Best Ways To Tan’s face it – most people look better with a tan. I know I do (at least I think I do). You know how dark clothes make you look thinner? Well, I think dark skin has the same effect.

I miss those days of not caring about my skin and getting as brown as wood from just playing outdoors. But now I’m a fanatic about covering my face. My daily moisturizer has a 30 SPF and when I sit by the pool or on the beach I wear a hat, sunglasses and usually sit under an umbrella. And I try to remember to reapply lotion every few hours. And you should too.

According dermatologist Casey Gallagher, MD, sun exposure, the

predominant source of ultraviolet radiation, is never healthy. “Based on recent reports, the International Agency for Cancer Research has elevated both ultraviolet radiation and tanning beds, which emit ultraviolet rays, to the highest level of cancer-causing agents,” Dr. Gallagher warns.

He says that while some people think of the sun as a good source of Vitamin D production, it’s much safer to take supplements.  And when it comes to over the counter tanning products or spray tans — they pose no threats, unless you have an allergy to one of the ingredients.

Or an aversion to the smell. All sunless tanning products are made with DHA (dihydroxyacetone), which temporarily stains the skin surface and fades like a suntan does as skin cells are shed naturally. And they all have that stinky tanning solution smell, although some do a better job of masking it than others.

Bronzers contain either natural pigments or an amino acid that comes from sugar cane and is known as DHA (which stands for dihydroxyacetone). Both work safely by reacting with proteins on the top layer of the skin. This leads to a instant deep, rich tan than lotions without bronzers. Bronzers continue to penetrate and darken the tan for several hours after application. Although they are easy to apply, it is important to apply them properly — follow our self tanner application instructions for a fabulous professional-looking tan. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after applying the bronzer.
