Spray tanning = cancer (apparently)

We live in a world where everything gives us cancer.

Smoking, sunbaking, soft drink, Tim Tams – just to name a few.

But now it seems not only will baking in the sun ruin your body, but so will tanning from a can.


According to a study from the University of Pennsylvania spray tanning is bad bad BAD. The DHA (short for dihydroxyacetone – ingredient that darkens skin) that is in spray tans should not be inhaled or digested. Apparently, the DHA in ‘tanning’ booths as an all-over spray hasn’t even been approved as safe. Yeah, awesome.
Agencies recommend people getting spray tans request something to cover their eyes and prevent inhalation.

Some websites are saying to stay pale, but I say ditch the spray and move back to the creams. At least they don’t give us cancer yet.
