Since tanning requires you to expose your body or rather the skin to the sun, you should know the risks like cancer of the skin or other skin problems that such exposure can result to. However, note that it is not only through natural tanning that you can get that dark and exotic look, you can also do it artificially. This method is better as it also comes with different sun tan lotions that you can use.[youtube:IdkZUE_8olw;[link:tanning lotions, sunless tanning, brand you name];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IdkZUE_8olw&feature=related]
The following aspects will help you in making this task easy. The first thing to consider is the ingredients used. This is important because these products use chemicals and you need to ensure that they are not harmful.
The most effective way to know if a particular lotion you are using is safe is to visit a dermatologist. All you will have to do is have a list of types you would like to have from which the skin doctor will advise on the best. Mostly, lotions containing dihydroxyacetone as an ingredient are commonly recommended by health board as it is deemed safe.[I:http://www.articleslayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/VeronicaCappelletti1.jpg]
Dihydroxyacetone is considered as the safest, because it is a colorless sugar, which tends to interact with dead skin cells to cause color change after application. In addition, it affects the top most layer of your skin leaving the rest unaffected. The advantage of this is because dead skin cells shed off after 20 to 30 days thus allowing the skin to regain its original color.
Another aspect you need to look into is reputation of the supplier or manufacturer. That is, if a company has been in the spotlight due to complaints from customers then, you need avoid such products. Companies that have made a name for themselves in the market are the best choice, for safe products.
Nevertheless, remember to check on the cost of these products. The best sun tan lotions may however be expensive. Since you need quality care, this reason should not discourage you from buying as long as it of high standard.
