Sunless tanning lotions and creams are a great option for tan lovers. These self-tanning products impart a healthy warm glow to the skin, without posing any of the dangers of traditional tanning methods. Tanning products come in a variety of forms, including airbrush and spraying solutions, as well as creams and gel-based tanning solutions that are quick and easy to apply.

How Sunless Tans Work

Most self-tanning solutions contain a chemical known as dihydroxyacetone or DHA, an FDA-approved colorless sugar. When the dead cells in the upper layers of the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) come in contact with DHA, the amino acids in these cells react with the foreign chemical in a process known as the Maillard reaction.

This Maillard reaction causes the skin tone to change and take on a warm tint, very similar in appearance to naturally produced sun tans. In contrast to earlier self-tanning products, the current range of sunless tanning creams, lotions, and spays do not contain any kind of dye, paint, or staining pigment. Therefore, contemporary tanning products are completely safe to use, causing no permanent change in the skin. The effect generally fades naturally over a period of three to ten days.

Advantages of Sunless Tanning

There are several significant advantages of self-tanning products that can be summarized as follows:

* Avoid Harmful UV Exposure - Extended exposure to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation present in sunlight has been conclusively proven to be harmful for the skin in the long run. Overexposure to solar radiation not only accelerates the natural skin aging process, but also greatly increases the risk of several life-threatening conditions, including cancer of the skin. With sunless tanning, there is no longer any need to expose your delicate skin to the harsh rays of the sun. Several latest tanning products also contain some form of sun screen that provides an extra layer of protection against the UV rays.
* Natural And Easy To Use - Currently available tanning creams and lotions are extremely easy to use. The tan appears as soon as the cream is applied and is a warm sun-kissed bronze that looks exactly like the real tan. The tanning products are also waterproof and smear-resistant, so there is little chance of spoiling your outfit. Sunless tanning products give you an instant glow, perfect for when you need to look your best at a short notice.
* Cost-Effective - Self-tanning products are very low priced and come in a variety of sizes to cater to every kind of tanning needs. With these products you no longer need to depend on expensive tanning salons. Today, even previously salon-only treatments like airbrush tans are available in DIY kits that allow you to indulge in professional-level tanning for a fraction of the cost of a salon treatment.

Finally, in addition to tanning creams, lotions, and sprays, several cosmetic and bath and body products are available that provide a temporary bronzed tint to the skin. Unlike the usual sunless tanners, these bronzing powders, moisturizers, and shower gels last only until the next shower or wash, and are perfect for short-term tanning needs.
