Don’t want to expose your skin to the sun’s damaging rays, but still want that sun-kissed glow? Consider sunless tanning products. Understand how these products work and the importance of applying them carefully and correctly.
How do sunless tanning products work?
Sunless tanning products can give your skin a tanned look without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. The active ingredient in most sunless tanning products is the color additive, dihydroxyacetone (DHA). When applied, dihydroxyacetone reacts with dead cells in the skin’s surface to temporarily darken the skin and simulate a tan. The coloring typically wears off after a few days.
How to prepare for your Sunless Tan?
- Tan at the right time. You need to avoid water for at least 4-8 hours after you tan.
- Exfoliate before your session to remove dead, dry skin cells. This allows the bronzing spray to absorb into fresh, clean skin.
- Skip the lotion and makeup.
- Wear lose-fitting, dark clothing to your session.
How long does a spray tan last?
In general, your spray tan will last around a week (5 to 10 days) but it will start to gradually fade before this time. This is because the skin will naturally continue to regenerate itself and old skin cells will be sloughed away to reveal paler skin beneath.
How long should I wait after a session before showering?
To give the DHA enough time to fully set, it is recommended to wait 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.
Can you shave with a spray tan?
Waxing and shaving exfoliates the skin so it should be done one day prior to your spray tan. You can shave after your spray tan but note that it will fade your tan faster.
