Bottle or bed? 3 reasons spray tanning is healthier than sun exposure
Tanning is an undeniably popular business, with most of us wanting a lit-from-within, golden holiday glow throughout the year. If you live in the UK, however, you'll know that it isn’t always possible to get a healthy colour on our rainy little island. When the sun does come out, it's not a good idea to sit in it all day and expose yourself to potentially harmful UV rays.
Tanning beds, which gained popularity in the 1970s, omit similar rays, that customers bake under for up to 10 minutes to achieve that just-got-back-from-my-summer-holidays look, and while they might do that, they’re also pretty bad for you.
In this post, we’re going to talk about a few ways in which spray tans are much healthier for you than options like outdoor tanning and sunbeds, which involve exposure to UV rays.
No harmful UV rays
The main reason we believe you should opt for a spray tan is that there is absolutely 0 exposure to harmful UV rays, which can cause premature ageing, including wrinkles and sunspots, and sunburn. According to The Skin Cancer Foundation, “There is no such thing as a safe or healthy tan. UV radiation is proven to contribute to the development of skin cancer.” Yikes. What’s worse, is that exposure to UV rays is cumulative, meaning that even if you don’t burn or notice any changes in your skin at all after exposure, it still all adds up and increases your risk of getting skin cancer over time.
With spray tans, there’s no sitting out in the sun for hours to build up colour. Simply pick the shade that’ll work best for you and your skin tone, spray it on and you’re set! You don’t need to sit in the hot sun for hours, sweating and becoming dehydrated, just to build up a good colour.
More control over your tan
With spray tanning, you have control over every aspect of the process. From choosing the perfect shade for your colouring to getting perfectly even coverage, spray tanning gives you full control over where you’re tanned, and how dark you go.
So there you go – it’s a bit of a no-brainer really. Spray tanning is easily the safest, quickest and most reliable way to get an all-over, patchless, bikini-line free golden glow. Take a look at our range of products today to achieve the glowing skin of your dreams.
