What is a spray tan?

spray tan is one method of using fake tan. The tan is sprayed onto the parts of the body that require tanning, using a tanning machine. A spray tan ensures a more flawless and even tan in comparison to traditional fake tan, which is rubbed or buffed on to the body. A spray tan avoids streaks leaving you with a perfect and even tan.

Sun Tan vs. Spray Tan

As skin cancer has become more prevalent in the press, we have learned a great deal about sun tans and the true affects they have on our skin. We know that Vitamin D from natural sunlight is good for us, however if your skin gains any colour from the sun, it is deemed as sun damage. Premature skin ageing occurs as a result from exposure to UVA from the sun and if you become sunburnt, develop a heat rash of have any sort of peeling, it is because of UVB rays, which are considered high risk factors for skin cancer. A spray tan is safer for your skin for the following reasons:

  • Spray tans and bronzing treatments do not contain UVA or UVB;
  • A bronzing treatment does not cause heat stroke, sunburn, heat rash or peeling;
  • A spray tan will help keep skin looking young and free from premature ageing;
  • Unlike the sun, any fake tan treatment will not dry out your skin.

How can I ensure that I get a good spray tan?

To make sure your tan lasts for as long as possible and to ensure even skin cover, use these helpful tips prior to your treatment:

  • Exfoliate!  Pay particular attention to any areas where skin is likely to become dry and the tan may stick, i.e. knees, elbows, ankles, heels;
  • Shave 8 hours before having the tan treatment or if you’re going to wax, please leave 24-48 hours between treatments;
  • It is recommended that you wear loose fitting clothes. Wear flip flops and a dark-coloured swimsuit or bikini for the spray tan.
