It’s believed that Coco Chanel inspired society’s trend towards tanned skin in the 1920s. After a visit to the French Riviera where Coco Chanel spent a little too much time out in the sun, she returned to Paris with a darker skin tone. Apparently society loved the look and a new trend in darker skin tones was set.
Even today society has a preference for that sun-kissed look. However, with studies indicating too much sun can cause skin damage, such as wrinkles, or skin cancer, people are looking for ways to get that healthy glow without the consequences. This is where sunless tanners come in. Also known as spray tanning and UV-free tanning, sunless tanning gained popularity since the 1960s.
Tanning helps to camouflage varicose veins, stretch marks and cellulite so it’s no wonder the tanning business is a $5 billion industry today. This is why it’s important to carefully select who you use to get that bronzed skin. If you live in the Los Angeles area and are looking for a safe and natural looking sunless tan, you are in luck. Spray di Sole is an organic spray tanning company located in Studio City, California that gives you a orange free, odor free, residue free 100% Natural tan.
Spray di Sole uses the typical dihydroxyacetone (DHA) to color the skin. This tanning agent will react with your skin’s amino acids to produce that sun-kissed tan you are looking for. Other key ingredients include organic aloe vera, organic jojoba seed oil, algae extract, vitamin E, vitamin D, and hyaluronic acid. These additional natural ingredients will help rejuvenate your skin, soothing and repairing any damage while adding moisture.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of DHA spray tanning booths. The risks of ingesting or inhaling DHA are unknown and it’s recommended that people protect their eyes and hold their breath when being sprayed for their safety.
One tanning session at the Spray di Sole studio costs $65. For more information, please visit SprayDiSole.com.
