Professional Sienna X spray tan in Exeter

Sienna X is this year's official tanning brand for the Strictly Come Dancing team. So if you want to get that "Strictly" look, call Rapunzels (South West) Ltd in Exeter today.

How Sienna X tanning works:

The skin is made up of two main layers: the epidermis and dermis. The outer layer, the epidermis, is where self-tanning occurs. The stratum corneum (horny layer) is the outermost layer of the epidermis - it is this layer that is affected by most sunless-tanning products.
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is the main active ingredient in self-tanning products. It does not give you a real tan with protective melanin but it can create the appearance by browning the skin.
The action of DHA is limited to the upper layers of the skin and involves a reaction between DHA, skin proteins and oxygen. The sugar in the DHA reacts with the amino acids on our skin and oxygen, turning our skin brown. The solution needs to be kept on for at least 8 hours for a full reaction. A good example is: if you take a bite out of an apple and leave it exposed to air for a few hours, it starts to turn brown. Sunless tanning works in a similar way on skin.

How long will Sienna X tanning last?

The tan can last between 5-7 days (dependent on client lifestyle) and post tan maintenance.  However, this can be extended by using our award-winning Sienna X retail range with products to suit most lifestyles.  The face and hands will be the first to fade as you will wash these more often. This can be topped up with express tanning mist, our 'self-tan in a can' retail product.

All Sienna X tanning products are alcohol & paraben free

Parabens are synthetic chemicals that are used as preservatives in the cosmetic industry.  In the news, they are the subject of hot debate as to their safety. 

  *Remember that a sunless 'tan' is not really a sun tan and offers no protection whatsoever against the damage the sun may cause.  Always wear oil free sunscreen to ensure longevity of your Sienna X sunless tan. *
