The Benefits of Norvell Sunless Tanning Products
You probably covet that bronzed beach god/goddess look, but if you are at all aware of the many possible consequences of exposure to UV radiation, you know that sunless tanning products are some of the safest options around. Let’s look at the many benefits of sunless tanners:
Any one of us who ever fell asleep in the sun or was unwise about using sun block knows how very painful (to say nothing of now unattractive) sun burn is. Quite simply, sunless tanning products help you avoid painful and disfiguring sunburn.
Studies have proved the link between UV radiation and skin cancer. We know that the risk of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma increases due to excess sun exposure.
The dangers of tanning beds are also well known. The US Public Health Service cautions that the use of sun lamps and sun beds is a known carcinogen. Using a tanning bed frequently is known to triple the risk of melanoma, which is the deadliest form of skin cancer.
It may be argued that the risk of actually developing skin cancer is small and that most cases are treatable. However, it is inarguable that sun exposure causes premature aging of skin. Sunless tanners help you avoid this premature wrinkling and aging of your skin.
And what about those pesky tan lines that you have to deal with after a trip to the beach? Tan lines can be so unattractive! But this problem is also eliminated when you a self tanning product at your leisure in the privacy of your home.
Some of us tolerate our freckles; some of us hate them! Love them or hate them, we know that it is sun exposure that triggers them. With sunless tanning products, you can help make those freckles appear less obvious.
For some of us, it is quite simply impossible to get a natural tan. Sunless tanners are literally the only option.
Consider the convenience of using a self tanning product – a matter of some minutes versus spending hours in the sun or on a sub bed and then waiting some more while the tan ‘develops’.
Using products for a sunless tan is a useful way to cover up the blemishes. Uneven skin tone, scars and even those spider veins are effortlessly hidden from sight.
Another benefit of sunless tanning products is that they allow you to go au naturale. Skip the foundation and the blush and let your smooth, beautifully bronzed skin shine through!
Unless you’re living under a rock, you probably know that “looking tan” is the hottest accessory you can own right now.
And for good reason, just about everyone looks a lot better when then have a little color.
Right or wrong, the pale, white ‘sickly’ look is definitely out!
And because we now know that baking in the sun all day is really bad for our skin, tons of people are turning to spray tanning to get that beautiful bronze glow.
But what exactly is spray tanning? How does it work? How much does it cost? And where do I get it done?
I’m glad you asked… let’s go over each one of those right now!
The Basics of Norvell Spray Tanning
Let’s start at the beginning.
Spray tanning is a form of self tanning (or sunless tanning) where a fine mist is sprayed onto your body.
This mist has an ingredient in it called Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) that interacts with your own skin’s chemistry to turn it tan, or bronze.
This temporary effect generally lasts from 3-7 days and is completely safe for your skin (although it doesn’t provide any protection against the sun’s rays).
The results you can get from tanning sprays are generally very good. Many celebrities and models prefer spray tanning to just about anything else to get the color they want.
Now, the mist can be sprayed from a variety of ‘devices’.
Norvell spray tan is administered with a airbrush or airgun as they’re called.
These look similar to a paint gun that painters use on your house!
Pros of Spray Tanning
If you compare spray tanning to other forms of self tanning products like lotions, creams, gels, and mousses, you’ll definitely see some differences.
But before we go over these differences, keep one thing in mind.
All forms of self tanning and spray tanning use the exact same active ingredient, DHA. But that doesn’t mean you’ll get the same results with any old product that has DHA in it (believe me)!
That said, let’s go over some of the benefits of Sienna X spray tanning.
First and foremost, spray tanning is easy.
Once you’ve prepared, you just go to our tanning salon in Whitchurch, Bristol.
The technician then sprays your entire body with a fine mist. Once you blend it in a little, that’s it, you’re done!
It’s definitely easier and less time-consuming than spreading a lotion or gel all over your body. Plus you or whoever’s applying the spray tend to have more control over where it goes.
Another benefit of spray tanning is the fact that it dries quicker than other self tanning products.
That means it’s less likely to get all over your clothes, your bed, and your partner!
As for the color achieved with spray tanning, that varies from person to person.
Some people like the color and evenness you get with spray tanning, others think self tanning lotions and gels are better.
Because everyone has slightly different skin chemistry, you’ll really need to experiment a bit to see what works best for you.
How To Prepare For Your Spray Tanning Session
If you’re reading this far you’ve probably decided to go ahead and give spray tanning a chance!
Good for you!
Before you head off to the salon, here’s a few tips you should follow to ensure that you get an even, beautiful tan.
1. Make sure you shave or wax before your appointment.
A lot of people say to do it a day or two before (so your pores close).
2. Be sure to exfoliate your skin the day before your appointment.
Based on the way self tanners work, it’s important to slough off as much dead and dry skin as possible before applying any self tanner or tanning spray. Just trust us, you’ll get a better result!
3. Try to remove moisturizers, makeup and deodorant before you spray tan.
These products contain ingredients like oils that can make it hard for the main ingredient in self tanning spray to bind to your skin. This could cause your spray tan to look streaky and blotchy. You don’t want that!
4. Try to keep the spray tan solution on overnight and don’t put on any moisturizer until the next day.
That means no showering, using soap, or any moisturizer for at least 8 hours. You could shrink that time down a little, but you won’t get the best results if you do. The color starts to develop within an hour or two and really kicks in within 3-5 hours.
