How long will my spray tan last?

The average result is 7 to 10 days of color. Results may vary due to skin type, activities, and the skincare regimen followed before and after application. The tan created affects only the top layer of skin and your color will fade as your body naturally exfoliates. Skin naturally replaces itself every 28 days.

How long does it take?

A typical session can be accomplished in approximately 15 minutes. A mobile spray tan may take up to 30 minutes, due to set-up time.

Will I turn orange, feel sticky or smell from the solution?

Is spray tanning safe and how does it work?

The active ingredient in most sunless tanning products is known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a simple non-toxic sugar, which gained FDA approval in 1973. DHA is the active ingredient that gives your skin a golden brown color. It is often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. When applied to the skin, DHA penetrates only the outermost layer of skin and does not absorb into the body or bloodstream.

Do I need to wear sun protection after spray tanning?

A sunless tan is only the appearance of a tan and therefore provides your skin with NOSPF protection. It is advisable when outdoors to always be sun smart and protect your skin from harmful UV rays.

Is it safe for pregnant women?
