Sunless tanning colors the skin without UV exposure. The main ingredient that colors the skin is DHA. DHA is a simple sugar derived from sugarcane and sugar beets. DHA binds to the first layer of skin and to the protein that is responsible for skin coloration, typically lasting 5-7 days.

To optimize your sunless tan, exfoliation is important to remove loose/dead skin from the surface of the skin. This process allows the sunless product to be applied to the freshest layer of skin allowing for an even application and prolonging the tan. Heavy exfoliation strips the skin of its essential oils and amino acids. It is important to gently polish the skin to remove loose, dead skin cells and do so 24 hours before your custom spray tan. This gives your skin time to replenish itself and create a darker, longer lasting sunless tan.

The sunless color fades as the dead skin cells flake off, typically within a 5-7 day period, depending on the individual and proper skin maintenance. Prolonged water submersion, swimming in pools, or heavy sweating can lighten the tan by accelerating the shedding process.
