Let us answer your spray tanning questions!!!


What is sunless spray tanning?

 Sunless Spray Tanning is the spray/mist application of Sunless Tanning Solution to desired areas of your body. When applied, DHA (The active ingredient in Sunless Tanning Solution) reacts with the proteins in the skin’s superficial layer to form a golden brown color. Your skin begins to darken two to three hours after application and reaches its peak color within 24 hours. The color will gradually fade through natural exfoliation, just like a tan from the sun.


How should I prepare for my sunless spray tanning session?

 Exfoliate and shave the day before or the day of your Sunless Spray Tanning Session. (The day before is preferred) The day of your Sunless Spray Tanning Session refrain from using moisturizers, perfumes, lotions, oils or deodorants that may create a barrier between your skin and the Airbrush Tanning Solution. (You may resume using these after your first shower or bath)


How long should I wait to shower after my spray tanning session?

  To give the DHA enough time to fully set, we recommend waiting a minimum of 4 hours after a Sunless Spray Tanning session or 8 hours for optimal results. Showering sooner may diminish the intensity of the tan. If you tanned using an Instant Cosmetic Bronzer option the Instant Cosmetic Color will wash off in the shower, but the color produced by the DHA will remain.


Will swimming effect my tan?

  Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade the Sunless Spray Tanning results, cause possible streaking and will diminish the length of your tan. However, normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of the tan.


Will my skin look orange?

Not at all. Before Sunless Spray Tanning, most self-tanners were creams and lotions applied by hand. That meant inconsistent coverage. Too much lotion applied in one place left the skin looking orange. Not enough lotion left unattractive streaks.Our solutions leave you orange-less and not sticky like others.


Will the spray tan solution stain my clothing?

 The Sunless Spray Tanning Bronzing formula is completely water soluble. Users may notice some initial cosmetic color on the inside of their clothing, but this color will wash out in cold water, however DHA in the tanning formula may permanently stain what you wear during your session.


How long will my B Sun Kissed spray tan last?

  A Sunless Spray Tan can last up to 7 days depending on the formulation you choose and the condition of your skin.


What is DHA?

 The active ingredient most often used in all sunless tanners including tinted moisturizers, self-tanners, and spray tan solution is called DHA or dihydroxyacetone. DHA is a carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound approved by the FDA for use in externally applied sunless tanning solutions. For misting applications, the FDA recommends protective measures to prevent eye contact, inhalation or ingestion. DHA is often derived from a vegetable source like beets or sugar cane. Its properties as a skin darkener were discovered in the 1920s but weren’t marketed as such until the 1960s, then added to the FDA’s list of approved colors for cosmetic products in the 1970s.


Is the DHA in the spray tan solution safe to use?

 The FDA has approved DHA for external application to your skin. For misting applications, the FDA recommends protective measures to prevent eye contact, inhalation or ingestion. To make sure you are completely protected, the FDA suggests wearing protective eyewear, nose filters, lip balm, and protective undergarments.
