How to Get a Bronze Glow Without the Tanning Bed

It is a sad fact that someone receives the terrible news every 62 minutes that their life will be forever changed by skin cancer. Skin cancer is becoming less rare every year, in fact, statistics show an 800% increase in skin cancer. There are healthy alternatives to tanning beds and sun tanning, such as spray tanning, sunless tanning, and using self-tanners.

There are healthy alternatives on the market and it is important to educate yourself about them and your responsibility to yourself to protect your skin. While sunless tanning has gotten a bad rap because of the “orange oompa loompa” look, it’s come a long way in the last 10 years. The products have the most natural look of a tan and some will even fade like a natural tan would. A good tip for using a sunless tanner is to moisturize daily, this will help with the fading process and help with the “natural look”. The beauty of sunless tanning is that it takes no time, less than 10 minutes, and you’re ready for a beautiful, healthy, natural tan.

There are other benefits to using a self-tanner instead of going to the tanning bed or lying in the sun. For example, using a product line that has antiaging ingredients and moisturizing ingredients is designed to make skin look and feel great. Some of the ingredients that help fight aging are marine collagen and COQ10, which are designed to help restore skin elasticity, so be sure to look for those key ingredients when choosing a self-tanner. Sunless tanning has a reputation for drying out the skin, so another tip is to look at the product’s ingredient panel and keep an eye out for moisturizing ingredients; some of those ingredients include a well-known moisturizing agent, aloe. As you can see, there’s no reason not to protect, love, and keep your skin feeling great by using self-tanners or getting an airbrush tan.

Anyone, male or female, can use sunless tanners and/or airbrush tanning to achieve the healthy tan you’re looking for without damaging your skin and risking skin cancer. A study by the Skin Cancer Foundation shows that “skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 3.5 million skin cancers in more than two million people are diagnosed annually.” Do the right thing for you and your skin, use sunless self-tanners or get an airbrush tan to save your skin and your health! Your family and loved ones will thank you in the end.
