Since the year 2000, spray tan has taken the world by storm and has offered the healthiest looking tan to both men and women.
The basic mechanism of self spray tanning involves applying a unique mist to the whole body. This mist is normally sprayed all over the body inside a booth that can be found in several hi-end tanning salons. This mist consists of dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a chemical that reacts with the dead skin cells of the body cosmetically turning them brown. Hence, after a tan, the skin looks golden brown.
Depending on the type of booth, the mist used is either oil-based or water-based. People who have sensitive skin should go only for a water base. Several salons also offer a variety in the intensity of mists letting the customer choose the degree of darkening. If somebody is extremely fair-skinned, they should not go for a very dark tan as that may look awkward and fake, irrespective of how good the product is.
Gives A Great Tan
Spray tanning makes the skin golden brown and not orange. The reaction changes the skin color, so one does not have to worry about things like smear lines; also, if the products are taken from a well-reputed company then that ensures that it will offer a color that looks precisely like a natural tan. Even the fair-skinned people who normally turn pink than brown while tanning may benefit from a spray tan.
