Getting Excellent Results From Sun Fake Tan

By Haywood Hunter

Since health authorities in the United States declared that exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause Skin cancer, people have been trying fake tans. The early tanning products looked slightly unnatural but with recently improvident and technologies they now produce a tan that looks no different from sun bathing. This is due to the discover y of DHA. DHA is a natural chemical that is found in sugar beet. Sun Fake Tan lotions use DHA and is one the best self tanning lotions available.

DHA is an acronym for dihydroxyacetone; it is a naturally occurring chemical that is found in sugar cane and sugar beet. It is perfectly harmless on the skin and works by causing a chemical reaction on the skins outer layer. This causes the skin to darker, much like the UV rays from sun do. The darker self tanning lotions contain a higher level of DHA and Sun Laboratories offer a variety of products that contain different levels of DHA, so you can enjoy a deep dark tan or a lighter tan depending on your preference.

The skin that the DHA reacts are actually dead skin cells. Because of this it is important to exfoliate before applying any self tanner. Otherwise, when the older cells come off the tan will begin to looking patchy and uneven. Exfoliating is best dome in the shower, with a good quality exfoliating scrub. The shower is the perfect place to exfoliate, there are many excellent exfoliating scrubs that are available to purchase either at stores or online, that will do an excellent job at removing dead skin.

Once you have finishing exfoliating the skin it is advisable to moisturize. This helps the tan last long as moisturizers slow down the shedding of dead cell cells. It also makes the skin more supple, which lets the tan lotion sit better on the skin.

If you are planning on becoming a regular user of fake tan products then it would be advisable to moisturize at least once between applications. A self tan will last for at least 10 days so plan of moisturizing on the 5th day. Moisturizing will hemp the tan last longer but will also keep the skin's dead cells at an equal level, which will ensure that you always have an even tan.

Fake tans start working immediately and the effects can be seen after just a few hours. The full effect of the fake tan can usually be enjoyed the following morning, although lighter skinned individuals may need to wait an extra day. It is advisable not to shower or do any exercise for at least four hours after applying the lotion. Otherwise the water and sweat may cause it to become unevenly spread over the skin, resulting in a patchy tan.

DHA does not stain material or damage the hair in any way. It also does not stain the skin or affect the skin's pigmentation. It is OK to towel dry after applying fake tanners as it this only removes excess lotion and doesn't have a negative effect on the tanning process. Tanners are fine for people with sensitive skin but those who may have dermatological conditions should speak to their doctor or skin specialist before using a fake tanner.

Those who wish to use a self tanning product all the time will be able to make some serious savings if they buy online. Buying in bulk is another way to make self tanning cheaper. Sun laboratories products are available at many online retailers for competitive prices. Sun fake tan products are extremely effective and produce long lasting results.
