Forget everything you may have heard or even experienced in the past. Here’s the naked truth about spray tanning today.
Nowadays spray tans are formulated to counter orange undertones. And, like many of today’s makeup foundations, your spray tan is customizable to match your skin and meet your #tangoals. If you’re new to spray tanning, you may consider starting with a lighter shade and building up with color-enhancing products.
Unlike a self-tanner, which obviously relies on its owner to put it on correctly, a spray tan is applied by a perfectly calibrated system for a flawlessly even tan. Still, preparation and maintenance are critical. Exfoliate and shave before your spray tan, and make sure your moisturizer is designed for sunless tanning.
Today’s spray tans are formulated to virtually eliminate the smell commonly associated with them. But not all skin chemistry is the same — so if the smell bothers you, consider adding a scent to your spray tan. It’ll enhance the overall experience and you can be assured you’ll smell good, too.
DHA (dihydroxyacetone) — the active ingredient in all sunless tanners — is a colorless, natural, plant-derived compound that has been FDA-approved since the 70s for external application. Planet Tan features only eco-certified DHA solutions. In accordance with the latest FDA guidelines, we provide protective eyewear, nose filters and lip balm. In addition, all spray tan systems self-clean immediately after every session.
