What Makes a Tan Turn Orange?

April 12, 2016



The word Or***e is like a swear-word here at Perth Mobile Spray Tans!! Yet many of you would have seen someone with an awful orange tan and asked yourself why? How does this happen? What is the cause? And why does Perth Mobile Spray Tans spray tans NEVER EVER go orange?


There are a few reasons why a tan might turn orange and it ultimately comes down to the expertise of your tan technician, how well the client follows instructions and the product used as the following reasons show:


1. Too much tanning solution has been applied to the skin
Your tan technician should only be using approximately 50mls per tan. Any more than this is simply wasted and often results in over development as too much solution has been sprayed onto the skin.


2. The product has been left longer on the skin than the recommended time frames.
Whilst there are people who can get away with leaving a tan on the skin longer than the recommended time frame there are a lot who cannot which leads to over development. This is partly down to the Tan Technician imparting these instructions to you, the client, and the client following the instructions given.


3 The DHA level is too high for the client’s skin type.
There is a common misconception that regardless of skin type anyone can obtain that beautiful dark bronzed skin we all seek. Unfortunately this is simply not true! We are completely honest with our clients because realistic expectations = happy customers! Using too high a level of DHA on a very fair person will almost guarantee they turn orange. However if you use the correct level of DHA they will achieve a superior result.


Your spray tan technician from Perth Mobile Spray Tans is highly trained to determine the best product for your skin tone and life-style. So you can rest assured that your tan is guaranteed never to turn Or***e!!
