If you want not only to be known, but also to be successful in this life, take care, first of all, of your skin. It is a sure source of information about health and your greatest wealth. This is well known all over the world. That is why clean, radiant, tanned skin is always regarded as evidence that everything is in order with your health, personal life, and well-being.
A few decades ago, the only way to achieve tanned skin was to lie in the sun for many hours. Needless to say, this often led to serious skin problems. If, for example, you have thin, sensitive skin, sunbathing will inevitably lead to burns, cracks and other extremely unpleasant things.
Later, solariums appeared, but artificial tanning did not free women, and they are the vast majority among visitors to solariums, from all problems. After all, the fact is that both on a natural beach and in a solarium, your body is under ultraviolet radiation. And this is far from always and not for everyone useful. Unfortunately, it happens that a visit to the solarium turns into a spoiled mood at best. And at worst, health problems, when age spots spoil your skin for a long time, stubbornly resisting treatment.
There is another way – self-tanning. But it does not have as many advantages as it might seem.
So how to give your skin the desired golden, or even chocolate shade?
A gift from Hollywood
He came to us from the USA, a country where the beauty and health industry is developed like nowhere else in the world. It was Hollywood actors and actresses who were the first to adopt a new method of cosmetic procedures in the struggle for unfading beauty – instant tanning. Nowadays, this cosmetic procedure is offered by many salons not only in capital cities. And the demand for it is growing.
What is it? Let’s make a small digression into biology. Tanned skin owes its beautiful golden color to melanin, a dark pigment that forms in its upper layer under harmful ultraviolet rays. The trick is that this can be achieved with the help of special natural ingredients with direct exposure to the skin, without ultraviolet radiation. Back in the last century on the American continent, scientists created the technology of instant tanning without the participation of ultraviolet rays. Special equipment was developed and created for applying a product to the body that provides the skin with a tanned look.
A perfectly even bronze skin tone is obtained when a special lotion is applied to the body in the form of a spray. Its active ingredient is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). It is obtained from the roots of sugar cane, so sometimes this tan is called cane tan. During the procedure, dihydroxyacetone reacts with the amino acids of the outer layer of the skin. As a result of this process, melanin is formed, the same one that provides a natural shade of tan.
Isn’t it dangerous?
The advantages of an instant tan are that it is suitable for all skin types, practically does not cause allergies, because the spray that irrigates the skin consists of natural substances. There are no contraindications even for children and pregnant women. The harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation are excluded. The instant tanning lotion contains: dihydroxyacetone – an extract from sugar cane, glycerin to soften and moisturize the skin, hyaluronic acid, which restores the elasticity of the skin, jojoba and grape seed oil, caramel color, green and white tea extract, seaweed, water . In addition, vitamins A, B, C and D, which are part of the spray lotion, heal the skin, moisturize and tone it. They also prevent the formation of free radicals. Moreover, the spray narrows enlarged pores, hiding defects. At the same time, the skin is strengthened with proteins, helping to produce elastin and collagen, due to which it acquires a healthy tone and radiant appearance.
By resorting to an instant tan, we can change our image in a matter of hours, turning into a stylish, self-confident woman who follows fashion and takes care of herself.
