Sun tan spray has been a popular product since the mid 1900s. When applied to exposed skin, it acts as protection against harmful UV (Ultra Violet) rays. There are many brands on the market. You can choose from lotions, gels, creams or sprays.[youtube:r55fxDqa704;[link:Sunless Tanning Lotion, sun, tanning, spray tan];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r55fxDqa704?version=3&feature=related]
Sunscreen should never be confused with suntan oil. The oil is made for people who wants to tan quickly. It actually strengthens the heat of the sun to ensure a deeper and quick tan. This product does not provide any protection and is not meant to do so. Sunscreens like sun tan cream reflects and filters the heat to protect the skin against harmful rays. When buying a product for a day at the beach, make sure to choose right.
The cream is also known as sunblock or suntan lotion. It is an essential sunscreen product and offers protection to anyone whose body is exposed to the sun for long periods. This must never be left behind when you plan to spend a summer day on the beach. Skin lightening products have sunscreen to protect lightened skin because light skin is more susceptible to sun damage than darker skin.[I:http://www.articleslayer.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/HaywoodHunter5.jpg]
Whatever kind of package you get it in, the cream should be applied to all skin that is exposed to the sun. For most adults, one squirt should be close to enough to cover all the areas that needs it. It is also available in a spray.
There is difference of opinion on exactly how to apply sunscreen products. Some people say apply it to the body two two three hours before you go outside. New research shows that two applications are actually more effective. One about 15 to 30 minutes minutes before you step into the sunlight and one after you have been outside for about the same period. Some kinds resist water. Others must be re-applied after swimming or sweating.
Babies should not really need suntan lotion because they should not even be exposed to direct sunlight for a longer amount of time. Adults have been taught about the dangerous rays. If the child will be outside for long, a physician should be consulted to see what is safe for the baby. Babies many times will break out in rashes from any skin care products because of their sensitive skin.
Older children love to have fun at the pool or seaside on a hot, summer day. It is vitally important that their young bodies get maximum protection. SPF 30 provides protection for most of the day. For example if you get sun burn in 10 minutes, SPF 30 will protect you for 300 minutes. If you use SPF 15, you will be protected from the sun for 150 minutes.
The sun’s rays are very dangerous and is a cause of skin cancer. Medical bodies including the American cancer society recommend sunscreens such as sun tan cream because it helps to keep away the possible development of squamous cell carcinoma as well as basal cell carcinoma. Keep in mind that some sunblock products will be washed away or diluted when water is present. The best is to re-apply the product after swimming.
