Comprehensive Guide to Safe Sunless Tanning

Sunless Self-tanning is the most harmless and chic way to look bronzed and glowing all year round without risking your health or your skin. Here is a comprehensive guide to safe sunless tanning.

Ask any beautician, beauty editor or writer, and they will tell you that the key to great self-tan is preparation and more preparation.

Firstly, know your skin colour, be honest, are you naturally fair? Are you naturally olive-toned? Do you burn easily? You need to use a tanning product formulated for your skin type and natural tone – to avoid the ‘orange’ look. Lots of ranges have great shades and formulations for fair skin and have specially formulated self-tan for all skin types from English Rose to Olive, so make sure you choose a tan to match your own skin to keep your glow looking natural.

The best way to tan is to put on the tanning lotion in the evening under some loose, old pyjamas or lounge clothes and then to leave your tan on all night, showering off in the morning. This way your tan can develop as long as possible whilst you sleep without being accidentally rubbed or washed off and it won’t sweat off onto your clothes during a hot day in the office.

Exfoliate. Self-tanning lotions grab on to dry skin wherever it is, leaving dark and uneven patches and streaks, so scrub well, paying particular attention to any dry areas, particularly knees, elbows, and feet. You should as well shave or wax your legs in advance and rinse them off with cold water.

Moisturise with a water based lotion, this will soak in and allow your tanning lotion to penetrate. An oil based lotion will keep your self-tan sitting on the surface and it won’t give you the best result. Pay special attention to knees, heels, feet and elbows as this should prevent any dry skin from turning into dark unsightly patches.

It’s advisable to use a tanning mitt, these sponge mitts ensure that you get even coverage with your tanning lotion and they also stop the self-tan from soaking into your hands and leaving you with messy, patchy, brown paws. You can also use a homemade alternative; you will need a pair of rubber gloves and an old pair of (clean) socks. After slipping the socks over the rubber gloves, you can put your tan on without streaks and without staining your hands. This method is perfect for tanning emergencies and also works equally well for instant tanning.

This can lead to premature wrinkles and other aging effects.

All You Want To Know About Melatonin

The Benefits of exposure to the sun are often overlooked and should not be discounted or forgotten. Melatonin, for instance, which is synthesized by your pineal gland, is profoundly affected by light and dark, and proper exposure to the sun’s bright light during the day is critical for maintaining your inner rhythm

Melatonin, as I mentioned earlier, is also a potent antioxidant with cancer-fighting properties, so do not underestimate the value of daily UV exposure. According to The World Health Organizations Fact Sheet N 305 “Small amounts of UV radiation are beneficial to health, and play an essential role in the production of vitamin D.”

Little known benefits of exposure to our sun:

  • Enhancing mood and energy through the release of endorphins
  • Protecting against and suppressing symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Inducing nitric oxide (NO), which helps protect your skin against UV damage and offers cardiovascular protection, promotes wound healing through its antimicrobial effect, and has some anti-cancer activity
  • Curing skin diseases, such as psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and scleroderma. UV radiation also enhances skin barrier functions

However, excessive exposure of your skin to ultraviolet is associated with different types of skin cancer, sunburn, accelerated skin aging, cataracts and other eye diseases. It has been proven that constant exposure to sunlight ultraviolet rays reduces the efficiency of the immune system. The harsh ultraviolet rays of the sun are one of the worst enemies the human skin could have. The origin of ninety percent of the skin cancers suffered by people are caused by sun exposure.
Negative Effects On The Skin
Excessive UV exposure results in some chronic and negative skin changes.

Cutaneous malignant melanoma: a life-threatening malignant skin cancer.
Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin: a fatal cancer, which generally attacks less rapidly than melanoma and could less likely cause the demise of its victims.
Basal cell carcinoma of the skin: a fast-growing skin cancer occurring more predominantly in older adults.

Photoageing: a loss of skin tightness and the development of solar keratoses.
Synchronizing important biorhythms through sunlight entering your eye and striking your retinaThis is why it is highly recommended to take safety measures each time you go out of the house, use sunscreen whenever it is sunny and limit the time you stay in the sun as much as possible. This way you can limit the side effects you could experience because of the sun. Protecting your skin from the invasive sun rays means protecting your health, so do not overlook this aspect when getting out of the house.

