How Does a Spray Tan Work?

The most effective spray tanning products contain dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, a carbohydrate derived from glycerin or other plant sources such as sugar cane. Although it’s colorless, DHA has a way of interacting with the amino acids naturally found in your skin cells to make your skin become darker. The more DHA that you apply to your skin when you get a spray tan, the darker your skin becomes. FDA approved DHA is a common ingredient in spray tan solutions and is safe for external use on the skin.

Are Spray Tans Bad for You?

The ingredients in most spray tan solutions are FDA-approved and do not have any known adverse side effects. When used appropriately, the DHA in a spray tan solution is considered safe. The FDA allows DHA to be externally applied to the skin for spray tans, improper use may have unknown risks. The FDA advises that you avoid inhaling DHA and cover areas around your eyes and lips when spray tanning.

Most sunless tanning solutions do not contain sunscreen and won’t protect you from exposure to the sun's UV rays. Follow these spray-tan tips and make sure you apply sunscreen before you go outside.

Can You Spray Tan While You Are Pregnant?

You should always consult with your doctor for guidance about what products are safer for use on your skin during your pregnancy. Although the ingredients in spray tan solutions are FDA-approved, you should cover your mouth and eye areas if you are pregnant since the risks of inhaling DHA are unknown.

Spray Tans vs. Real Tans

Spray tanning is a much safer option to achieve a natural looking glow. Laying out in the sun can be harmful because of excessive exposure to UV rays that can damage your skin cells which increases your risk for skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation and the American Cancer Society both recommend spray tanning as the safer alternative to sun tanning.
