If you are intent on getting a spray tan then you may like to get a few details on the topic.

This could be the case because you may be in two minds about whether a spray tan is the best option for you.

That's why zz have compiled a list of the keys things to consider before having a spray tan:

It is important to know exactly how long a spray tan will last and the length of time needed between sessions. Well, a person’s body constantly sheds dead skin cells, which is why natural sun tans fades relatively quickly. Most people will have a tan that lasts around a week but on average it can last anywhere from five days to ten days. Although if the person uses a daily moisturiser after application then the tan is likely to last longer. But each person’s skin reacts differently and their skin will behave differently under the effects of the spray tanning fluid.

It's safe to say that spray tanning booths don't appeal to everyone and in fact whether someone opts to have a go should depend on their complexion. This is because spray tanning formula works by enhancing natural skin tones and so works much better on people with darker skin. What this means is that a person with a Mediterranean complexion may certainly benefit from trying a spray tanning booth facility. A fair skinned person on the other hand may find that the bronze effect seems less natural than it would do for others and hence it may not have the desired effect.

The main component in a spray on tan is the chemical dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and although it is non-toxic it can be an allergen to some people. Due to this people that haven't used a spray tan before should really undergo a patch test before they use the tanning booth for the first time. Even though most people won't have this kind of allergy, it's definitely worth having the test done before you set foot in a tanning booth! So it is a much better idea to be safe rather than sorry, particularly when you consider that the DHA will affect the whole of your body so an allergic reaction will be quite large and not localised.

The ultimate price of the spray tanning can vary depending on where the store is and the particular service that's asked for. Prices also vary depending on whether a person books in advance or books multiple sessions. For example, spray tans from sienna-x.co.uk can cost in the region of £25-£30, but this does include post tan care items to help clients get the most out of the procedure. Whereas if a person were to book in advance, then they can make a saving. In some cases arranging a multi-tan session early can lead to reductions. There are also spray tan parties, where the host gets a free spray tan.

You can do a couple of things before your spray tan to help the colour last longer. The first thing to do is ensure you exfoliate with a scrub or loofah to remove dead skin cells. This is because in order for your spray tan to last it is vital to avoid bathing or showering up to 12 hours after a tan application. Before the tan has applied and in order to ensure an even glow the individual is advised to wax or use a razor to clean the skin of hair before their tanning application. Furthermore, it is essential to come to the tanning salon in loose fitting, dark clothing as after the application the solution is likely to rub off onto their clothes.

BY sticking to these pointers you should have a clear idea of whether a spray on tan is idea for your own personal circumstances.
