Having a sun-kissed complexion has been a popular cultural trend that is now become massive. Everyone wants to have glowing golden skin but what about in winter? Even in summer lying in the sun all day isn’t the best way to get a suntan as UV rays can be very harmful for the skin. Then there are the winter months or those that live in colder climates that makes it even more difficult to achieve a natural tan. Because of this there are now many self-tanning products on the market but many of these leave you more of an orange Oompa-Loompa than a golden god or goddess! Here at WeightWorld we offer tanning solutions that will leave you with a natural looking glow, without the streaks or the hassle!
What are the options to achieving a tan?
There are many ways to turn tan with the most traditional method being to sunbathe. Ideally this is through lying on the beach in the sun and enjoying yourself. Although this is something that feels good though, this can be one of the most dangerous methods as UV rays can be very damaging to your skin and can also increase the skin's aging process. Therefore it is important to use of sunscreen with a high SPF to protect skin when out in the sun. Because of this, tanning in the sun isn’t always the best option for a healthy tan.
For many people that can’t lay on a beach all day in the sun, an alternative is a solarium or sunbed. This is one of many options that can help you achieve a good colour, but comes with a high risk of skin irritation, eczema and skin cancer. This is due to the UV radiation the body absorbs and as it is more intense, it can be even more harmful for you than the suns natural UV rays.
Spray tans are an option for those looking to achieve a glow but without damaging their skin with harmful UV rays. They can be a quick and effective way to turn brown, but can be expensive and can take a lot of time and effort with appointments. Also if done incorrectly, it can still turn out streaky and orange.
One of the easiest and least expensive way to achieve a summer glow, whatever the weather, is to use a home self-tanning product. These allow you to achieve your tan from the comfort and ease of your own home and are a lot easier to reverse if something does go wrong. When selecting a self-tanner though, make sure you choose one that is the correct shade for you. It is also recommended to exfoliate before and use a primer to achieve the best results. You can also use a gloss after to prolong your tan to keep your glow as long as possible.
As with self-tanners, these are a tanning solution that is easy and can be done from home. These are supplements that provide carotene and vitamin E to help with the production of melanin in the skin which is responsible for giving it a tanned glow. By taking tanning supplements they can help you achieve and prolong your tan but without any UV rays, streaks or unnatural colours. They are also the easiest and least time consuming but won’t show instant results and will take time to naturally build up.
Although tanning in the sun may be on of the most enjoyable and relaxing, it is one of the most inconvenient and also one of the most dangerous. Here at WeightWorld we want you to care for your skin so for those looking to achieve a natural looking tan without the damaging affect of UV rays, we have the perfect products for you!
