Most light skinned individuals secretively or brazenly crave to have a bronzed tanned look on their skins. While this is not hard at all for those living within the tropics, the task becomes harder the more one moves into the more temperate and arctic climate areas. If you live in such places, you do not have to despair in your quest as there are now available a number of sunless tanning products that will prove good for your purposes.[youtube:vhBTTjChPg8;[link:best self tan lotion, best sunless tanning cream];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vhBTTjChPg8&feature=related]
The skin is both a tough and very sensitive body organ and therefore any application of a chemical product must be done with caution. However, the main constituent ingredient of these products which is also the active ingredient is not harmful on all skin types provided it is used properly. Known as Dihydroxyacetone or DHA, it is proven as an effective agent that helps dry the skin to attain a darkly tanned look that is reminiscent of several days spent sunning.
While the effects of DHA are desirable on the skin and have no known side effects, care needs to be taken when applying the substance. This is because the effects on the internal human body are unknown. This means one should extra cautious when application is being made on the skin especially if it is being delivered by a spray system to ensure none of the substance gets into the eyes for instance.[I:http://www.articleslayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/VeronicaCappelletti1.jpg]
You should take heed in knowing that getting a tan through DHA application will not result in permanent tanning of the skin. Actually, the effect wears off after no more than a few days. This means that if you are not impressed by the result, you have no choice but to wait a couple of days before the skin returns to its normal tone. Taking a shower will have no effect at all on the result.
The application of a self tanning product works effectively only if the skin is well prepared in advance. This in most cases means a whole course of exfoliation where the skin is kept moisturized for a number of days. Before applying the tanner, one needs to scrub the skin sufficiently enough in the shower in order to get rid of all the dead skin cells.
A number of sunless tanning product offers are currently available in the market. So long as someone takes reasonable precautions, there is no need to fear negative side effects. One does not have to lie for endless hours on a tropical beach to attain a desirable skin tan.
