Can I spray tan while pregnant?

It is generally advisable to consult with your healthcare provider before receiving any beauty treatments, including spray tanning, while pregnant. While there is limited research available on the specific effects of spray tanning during pregnancy, some concerns exist regarding the inhalation of spray tan solutions and potential skin absorption of certain ingredients. The main active ingredient in spray tan solutions is dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which is considered safe for external use. However, the safety of inhaling or absorbing DHA during pregnancy has not been extensively studied. Additionally, some spray tan solutions may contain other ingredients or chemicals that could potentially be of concern during pregnancy. To ensure the health and safety of both you and your baby, it is best to consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice. They can provide guidance based on your individual circumstances and help you make an informed decision.
