Knoxville Spray Tan
What is spray tan and how does it work
Spray tanning is a process in which a fine mist of tanning solution is sprayed on the skin. The solution contains the active ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA), this reacts with proteins in the skin in to producing a browning effect.
The DHA in the spray tan solution interacts with the amino acids in the surface of the skin in to react with the brown pigment in your skin called melanin. This reaction takes place within the first few hours after application and will continue to darken over the next 24 hours.
After your spray tan has been applied, it is important to avoid any activities that will cause you to sweat. This can cause the tan to develop uneven. It is also important to avoid contact with water while the tan is developing. Exposure to water will cause the tan to stop developing in the area.
Once your spray tan has been applied, it will typically last for 5-7 days before beginning to fade. To extend the life of your tan, it is important to moisturize regularly and avoid exfoliating the skin.
