How does spray tanning work?

Spray tannning is an alternative to a natural sun tan or a tanning bed both of which can cause skin cancer.

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is the chemical most commonly used in spray tanning solutions. Dihydroxyacetone is approved for external application to the body for the purpose of "colouring" the body. Colour addititives, including dihydroxyacetone, may contain one to three dihydroxy additives and two propanone additives or colour mixtures.

Spray tanning solutions contain a chemical that changes the color, staining the dead skin cells that exist in the outer layer of skin and making them appear tanned.
The colour lasts until all the dead cells are shed from your body. Either exfoliating or washing your skin vigorously may cause the skin cells to shed faster, shortening the life of the spray tan.
