It would seem that we are supposed to remain pale throughout our lives, as tanning safely apparently isn't an option.
Scientists have warned that spray tans may creat serious Health problems including cancer.
They warned that the main ingredient could potentiallu be harmful if inhaled.
The substance - known as dihydroxyacetone, or DHA - enters the lungs and is then absorbed into the blood stream where it could damage DNA and cause tumours.
This comes as a huge blow to most women who have sought after using spray tans as a safe option oppsed to harmful radiation caused by sunbeds.
Scientists claim that the chemical may make asthma worse, as well as other lung problems such as emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Dr Lynn Goldman, dead on the School of Public Health and Health Services at George Washington University in Washington DC, said:
"The substance seems to have a potential for what they call creating mutations or changing DNA in living cells, which is a serious problem and needs to further investigated, yet hasn't been.
"What were concerned about is not so much that reaction that creates the tanning, but reaction that may occur deeper down with living cells that might then change DNA, causing a mutation and what the possible impacts of that might be.
"I'd be very concerned for the potential of lung Cancer."
Although spray tans have been approved for use in Britain and the US for rubbing into the Skin, there were no inhalation tests.
The latest concerns were uncovered by American television braodcasted ABC News.
