How does a spray tan work?
Dihydroxyacetone (or DHA for short) is the tanning ingredient in all self-tanning formulas. DHA is a colorless 3-carbon sugar that when applied to the skin causes a chemical reaction with amino acids in the surface cells of the skin producing a darkening effect. DHA does not damage skin as it only affects the outermost cells of the epidermis, the outer layer of skin. To date, it is the only active ingredient approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for sunless tanning. The FDA has tested and approved DHA for use on the skin.
How long will a spray tan last?
The tan typically lasts 5 to 7 days. The tan created by the DHA affects only the top layer of the skin and will begin to fade after 5 to 6 days as the skin naturally begins to shed. To get the longest life from a spray tan, it is crucial to exfoliate prior to the spray tan application and to moisturize daily after the application.
When should you shower after getting the spray tan?
Most DHA sunless solutions take about 8 hours to completely develop and therefore, clients should not shower until after 8 hours from the time they are sprayed. Because a DHA tan takes 8 hours to completely develop, so no matter how quickly you shower, you should still expect to see the full tan color after 8 hours.
Why is it important to moisturize after a spray tan?
It is important to keep skin moisturized after sunless tanning as dry, flaky skin will shed faster and the tan will fade sooner. To slow down the body's natural exfoliation process, it is essential to moisturize daily.
How long does a spray tan take to dry?
The Aviva Labs solution dries the fastest in the industry because it is oil-free. The spray tan will dry in seconds.
