Studies show over 80% of people want a tanned complexion. Many people turned to tanning salons for tanning but there is a lot of evidence that tanning beds can be hazardous. I read that, "Baking under their artificial lamps as little as once a month can boost your risk of a deadly form of skin cancer by 55% -- and the danger is even greater when done in early adulthood." That explains why, sunless tanning has been identified as one of the fastest growing trends today.
"The Sunless Store" was created by salon owners to meet all your tanning needs without the hazards of UV rays from the sun and tanning beds. The Sunless Store products can give you a "gorgeous, healthy glow at any time of the year."
HOW DOES SPRAY TANNING WORK?
"The sunless tanning industry recognizes DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) as the colorless sugar that makes the magic happen in the self tanning process. The active 'tanning' ingredient DHA is a simple carbohydrate. It’s often derived from plant sources such as sugar beets and sugar cane. DHA reacts chemically with the amino acid groups, which are part of the protein containing keratin layer on the skin surface, forming a brown color to the skin... In the 1970’s the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) added DHA permanently to their list of FDA approved cosmetic ingredients... The tan gradually fades as the dead skin cells slough off, just as in a normal tan."
Here is just a few of the products they offer that sound intriguing.
