About Tan Overnight Self Tan Lotion For Safe Tanning To Protect Your Skin

By Haywood Hunter

Sunless tanning lotions have come a long way from the days when such a bronzing was instantly recognizable because people are not usually that shade of orange. Today a careful application of tan overnight self tan lotion can make you look exactly like you have come from a week at the beach - with none of the peeling and itching that exposure to sunlight can cause.

The name alone tells you a lot. The cream, which is tinted to make you instantly look tanner, 'sets' in three hours to a deeper, richer shade of biscuit brown. If you choose, you can apply it, rub it in well, and go to sleep. When you wake in the morning, shower and admire your new look.

Medical authorities stress that direct exposure to sun light and its harmful UV rays damages skin, may cause cancer, and definitely causes aging, wrinkling, and uneven color tone. Using a sunless or self-tanning product means you can get the look without running these risks.

Using lotions with a dark tint makes it easier than ever to get streak-free, overall color. The dark cream allows you to notice areas of lesser coverage so you can even out the application before you rub it in. Go lightly over the tops of your feet, your knees, and your elbows, where the cream absorbs more readily than on the rest of your skin. Wash your hands as soon as you finish to avoid discoloration of your palms, which never darken with natural sun exposure.

It is now possible to find lotions with natural ingredients that are good for your skin, such as vitamin E, aloe vera, and nut and seed oils. To further protect your skin, always wear sunscreen when outside for extended periods. Sunless tanners do not act as sun protection.

Be safe as well as beautiful with a tan overnight self tan lotion. Don't run the risk of over-exposure to UV rays from the sun or the tanning booth when you can get the same natural look in the privacy of your own home.
