WHY SPRAY TANNING ?

THE TRUTH

It’s no secret that many of us look better with a tan, and with more and more health concerns surrounding sun exposure, spray tans (also known as sunless tanning) are becoming the preferred method of achieving that sexy tan. The flawless glow you’ll achieve with a spray tan will give you confidence and help you look way hotter than buying a new outfit would.
WHAT IS A SPRAY TAN?

A spray tan is a fine mist of self-tanning (now) odourless solution that is sprayed onto your body while you stand. This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that tan your skin by interacting with your skin’s cells.

IS IT SAFE?

100% yes ! The product are harmless, 100% organic and the DHA is natural. With the latest technology in tanning solutions, you can now achieve a customized, flawless, natural-looking tan the safe way.

CAN I STILL GO TO THE BEACH?

Of course! That is one of the main goal. After application, you have to wait a few hours (from 1 to 8hrs) before showering or swimming. After that, you can do whatever you want. However, spray tan isn't a sunscreen, so don't forget to apply sunscreen!
