Sunless Tan Lotions: Tanning Without The Sun


All the reports about the instances of skin cancer and the free availability of other healthy skin tips have made many fashion-conscious people concerned about too much exposure to the sun. Quite right too.

But does this mean we all have to stay out of the sun and keep a pale complexion? Not necessarily. The availability of sunless tan lotions means that a healthy glow can still be achieved although, despite all the tips for fake tanning available, the reputation of sunless tan lotions streaking and leaving patches mans that many are unsure about their use too.

All is well, however, as science is coming to the rescue of those disillusioned by sunless tan lotions and sunbathing. Products are getting closer that promote the warm glow so many want, but do it from the inside.

Research undertaken at the Massachusetts General Hospital have identified the enzyme that regulates the production of the melanin in the skin and so the control of the skin’s colour. By looking at this enzyme (PDE-4D3) scientists have studied it’s relationship with the cAMP molecule that triggers melanin production in the presence of ultra-violet rays. As yet this is only research and has not yet resulted in a tan enhancing product. It seems only a matter of time before this changes.

See more about this research at the Beverley Hills Skin website.

Why Use Sunless Tan Lotions?



The reasons for using sunless tan lotions seem to be getting more numerous as times goes on.

It seems the heavy tanned look is less popular than it was; we are all starting to understand the harm Ultra Violet rays do to our skin and the drive to look younger longer means many stay out of the sun. Too much exposure means the collagen in the skin is damaged and the skin loses its elasticity, sags and wrinkles.

While those who are that colour naturally look wonderful, people who get a chocolate colour from over exposure to the sun tend to look unhealthy.

The case for sunless tan lotions is also strengthened by recent publicity that reminds us of the dangers of skin cancer. I think we are all aware that the dangerous melanoma growths result from sun damage and sunbeds seem to be just as bad.

Nonetheless, beautiful people tend to have lightly tanned skin although there are many with the English Rose pale look who look wonderful too. Sunless tan lotions give you the choice – you can either use the lotions to get the shade you want without any risk or you can simply stay your natural colour. The decision is yours and we will love you whatever you choose.

Sunless tan lotions have developed over the years and no longer do you have to risk looking orange or streaky. Take a look at the healthy range of sunless tan lotions available and I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Tips For Fake Tanning: Sunless Tanning Supplements

There has recently been some adverse publicity regarding the use of spray sunless tan lotions(perhaps the sunbed manufacturers getting their revenge, who knows?), however the problems have arisen in the US where the regulations are less strict than here in Europe.

Nonetheless, although no real studies show a problem with the use of spray sunless tan lotions, it is probably wise for anyone with doubts to consult a doctor before beginning a course ofsunless tan lotions, particularly sprays and especially if you are pregnant.

If you want to be particularly safe, then it would be best to protect the eyes, lips and nostrils whilst spraying, although this tends to be more relevant to commercial spray tanning booths rather than home aerosol sprays. As ever, common sense should prevail.

If the idea of a tanning spray turns you off then one of the best tips for fake tanning may be to use one of the quality natural tanning supplements available. These use natural nutrients to boost the body’s tanning abilities.

There are supplements already available that enhance the colour of your skin using natural carotenoids and vitamin E without exposing yourself to the sun. However if you do go out into the sun, a good sun supplement will enhance the tanning effect. In any case this product should provide useful amino acids for the body.

Good natural sun supplements encourage the body’s tanning in the sun (remember a high level of sun cream is still necessary). If you do not spend time in the sun then they should simply work as an effective multi-vitamin. This is useful for people with fairer skin as it speeds up the tanning process – but remember it does not prevent damage to the skin caused by excess exposure.

Sunless Tan Lotions: Tanning Injections

With the summer starting to make people think about their tan and so turning to sunless tan lotions, a worrying twist has been reported in the Republic of Ireland.

The Herald.ie website has repeated a warning from the Irish Health and Safety Executive and the Irish Medicines Board about self-injected fake tan injections available online.

Unlike mainstream sunless tan lotions, this injection, sold under the name ‘Melatonan,’ has not been authorised for use in Ireland and indeed there are some reports of nausea, leg pains and fatigue experienced by users of the product. While there have been no official reports of problems, both bodies have issued warnings.

The injection claims to help tanning by increasing the level of the melanin pigment in the skin, as well as suppress appetite and increase libido. It is clearly a wonder product. Or is it?

As with all injections, there is a constant danger of infection and introducing a product not properly tested and approved is risky at best.

Here at BeRavishing.com we would be suspicious of any product that claims to achieve all the things this injection does. We suggest there is no instant way to get that perfect tan – even sunless tan lotions need preparation and correct use to get the best effect.

One of the best tips for fake tanning we can suggest is to use recognised methods – and to please be careful what you buy on the Internet.

Sunless Tan Lotions: Models Avoid Sunbeds

Yet more reasons to use sunless tan lotions to get yourself a deep, brown tan came to light this week.

London Fashion Week is about to begin and (as part of Cancer Research UK’s R UV UGLY? campaign which works to raise awareness of the dangers involved in using sunbeds) the leading British model agencies have joined in a ‘no sunbed’ policy.

With perfectly good sunless tan lotions available, model agencies such as Storm, Elite and Union have agreed to a rule of no sunbed use for all their models.

