It is normal for you to wonder whether spray on tan is safe. This has been a concern for many people who are new to spray tan. Maybe you are worried about the chemicals finding their way into the blood stream and harming your body functions, especially if you happen to be pregnant at the time of the spray. This is not true when it comes to spray tanning products. The active ingredient known as Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) in most tanning solutions turns your skin brown. This substance is a simple carbohydrate derived from sugar cane or from fermentation of glycerine. DHA is not a dye but a chemical substance that reacts with amino acids on the outermost layer of your skin. The DHA’s effect on the body can last up to 10 days on the skin. DHA has been tested and confirmed not to be harmful to the surface of the skin.

The only precaution to take note of is that DHA must not get into the eyes or inhaled through the nose. Therefore, you must make sure that the spray does not get too close to your eyes, mouth or nose. To help you achieve this, you can wear lip balm, earplugs and nose plugs or filters. You can also hold your breath when the spray is close to your nose. You can afford not to spray tan your entire face and use a bronzer to match your face with the rest of your body.

Also, most spray tanning products contains Aloe Vera which is very useful to the body. Aloe vera is known to be useful in removing acne from the body after spray tanning. However, these two ingredients mentioned are not the only substances found in the spray tanning solutions. There are also other ingredients present in the solution. But as far as medical science is concerned, the active ingredients in the tanning solutions are not harmful to the body and so it can be said that tanning your skin is safe.
