If you live in beautiful Sacramento, you know there’s plenty of California sun out here to enjoy. It makes for beautiful weather, but it isn’t always the best way to get your summer tan. Whether you need a faster way to add some color into your busy life or you just want a tanning solution that is healthy and safe for your skin, sunless tanning is the option for you. Lilly’s Spa offers airbrush tanning to give you the expertly applied color and glow that you have always wanted. Read on to learn more about the benefits of sunless tanning and call Lilly’s Spa today to make your appointment!

The Dangers of Traditional Tanning

The color you can achieve naturally by spending time in the sun – or artificially by spending time in a tanning bed – is your skin’s reaction to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Your body produces melanin to protect your skin from these UV rays, darkening your skin. While a sun-kissed glow has become the signature of summer beauty, it’s actually a defensive measure created by your body to prevent the dangerous effects of UV exposure, which, at best, can include skin damage, spots, and wrinkles. At worst, UV exposure can lead to painful sunburns and then permanent problems like damage to your DNA. Teenagers and young adults in particular are at high risk for melanoma, a prevalent and dangerous form of skin cancer, which is why organizations like the Center for Disease Control and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration support rules restricting the use of tanning beds to adults.

Healthy and Safe

One of the strongest arguments for sunless tanning is the fact that it is far safer and healthier than either tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed. There are no UV rays involved in sunless tanning. Instead, spray tan solutions utilize components like DHA (dihydrocyacetone) – which is FDA-approved – to change the color of the outer layer of your skin. The dangers of UV exposure, like skin damage and cancer risk, don’t exist with spray tanning.


Because spray tan solutions are applied with a compressor and an airbrush, you have far more control over the end result. You can only hope for an even tan when you choose the methods of lying in the sun or in a tanning bed, but sunless tanning offers a solution tailor-made to your preferences. You can customize the color and tone you want, and our professionals will ensure that the solution is applied smoothly all over your body for an even tan. The airbrush techniques we use at Lilly’s Spa offer even more precision than ordinary spray guns. If you are new to spray tanning, it may take some time to find the perfect settings, but we are ready to work with you to help you achieve the look you’ve always wanted.

Easy, Fast, and Clean

Sunless tanning is a great option not only because it is safe and effective, but also because it is a fast and simple process. The solution drys quickly on your skin and offers results without the mess of sunscreen, tanning oil, or self-tanning lotion. It is also much more sanitary than lying in a tanning bed that hundreds of other mostly-naked people have also used.
