest selecting a lighter shade.

    Is It Orange or Streaky?

    Absolutely not. The solution is sugar-based to prevent any orange undertones.  Other solutions on the market are derived from beet or beta-carotene (carrot extracts) creating an orange undertone and a funny scent. Bare Brush Tan is pleasantly scented and will give you a golden-brown color. In addition, our airbrush technicians are highly qualified and trained to avoid any streaks or unevenness.
