The History of Spray TanningBy Kristle Jones, eHow Contributor
The need for faux tans in film and television is what started the spray tanning craze. Soon spray tans became popular at tanning salons everywhere. Spray tans, which are made up of ingredients like DHA that react with your skin to create a darkening effect, continue to be popular because of the risks associated with traditional tanning methods.
Au Courant is a spray tan brand that "revolutionized the first instant tinted spray tan solution, many years before the advent of airbrush tanning and spray tanning booths," according to the company. Au Courant was developed for film and television before spray tanning went mainstream.
