spray tan while pregnant? is it ok?

Question: i would like to no if its ok to get a sprat tan while pregnant?? not in a taning bed but just the spray tans?

Answer: The companies that produce spray tanning solution say that it is safe to spray tan while pregnant because DHA, which is the tanning agent in the solution has been proven to be safe.

I, personally do not think so, not because I have any problems with DHA, but because in any given spray tanning solution there can be up to 40 ingredients and many of THOSE are not safe, which is the fact those manufacturers choose to remain silent about.

I have 3 children and I would rather be the ugliest woman on earth for the duration of those 9 months of pregnancy than risk any harm to them through exposing them to possibly toxic substances. Not because I am such a great mother, but because kids take so much energy to raise even when they ARE healthy that I don't even want to think what I would have to go through if there were any problems :-)

The good news is, you don't have to go pale. There are self tanners such as Safe Tan in which every single ingredient has been tested and approved, so you can have your cake and eat it too.

I agree, it's completely safe. I've also used airbrush tanning ( a great home set, btw http://www.salonhive.com/airbrush-tanning-equipment ) when I was pregnant, and I never stopped using it. Wonderful project, and much better than the ones I've seen my friends use!
