Sunless tanning methods have gained in popularity, thanks to the reports suggesting a connection between the UV rays emanating from the sun and skin cancer. Spray tanning is a tanning method that makes use of sprays to color your body to give it that golden glow. Modern methods have made the process more accessible to the society at large.

Spray Tanning vs. Tanning Lotions

Though the essential ingredients remain the same, the difference lies in the application.

* It requires less expertise to dab lotions and gels, but sprays require some knowledge of application.
* Also, there is a better chance of evenness with sprays - the shades are smoother and are spread more uniformly.
* The effects of the spray tan last longer than those with lotions.

What to Expect from Spray Tanning:

* The tanning booths are very effective and you have complete privacy. But if you get a professional to airbrush you, there are less chances of missing certain spots. Manually, you are likely to cover all parts. Though that is more laborious, the effects are there for all to see.


* A good professional will give you an even tan that can last up to seven days. With the use of oils and other extenders, you can prolong your tan.

* The spray tanning equipment can be portable and so you can use it at home or at kiosks.

* Spray tan is available in light, medium, and dark shades. Based on your complexion and preference, you can choose a color that suits you.

Important Points to Note Regarding Spray Tanning:

* Most tanning sprays will not have any harmful additives like dyes, paints, and stains. Use of these substances can affect your body adversely. It is not a necessary ingredient in spray tanning products.

* Ensure the tanning product you use is FDA-approved. As with all markets, the tanning products industry also has its share of phonies. Go with the established players to avoid risking patches and streaking.

* Most products do not come with sunscreens. Therefore, to protect yourself from a double tan that can ruin your efforts, apply appropriate sunscreen lotions.


* Cover all vital organs such as eyes and mouth to prevent contact; hair and nails must also be protected.

* Your skin type may have different reactions with various tan products. It is always advisable to apply some base coat or at least spray on a small portion to observe for any allergy.

* It is cheaper to buy your own spray tanning products than to visit a tanning booth or have a professional airbrush at a salon. This might be advisable if you want to use the process frequently. On the other hand, specialists will do a better job with level application.

If you want the bronzed look that people, who travel to beautiful beach resorts in places like Hawaii or the Caribbean have, spray tanning is an ideal way. It substitutes those expensive trips and still sport an attractive golden glaze!
