A Do-It-Yourself Guide for Beginners To Study Fake Tan

May 18, 2008
Uv gives you a sexy tan but also causes photo ageing. No need to stay under the sun for hours anymore. Getting a fake tan is just as good.

In fact, it's in! You don't even need to spend hundreds of dollars at saloons to get yourself a glowing skin and a radiant complexion. Yet another advantage is that the new formulae of the artificial tanning products give even better, not to mention faster, results. Indeed, when applied to the skin, these products result in more natural and uniform tones than the effects of natural tans.

Yes, you can now get a perfect suntan all year round, and without even getting out of your home.

Sometimes I wonder why we call it Fake Tan. I mean, a tan is a tan, no matter how you obtain it. And here the results are even more stunning. Composed of an active principle called di hydroxy acetone (dha), tanning products provoke the oxidization of the superficial cells of the epidermis, thus creating a coloration of skin that stays on average between 4 and 6 days, and then gradually fades away as the skin peels off.

These products are available on the market in different forms: cream, milk, serum, fluid, spray, and so on. But personally I prefer creams with moisturizing properties to avoid dehydration of the epidermis, especially for the face.

The advantage of sprays, on the other hand, is that - thanks to their ultra-light texture - they adjust perfectly to the fatty skin around humps and curves in the body.

Getting a fake tan nowadays not only easy and safe but also almost instant. Trusted cosmetic companies are seeing to it that their tanning products are absolutely risk-free and give you a harmonious tan without the risks bound to tanning in the sun (sunburns, allergies, accelerated ageing or photo ageing, etc.). Because cut-throat competition exists between them, as we are all aware, popular brands of beauty products are all improving their tanning products day by day, allying comfort, lightness and hydration.

Still, a few simple steps and preparations could help you achieve an even better fake tan. It is always recommended that you apply a light scrub over your skin and wash it off before the tanning product itself is applied. This will refine your epidermis, especially in areas where the layers of skin are thicker (elbows, knees, etc.).

Exfoliating the skin regularly after the tan will equally help eliminate dead cells and unify the complexion. This will also avoid the piling up of layers of dead cells over the skin, which will obviously make your complexion appear dry and dull. Regular exfoliation will ensure that your tan looks fresh and help maintain that glow you love so much.

Conclusively, we could say that having a Fake Tan is definitely better and safer than long hours of exposure in the sun, especially as uv rays get more aggressive day by day due to the depletion of the ozone layer. Anyway, in many parts of the world you don't have the sun all year round, but you would still want to have a great tan!
