If you go to any drug store or even perform a search online, you will come across literally thousands of products that claim to be able to provide you with a natural looking sun-kissed glow. These products tend to vary in nature – some are topical, and others require consumption. Depending on which type of product you choose the method of application and use will differ.
With the dangers of exposure to the sun’s rays, more and more people are turning to sunless tanning products to fulfill their tanning needs. There are several benefits for doing this, and with the numerous products on the market today, it’s even easier to get that perfect tan. Long gone are the days you would sit outside and bake under the sun. Now you can have an instant tan in minutes. Here are some benefits of tanning with a bottle or can compared to tanning outside in the sun.
• With sunless tanning methods, you don’t have to worry about causing skin damage. The sun’s ultraviolet rays not only change your pigment, but it also damages your skin’s cells via prolonged exposure. This can lead to premature wrinkles and other aging effects. Sunless tanning, on the other hand, is done without the exposure to the UV rays and the use of tanning beds, this means no damage to your skin yet you still get the beauty of having tanned skin.
• You can achieve the tanned look you want – and even make your skin darker by applying more products – in as little as one application. This saves you from sitting in the sun for hours or having to tan on several different occasions to get the look you want.
• You no longer have to worry about that dreaded orange skin that was as a result of many early products on the market. Instead, now you can have a natural looking bronze glow that makes it appear as though you took the time to sit in the sun, the secret is yours.
• Sunless tanning products are widely available. From using creams, lotions, gels that you find in any department store, to the spray tan that many tanning salons offer, you have your choice of products or methods to choose from.
The sunless tanning market is only projected to grow as it offers safer alternatives. As with any skin care regimen, you should always do your research about the products you choose to use to avoid any adverse reactions.
