Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

I have tried everything, but the day or so after spray tanning (airbrushing or booth), both me and my clients feel like we stink. As in a body odor smell. What gives? Any way to avoid this? Its like your regular odor but stronger....even deoderant can't mask it completely.

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

What solution are you using? I have never had this as an issue and I use Norvell. I have tried South Seas and it does have a slightly stronger odor. I have never smelled a thing with either of them after the first shower. Before the first shower there is a slight odor of DHA with Norvell but very slight. After using the South Seas my friend said she smelled like bong water (lol) before the first shower. With Norvell, I have never had anyone complain of the odor, I have heard many times that people are surprised at how there is not a lingering smell.

I use Sjolie exclusively and I never had anyone complain about the odor.

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

Everybody is different some smell some dont. Some will one time, not the next. Its the nature of the tanning process and interaction of ingredents at the skin level. Same smell as in the tanning booths. People are pretty tolerant of it. Not really an issue for most.

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

LOL. I can't believe that you all have never heard people ever say that!?!?! Its not the odor of the SOLUTION that Im talking about, its your OWN body odor that seems to be stronger after tanning. I warned my clients about this, but so far, none have complained of smell, except one friend. I mean, I know this is gross, but I always feel like I smell of BO (like my armpits) the day of and day after tanning. Maybe I just need to wear more deoderant! Sorry, but I figured it was a common problem, but I guess it doesn't happen to all people. I use the 'Awaken" Line by Artisan Tan. Everyone comments that is smells nice right after you put it on!

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

I use the heavy duty (i think it says prescription strength) deodorant from Target/Wal-Mart etc. that Secret makes. I have been really happy with it. My armpits stay super dry for days (even with showering) and I don't notice a BO smell ever anymore (unless I forget to reapply after being sprayed). I just put on once a day in the a.m. Hope that helps!

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

Ok great! It must be that maybe the process makes people sweat more or something?? My only friend who said she smelled after uses like "natural" deoderant, which means its probably not strong enough to mask it. Thanks for the tip! Im not a big sweater and therefore not a big deoderant wearer which is why I notice myself stinking. I will look today for that stuff in Target and hopefully reccomend it to people who complain of stink. I really don't think its the solution, b/c everyone says how nice it smells.

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

BTW, DHA does have an odor to it, and that is what you are most likely smelling...it's usually just a slight odor, but it may seem stronger in some body chemistries than others. But this morning I looked, and it's actually Secret "clinical strength" not prescription....I think mine is fresh scent. Kinda spendy stuff for deodorant, comparatively speaking, but it works great, and doesn't have alcohol in it, so it won't make your pits strangely white by removing any overspray that hits them....

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

I have used several different solutions and tested tons of them. Every single one makes me stink for a day or 2. It's disgusting...it's my main complaint about tanning. Many of my clients complain of the same thing...no matter what solution I may be using at the time. You are right....it's like a bad bo ....grooosss! Last time I had my coworker spray me I told her to avoid my armpits but she didn't do a good job of that. I am going to try not spraying the pits and see what happens.

Re: Why does Spray Tan Solution Make People Stink?

I guess Im going to have to go that route too. Strong deoderant and maybe not spray the pit area so much. Im glad someone is validating me on this b/c I was getting pretty worried that I was just a stinky person! LOL
