Self Tanner Lotions

Self Tanner Lotions Offer A Quick And Safe Way To Tan The dangers of UV radiation from the sun are well documented. While exposure to sunlight can give you a glowing dark tan, each exposure also damages the skin. As you age, you pay the cost of tanning in the sun become more apparent. Self tanner lotions can provide a natural looking tan without exposing yourself to the dangers of natural sunlight.

Sunless tanning products give the skin a tanned look without exposure to the UV rays that are a natural part of sunlight. These products are commonly available in a lotion or spray formula. The lotion products are easy to apply and often include moisturizers to keep your skin soft and subtle. Properly applied, the lotion can give results that approach the perfection one would find through spray tanning at a more affordable price.

The active ingredient in most of sunless tanning products is a color additive. Its chemical name is dihydroxyacetone. The inactive ingredients in the product are there as a carrier to allow the user to apply this chemical evenly to the body or as moisturizers. When dihydroxyacetone is applied to the skin, it reacts with the top layer of cells to temporarily darken the skin. Since this layer of skin is primarily dead cells, they wear off after a few days, along with the color.

Some people believe that once they have a tan, it is safe to go out into the sun without a sunscreen. However, even a natural tan does not provide this protection. With the sunless products, it is still possible to experience painful sunburn, even though your body already looks tanned. Sunless lotion may include a sunscreen product, but its effectiveness wears off in a few hours. For best protection, reapply a clear sunscreen each time you plan to be in the sun.

For the best tan using these products make sure you have enough time when you plan to apply the product. Start with a shower using a bath poof to exfoliate. Removing skin cells that are about to fall off anyways ensures your tan lasts longer and gives a more even application. Dry your body thoroughly and pretereat any problem skin, such as knees or elbows with a moisturizing lotion.

Because you use the palms of the hands to make the application, they should be protected from receiving too much of the product. When applying these products, you should wear latex or silicon gloves. Without this precaution, you may have a great tan but orange palms.

While sunless tanning lotions and sprays are considered safe, pills that promise to give you a sunless tan should be avoided. Typically they contain canthaxanthin. This chemical additive can turn the skin brown or orange. It may also cause hives, impair your vision or damage your liver.

Regardless of the time of year, you can have a great looking tan. Self tanner lotions provide the look you desire without exposure to UV rays. There is no time like the present to take some time for yourself and create the tan you want.

The color this product leaves behind is lovely. Warm, natural looking tan. Very realistic color, not at all orange. Loved the tint it left on my fair skin!

However, this is not a product you can just slap on before bed and wake up looking sun-kissed and perfect. There is a good amount of preparation needed and time invested to avoid a splotchy mess as I found out on my first try. (This is not my first go round with self tanner, but this product is far less forgiving than some others) You really need to wear gloves with this. It dries and sets incredibly fast. Even working in sections and washing in between it turned my hands a horrifying shade of umber that wouldn't rinse away...or scrub away, chemically peel away. Nightmare. If you have any dry patches this will highlight your reptile skin.

So be ready. Get clean, exfoliated and well moisturized ahead of time. Get some latex gloves. Work in small sections.

You definitely want to make sure to apply this at night and take a shower in the morning. You wouldn't want to go out in the day with this on. It's tinted so you can be sure not to miss any spots but the lotion has a strange greenish tint to it and where the product overlaps leaves dark lines. It all rinses away and comes out a nice and even, lightly tanned shade after bathing. Fragrance is pleasant upon application but develops the same funky smell all the tanning products get once the chemical reactions start.

Color lasts about three days and fades rather evenly.

Once I knew what I was in for successive applications have had great results. Does a great job at making skin look naturally young and healthy and minimizing imperfections.

So far, so good! Make sure to rub it in super fast because it dried fast. The color is great so far. Used baking soda and soap to scrub off the color from my palms and it worked great, I don't know what the big deal about the hands and glove thing is. I would recommend this to anyone!

This review is from: SUN LABORATORIES Self Tanning Lotion Tan Overnight - Medium (8 oz) (Misc.)I like the fast results of this product. I didn't like the colored hands. I couldn't put this product on fast enough to keep my hands from turning color. YOU MUST use gloves. But this is a beautiful color and a quick result product for that unexpected event that comes up. Just make sure you put it on in a circular motion to have complete coverage without streaks. It smells fine too. I wasn't allergic to this product either. I bought Lavera tanner for my face....loved it because I didn't break out. I was afraid to try this on my face. Hope this helps.

LOVE IT! Quick Natural looking tan, March 31, 2014

This review is from: SUN LABORATORIES Self Tanning Lotion Tan Overnight - Medium (8 oz) (Misc.)I've tried several self tanning products, and this by far works the best. After just one use, i had a great natural looking light tan, and then used it again 2 nights later and got a little bit darker. I love that there isn't an orange tint to it at all, and it doesn't appear streaky at all. It lasted about 3 days and it faded evenly, not blotchy,I will definitely be buying this product again.

This product is so addicting, at first you might think that it's too much for self tanner but if you get the very dark you can make two bottles last the entire summer and fall. There is never any streaking. The dark color might scare you at first but it rubs and blends in gorgeously. It doesn't smell like a traditional self tanner, but it does have a slight 'lotion-y' smell to it hence why the four stars instead of five. However it has red and gray undertones so you never EVER go orange. My friend and I are obsessed! She has pink undertones and I have olive. It looks fabulous on the both of us!
