Client Question: I have a client that I think is DHA resistant because they gets dark after I spray them but after 5 hrs they has a quick rinse & most of the tan like 80% is off. Is there anything you recommend that I can do to advise that the tan DHA will develop deeper for them. I was thinking maybe they needs to be sprayed with the pH first? Can you help me out & how do you work with the pH spray?

Want to know how to make your spray tan last?
Treat it like a pharmaceutical product. So to know how to keep a spray tan longer you need to be aware of the composite of your spray tan solution. Inside the bottle of spray tan solution you have two key ingredients - 1) the tanning ingredient, DHA (dihydroxyacetane) and 2) the instant bronzers which are seen when tan is applied to the skin. The bronzers are made up on dyes and colourings. What many people don't know is that DHA and bronzers aren't friends. In fact they are spray tan frenemies. Together one of them provides the instant bronzed glow, while the other is the active ingredient that works with the wearer's skin to create the tan that will last on your skin for about a week......

So you love to stand behind a gun but need the tips to go from being a bronzer beginner to a spray tan super hero.

If this statistic doens't make you sick, I'm not sure what will. A recent Teen Vogue article says that over 2 million American teens are taking to the sizzle station (aka solarium) every week to achieve the deathly faux glow.
While the Eastern culture don't understand it, the Western culture converserly are literally dying for a tan. Dark, golden limbs have been popular since Coco Chanel pioneered the tan as a status symbol back in the 1920s. During that decade, Vogue had also clearly told their readers that "The 1929 women must be tan". The continual rise and rise of the tan is well documented here and despite the risks, the tabu tan is still (excuse the pun) in vogue.

One of the best spray tan tips is learning how to control the colour you will go. How dark your tan will be has a number of factors. We've called our brand Custom Tan because - everyone gets a custom colour because everyone has a different skin tone, and because you can customise the colour of your skin by determining how long you choose to leave the bronzer on before you wash it off. Let's explain.
How does fake tan actually work?
The way you achieve a gorgeous tan is via a chemical reaction between the outer layer of your skin (the stratum corneum) and the tanning ingredient (Dihydroxyacetane - DHA).

It's been over 85 years and the popularity of the fake tan keeps climbing and climbing - so just how did tanning get it's legs and why?
The History of Tan
Early on tans were associated with being lower class. It was a symbol of poverty of those who worked outdoor in the hot sun. But Coco Chanel was iconic enough to change an era of fashion led followers. Coco Chanel spent time out sailing the Riviera on the Duke of Westminister's yacht "Flying Cloud" and came back with a tan and it had instant appeal as modern, luxurious and independent. At the same time, the medical field went from saying that sun was a dangerous thing to being a cure within a span of 30 years and by the end of the 20’s beauty bible Vogue wrote “the 1929 girl must be tan” and she was. That was 85 years ago and since their arrival, tans have never gone out of fashion
