Sunless Tanning


Welcome to Sunset Sunless Tanning! We aim to provide the latest information on healthy tans, from airbrush tanning systems to the wonders of a simple sunless tanning spray. We will tackle health concerns from the hopefully minor white spots from tanning 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!

Vitiligo Disease


So what exactly is Vitiligo Disease? Besides having several names (vitiligo disease or just vitiligo; leukoderma or leucoderma), we don’t know as much about it as one would hope.

Since we have some clinical definitions that won’t make sense to most people and yet at the same time we don’t have a real strong understanding of why it occurs, let me start with some examples of some ways vitiligo disease may be misdiagnosed so that at least you can understand what vitiligo is not.

Vitiligo Treatments


Vitiligo Disease manifests itself through an odd and irregular pale pigmentation of the skin. It is estimated to occur to approximately 1 to 2 percent of the total population. Unlike some people might stereotype, it can occur to anyone of any race, gender or ethnic background. Currently, research indicates it may be caused by a combination of genetic, autoimmune and environmental factors.

It most commonly begins in early adulthood and first appears on extremities (fingers and toes). Despite its irregular pattern, it often appears in symmetrical manner. […]

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. […]

Melanoma Symptoms


Even though melanoma is one of the rarer skin cancers, it causes a vast majority of skin cancer related deaths. Melanoma is a malignant tumor which results from overgrowth of skin pigment cells called melanocytes. It can also occur in your bowels and in your eyes, but it is much more common on the skin and so that specific type of melanoma will be the focus of this article.

While genetic predisposition can also have a hand in developing symptoms of melanoma, the major contributor to developing this type of cancer is ultraviolet radiation, frequently referred to as UV Rays. The main source of UV radiation is, of course, the sun. However, tanning beds are becoming more and more common and thus are contributing more and more to this […]
