What is Spray Tan?
on tan is exactly that: A solution of Dihydroxyacetone (DHA)
is sprayed onto your skin by a technician and in 4 - 12
hours your tan naturally develops into a beautiful
golden brown, that, for most people, lasts from 7 to 10
It is a great way to have a tan without receiving any of
the damaging effects of the sun. That's right, there is
no risk of sun damage to your skin.
There are no lines like from a tanning bed and with the
Suddenly Tan Turbo Spray system, you will be a beautiful
bronze in about 15 minutes from start to finish. The
application method insures a smooth and even coverage.
Dihydroxyacetone is the active ingredient in our
solution. It reacts with the protein in your skin cells
and creates that beautiful color we all desire. We have
added Eurithulose to our solution which has eliminated
the orange tint that has been associated in the past
with DHA. DHA has been approved by the FDA as safe for
cosmetic use for over 30 years.
Because the dead cells are always sloughing off, the tan
gradually fades, just like a real tan. We recommend once
a week treatments to maintain the healthy glow. Repeated
treatments also build in color, so the more times you
are sprayed the darker you become and the longer it
The first step to attaining your new tan is to exfoliate
with our Suddenly Tan Black Pearl body scrub. This
removes excess dead cells so that the solution adheres
and penetrates more fully, giving you a longer lasting
tan. Don't forget your face, it looks beautiful on
faces. Many women find that they don't even need to wear
a foundation when they have been sprayed. Your
complexion is blended and looks very natural.
Immediately before your spray treatment we recommend
using a barrier cream on your finger and toe nails to
prevent the solution from staining them.
Using our Suddenly Tan Amplifier will moisturize your
skin and extend the life of your tan. It must be applied
at least 4 hours prior to or the night before spraying.
You should apply the amplifier 4 hours after spraying
and any time your skin needs to be moisturized. You must
not use another lotion before being sprayed. This will
block the effectiveness of the solution. The BIG key to
having a longer lasting beautiful tan is keeping your
skin as moist as possible.
We recommend waxing legs instead of shaving. This
reduces the amount of times that you have to remove hair
and will make your tan last longer. However, if you
prefer to shave do so at 24 hours before being sprayed
to prevent irritation.
A cosmetic color is incorporated into the solution for
immediate results and also to aid the technician in
ensuring complete coverage. We have found that the best
results seem to occur when you have been sprayed one day
then a second application in 24 to 48 hours. This gives
your tan a great boost. We do not recommend more than
two treatments per week. Check out "About Our Sprayer"
for more information about the application method.
