BOLD has spray tanned numerous pregnant women at their discretion. Having tan skin makes us feel more sexy and confident, especially when expecting. We feel that as long as it’s done in moderation and the proper precautions are taken to make the process as safe as possible – there shouldn’t be any problems. Since DHA sticks to the top layer of skin and isn’t thought to be absorbed past that, some health care providers just encourage women to just make sure they wait until after their first trimester. The room should always be well ventilated and a facemask should always be worn. If the mom-to-be wants some color on her face I advise just a quick sprits and then fan her face to rid of any lingering overspray. As with anything that is done while pregnant, the expecting mother’s judgment is always the most important. There are no definite conclusions regarding whether spray tanning is or isn’t safe for pregnant women, but If you are at all skeptical about anything, we recommend speaking with your doctor. Tanning beds are not safe for pregnant women because of the intense heat. Raised body temperatures can be very dangerous to a baby as well as too much sun exposure.
