Is a Spray on Tan Safe?

June 21st 2009 12:32
According to the Food and Drug Administration, FDA, sunless tanning products are generally much more safe than sunbathing and tanning in tanning beds. When applied to the skin, the FDA considers spray on tans safe, although there are potential risks to spray on tans.

The risks for spray on tans are not nearly as dangerous as natural UV or artificial UV rays. The spray-on tanning or mist-on tanning options that you can consider at a salon or spa are generally applied to the entire body, including the face in order to ensure a full balanced color, but this creates the potential of the product getting into your eyes, nostrils, or lips.

If DHA is inhaled or ingested, there are possible risks, bu the exact risks are not fully known since spray-on tanning is relatively new in comparison. So, as a general rule, you'll want to keep your eyes closes and hold your breath while the tanner is being applied to your face. You may even want to consider protective goggles or nose plugs.

it may be safer but the tandoori tan usually looks awful

if you are pale with a freckly complexion fake tans will usually just make you look orange

nothing wrong with looking creamy or porcelain

Supposidely they're fixed so that you don't turn orange. Like you I'd don't see a problem with being plain pale.
