Why Should I Self-Tan?

Why Should I Self-Tan?

Sunless Tanning Is Safer Than Sun or Tanning Beds

We all know that too much sun exposure can be dangerous, causing skin cancer and premature aging. And while we’re told to use sunscreen to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of the sun, sometimes we just want that bronzed look without having to worry about reapplying sunscreen every few hours. This is where self-tanner comes in! By applying self-tanner, you can get that sun-kissed glow without exposing yourself to harmful UV rays.

It's no secret that prolonged exposure to UV rays is dangerous and damaging, but did you know that tanning beds are actually even worse for you than the sun? That's right— according to the World Health Organization, indoor tanning is classified as a carcinogen, meaning it can cause cancer. So if you're looking for a way to get that summer glow without damaging your skin, self-tanner is definitely the safest and smartest way to go.

Self-Tanning Ingredients Can Be Good for Your Skin

In addition to being the safe choice for a flawlessly tanned look, self-tanner can actually be good for your skin! Most self-tanners contain ingredients like vitamin E and aloe vera, which are known for their hydrating and nourishing properties. And because using self-tanner instead of UV rays to get a tan helps protect your skin from the sun, it can help prevent wrinkles and other signs of premature aging. We also recommend the use of SPF to further protect your skin during UV exposure.

A high-quality self-tanner can also help to mask imperfections on your skin, such as age spots, scars, and spider veins. If you have fair skin, self-tanner can help to even out your skin tone and give you a healthy looking glow. And if you suffer from conditions like psoriasis or eczema, self-tanner can help to camouflage the affected areas so you can uncover your skin without feeling self-conscious.

Self-Tanning Is Part Of Good Self-Care Routine

Taking care of yourself is important, and part of that process is making time for things that make you feel good. For some people, that means taking a relaxing bath at the end of a long day. For others, it means taking a yoga class or going for a run. And for many people, it means applying self-tanner! Taking the time to do something that makes you feel good about your appearance— like giving yourself a fake tan— can help reduce stress and improve your overall mood. So go ahead and give yourself permission to add self-tanner into your self-care routine— you deserve it!

You’ll Feel Confident And Beautiful In Your Self-Tan

Let’s be honest: we all want to look our best. And while there’s nothing wrong with wanting to look good, sometimes we can put too much pressure on ourselves to meet unrealistic standards. If you find yourself comparing your appearance to the airbrushed models in magazines or Instagram influencers with editing apps, it’s time to take a step back and focus on what really matters: feeling confident and beautiful in your own skin.

One way to help boost your confidence is by using self-tanner. Whether you’re getting ready for a big event or just want to feel good about your day-to-day look, a fake tan can give you the confidence boost you need. And when you feel good about yourself, it shows! So try rocking a fake tan this season— you’ll be glad you did.
