Sun Tanning and Tanning Lotion
Tanning is the process where the color of your skin is darkened as a result of exposure to UV rays from the sun. Your skin actually darkens its color as a result from the melanin that is present in your skin seeking out the suns rays and darkening their pigment to protect the body from damage. So a tan is really the body's own natural way to protect itself. Don't let all the crazies tell you that the Sun is evil, in fact we derive Vitamin D best from the Suns rays. Vitamin D has been shown to help PREVENT certain cancers and diseases. Tanning is like anything else we find in that in moderation it can be a good thing and tanning too much can be a bad thing so educate yourself about tanning and keep yourself healthy.
Tanning Lotion is used to help achieve a sun tan, usually from a tanning bed or booth. Tanning Lotion can really help your skin also because it is usually packed with good things for your skin. Using tanning lotion not only helps you tan but it helps keep your skin moist which is vital for healthy skin. Some tanning lotions have added bronzers to them to help get you some immediate color and some have a tingle which reddens your skin to bring oxygen to the skin which helps in the tanning process. Silicone has become a great ingredient used in many tanning lotions today and really helps keep your skin full of moisture and so very soft.
