Sun Labs Medium Vs. Dark

How Sun Labs Medium Vs. Dark WorkSelf tanning has been popular for around half a century especially after other methods of tanning were found to be carcinogenic especially for the skin. Basically, this is the application of various products to the skin that gives the impression of a suntan. Sun Labs Medium Vs. Dark are two products that are in this category.

The skin has two main layers which are the epidermis and the dermis. When it comes to the tanning effect, this usually occurs on the epidermis. The epidermis is also composed of layers, the basal layer is the deepest and it is where the sun tanning occurs whereas the top layer, horny layer, is where sunless tanning products affect.

The initial products usually gave the skin an orange hue and were in lotion form. However, with time there has been progress in the industry and the products range from pills to bronzers and the shade has also been diversified from light to darker tans. Their period of taking effect usually range from one to about three hours.

All these products contain the sugar dihydroxyacetone which is the ingredient that comes into contact with the dead skin cells and cause them to change to the desired color. This tan usually lasts to up to one week since the skin is constantly shedding off dead cells and in that period one has a new epidermis as such the tan effect will fade. To maintain the effect, it is advisable to reapply the product every three days.

While the applying products are most popular due to their reliability, there are plenty of options in the industry. The pills have an ingredient called canthaxanthin which was previously used in the food industry as a coloring element. Once ingested, the ingredient is spread in all parts of the body and causes the skin to change color into an orange hue. However, these pills have side effects.

The bronzer is a different type of sunless tanner whereby one applies it on the skin in form of powders and moisturizers to create the desired effect. They work like other types of makeup. The advantage of this type is that it can easily be washed off the skin using soap and water.

Natural sunbathing is the most direct method to achieve the tan effect. The problem of this method is that the body is exposed to ultra violet rays that mat bring complications to the body. Therefore, products help one achieve a similar effect without exposure to the sunlight. However, there are many concerns that are arising due to the use of such products thus one needs to be sure that the products one uses meet the required standards.

The sun lab medium self tanning cream is a product that uses natural ingredients to tan the face as well as reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It helps firm up the skin while hydrating it as well. It helps the user to achieve a dark tan without exposing oneself to the sun. The comparison of Sun Labs Medium Vs. Dark usually depends on the depth of the tan that one wants to achieve. It varies from the orange to a darker brownish hue.

Awesome self-tanner!! from San Francisco, CA Verified Purchaser
I just got this yesterday and used it for the first time last night all over my body. It was relatively easy to apply (although I washed my hands throughout the application process to avoid staining them). I was so happy with the results that I used it on my face when I woke up this morn. I just went into the bathroom at work and was like, 'I look tan!!' I've been avoiding the sun for the past three years, so it's the first time I've seen myself tan in a long time, and I love it!! It is a nice, golden color, too--exactly the way my skin looks when it's really tan. The smell is nice when you put it on, but it does fade into that self-tanner smell after awhile. That and the price are the only drawbacks--well worth it in my opinion. Review posted 3/12/2012.

Very good, realistic color from a self-tanner from Ipswich, MA Verified Purchaser
The best quality of this self-tanner is that it contains a color guide that actually stains your skin (some of it washes off, but part of the color guide remains and is long lasting) and so the color guard tint adds to the DHA self-tanner color...this makes the resulting 'tan' more realistic than a DHA self-tan alone would be. Normally I avoid self-tanners with color guides as they tend to be messy, to stain clothing and look dirty, but this product's color guide actually has a purpose in that it improves the final tan color. That usually isn't the case, especially with most drugstore self-tanners. Also, this product has very little of that unattractive self-tanner scent. Lastly, because the concentration of DHA is quite high, you use less (one or two coats) to get a dark color, but you avoid being orange because of the residual stain of the color guide. The end result is a reddish brown tan color. This is pricey, but will last a long time and a worthwhile investment if you tend to turn orange with self-tanners. Good product!

Best Sun Tanner Ever from Overland Park, KS Verified Purchaser
I love this sun tanner. It's great to mix with the lotion of your choice. It has a bronzer in it as well as a tanner, so you can see where it is and isn't as you're applying it. It's very dark, so it lasts a long time, too. Review posted 10/10/2012.

Sun Laboratories by AA
I received this lotion in the mail last month and was very excited to try it out. I applied the lotion after taking a shower like it recommended. I LOVE this sunless tan lotion! It does not smell like usual sunless tanning products. The only CON I found was that it leaves your hands brown after applying, but washes away with soap and water. I tried using gloves, but I did not think it applied as easy and as smooth with them on. Definitely recommend it.

This is my all time favorite self tanner by MALGRIFFIN from BRANTFORD, ON
This is the first self tanner I have ever tried. I've been using it for about 3 years now and I've tried quite a few others including st tropez, fake bake and others and this is by far my favorite and everything else I have tried was just a huge let down compared to this. For me this is the longest lasting one, basically fool proof to apply it's so easy and does not streak. This is the only one I've found that will make me dark enough, and I just love it. Nothing has beat this for me yet. Review posted 7/24/2012.
