The ingredient in all sunless products is called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) which darkens the top layers of the skin and is completely safe.
Since the skin is constantly shedding and regenerating, this temporary effect generally lasts from 5-7 days and is completely safe for your skin. The spray tan doesn’t provide any protection against the sun’s rays so it is important to wear a UVA/UVB daily sunscreen.
At Kristyl, we use an airbrush or airgun machine to administer the spray. Our tanning solutions vary depending on the ethnicity of the client at hand. The average spray tan solution must be left on for approximately 8 hours but can vary from 2 – 8 hours.
