What Is Spray Tanning?

How to Choose A Spray Tan Machine?
It depends on your requirement and budget. Self-tanning at home is always an affordable way. But there is still some factors to consider: choose LVLP or HVLP? Ergonomic, over spray feature and versatility.
LVHP or HVLP?
First of all, I will explain what the difference between LVHP and HVLP. LVHP means low volume high pressure, while the HVLP means high volume low pressure.
“HVLP spray technology is defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and a spray paint rate of at least 65% is considered to reduce paint waste. In addition, the maximum pressure at the air cap is 0.7bar/10psi to avoid overspray caused by similar traditional spray guns and pollute the environment. HVLP means high flow-low pressure, to be precise, HV means high flow of air out of the air cap; LP means low air pressure at the atomizing cap of the spray gun. HVLP guns use 0.7bar pressure instead of 3.5bar at the air cap of traditional air guns. Traditional old spray gun, using 3.5bar atomizing pressure, makes the paint in the air as much as the paint on the workpiece.”
LVHP is usually used when painting and spray paint the wall because its larger spray range.
Choosing HVLP spray tan machine will either spray the tanning solution evenly on your skin or decrease the waste of solution when spraying. So the HVLP spray tan kits is the best machine for tanning.
Choose ergonomic spray tan machine means you will experience less fatigue. Consider a lighter and ergonomic hold spray gun to enjoy a wonderful tanning experience. The solution cap screw on the spray gun, so you must add the weight of solution you spend per use. In general, you will need approximately 2 ounces tanning solution for full body coverage whether you are a little bit heavier or thinner. These ergonomic spray tan machines have been designed with ease of use, slightly pull the spray trigger and you will see the evenly mist spray on your skin and show healthy bronze color.
For beauties, overspray may waste tanning solution and the time of spray. Not only it may it is going to make the tanning not evenly but you have to clean it up once you finished in case the tanning solution dry out. To reduce this issue, HLVP spray tanning machine will be your best choice.
The benefits of sunless tanning
Improved appearance, enhanced mood, and increased vitamin D levels have been attributed to tanning. What’s more, sunless tanning helps to form better sun protection habits.
“Tanning is primarily achieved through the overexposure of skin to UV radiation and is most prevalent among lighter skinned populations. In these populations, UV tanning may not offer any benefit over moderate sun exposure to offset elevated skin cancer and photoaging risk. Sun exposure should not be used as an alternative but as an adjunct to a diet fortified with vitamin D. Sunless tanning products may serve as a sensible, safer alternative for those who desire tanned skin.” Dermatol Clin said, “An alternative to UV tanning is sunless tanning. Currently marketed sunless tanning agents include spray-on tans and sunless tanning lotions. These products contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which reacts with the amino groups in the stratum corneum to stain the skin brown.”
Sun exposure is beneficial in moderation, but can be harmful in excess. If you are looking for long term tanning effect, you can apply sunscreen and physical sunscreen before you expose yourself to the sun. Do not make sun exposure for more than 2 hours continuously.
