Default Are Tanning Lotions What You Need To Make Tanning Beds Safe?

Long debates on advantages and disadvantages of tanning beds and
sunbathing are a good reason for many people to view a tan with

This has led companies to undertake extensive research to reduce the
harmful effects of Ultraviolet rays associated with tanning bed and
sunbathing. This resulted in a few lotions. These come in two
categories: Tanning bed & Sunbath lotions and Sunless tanning

Tanning Bed and Sunbath lotions

Tanning Bed Lotions - People use these lotions before or after taking
tanning bed treatments. Tanning bed lotions protect the skin from
excess ultraviolet light and accelerate indoor tanning.

Tan accelerators are another group of products used for tanning. These
lotions are used while sunbathing. They contain a natural enzyme that
stimulates the production of melanin (the body's natural tan creating
enzyme) with exposure to sunlight, as a result they are much more
effective. This group of lotions accelerates tanning and reduces the
harmful effects of sunlight.

Sunless Tanning: A Good Alternate to Ultra Violet Light Tanning

Self-tanning lotions will help you avoid the sun and decrease the risk
of ultraviolet exposure related problems, yet will make you look good.
The following are common types of generic sunless tanning lotions.

Self-tanning lotions - Research has proved them safe and effective.
The Food and Drug Administration has also tested them safe. The active
ingredient in these products is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA gives
color to the skin through a "browning reaction" when it combines with
amino acids in the skin to form a chemical compound known as
Melaninoid. Melaninoids are brown in color and this gives a long
lasting tan to skin.

Tanning sprays are temporary but a harmless means for tanning. They
save you from harmful UV rays and you do not need to make inconvenient
trips to tanning saloons. Aerosol tanning sprays can leave you with a
perfect looking, even tan with no hassles. All you need is to spray
them on your exposed body parts. Within minutes, you will have a tan
skin that you can show off anywhere.

Bronzers are yet another tanning product. They come in the form of
lotions and gels. Bronzers produce a darker color on the skin by using
water-soluble dyes. Bronzers color the skin almost immediately and it
dries very quickly. However, it is temporary and starts fading after
the first wash.

If you like healthy looking tanned skin, you never had it so good.
With the products available in the market, you can become a bronze god
in no time!
