Sunless Tanning Tip

Here’s a sunless tanning tip you need to know.

It’s recommended that you avoid applying a self-tanner or spray tan before going out into the sun, unless you plan on using a sunscreen over it. Most self-tanners and spray tans work by using Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) as the main ingredient. According to a 2007 study published in Germany, DHA causes the skin to release 180% more free radicals once exposed to the sun, therefore sun protection is extremely important. SPF 30+ is always recommended and applying every 80 minutes will give you the protection you need from the sun.

Will applying SPF rub off my sunless tan?

It depends on whether you are using a chemical sunscreen or a physical sunscreen. You never know what chemicals will do when mixed together. I always opt for a physical sunscreen, why expose our bodies to more chemicals?  I recommend using COOLA SPF Spray, SPF 50 to ensure complete coverage and ultimate protection.
