To be or not to be ORANGE!
So one question that is on most minds of those who are interested in getting a sunless tan is...."will I turn Orange?"
The reasons for this happening are several and should be considered when getting a sunless tan from a salon or mobile service.
1. How much is applied to your skin~ To much DHA on anyone's skin can turn it orange because the skin can only absorb so much of what is put on it. So for those booth's or Technicians that spray heavy beware that it may happen especially if your fair.
2. Old solution~ some companies buy in BIG bulk to save $$ on S/H and the overall cost of the solution. Well unless your spraying hundreds of clients in a week or more then the solution will get old. Proper storage is a must as well, I use Organic & Natural solutions so I store mine in the fridge since they don't have Parabens to give them extra shelf life.
3. Using to high % of DHA~ For most clients they want realistic results that look pretty and will fade good too. When you are sprayed with a higher % of DHA than you really should be the possibilities of you turning Orange go WAY up. So if you tell the Tech make me as dark as you can and your fair and burn easily...and they LISTEN to you, you most likely will be orange.
So keep that in mind when you schedule a session with anyone, ask a few questions about how its applied and how fresh the solutions are and finally how much experience the Tech has...check out reviews first is a good thing!

Does it apply whether you have a dark or white skin? Because some people who turned orange have lighter skin.

I think that you can turn orange ish looking on light or dark skin tones, to much DHA will do that or going to dark for your skin. IT will look much more obvious though with lighter complexions for sure! ;)

If you want to achieve your wanted skin color, be careful in choosing salon or mobile service. It depends to them on how they take care of your skin. So if you want to get tan just follow this simple advice, or else you get orange skin. :)

Wonderful information you got here, anyway this information could have gotten way better and much applicable if you have provided a more specific dozage of tanning spray to apply all over the skin to get the perfect output, of course it should depend on your skin tone. Even so, an approximation should be enough, anyways could you post more information.
