Tan Fact: Many tanners choose to combine sunless spray tanning with sunbed tanning–a method called cocktail tanning. Learn how cocktail tanning helps produce a deeper, darker tan.
With sunless tanning, you get natural-looking results perfectly matched to your skin tone with just one visit. It’s important to note: a sunless spray tan is a completely cosmetic tan and does not provide protection from the sun’s rays.
