What is Spray Tanning?

Spray tanning (also known as sunless tanning) involves entering a booth and having a light mist of tanning solution sprayed onto your skin. In the mist is Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA. This is an ingredient that actually harnesses the chemistry in your own skin and results in a glowing bronze effect.  Sunless tanning mist can be administered with an automatic jet machine, or it can be applied by a trained professional using an airbrush.

A glowing tan will even out your skin tone, hide scars and sun spots, and give you a more youthful, beautiful appearance. With that said, we all know that sunbathing and tanning beds are a no-go. Not only will these practices damage your skin irreparably, but they’ll put you at a higher risk for skin cancer. Fortunately, spray tanning offers a perfect no-sun solution to getting an awesome tan!

Tips for your Spray Tanning treatment

  • Put petroleum jelly on your palms, the bottoms of your feet, your ankles, knees, elbows, and lips.
  • Don’t wear your best clothes to your session.
  • Use a shower cap in the booth.
  • Don’t shower right away after your session.
  • Don’t moisturize right away after your session.

Getting a spray tan is safe overall and far safer than sunbathing or using a tanning bed. Still, the FDA does recommend keeping the DHA mist solution away from your nose, mouth, and eyes.
