It is the talk of the town whether spray tans are safe or not. The main point is that the DHA was passed as safe by the FDA for lotions and external use only. Although spray tans are for still external use only, as it is sprayed on to the skin the solution can also be ingested. Bella Tanning offer masks for the majority of the procedure only taking it off to spray the face. This greatly minimizes breathing the product into your lungs. The general consensus is if you only have a spray tan once a month then you would not be high risk. It seems the only real risk is for the spray tanning specialist. This is why our trained specialists will wear a mask throughout the process of your spray tan – so don’t be worried! It seems there are more harmful substances in your hairspray that you spray over your hair and breath in then any problem with a spray tan.
