January 15, 2013
Nothing looks more appealing than a glowing bronze tan on pale skin. With the perfect tan, your skin can look healthy and most importantly, it accentuates the tones of your body. Sun bathing is a risky way to get a tan as it exposes you to the sun’s harmful UV rays and the increasing risk of skin cancer.
The best alternative is sunless tanning. Sunless tanning does not damage the skin and its main types include tanning lotions, foams, and sprays. All these products have their pros and cons. The best self tanning products for you will depend on your skin type and its specific needs.
Sunless Tanning Foams or Mousses
Tanning foams provide an even coverage when comparing the best self tanning products. The foam simply glides over the skin, providing an even smooth coverage. Tanning foams are also good to use when a spot has been missed and you need a quick touch-up. MoroccanTan’s Instant Tanning Mousse is one of the best self tanning products as it comprises of argan oil and their Moroccan Blend colour technology formula, with triple enhanced bronzers.
Sunless Airbrush Tanning Sprays
Airbrush tanning sprays are considered to be one of the best self tanners. They are mostly used in tanning salons and they give a professional even look when used at home. However, applying a tanning spray requires accuracy, which comes only with practice. If it is only your first time then a self tanner may not be your best ideal option.
Also, if you have dry skin, do not choose this as your self-tanning method, as the shedding of dead skin cells creates uneven fading and blotchiness. MoroccanTan’s Instant Airbrush Spray is considered one of the best self tanning products, which comprises of their Moroccan Blend formula, argan oil, triple enhanced bronzers and triple moisture lock formula. It creates a flawless and streak-free spray tan every time.
Sunless Tanning Lotions
Tanning lotions are also considered to be one of the best self tanners. This is because these lotions carry sunscreens in them along with the tanning agents. In fact, most tanning lotions intensify the tan with the effects of UV rays. This is attained by the increase in amount of melanin these lotions create. It is also considered to be the safest ways of sunless tanning.
If you have dry skin, tanning lotions is your perfect option as these lotions can also have a moisturizing effect. The main ingredient in these tanning lotions are dihydroxyacetone (DHA), melanin, natural oils, green tea extracts, L-tyrosine. The disadvantage of tanning lotions is that it is difficult to apply it evenly, and it creates streaks. MoroccanTan’s Instant Tanning Lotion is considered the best self tanning product. It is designed for all skin types and it contains the nourishing argan oil ingredient.
Finding the best self tanner should taken into account the skin type, cost of the product and how experienced the user is with self tanning products. Either way you will be enjoying a beautiful bronzed look, minus the harmful effects of more traditional forms of tanning.
