History of Sunless
The airbrush tanning industry was conceived on an alluring premise of vanity. Having tannned skin immediately makes you feel pretty and look thin. Movie stars, models and television actors all have that healthy glow that we want.
Historically a suntan was considered a fashion “no no”, but in the 1920′s a sun-kissed body became a huge phenomenon. It is rumored that Coco Chanel is the woman behind this trend. After vacationing in the south of France she came back with a tan. This sent women running for the beach. It had been said by a close friend of her's Prince Jean -Louis de Faucingny- lucigne "I think she may have invented sunbathing".
Oddly enough, DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) was also identified in the 1920′s by German scientists. At the time this was not being tested as a skin colorant but was discovered that when spilled on the skin it turned brown.
In the 1950′s Eva Wittgenstein, from the University of Cincinnati, conducted studies on Dihydroxyacetone, which was used in a drug for Glycogen Storage Disease. Again when spilled on the skin, it turned the skin brown. This intrigued her enough to continue studying DHA and discovered that the browning effect was a consistent result.
In 1960 Coppertone introduced the first ever sunless tanning lotion. ”Quick Tan” or “QT” was sold as a sunless tanner that developed overnight.
In 1973 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added DHA to the list of approved cosmetic ingredients.
The 1980′s proved to be a better decade for the enhancement of sunless tanning products. Changes in formulas and manufacturing processes produced more natural looking results with less streaking and better fading.

How to Fake a Summer Tan
Thre is no doubt having a tan makes you feel thinner, sexier and healthier. However, these days baking in the sun is becoming increasingly unpopular as more women realize the sun's UV rays age skin faster than anything (not to mention increase your chance of developing the deadliest form of skin cancer, melanoma).
If you're ready to skip laying out but don't want to give up glowing skin, self-tanners are a great bet. Self-tanners can darken skin for up to a week thanks to dihydroxyacetone, or DHA.
If you want a flawless, professional application you can get one of many options: Full body exfoliation and professional application of self-tanner, airbrush bronzing (where an aesthetician sprays a fine mist of solution.
