Why should you spray tan?
The tan look is HOT. Having a great tan gives you a vibrant look, can help enhance the appearance of your muscle tone and make you look slimmer. But it’s important that you get a tan as safely as possible. UV rays, which are released from natural or artificial light sources, can be the cause of skin damage, even deadly skin cancer. Here you’ll find a comparison between different tanning techniques and information about the safest and fastest technique for to achieve your desired “glow” without the UV ray health risks.
Tanning outside is most time consuming. To achieve the tan look, most people need to lie out in the sun for several hours for a number of days. Many people will sunburn first, then it will turn to a tan, however some only burn and can never achieve a tan from lying outside. Investigators believe that people who received one bad sunburn when young enough to double the chances of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, as an adult. And getting more than five normal sunburns throughout a person’s life also doubles the risk of melanoma. 
Indoor tanning equipment that includes all artificial light sources, including beds, bulbs, lamps, cubicles etc., releases UVA and UVB radiation. The amount of radiation formed through indoor radiation is equal to the sun’s production, and in some cases may be even more. Several studies have shown that contact to UV radiation is connected to an inflated risk of melanoma or non-melanoma skin cancer.  Some US states have even banned indoor tanning use by anyone under the age of 18, stating the health risks are too great.
Airbrush Spray Tanning
Burning in the sun or in a tanning bed is truly harmful for our skin. But spray tanning is completely safe for your skin. Spray tanning is a form of self tanning, a sunless or lightless tanning that you can use in your home, a booth or at a salon with a technician’s help. The spray has an element called DHA (Dihydroxyacetone), derived from sugar beet root, which intermingles with your skin’s natural chemistry and adheres to your skin cells turning it bronze or “tan”.
This effect typically lasts from 7 to 10 days, depending on how you care for your tan. The result you will achieve from spray tanning is really very good. A lot of people use spray tanning to get a beautiful, natural looking bronze glow. Celebrities and models often use spray tanning to quickly get the desired look for an event.
Receiving a spray tan is very easy. Once you’ve decided to have one applied, you can choose to have an airbrush spray tan applied by a technician or a booth spray tan applied by a machine. The cost of the two is typically similar, however the airbrush tan is applied by a person using a handheld gun, ensuring that perfect coverage is achieved over all parts of the body, whereas the machine leaves a bit more room for error, as it cannot see that a perfect application has been applied. The entire process takes about 15 minutes and you are instantly tan. When making your appointment you will be given specific instructions regarding what needs to be done prior to spray tanning, what you will wear during and after the tan, as well as after care instructions to maintain your beautiful tan as long as possible.
Spray tanning will give you instant color. Initially you will see the bronzer that has been applied to your skin, and the tan will continue to develop over the next 6 to 8 hours. Once that time has passed, you will rinse off the bronzer, leaving you with a lasting and glowing tan. Moreover, after the initial shower, there is no more concern of your tan rubbing off on your clothes, sheets or partner! Self applied tanning lotions and creams need to be applied repeatedly to achieve maximum results, always leaving that worry that you may turn something (or someone!) a different color.
The color you achieve with spray tanning varies from person to person, because we all have somewhat different skin tone and body chemistry. A consultation will be done prior to your first tan to discuss the best and desired shade for your individual appearance.
While spray tanning does not provide any protection against the sun’s rays, you’ve already prevented the damage that can be done when you try to get a tan in a harmful way.
