The Truth About Sunless Tanning Lotion
The tanning lotion industry has exploded over the past decade and a half. It’s almost overwhelming to try to determine which is the best product and which to avoid. Luckily, there are some basic ways of wading through all that’s out there, but it all begins with knowing what to look for in a quality sunless solution.
First of all, a few words about DHA. This chemical, as far as we know, is perfectly safe. But I think you have to be careful about thinking it will protect you from the sun. In fact, it will not save your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays, despite what many people think. It is not suntan lotion: it’s tanning lotion. Big difference.
A lot of makers of tanning lotion will try to make you think that they are going to protect you from UV rays. The way to check this out is by reading the package and seeing if it contains avobenzone, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or Helioplex; if it doesn’t have any of these chemicals in its make up, then it is not warding off the sun’s evil rays, despite what kind of claims it may be making on its bottle.

Also keep this in mind: tanning lotion fades off of your skin within about three to five days, so you’ll have to reapply it at that point if you want to keep your fake tan. So make sure you get enough, or that you have a backup bottle if you’re out on vacation where you don’t which stores to go to to get the best deal.
If it happens that you need to get rid of your tan really quickly, and you can’t wait a few days, then you should get some tanning remover. I know that San Tropez Tanning Essentials makes a great product for this. It retails around $17 and is called their Self Tan Remover. If you by mistake turn your hands dark when applying your initial tan, you can use this lotion to lighten up your hands again. In other words, it can be applied to limited areas of the body for specific applications.
So this information should get you started in figuring out which tanning lotion is going to give you the best bang for your buck. Remember: they’re definitely not all made of the same caliber stuff, so you have to do a little research and maybe even experimentation.
