5 Myths About Self-Tanning

5 Myths About Self-Tanning

If you have been trying to get a golden, natural looking tan but you want to avoid the damaging rays of the sun, there is an alternative. Self-tanning products are designed to give you a safe, natural looking tan quickly and easily in the privacy of your own home. When used properly, self-tanning products will not only give you a beautiful golden tan, but they can also nourish and hydrate your skin leaving it feeling silky soft and smooth.

There are, however, some misconceptions that you might have heard about self-tanning products and we are here to bust those myths and show you just how effective today’s self-tanning products really are.

We debunk the five most common myths about spray tanning:

Self-Tanning Can Prevent Sun Burns- this is a very dangerous myth as it deals with the health of your skin. Self-tanning products provide no more protection from the sun than your makeup does unless it contains SPF. You should always protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays, even if you have a good base tan to begin with.

Self-Tanning Is Messy- another myth that we hear quite often is that self-tanning products are messy. As long as you follow the directions on the package and don’t spill, there is really no way that you can make a mess using self-tanning products. In fact, many self-tanning product kits include a pair of latex gloves to keep your hands clean.

Self-Tanning Makes You Look Orange- this is the most popular myth about self-tanning products and quite possibly the most mistaken. Self-tanning products are created in colours that mimic natural tans. Unless you purchase orange tanning cream, self-tanning products won’t leave you looking orange.

Self-Tans Don’t Last- when compared to an equivalent natural tan level, self-tanning products typically give you about the same colour lifespan. Remember, natural tans fade just as much as an artificial tan if it isn’t maintained. Once you reach your desired level of tan with a self-tanner, you will need to maintain it weekly.

The Tanning Solution Will Irritate Your Skin- self-tanning products won’t typically irritate your skin. In fact, many self-tanning products are now oil-free, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free. You can even find organic self-tanning products.
