Here are the answers to some of the most common questions people ask about spray tanning. If you do have any questions please feel free to email us at info@hairangelextensions.com

What is spray tanning and how does it work?

Spray tanning involves spraying the skin with a solution containing an active ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA). The solution is sprayed using a specialist low pressure spraying machine. 

DHA is a 100% natural colourless sugar found in walnuts and rapeseed oil plants, it is 100% safe and natural. The DHA interacts with the amino acids in the outer layers of the skin and produces a golden brown colour. This development happens during 2-8 hours after the spray tan is applied.  This process is similar to when apples go brown when exposed to the air.

The tan colour that you can see immediately on the skin as it is sprayed is the guide colour. This washes off when you bathe 8+ hours following your spray tan.

Is spray tanning safe?

Yes. Spray tanning is the ONLY safe way to tan because the skin is not exposed to dangerous ultraviolet rays

DHA has been approved for use in the beauty industry for over 30 years. No adverse effects have been reported other than minor skin irriations on people allergic to DHA.  Allergic reactions are extremely rare, if you have experienced allergic reactions to self-tanning or other beauty products please arrange a skin patch test first with your therapist.

Remember - With a sunless tan there is NO risk of sunburn, peeling, sunstroke or other sun-related diseases, it is the only safe way to tan.

How long will my spray tan last?

Lasting time very much depends on the skin type.  Generally spray tans fade between 5-10 days following application. Tans fade naturally as the body sheds its dead skin cells from the upper layers of the epidermis. You can maximise the length of time a spray tan lasts by moisturising every day, twice a day. The length of time a spray tan lasts cannot be guaranteed as it changes person to person, but good maintenance will ensure it lasts the maximum amount of time.

Do I need to prepare for my spray tan?

Yes! You must, must, must exfoliate the night before your spray tan. Exfoliating removes your dead skin cells, allowing the DHA to work with the new skin cells.  If you don't exfoliate properly you are risking ending up with a patchy tan.

Makeup, moisturisers and deoderant can prohibit absorption and so should be removed before the spray tan.

What happens during a spray tan?

  • If this your first spray tan your therapist will ask you a few questions and fill in a consultation card
  • You'll have a few minutes to undress, or change into your underwear and remove jewellery whilst the therapist sets up the tanning cubicle and equipment
  • Next a barrier cream will be applied to your hands, elbows, knees and tops of your feet to prevent them from over tanning
  • You will be asked to step into the tanning cubicle to be sprayed
  • The spraying takes about 10 minutes plus another couple of minutes to dry
  • During your spray you will see a golden/bronze colour on your skin, this is the guide colour
  • The actual tan develops over the following 8 hours
  • The guide colour washes off when you first shower following the spray tan
  • Could I go orange or streaky?

No! We will not allow our clients to be orange or streaky. There are different strengths of DHA and we will select the most appropriate one for your skin colouring bearing in mind how dark you would like to be.  We use Sienna X tanning products which result in gorgeous, natural-looking tans. Streaks are usually a result of hand-applied tanning products. We spray a fine mist all over the body to achieve the perfect streak-free tan.

Do I have to be naked?

No! It is entirely up to you what you wear or don't wear. If you don't want to get naked suggests wearing old, dark underwear that you don't mind staining. Disposable underwear can be provided if requested.

Who shouldn't have a spray tan?

It is advised that women do not have a spray tan during the first three months of pregnancy. This is because the change in hormone levels can alter the melanin in the skin resulting in a patchy tan, this may also occur if you are having HRT or IVF treatment. If you're skin is patchy due to melanin levels the spray tan will not mask it as the white areas will not tan. Bronze Goddess Tanning also recommends that you refrain from spray tanning if you are breast feeding. 

Bronze Goddess Tanning will require written consent from your GP if you have asthma or respiratory problems and if you have recently undergone surgery.

You will not : Go streaky, Go orange

Spray Tan Pre/After Care Advice

Before your tan

  • Wax or shave at least 24 hours before treatment.
  • On the day of your treatment please avoid wearing make-up(eyeliner and mascara is ok) , deoderant, perfume, body oils or lotions as these may react with the tanning agents in the self tan.

After your tan

Immediately after your treatment

  • Wear loose clothing
  • Keep skin completely dry, avoid water contact.
  • Do not apply any products over the developing tan.
  • Do heavy forms of excercise whilst your tan is developing in the first 5-6hrs of application  as sweating excessively may cause your tan to develop patchy.
  • Allow tan to develop for 6/8 hours, overnight if possible.
  • Avoid other beauty/hair treatments whilst tan is developing.
  • Avoid activities that will make you perspire
  • Drink hot beverages through a straw or avoid whilst tan is developing as contact with a hot cup can strip colour from around your mouth. Toothpaste can also strip colour whilst your tan is developing.

After your tan has developed

  • Rinse off remaining colour guide with warm/hot water, once the water runs clear wash yourself with a mild soap.
  • Avoid products that contain alpha hydroxy acids (AHA's) as they can strip colour.
  • Avoid swimming pools as chlorine will prematurely fade your tan.
