Medical circles classify how people tan by the type of skin they have. These types range from 1 to 6. Types 1 and 2 refer to white skin which seldom tans and sunburns easily. These are the people who benefit greatly from this type of sunless tanning without sun exposure.
In looking for this kind of sunless tanning one will find lotions, sprays, gens and creams available. Any of these can be self-applied but many people prefer to go to a professional spray salon. It should be remembered that sunless tanning must be renewed, usually every week, depending on the product. [I:https://healthclub90.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/HaywoodHunter1.jpg]
This type of sunless tanning came to the forefront when sun exposure damage was realized. The powerful UV and UVA sunrays, required for regular tanning, are damaging to the skin and can cause premature aging, cancer, and other problems. People with a sunless tan will still need protection if exposed to these rays for any period of time.
The majority of sunless tanning products contain an ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This is absorbed by the outer skin’s dead cells, causing them to darken. As the body sheds these cells, the tan will fade.
When using this sunless tanning method it is important to avoid any contact with the eyes, mucus membrane or lips as well as inhalation of the product, as this can be damaging. Professionals apply a gentle mist spray using special equipment such as an airbrush, LVLP spray gun. This is a safe way to get the desired tan as it is done under FDA guidelines and can make one achieve the appearance that is desired.
