The most important tool in learning to spray tan is the spray tan solution.  It is important to use a good quality solution, and to know how to correctly apply it.


Spray tan solution comes in a one litre bottles, and is made up with different coloured bronzer bases and varying percentages of tanning ingredient, known as DHA.


DHA is the ingredient that tans the skin via a chemical process called the Maillard Reaction.  This is a chemical reaction between the outer layer of the skin, and the tanning ingredient DHA (Dihydroxyacetane). 


A spray tan session should include one thorough full body application, and a light second coat to make sure the body is completely covered in tan.  The client should not feel wet or sticky, and the bronzer should not be blotchy or running.  On average, during a learn to tan class, students will attempt to use approximately 50ml of solution.


Approximately 40-50% of the colour change happens in the first few hours, which means for a light tan, clients can rinse the colour back after an hour or two, but must leave it longer to achieve a darker colour.


Full colouration can take 18-24 hours depending on the client’s skin and what the keratins and animo acids are doing on the client at that point in time.
