The better you feel about yourself, the more you will look after your health in other ways, and the more confident you will feel with others. When we live a healthy lifestyle, we seem physically and mentally prepared to take on more challenges, conquer our goals and dreams and live with a new zest for life. Feeling great physically is your greatest reward from NO FRYE ZONE!!!

How DHA Gives A Tan That Is Much Safer Than The Sun

The misconceptions about DHA, why people turn ORANGE and why people turn orange in the spray booth. Let’s first talk about spray tanning booths why people turn orange and why it is better to get an airbrush tan from a tanning technician.

The reason is in the tanning booths that spay the spray comes out at one level of spray and people with a fairer complexion will turn orange because the spray is not controlled.

The reason why your hands and feet and elbows turn ORANGE in a tanning booth is because of the one level of spray If a professional airbrush technician sprays the client then it is controlled so that the spray level is adjusted to the person’s complexion. People with a darker skin tone can have the spray come out at stronger spray level verses a fairer complexion client.

The standard DHA level in almost all the tanning solution is 9% so a fairer person can have a airbrush tan if they have a technician spray them so it is controlled and they won’t turn orange.

Now let’s talk about another way a person can turn orange. The person will only turn orange if the technician is not trained properly to spray. IF they aren’t trained properly then they may over spray the client in some areas and turn them orange. So it is not the product that turns you orange it is the technician and the spray booths. So please visit one of our technicians for the look you want and love.

Facts About DHA

  • DHA is the active tanning ingredient in spray tan solution. It is what gives you the tan.
  • DHA is a perfectly safe element as long as it is used externally
  • When used properly, DHA is safe for almost everyone, including people who have sensitive skin or asthma
  • DHA is a naturally-occurring substance commonly derived from sugar cane that bronzes skin by interacting with dead skin cells
  • Because it works at a surface level, DHA does not get absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • A common misconception is that the solution brand is responsible for a person turning orange. Although in a rare case this could be true from a poor quality solution, the reality is the technician error is what creates ORANGE.
DHA Facts

Tanning Beds vs. Airbrush

Are Tanning Beds Actually Bad For You?

YES! No matter what you may hear at tanning salons, the cumulative damage caused by UV radiation can lead to premature skin aging (wrinkles, lax skin, brown spots, and more), as well as skin cancer. In fact, indoor ultraviolet (UV) tanners are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma than those who have never tanned indoors.

A tan, whether you get it on the beach, in a bed, or through incidental exposure, is bad news, any way you acquire it. Tans are caused by harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning lamps, and if you have one, you’ve sustained skin cell damage.

The Facts About UV Radiation

the good, the bad & the ugly

Sunless Tanning

With NO FRYE ZONE Airbrush Tanning, you can achieve a deep dark tan without the harmful effects of UV radiation! But, remember, Aruba Tan DOES NOT contain any sunscreen, so use proper sunscreen care when you go out in the sun. The reason Aruba Tan does not have sunscreen is that the protection in any sun block will at most last 12 hours.

Since Aruba Tan Airbrush Tans lasts for 5-7 days (up to 10 for some people), adding SPF to our formula would not provide any protection for the entire life of your tan and could be misleading. Always wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun.

Did You Know?

  • Just one bad blistering sunburn early in life can actually double the risk of skin cancer later in life.
  • The sun causes 80% of premature skin aging, making sun protection and avoiding exposure some of the best defenses against wrinkles.
  • Skin cancer is the most commonly occurring form of cancer in the U.S.
  • The National Cancer Institute estimates that 40 to 50 percent of Americans who live to age 65 will have at least one episode of skin cancer. Most skin cancer is diagnosed after age 50.
  • Skin reactions can happen when sunlight interacts with certain chemicals or medications. Certain antibiotics, colognes and perfumes can cause irritation or cause your skin to become sensitive to the sun.
  • Sun burning just once in your life can cause irreparable skin damage.
