Everything You Need to Know about Spray Tanning


The pale, sickly look is definitely out of fashion. Everybody wants to have a good tan. Today, achieving the desired sexy sun-kissed look can be done with a method called spray tanning. This is a quick way to get the tan you desire. What do you need to know about it?

  • The basics. As the name suggests, this is a method that incorporates spraying your body with a special product. It is called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that interacts with your skin and turns its light tan into hot bronze. This is a completely safe product that normally lasts 3-7 days. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide any sun protection.

  • How is it applied? You go in a bath where there are many jets and nozzles that spray the substance on your body. They work on the same principle like the paint guns painters use. 

  • Pros and cons. If you compare this method of getting an attractive tan to lotions, creams, and gels, you will definitely see the difference. But what are the benefits of spray tanning? First of all, we have to mention here is that it is a quick and easy way to achieve a beautiful look. Another benefit is that your skin requires a little time to dry out completely. The biggest downside, however, is the cost of this procedure. Even though the prices may vary from a salon to salon, it’s usually quite expensive.

  • Is it safe? DHA has been tested and proven to be a product that won’t harm your skin or health in any way. If you decide to get tanned through spraying, make sure you bring something to cover your face.
