Do your own airbrush tan with the best results.

Dinair has developed AIRTAN™ a streak-free, natural-looking golden tan that looks like a real tan and fades like a real tan without exposing yourself to hours of damaging UV rays which can cause burning, premature aging and even skin cancer. AIRTAN™ applies easily and evenly, absorbs quickly and dries in less than 5 minutes. You see the temporary tan color appear as you spray. It will not rub off on clothes or bed sheets. The final effect will last up to ten days as the skin slowly exfoliates off the dead skin tissue. The Dinair AIRTAN™ is a “feel good” product that allows you to wear what you want, when you want! Dinair AIRTAN™ WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT BEAUTY all year round! sunlessairbrushtanningkit

Miracle oil from the south pacific

Tamanu oil is taking the US by storm. It relieves puffy eyes and gives new luster to the skin.  Its environmentally sound and and cost much less than other products that just claim to promote new skin growth.  Most importantly it really does work!

What It Does

Tamanu oil contains three types of fats–neutral lipids, glycolipids, and phospholipids–that keep skin well nourished and supple. It also contains calophyllic acid, another fatty acid unique to tamanu oil. Research shows that calophyllic acid exerts potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory actions, and is so powerful it can inhibit Staphylococcus aureus, the bacteria that contributes to acne.

Easily absorbed into the skin, tamanu oil encourages the formation of new skin tissue, which makes it ideal for healing wounds and soothing psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, and dry skin. Tamanu oil can also improve the appearance of scars. In one study of six people with old scars, those who applied tamanu oil to their scars for nine weeks noticed marked improvement.

Promoting Sustainability
The collection Tamanu fruits helps to keep Pacific island coastal areas pristine. The preparation of Tamanu provides income for native people and helps them to maintain an agricultural society.  Tamanu is a beneficial oil of unsurpassed quality, and contributes directly to environmental and cultural sustainability.

How to create your own chignon

Things You’ll Need:

  • Hair Pins, Headband, Hair Sticks
  • Hairbrush
  • Hair Spray, Hair Mousse
  • Anti-frizz Hair Serum
  1. Step 1

    Begin with clean, dry, tangle-free hair. You may opt to blow curly or wavy hair straight for a smoother look. Work a little mousse through your hair and tame any flyaway hair with a drop of anti-frizz serum before starting your chignon.

  2. Step 2

    Brush your hair back into a low ponytail. Shorter side layers can be pinned back with jeweled hair pins or a head band. Get a firm grip around the base of the ponytail and use your other hand to twist the tail into a tight spiral.

  3. Step 3

    Hold the base of the ponytail with one hand, then lift the tail straight up with the other. Begin to coil it clockwise around the base. When you’ve made half of a circle, release the hand holding the base and use it to hold the forming bun as you continue to coil the tail of the chignon.

  4. Step 4

    Complete one rotation – a little more if you have longer hair – then tuck the end of the tail under the chignon. If your hair is long enough, you might be able to push the tail through the bun and make a knot.

  5. Step 5

    Secure the chignon using a few prong-shaped bobby pins or a hair stick. Push one pin through at any outside edge, collecting a small amount of the bun as you make the insertion. Secure the opposite side with a second pin. If you’re using a hair stick, push the tip up through the right corner of your chignon, so that a thin flat layer rests on top of the stick. Rotate the stick 180 degrees and push it gently through the base of the bun. As the stick begins to emerge, hook a small amount of hair on the underside of the left corner, then center the stick.
