Spray tanning is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body.
This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which derives from sugar. It interacts with your own skin’s chemistry to give just the top layer of your skin more colour. It is not absorbed into the blood stream.
This temporary effect generally lasts for up to 7 days and is completely safe for your skin. If you’re reading this far you’ve probably decided to go ahead and give spray tanning a chance!
Good for you!

Fake tan contains a chemical called DHA, which reacts with the air and the amino acids in the top layer of the skin, causing it to gradually darken. Only the uppermost skin cells are affected.
Yes, it is completely safe! DHA is non-toxic and the skin darkening reaction is confined to the top later of the skin only – nothing is absorbed into the body. This is highlighted in the way that a fake tan fades away slowly as the skin cells undergo their natural regeneration process and flake off the body.
It takes just 30 minutes for a top to toe spray tan! It’s super quick, hassle free and promises to create a flawless finish. Once your skin dries you should pop on some loose clothing to avoid creating any marks on the skin, wait for the colour to develop and wash the solution off in the shower after the recommended time specified.
Remove any unwanted hair a couple of days before your spray tanning session. This is especially important if you tend to wax your legs and underarms because it gives time for your open pores to close up. If spray tan is applied immediately after a wax it can lead to a spotty finish and possible streaks. Be sure to exfoliate and moisturise the day before in order to hydrate the top layer of skin cells that will react with the clever darkening ingredients in the spray tan solution. Arrive at your appointment with clean skin, with no moisturiser, deodorant or make up on.
Your radiant tan will last for about 5 to 10 days depending on how well you care for your skin following your treatment. If you moisturise your skin regularly and avoid using harsh shower gels and soaps that can cause the colour to fade, your sunless tan will look glorious for more than a week.
I have been taught how to spray tan by not one but TWO celebrity spray tanners. I am fully qualified in spray tanning with a City in Guild certificate.
Once you have had your flawless spray tan, you need to be careful with your clothing whilst the solution is drying. Do not wear anything that is going to pinch or rub the skin. Wear loose, dark clothing, (no bra if possible) with no tight elasticated waist bands or tight straps. Wear loose fitting shoes and do not put socks on your feet. Do not immediately put glasses on. Do not put any jewellery on.
The tanning solution will only set after your first shower, so until then, you need to avoid the following: Doing anything that is going to make you sweat. So no gym sessions directly after your spray tan! Washing your hands Getting any substances on your skin, such as make-up, deodorant, perfume, water & moisturiser etc. Crossing your legs Wearing tight fitting clothing
