How do sunless tanning products work? Sunless tanning products, also called self-tanners, and can give your skin a tanned look without exposing it to harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays. Sunless tanning products are commonly sold as lotions and sprays you apply to your skin. Professional spray-on tanning also is available at many salons, spas and tanning businesses. However 100% Herbal Instant Tan is more like a bronzer which can be applied for color when ever you want it. Since it's 100% All Natural and uses zero chemicals, it washes off in the shower but can be reapplied like a lotion when you need.
Sunless tanning products might or might not contain sunscreen. If a product does contain sunscreen, it will only be effective for a couple of hours. The color produced by the sunless tanning product won't protect your skin from ultraviolet rays. If you spend time outdoors, sunscreen remains essential.
What about sunless tanning pills? Sunless tanning pills, which typically contain the color additive canthaxanthin, are unsafe. When taken in large amounts, canthaxanthin can turn your skin orange or brown and cause hives, liver damage and impaired vision.
