Life is Better in Bronze

Who doesn’t love the look of sun-kissed skin? Unfortunately, sun-damaged skin and the risk of cancer that goes along with a tan isn’t very appealing. Sunless tanning has been around for years and is getting more and more sophisticated so you no longer need to fear orange tones and gross fake tan smells if you use a leading product range such as MineTan Body Skin.

Spray tanning has revolutionized the world of sunless tanning. In under an hour, you can walk out into the world as a golden god or goddess sans tan lines. But how do they perfect that faux glow? Below we compiled a list of answers to some of your most burning questions about spray tanning.

Will a Spray Tan Protect my Skin?

Unfortunately, no it doesn’t. When you venture out into the sun, slather on sunscreen. Although a spray tan produces a natural-looking tan, you need to remember that it’s only an illusion.

Is Spray Tanning Safe

The chemical found in spray tanning products is called DHA. The FDA has approved it as being safe, so as long as you visit a salon that uses this specific formula, you are good to go. Be sure to inquire about the ingredients before application. MineTan uses only skin-loving, PETA-approved ingredients and only 100% natural DHA, so your skin is getting looked after while you get your bronze on.

How Do I Get the Perfect Spray Tan

You must remember to exfoliate thoroughly before spray tanning. Since spray tanning darkens the top layer of your skin, the smoother your skin, the more even your tan will be. Be sure moisturize daily after having a spray tan to keep your skin from drying out.

How Dark Will I Get?

Just as with sunbathing outside, everyone’s skin is different. With MineTan products, some people will develop a dark tan, while others just a healthy glow. If you happen to fall into that category, repeated sessions can help you develop the rich color you desire.

How Long Will My Tan Last?

Depending on your levels of exfoliation and how often your slather on the moisturizer, your tan should last approximately 7+ days. The MineTan range carries a complete line of products to keep your tan looking fantastic, such as their Everyday Glow Gradual Tans which are daily moisturizers with a touch of tan to keep your skin hydrated and your color topped up.

What Should I Wear?

That is totally up to you. If you want to be line free, it’s best to skip the bikini, but in general, dark briefs for guys and dark-coloured bikinis for the girls.

Will I Turn Orange

With MineTan, that doesn’t exist. Our formula is specifically formulated to counteract orange tones.

I have Fair Skin. Is Spray Tanning Right For me?

Absolutely! MineTan is perfect for our fair-skinned friends. Our formulas have been perfected to suit all skin tones and types. For a more natural color, we recommend leaving the tan to develop for just 1-2 hours.

How Long Does it Take

The whole spray tan process usually takes under 30 minutes to achieve a warm, golden tan.