The Benefits of Mobile Tanning

For years, many of us took advantage of quick sunless tanning by hitting our local salon during our lunch hours or after work. While we would gladly use part of our weekends for ensuring a healthy glow year round, ideally, we tried to make time during the week. Now, however, with the latest advances, mobile tanning has become a perfect solution for those whose time is pressed but do not want to sacrifice the look of a healthy and beautiful complexion.

For quite some time, mobile tanning firms have been a force to be reckoned with in the beauty and health industry, they have developed and redefined the way the provide their services to the loyal and consistent clients.

It is a safe alternative to hours spent under the hot sun (and let us be honest: are any of us even risking the dangers that come with those many hours dedicated to the beach in a quest for the perfect tan?). And maybe the best part is the affordability of mobile beauty. A mainstay on the pageant circuits and the boardrooms, airbrush tanning has arrived, and it is here to stay. Most mobile tanning companies offer package deals for tanning parties, and of course, traditional tanning packages are usually always an option. You may even be offered a significant discount if you host a mobile tanning party in your home. If it is a win-win for both you and the mobile tanning company, then all the better.

Perfect Tan or Not!

A golden shiny brown tanned set of limbs is one of the things the stylish young and fashion curious lady or guy will always wish for. The chase of that bronzed, sun-touched look has successfully led to a multitude of sun lovers in bikinis, bare chests and board shorts gathering at the beach, knowing little or nothing about the dangers or disadvantages related to spending too much time under the sun.

Many youths are fun loving, adventurous and passionate about outdoors and sports, and this may just let them overlook the importance of adequate sun protection. While a lot of outdoor sports like wakeboarding, soccer, windsurfing, etc. are very beneficial to health, the exposure to the intense rays of the sun should also be checked.

Sun Burn
The sun releases three different types of ultraviolet (UV) rays including UVC, UVB and the UVA. But the only rays that reach the earth surface are Uvb and Uva because the UVC is eventually separated by the ozone layer before it reaches the ground.

The UVA enters deep into the skin and commences the release of melanin, which is a pigment in your body that allows your skin to tan. UVB effectively attacks the outer skin layer and burns the skin.

The UV rays are believed by many to be the cause of chronic photoaging: which is a cluster of skin conditions like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sagging skin and even Skin Cancer.

Sunburn is just a short-term damage caused by sun exposure. Its symptoms include redness of the skin, pain to the redness and even swelling of the affected areas and in some critical cases, blisters will occur.

Constant sunburns have been linked to the increased risks of obtaining skin cancers. Following are the three common forms of skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), malignant melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).

Most of the BCC and SCC cases I’ve witnessed were caused by severe exposure to sunlight. The ugly tumors appear mostly on the sun exposed spots like the hands, face, shoulders and back. SCC tumors fleshy and irregular growths that could enlarge and break down into ulcers.

While the BCC tumors are usually pigmented and shiny with raised borders. The SCF (Skin Cancer Foundation) New York, USA, says that some 200000 to 900000 Americans suffer SCC and BCC yearly.

The Malignant melanoma is a cancer of the pigments of the skin cells. It might form on one existing moles, where pigmentation is concentrated heavily. The tumors are often seen as thick, large and colored (blue, red or black) patches that rapidly grow with irregular outlines. The Skin Care Foundation (SCF) estimates that up to 51000 new cases of malignant melanoma are reported every year in the United States of America.

Shade the Sun
The knowledge of sun exposure dangers is paramount, knowing how to minimize risks if sunburn is even more essential. Techniques to reduce damage from sun rays can be divided into those to do with behavior and those to do with fabrics.

Sun lovers should refrain from carrying out high-risk activities between 10 am to 4 pm when the sun rays are most intense. In summary, please try to stay in the shade while going about your daily routines.

Wears that are sun protective have tight weaves and are light colored. To test for the tight weave characteristic, hold the fabric about 7 to 6 inches from your eyes and towards a light ray. If the visible light rays can pass through holes between the threads, then so can UV rays. Dark colored fabrics will absorb dangerous UV rays faster than the light colored Wears. Therefore they protect the skin more effectively.

In order to shield the face from unwanted sunburns, high SPF sunscreens are required, most likely the ones with at least SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 20. Some recommended brands are LA Roche-Posay, Sunkiller, and Coppertone.
