Cosmetics has been formulated for thousands of years. Vanity concoction has either make or break what it wants to be enhanced. Until now, people still find better ways to become more beautiful. At Sun Labs, this pursuit began in 1983 as a family owned company.

It has been successful in addressing Caucasian age-long tanning problem. Using only safe and natural ingredients, it boasts of healthy alternative solution forgetting a much coveted darker bronze skin tone. It now has a product that could create even sun-tanned skin without the sun.
While it is healthy, too much sun causes many skin flaws like freckles, age spots, red rough patches, spider veins, wrinkles and makes it look dry, loose and leathery. This is because UV exposure disables self-healing and stops collagen production while depleting it. Collagen is the protein fiber that gives strength to the external structure of cells, and also gives cell its stuffing. This and keratin provides the skin with strength, flexibility, and resilience. Elastin production is also impaired. This is the elastic protein that makes tissues spring back to its original shape after being stretched.[I:http://www.articleslayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/HaywoodHunter1.jpg]
Another effect would be aging. Although it is a natural process and everyone is not exempted to it, nature and nurture both play a part to make it happen. Because nature is dictated by genetic make-up, nurture is the only thing that can be manipulated. Nurture would either help it or delays it. Therefore, it is wise to be protected and to know what skin care products are beneficial and those that are harmful.
The damaging sun-exposure not only ages but also causes the dreaded big C. Skin cancer is common among light-skinned persons. It is a condition with uncontrolled and abnormal cell growth. Symptoms vary but the most common are ulcer that does not seem to heal, patch or discoloration or mole that is deforming.
For a long time, light skin tone symbolizes aristocracy until the end of Victorian Era. It was in 1920 that the famous French fashion designer Coco Chanel got a sun burn travelling in some parts of France, who then got positive feedback for sporting the new tanned look. Meanwhile, a promising French singer who has caramel skin tone, by the name of Josephine Baker, soared to popularity. Her healthy dark tone was well appreciated and getting sun tan has become the new fad.
In the 1940’s sun bathing was a popular health advise. Women dared to wear bikini swimsuits. It was ironic that not too long ago, a darker skin tone has been looked down for being a mark of the lower working class who had to work outdoor. Nevertheless, more and more lighter skinned burn under the heat of the sun for beauty sake.
Getting a wonderful dark tone can be healthy with the many products of this company. One particular product much loved by Hollywood celebrities and professional tanning salons is the tinted self tanners. Some other popular products are the handheld semi-professional sunless tanning equipment, and roll-on self tanners among others.
Sun Labs also have other products like Tan Moisturizer Maintainer for those who love the sun but not burn. One can apply any of its products including the tanning solutions as often as possible safely. It boasts of using all-natural ingredients in all of its formulations like Aloe Vera and Soybean oil to have that beautiful healthy glow.
