Sunless Tanning

by Celes

Welcome to Sunset Sunless Tanning! Here we aim to provide the latest information on healthy tans and skin care discussing topics like airbrush tanning systems to vitiligo. We will tackle health concerns from the hopefully minor white spots from tanning and tinea versicolor to potentially disturbing melanoma symptoms.

Achieving A Beautiful Sunless Tan

Through current natural means, you can achieve a wonderful sunless spray tan in a safe and cost-effective manner. Sunset Sunless Tanning will provide you the knowledge and resources to literally save your skin while achieving a warm, natural-looking glow.

Sunless tanning, which is sometimes referred to as self-tanning, tan extending or UV-Free tanning, involves applying a spray, lotion or cream to your skin to achieve the bronzed skin effect of traditional suntanning. Sunless tanning grew into prominence during the 1960s when researchers discovered and illuminated a distinct correlation between exposure to sunlight and various skin cancers (particularly melanoma). Sunless tanning products soon proved to provide a safe and effective way to bronze skin without damaging or aging it and without the common white spots from tanning.

Improvements In Sunless Tanning

In the past decade, the skin care industry has greatly improved the formulas of these airbrush tanning systems, sunless spray tans and tanning lotions. The addition of antioxidants, such as caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) in the traditional DHA (dihydroxyacetone) formulation has not only shifted the tonality of these sunless tanners to a very natural look, but it has also made them healthy additions to your skin care routine.

The primary ingredient in all the most effective self-tanners or sunless tanning solutions is dihydroxyacetone, widely referred to as DHA. When applied to your skin, DHA combines with amino acids to form the sunless tan. The tan begins to appear around 2 to 4 hours after application, and if unwashed may continue to develop for 24 hours.

With this site, I want to discuss the dangers of suntanning & indoor tanning (with tanning beds), while also illuminating how such dangerous measures are no longer necessary to achieve your desired complexion. I will also review the top self tanning sprays, self tanning lotions and sunless tanning services as I test and evaluate them, providing you links to my favorite sunless spray tan.

Because many people visiting this site will be concerned about the long-term effects of their sunburned skin, I will also tackle some of the more difficult issues of skin cancer and melanoma symptoms.

Please return to Sunset Sunless Tanning often as I plan to slowly add more and more content to this site in the coming months. I hope you find your time spent here worthwhile and I hope you learn to appreciate the safe benefits of airbrush tanning systems, a sunless tanning spray and sunless tanning lotions. The day has come when we can enjoy healthy-looking tans without developing melanoma symptoms or white spots from tanning.

Thank you for visiting and take care of your skin!

Airbrush Tanning Systems

Although many individuals want to have a continual suntan, maintaining such a tan is usually pretty challenging for most people. Depending upon a person’s skin type, he or she might not achieve or maintain the desired color. Instead of spending several weeks or months cultivating your suntan while simultaneously cultivating cancer, airbrush tanning systems allow you to acquire the robust glow of a nice tan even if a person’s skin is especially sensitive to sunshine.

Sunless tanning products function because DHA interacts with proteins and amino acids on your skin surface to bring about a golden brown coloration. This is

White Spots From Tanning

White spots from tanning can occur for a number of reasons. The four primary reasons which I’ll discuss here are pressure points from the positions in which you tan, side-effects of medications, skin fungal infections, and genetics-related or overexposure-related skin pigmentation conditions.

One of the most common and thankfully least dangerous causes of white spots from tanning are pressure points. People relate tanning to relaxing and thus remaining still. So inevitably, their bodies will rest on pressure points where their circulation will be reduced. Locations such your hip bones and shoulder blades tend to develop these sorts of white spots from tanning most often. I suggest rotating and moving more during your tanning. Of course, this is precisely the kind of problem you wouldn’t have if you chose to sunless spray tan rather than baking yourself in the sun or a tanning bed. […]

Sunless Spray Tan

A safe and effective alternative to tanning beds and sun exposure is with the use of a sunless tanning product. Here at Sunset Sunless Tanning, this is one of our favorite methods to achieve a natural warm glow. We are long past the days of fake-looking orange tans. The industry has refined the formula to a degree where proper application leads to natural-looking tans on a consistent basis.

Tans acheived without the use of the sun won’t cause the sagging skin and premature wrinkles you’ll suffer if you tan with beds or with the blazing rays of the sun. And most importantly, a spray tan won’t increase your risk for deadly skin cancer. […]

Tinea Versicolor

If you notice discolored blotches appearing as pink, tan or white spots on your skin — specifically white spots from tanning — it could be from a skin condition known as tinea versicolor. Avoid tanning because this could make it worse instead use sunless tanning products if you want a summer glow, but avoid products that are oily.

Tinea versicolor is a fungal infection of the skin, also sometimes known as pityriasis versicolor. This fungus has an impact on normal pigmentation of the skin, which is why it commonly causes white patches after tanning or spending time in the sun. […]
