Spray tanning has become increasingly popular over the years, and it’s not difficult to see why. Not only does it give you that beautiful sun-kissed glow, but it also helps you avoid the harmful effects of UV rays. However, with popularity comes myths and misconceptions. If you’re new to spray tanning, you may have heard some things that are simply not true. 

In this article, we’ll debunk some of the most common spray tanning myths and provide you with the facts. 

Myth #1: Spray tans turn you orange

This is perhaps the most widely believed myth about spray tans. The truth is, if your spray tan turns out orange, it’s because of the solution used, not because of the tanning method. Choosing a spray tanning specialist who uses a high-quality solution and knows how to apply it correctly can ensure that your tan looks natural and healthy.

Myth #2: It’s impossible to achieve an even tan with spray tanning

While it’s true that spray tanning can result in uneven color if not applied correctly, it’s not impossible to achieve a perfect, even tan. It all comes down to the quality of the spray tanning technician you choose. A skilled technician will be able to customize the application to your specific skin type, ensuring a smooth and even result.

Myth #3: Spray tans don’t last long

The longevity of a spray tan depends on many factors, including your skin type, the solution used, and how well you care for your skin afterwards. With proper care, your spray tan can last between 5-10 days. To extend the life of your tan, avoid scrubbing your skin too hard during showers and avoid chlorinated pools and hot tubs.

Myth #4: Spray tans are only for women

While it’s true that spray tanning is often marketed towards women, the truth is that it’s a great option for men as well. Spray tanning can provide men with a healthy and natural-looking glow, without the harmful effects of UV rays.

Myth #5: Spray tanning is dangerous

Many people are under the impression that spray tanning is dangerous because of the chemicals used in the solution. However, the truth is that spray tans are much safer than natural tanning. While some solutions may contain chemicals, at Luminous Glow we use a solution which is 99% organic! 

Spray tanning has become a popular alternative to natural tanning and with good reason. However, there are many myths surrounding this safe and effective option. Hopefully, this article has provided you with the facts you need to make an informed decision about spray tanning.
