Some self tanning methods are much safer than using the sun. They darken the skin just as well as the sun and do not cause as many health problems. In fact, some self tanning agents provide a more convenient and safer method of tanning than the sun.

Of the many self tanning methods, the most popular ones involve the use of: lotions, pills, air brushes and tanning beds. It is important to remember that although these self tanning products are widely used, they are not necessarily safer than the sun, nor are they always recommended. Of all the self tanning methods; lotions and air brushing are probably the two safest methods while the pills and tanning beds often come under fire. Use the information below about the different self tanning methods to make an informed decision about the best self tanning agents and procedures for you.

Lotions: the lotions either work to darken the skin overtime or add a bronze layer to the skin. Skin darkening lotions work on the epidermal layers of the under skin to supposedly increase the production of melanin. The bronzers just add a tan layer and do not change the pigmentation of your skin.These are much more preferred as self tanning agents than the lotions.

Pills: these cause increased secretion of melanin in the skin, just like some tanning lotions. The mechanism of darkening is unclear and therefore the use of pills is not supported by doctors. Also of importance is that the FDA does not endorse the pills available for self tanning.

Air brushing: this is more like a bronzer than anything else. Using an air brush, someone applies a light film of a self tanning agent unto the skin. This gives a natural and effortless tanned look.

Tanning beds: these are the most unsafe to use for self tanning. They cause the emission of ultra violet rays much like the sun and thus are just as unsafe. Many people hence do not recommend their use.

A myriad of self tanning methods exist. It is however the responsibility of the customer to find out their positive and negative effects of all the self tanning agents and methods they want to use. Only choose the ones that will not compromise your health. They will work just as well as those that do.

While there are many different self tanning methods available to look like you have a fake tan – you need to do your research.
