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.

Every day more and more people are turning away from the damaging rays of the sun and tanning beds and instead turning to sunless tanners to get a safe, natural-looking tan without the harmful side effects of tanning.

What is Sunless Tanner?

Sunless Tanners, also called self tanner,  are lotions that react with the amino acids in the top layer of the skin to produce  a temporary artificial suntan without exposing the body to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Self Tanning lotions are a safe alternative to sunbathing .

Most self tanners gradually give the skin a sun-kissed glow  that normally starts to wear off within 4-5 days.

Is Sunless Tanner Safe?

Self tanners contain an ingredient called Dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, which is the active ingredient in self tanners that gives the skin its color. DHA is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is nontoxic when applied to the skin.

Other inactive ingredients, such as those found in Moisture Tan Sunless Tanning Lotion, may include:

  • Water
  • Sesame Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Aloe Vera,
  • NaPCA
  • Vitamin E
  • Propylene Glycol – a stablizer commonly used in topicals and vitamins.
  • Ceteryl Alcohol – mixture of fatty alcohols found in plants such as coconuts or palm oil (Wikipedia). Used in many lotions for its emollient properties that smooth and soften skin

Best Self Tanner

Looking for the best self tanner? Whether you’re a man or woman, have pale skin or medium-skin tones, here are a few things to look for when choosing a self tanner for your body, feet, or face.

The best self tanners will:

  1. not streak
  2. not leave your skin looking orange
  3. give your skin a natural-looking fake bake tan
  4. leave your skin soft and smooth
  5. not have a bad odor
  6. dry in minutes

Some self tanners on the market contain either Stearic Acid, Triethanolamine, and/or Mineral Oil. These ingredients contain a high PH level which turns the skin orange. Tanning Bay’s self tanners do not contain these ingredients which is just one of the reasons customers love our tanning lotions.

I love the product! It doesn't feel sticky or anything when applying it. It absorbs like normal lotion and it blends well. I didn't have any issues with it looking orange or splotchy.
