With summer fast approaching, people have more inspiration than ever to get that sun-kissed glow. While many women in particular desire a look that is summery, they are aware of the damage that sun exposure can cause. As a result, many are exploring the option of sunless tanning products. However, they do question if this is a safe alternative.
Applying Sunless Tanners Safely
You are not putting yourself into any danger by applying sunless tanner to your skin. However, you must evaluate the products you are considering the same way you would look at the ingredients in your other skin care products. If you intend to use the product on your face, you want something that is oil-free if you struggle with acne. As some of these products tend to have a strong fragrance, also look for a fragrance-free tanner if you intend to use it on your face. Otherwise, there is a possibility that you will experience irritation. If you are going to have the sunless tanner applied in a salon, ensure that you let a staff member know if you have any concerns about the ingredients or the process.
Also remember that sunless tanner does not protect your skin from UV rays. Ensure that you apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher.
