#5 of 11 Things you NEED to know about UV Tanning – Can I get a spray tan instead of UV tanning?

Spray Tans are amazing! There are many people who do spray tans only, and maintain a spray tan year round. What you need to know about spray and how it compares to UV tanning is that they are completely different animals. The main ingredient in spray tan solution is DHA, which reacts with the proteins in the skin to turn brown…without UV exposure. It is largely accepted as a safer way to get a tan because there is no UV at all. The drawback, is that it offers NO SUN PROTECTION. It makes perfect sense; we develop a base tan and resilience to sun by gradually exposing our skin to UV rays in a tanning bed, with a spray tan that exposure isn’t happening, so you do not have the protection.
If your goal is to have great color for any occasion and you’re not trying to protect yourself from sunburn then spray away! It’s a super fast application (90 seconds), with full color development in 4-8 hours, and lasts 5-7 days. To learn more about spray tanning, check out our Pro tips for Spray Tanners blog!
