Why Spray Tans are Better Than Self-Tanners

You’ve probably found that some tanners–particularly those who have gone the DIY route–may be skeptical about getting a professionally done airbrush tan. While it’s true that over the counter self-tanning lotions may be cheaper than spray tans, the bottom line is that you get what you pay for. And in the case of OTC lotions, that’s not much.

Self-tanning lotions come in two varieties: bronzers, which color the skin almost immediately after they have been applied and self-tanners, which offer gradual coloring. While bronzers and self-tanners may work differently, the one thing they have in common is that many of them may not work the way manufacturers claim. In other words, consumers take the risk every time they try a self-tanning product.

Each self-tanning lotion type has its own particular set of pros and cons. Bronzers, for example, provide instant results and will come off very easily with some warm soapy water and a little bit of scrubbing. But they have serious problems, such as:

  • the potential to turn very fair skin orange,

  • the inability to look natural on many skin types,

  • a short (usually 24 hour) lifespan.

Self-tanners, on the other hand, produce tans that look much more natural than those produced by bronzers. This is because its main ingredient is DHA (dihydroxyacetone), a naturally-derived substance that interacts with the topmost layer of skin cells to make skin turn brown. Tans achieved in this way last a few days rather than just 24 hours. At the same time, however, they may also:

  • have an orange tone,

  • require regular upkeep to maintain tan quality.

A spray tan–and especially one that uses New Gorgeous products–can last up to ten days or more with a minimum of maintenance. And regardless of whether their skin color is fair, medium or dark, consumers have a New Gorgeous solution that is best suited for their skin. Better still, there’s never a chance that your tan will be ruined by the orange color that wrecks tans produced by bronzers and self-tanners.

Our New Gorgeous solutions use only pharmaceutical grade ingredients and DHA. They’re also PETA-certified and the top choice among models and celebrities the world over. With so much going for them, spray tans offer the best value for the money. And once your potential clients find this out, how could they not not decide to get their tans any other way?
