What is 'Sunless Tanning'?

Sunless Tanning | Automated Spray Tanning Machines - The Tanning Shop

Sunless tanning, also known as spray tanning, self-tanning or fake tanning, involves applying products that darken the skin without exposure to ultraviolet (UV) exposure. These products typically contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA), a colorless chemical that reacts with the amino acids in the dead skin cells to produce a browning effect. The result is a temporary tan that can last from a few days to a week, depending on the product and skin type.

When it comes to spray tanning there are two main methods used to apply the spray tan solution, this is either done by hand by a professional spray tan technician or by an automated spray tanning booth.

Here at the Tanning Shop we are a HUGE fan of the automated spray tan booth for its privacy, accuracy, speed and convenience! Now we know you may be a little bit reluctant if you have seen THAT friends episode, however if you follow the voice control instructuions within the booth you will be left with glowing results every time.

We have automated spray tanning facilities available in over 40 of our stores across the UK – find your nearest store here!

So what’s the differenance between an automated spray booth and a manual spray tanning performed by a technician?

Manual spray tanning performed by a technician: This method involves a professional spray tan technician applying the spray tan solution to your skin using a handheld device. Usually this is offered either in a salon setting or at home by a professional mobile technician.

Automated spray tan booth: When using an automated spray tan machine you are alone in the booth and the booths voice controls guide you into position as the automated jets mist the solution onto your body from head to toe.

Why do we favour automated spray booths?

Automated spray tanning booths have revolutionised the sunless tanning industry by offering a quick, efficient, and consistent way to achieve a beautiful tan. Here are some key benefits:

1. Convenience

One of the biggest advantages of automated spray tanning booths is their convenience. Automated booths allow for a quick and hassle-free experience. Most sessions take just a few minutes, making it easy to fit into a busy schedule.

2. Even Coverage

Spray tanning booths use advanced technology to ensure a uniform application. The booths are equipped with multiple nozzles that spray the tanning solution evenly across the body, reducing the risk of streaks or missed spots.

3. Customisable Results

Whether you prefer a light glow or a deep bronze, our spray tan solution can be adjusted to meet your specific preferences and includes the ability to add additional bronzers and fragrance.

4. Privacy

For those who may feel uncomfortable with manual spray tanning performed by a technician, an automated booths offers a more private alternative. You can enjoy the tanning process in the privacy of the booth, which can help alleviate any potential awkwardness or self-consciousness.