Cancer Research UK have campaigned to highlight the risk of skin cancer involved in the use of sunbeds and have been instrumental in lobbying for new legislation in England and Wales to prevent under 18s from using sunbeds.

Sarah Doukas of Storm Model Management says, “Supporting this campaign makes perfect sense as the wellbeing of our models is of paramount importance and we take a serious approach to their health.”

Using sunless tan lotions to get the tan you want makes sense, especially when you understand the risks of sunbeds. Using a sunbed before the age of 35 increases the risk of worst kind of skin cancer, malignant melanoma, by 75 per cent.

It is an encouraging sign to see model agencies, which get such a bad press with regard to subjects such as thin models, take such a responsible stance.

My Personal Healthy Skin Tips

 

 
My mother always laughed when I talked to her about the latest beauty product I had found and asked her for tips to beautiful skin. She had always washed with soap and water and had never used any face creams. Right into her eighties, she still had good skin – though obviously she hadn’t worried about trying to stop the wrinkles!
I am not so lucky and my skin gets dry easily. It is also quite sensitive – I learnt the hard way not to use strong soap if I didn’t want a puffy face! I don’t have a complicated skin routine. However, I am in my 50s and have managed to delay too many of the dreaded wrinkles so I assume I am doing something right. My healthy skin tips are simple and nothing we haven’t all heard before. These tips are:

  • Eat well – follow advice about healthy eating and drinking;
  • Protect your skin from the sun all the time, not just when you are sunbathing;
  • If you want a tan, read about tips for fake tanning and use of sunless tan lotions on this website;
  • Cleanse thoroughly with a gentle cleanser – even if you are really tired before you go to bed;
  • Find a moisturiser that suits you and use it;
  • Use a dedicated moisturiser around the eye area and be careful when applying – ‘be gentle’ is the order of the day.

There are no magic solutions and we are all different. However, we do all owe it to ourselves to look after our skin so, if you haven’t done so already, develop a routine that suits you and stick to it.

How The View Of Sunless Tan Lotions Has Changed

How times have changed……..thank goodness!

I can remember classmates using sunless tan lotions when I was at secondary school. They weren’t very skilled at applying the lotion and the end result was usually an uneven orange hue, in the main on their legs.

It was embarrassing for the person who had to turn up for school realising how they looked. And the rest of us were ready to offer them tips for fake tanning. It wasn’t trendy to use sunless tan lotions and they were mostly used by people who weren’t going to be lucky enough to get away for a sun-filled holiday.

Those were the days before we worried about the effects of the sun on our skin. Now, we know about the potential dangers of basking in the sun in order to get a ‘real’ tan. So, those gaining their tan from a bottle can feel quite virtuous. They can also be very grateful that science has moved on and the products themselves are so much more sophisticated. Now, a wide range of people are happy to use them. We don’t know how many people in the public eye have used sunless tan lotions so they can look tanned all year round.

For some reason, there seems to be a general view that tanned skin looks good. It’s great that we now have easy access to products that will enable us to achieve the look we want without damaging our health.

Sunless Tan Lotions: Using Fake Tan Products

 

 
The best sunless tan lotions when used properly completely remove the need to expose yourself to harmful the ultra-violet rays of the sun. It could be said that such lotions are thus a timesaver, money saver and health saver.

You no longer have to spend large amounts of money travelling around the world to find the sun, nor do you then have to spend hours lying in the sun. Of course many of us enjoy doing so but sunless tan lotions remove the need if we just want the tan without the long periods of sunbathing.

Tanning lotions work by triggering the production of melanin, the natural substance that enables the darkening of the skins pigment. This is achieved without the risks of melanoma or skin cancer.

Some of the better sunless tan lotions and all natural cosmetics further help your skin health by containing a sunblock to prevent sunburn.

A sign of a good quality tanning lotion is also the inclusion of a moisturiser. Environmental factors can dry out the skin, even without the influence of the sun but add in the ultra violet rays from the sun, and the problem is exacerbated. Sun worshippers frequently suffer from flaky and cracked skin leading to premature ageing.

Taking the risks of staying too long in the sun together with the benefits of using quality tanning lotions, it is difficult to see why anyone would use anything other than a good fake tan product to get a brown skin.

Sunless Tan Lotions: Take Time On Your Sunless Tan

 

 

Any beauty regime is worth taking time over to get it just right and sunless tan lotions are just the same.

We feel a lot better about ourselves when we look good and many people think having a glowing, healthy tan helps. The retailer Superdrug found from research recently that 71% of British women feel a good tan makes them more confident. This means that, with the concern about the damage ultra-violet rays do to the skin, finding and applying the right sunless tan lotions is more important than ever.

One of the tips for fake tanning is to consider what level of tan you want. A deep, heavy tan does not suit many people and indeed looks silly on many. The key is to have a glow that is two shades darker than your normal skin colour. This will make you look healthy without looking fake. Let’s face it; a light glow looks much healthier than a leather-coloured skin.

Another of the tips for fake tanning is to take time and prepare in advance. Remove any body hair the day before or the sunless tan lotion will enter open pores left from shaving or waxing. Equally, exfoliate before applying sunless tan lotions to remove any dead cells that might prevent the lotion’s absorption.

Find more tips on using sunless tan lotions on the Northampton Chronicle website.
