A sun-kissed body does not only improve one's self-esteem, it also decreases the appearance of cellulite on skin. By using self tanners, it is possible to achieve beautiful tan without risking sunburns or other dangerous and harmful effects of UV rays from artificial tanning bulbs or the sun. Self-tanner is also a less expensive option than that of artificial tanning beds and booths.

Function

Self tanner allows one to get a bronzed look that appears like actual tan without harming skin with UV radiation. A number of advanced tanning products are available in market and most of them contain mild ingredients that react with the upper layer of skin or epidermis to produce a natural and tanned glow. Self tanning can be done by individuals at home although professional applications of sunless tanning products are also available.

Types

Self tanners are available in the form of lotions, airbrush sprays, moisturizers, tan foams, body polishers and accelerator gels. Self tanning sprays and lotions are considered to be most effective type of sunless tanning application. These products contain dihydroxyacetone as an active ingredient. Dihydroxyacetone is a colorless sugar that produces color changing effect upon its reaction with skin's dead cells.

Working

Dihydroxyacetone present in self tanners dry the skin temporarily in order to create a color changing effect. There are different types of self-tanners available and most of them are fairly easy to apply. However, it is important to take necessary precautions while using tanning products.

Benefits

Prolonged exposure to sun rays or tanning beds can increase risk of skin cancer. In fact, those who have fair skin are at a greater risk of getting sunburns and skin cancer. Self tanners allow one to have healthy tanned look without putting their skin at health risk.

Warnings

Though self tanners have amazing benefits over artificial tanning beds and other tanning options, it also has some downsides. Self tanners may cause streaks on skin. In order to avoid this problem, it is important to use only high quality self tanners.
