There are many reasons why people choose to have a spray tan; as a base for a real tan before going away, for year round colour, as a safer alternative to sunbeds and sun exposure, or for a special occasion such as a wedding.
SPRAY TAN V. NATURAL TAN
During the winter months a natural looking spray tan can lift your mood and make you at least feel a bit summery, even in the cold weather! Now is also a great time to start building up a base of colour before a spring time/early summer holiday.
Many people find they burn on holiday, especially during the first few days. This is usually, we’re afraid to say, down to impatience and wanting to tan on the first day. Choosing a low factor sunscreen won’t mean that you tan quicker; it means you will burn quicker! Sun exposure can cause all sorts of damage to your skin, and much of it lasting. Harmful UV rays will cause your skin to burn and go red in the short-term, which is extremely uncomfortable. Regular exposure like this over many years will cause your skin to look leathery and worn, and will age the look of your skin. In the worst instances, extreme sun exposure can lead to cancer.
By opting for a spray tan you eliminate any health risks. Spray tans are 100% safe. A spray tan before your holiday will make you feel confident on the beach and by the pool meaning you will be much more likely to choose a higher sun protection factor (SPF) as you already appear to have a tan, and will be in less of a rush to get a natural one.
