Spray Tanning FAQ
Q. So, sunless tanning… What is it and how exactly does it work?
A. Sunless tanning products are centred around an active ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (commonly known as DHA) to your skin.
DHA is a sugar (without colour) that interacts directly with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin, the epidermis, to produce a gorgeous golden brown colour.
When applying your sunless tan, a tanning product containing a lightly coloured solution of DHA will be applied all over the body, before being showered off when your actual tan has developed.
Q. Importantly, is it safe?
A. Spray tanning and fake tanning are MUCH safer than revealing your skin to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. It may not last as long, but you still get a great ‘healthy-looking’ tan.
Remember, with a sunless tan there is no risk of sunburn, peeling, sunstroke or, more importantly, long-term skin diseases and problems.
Q. If I use sunless tanning, will it streak or turn me orange?
A. Fake tanning has evolved endlessly since it first emerged on the market. Our products have been developed using modern, specialist technology which seeks to eliminate these issues.
Following our pre and post tanning guides will help ensure that you’ll be left with a natural sun-kissed look and long lasting results.
Q. How dark will the final colour be?
A. This depends on how you naturally tan. If you tan easily in the sun, the darker you will tan with sunless tanning products.
If you’d like a deep and dark sunless tan, apply a second application of your Sienna X tan 24 hours after the first application (allowing the first layer to develop)..
