Question Will Spray Tan make my skin look orange?
AnswerNO! Giving our clients natural-looking skin complexions is our primary concern! Our solutions have been carefully designed with olive undertones to give you that perfect natural-looking glow. Valiente specialists are trained to choose the ideal intensity for your skin. Rest assured, you will never look orange!
Question How long do results last?
AnswerOn average, spray tan results last about 10 days. However, the longevity depends on several factors, which include lifestyle habits, daily activities, and skin routines. Sweating excessively while sleeping or spending time in jacuzzis or saunas, taking long baths or showers on a daily basis, participating in activities that may cause excessive sweating (ex: spinning), exfoliation, hair removal, or even a lack of skin hydration may cause the product to fade away faster. Follow the maintenance tips and instructions given to you by your Valiente specialist to maximize your results.
Question How does Spray Tanning work?
AnswerSpray tanning temporarily colors the skin. The active ingredient that creates the bronzed effect is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). DHA is approved by Health Canada and is derived from sugar cane or beet root. This ingredient interacts with the proteins and amino acids found in the top layer of the skin to create the desired tanned color. DHA is the primary ingredient found in all spray tanning solutions and self-tanning products.
Question What are the benefits of Valiente Spray Tanning compared to tanning beds?
AnswerIn addition to obtaining an instant result, you avoid all of the harmful effects that could result from UV ray exposure in tanning beds. Limiting your exposure to such harmful effects you are reducing your risk of developing skin cancer and avoiding the premature aging of your skin.

Question Is Spray Tanning safe for pregnant women?
AnswerValiente solutionsΒ are non-toxic and there is no evidence that demonstrates the harmfulness of DHA. DHA is approved by Health Canada and acts only on the top layer of the skin. However, each pregnancy is different and we strongly recommend consulting your doctor before making an appointment.

Question How long should I wait before taking my first shower after the session?
AnswerIt is recommended to avoid contact with any liquids for at least 8 to 12 hours following the application. Premature exposure to fluids may prevent the NUDA solution from working its magic.
Question As I took my first shower, it looked as though the solution was dripping off my skin. Why?
AnswerValiente solutions contain accelerators (bronzers) that give you an instant glow, while the remainder of the solution seeps into your skin gradually. These accelerators are temporary and will disappear as you take your first shower following the spray tan session.
Question Can I use a moisturizer or hydrating lotion after my session?
AnswerHydrating your skin is the key to maintaining your spray tan. Our solution contains moisturizing agents that will keep your skin hydrated until your first shower. After your first shower, you should apply a hydrating lotion every day to maximize the solution’s longevity. Be sure to use a lotion that does not contain mineral oils and / or petroleum, as these ingredients can cause the solution to fade away prematurely.
Question When I’m travelling, is there anything that I can or should do to maximize the spray tanning results?
AnswerWe recommend that you avoid jacuzzis and opt for the pool instead. We also recommend applying a water-resistant sunscreen spray. When drying off, use your towel to gently sponge the water off your skin and be sure to apply a suitable moisturizer before going to bed.
