Spray Tanning FAQ
What is Spray Tanning and How Does It Work?
Spray tanning involves applying an active ingredient, dihyrdaoxycetone (DHA), using a specialist low-pressure spray gun. DHA is a colourless sugar, which interacts naturally with your skins amino acids to produce a golden brown colour. You will be sprayed with a lightly coloured DHA solution, but the actual tan takes 8 hours to develop.
Is It Safe?
YES! It is much safer than exposing your skin to the sun's rays. DHA has been approved by the FDA for use in the personal care industry for over 30 years. No adverse effects have been reported. If you have experienced allergic reactions to self-tanning or other beauty products, arrange a skin patch test prior to your tan. As well as DHA, all products are enriched with aloe vera and other natural high quality ingredients to actively moisturise and nourish you skin and they smell nice too.
What Do I Do Before My Tan?
To get the best from your tan you need to remove all your dead skin cells by exfoliating allowing the DHA to get to work on new skin, meaning the tan will last longer. Moisturiser, make up deodorants and perfume will prohibit absorption and should be removed before your tan. The night before your tan exfoliate with SIENNA ROUGH IT UP, SMOOTH IT OFF EXFOLIATOR and then moisturise your body, paying particular attention to knees, elbows, ankles and problem areas.
What Do I Do After My Tan?
DO NOT shower or bath for at least 8 hours after your tan even if you think you are looking very dark as this is just a guide colour.
