A common misconception when it comes to tanning is that tanning beds are safer than a tan you would get from the sun. However, UV tanning beds give off UVA rays, which don’t have the vitman D benefits of UVB rays and can cause more damage to your skin. This is why spray tanning and sunless tanners are becoming a more popular option. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you should make that switch as well.
No Harmful UV Rays
Spray tans and self tanners help you to get a nice golden glow without exposing your skin to harmful UV rays. Both natural sun tans and tans from a bed expose your skin to these rays can cause aging and even cancer. Most tanning memberships offer spray tan options, so you probably don’t have to cancel your membership to make the switch. You can also buy self tanners and use them at home.
Quick and Easy
Sunless tanners help give you glowing skin in no time at all. They usually work within an hour of application and are easy to apply. You can get the look you want in no time at all, even when you’re on a time crunch.
Choose Your Shade
You also get more control over how dark your skin gets. Different formulas allow for varied color intensity, so you can choose if you want to keep it subtle or go super dark. You can also build some formulas up to achieve the color you want without going too dark too quickly.
Simple to Maintain
A sunless tan is super easy to maintain as well. Tanning memberships allow you to pop in and boost your spray tan when needed, or you can reapply your self tanner at home when you decide you need it.
Staying tan all year round doesn’t have to come at the cost of your skin’s health. You can care for your skin and have a beautiful, sun kissed glow all at once with this safe and effective choice. Making the switch to spray tans or self tanner will help you age better, look amazing, and keep you healthy.
