Spray tanning is a type of sunless tanning that uses a fine mist of solution containing dihydroxyacetone (DHA) to darken the skin. DHA is a sugar-based compound that reacts with the amino acids in the outermost layer of skin, called the stratum corneum, to produce a brown colour. The tan develops within minutes and reaches its full intensity within 24 hours. It typically lasts for 3-7 days.
