Sunless Tanning Requires a Good Tanning Bed Lotion

Whatever your reasons for a tan, whether it is to prepare yourself for a tropical vacation or to simply look more beautiful, there are many sunless tanning products on the market to choose from. Or possibly, one visit to an indoor tanning bed may give you that golden brown glow for that special evening. If you are the type that loves to lie on the beach for that UV-induced tan, remember that using a top-quality tanning bed lotion is your best form of defense. One popular item is sunless tanning spray. This product is available at many spas and high-end salons and applications range anywhere from $25 to over $100. Sunless tanning spray contains DHA, which is applied as a fine mist to the entire body. The DHA reacts with skin cells on the surface of the body, causing them to turn brown. Most tanners that use this method experience dramatic results and are pleased, too. Sunless tanning usually lasts from five to seven days.

Whatever type of spray you decide on, it is usually oil or water-based. If you choose this method of tanning rather than lying on your local beach or tanning bed, some type of skin protection is needed. Sunless tanning spray has been approved since the 1970's. It is colorless and any change to the tanner's skin is purely chemical. After an application, you may smell a slight odor which will disappear after you shower and will not stain your clothing.

Sunless tanning spray is not recommended for everyone, especially if you have flaky or dry skin or even very fair skin. With dry skin, a spray tan could end up patchy and actually accelerate the shedding of dead skin cells. If you have very light skin pigment, the tan may end up too dark afterward. Remember that indoor tanning beds have many benefits, so when choosing which form of tanning best suits your needs, it all depends upon these factors.
