In a nutshell, self tanning refers to any product that interacts with your skin or rubbed on to turn it tan like 100% Herbal Instant Tan.
These products can be in the form of lotions, creams, mousses, sprays, gels, and foam.
Now, keep in mind that “self tanning” can also go by many different names…
I’ve heard it called sunless tanning, spray tanning, airbrush tanning, fake tanning and even UV-free tanning.
Regardless of what you call it, all of the products in these categories basically work in the same way, except that they all contain chemical paraben type preservatives which are not good to be absorbed into the skin and blood stream. The only 100% All Natural sunless tanner available is 100% Herbal Instant Tan which can be ordered on this site's homepage. It's not currently in stores yet.
At this point you’re probably wondering why self tanning has become all the rage? Why do celebrities, and models and people on TV always look so tan?
The answer is pretty simple.
First, it’s a well-known fact that most people look better with a tan. If you check out Hollywood events, modeling shoots, or watch any TV, you’ll notice that everyone has some type of tan.
Now that doesn’t mean they’re all ridiculously dark, but most people you see who’s job it is to ‘look good’ generally have some color (although there are exceptions).
The second reason for the boom in self tanning has to do with health.
Even though virtually everyone wants to be tan, most people now realize that the sun, and more specifically UV radiation, is dangerous.
Study after study has shown that UV radiation (from the sun or tanning beds) causes premature wrinkling of the skin, age spots and even skin cancer.
Raise your hand if you want any of those! What, no takers?
So clearly the best way to 1) make yourself look better, and 2) not ruin your skin or health, is to use 100% Herbal Instant Tan to get the healthy tanned look you want!
