    Spray tan "blobs"

    They are areas of dry skin rather like age spots (no offence to your mum). They look skin-coloured but when you put the tan on they go darker. Ask your mum to have a really good scrub before her tan, particularly these areas, and put a bit of moisturiser on them.

    DIY tanning booths, anyone made one?

    A few years ago a company made blow-up tanning tents. No idea how good they were, would be interested to hear from someone who had one.

    Help, green tanning lotion!

    All I can tell you is that our DHA comes from high quality sugar cane rather than low-grade glycerine. Our tan has been certified by the Organic Food Chain in Australia who have the highest safety standards in the world.

    Concerns over spray tanning and health

    There are several problems with this article. Firstly, they say that tanning with DHA is relatively new. That’s not the case, as it’s been used since the 1960s to colour skin. Secondly, they say that DHA comes from glycerin. It’s true, some does, but not all. The DHA we use in our tan comes...
