There was a time when everyone was afraid of tanning and there is still quite a stigma when it comes to indoor tanning. At the same time we are appreciating how a tan looks and feels more and more, and most of us wouldn’t think about going for a night out without some on.
Tanning is done in a number of ways but it’s where your body is exposed to light (ultraviolet light) for a prolonged period of time. In this time the ultraviolet rays have an impact on your skin and the melanin in your skin cells. More melanin is produced as a response which leads to a darkening of the surrounding area. This is what we call a tan.
Tanning is what we do to make ourselves feel sexier and better looking. It gives us an even skin tone and makes us look generally a lot healthier and well maintained. It even makes clothes look better on us!
Aside from the aesthetics, tanning can also make us healthier too. When exposed to sunlight or UV light our bodies are encouraged to produce vitamin D. This is one of the most important vitamins for our body and has been proven to provide numerous benefits.
Vitamin D is used by our body to fight disease. It’s been shown to help with various forms of cancer, specifically liver cancer, and also with arthritis and hypertension. Interestingly vitamin D has also been linked to preventing obesity as it stimulates the thyroid gland which is associated with the metabolism.
Tanning makes us look and feel great. It’s an important part of our style and something we consider alongside our clothes and haircut.
There’s a number of ways to get a tan, but unless you’re lucky enough to live in a sun kissed area you’ll need to hit the sunbeds. Even for those who live in those sunny areas often indoor tanning can be more effective and take less time to produce results.
Indoor tanning is a great way to get an even tan, but if you’re looking for the best results you should consider selecting a tanning lotion. Tanning lotions are specially designed to help with the tanning process. There are a number of them on the market, with outdoor tanning lotions helping you tan but also containing sunscreen to protect the skin.
Indoor tanning lotions don’t have any sunscreen but instead are specially designed to be used in sunbeds, encouraging an even tan which lasts but also so they won’t have any effect on the beds themselves.
There are two main types of indoor tanning lotion. Basic Tan Accelerators are used for those who are new to tanning and just want to establish a base tan. These are simple and often contain moisturisers which hydrate and soothe the skin so it’s protected.
Bronzers are the more common variety of tanning lotion. These work with the melanin in your skin to encourage more to be produced. This brings out the deep, natural looking colour of the skin pigment. When these first came out there were a number of reports of orange staining on the skin but the formula has since been perfected and now that’s not an issue.
Finding the Right Tanning Lotion
