SUN EXPOSURE VS SELF TANNING
When it comes to fake tan Self Made Tanning really has no competition! Find out how sunless tanning is the best option when it comes to keeping your skin in top condition.
With the hot summer weather on the way, sunbathing can become very tempting. We all love the healthy glow of sun-kissed skin, but is it really healthy and what are the risks of getting a sun tan?
Occasional and moderate sun exposure does have some health benefits for your overall health, so it is important not to be too worried about venturing out on a sunny day. For example, the body produces vitamin D during short exposures to the sun as it doesn’t obtain much from diet alone. However, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun can be very damaging to the health of your skin.
Your natural tone of skin and genetic factors will determine how easily you tan or burn in the sun. But regardless of your natural colour, exposing your skin to radiation from the sun causes skin damage which can lead to premature ageing and even skin cancer in certain cases causing irreversible damage!
The Harmful effects of the Sun:
- Sun Damage to the Eyes:
- Skin Cancer
However, sunless tanning offers a safe alternative to hours spent in the sun. With a self tan you can achieve a truly healthy glow in less than ten minutes; it’s actually much faster than baking in the sun all day! But remember to protect your skin by wearing a medium to high grade SPF when in the sun when using sunless tanning products to ensure your skin stays safe.
Sunless tanning offers all the benefits of a golden tan without damaging your beautiful skin!
