I love Sun Bum because not only does it smell AMAZING [like a tropical vacation] and I’m a sucker for their cute packaging, but they feel great on your skin. They carry every number of SPF and even baby sunscreen too, plus you can get after sun products too like aloe spray and after-sun lotion. I love that they have everything you need, all in one place. So be a beach bum with me and give Sun Bum a try, I think you’ll love it too.
Best Tanning Oil to get a Deep Dark Sun-kissed Glow from Outdoor
Getting a deep dark tan taking a dip in the pool or lake, or walking through the beach is a dream of many. Although outdoor tanning is the natural way for tanning and far cheaper than tanning beds, it is prone to cause painful sunburns and dry, itchy skin if not done in the right direction.
What is Tanning oil?
Tanning oils are a blend of naturally occurring ingredients that are vital for the skin. They work best if you have a base tan or your skin is not that fair.
In my professional career, one key thing I noticed is that most tanners are layman when it comes to tanning products. That’s why most salons charge them a hell lot of money for cheaper lotions.
I have seen that people confuse tanning lotions with oils. Let me tell you that unlike the commonly found tanning lotions, tanning oil is something similar but entirely different.
Tanning oils provide the natural nutrients which your skin requires during the tanning process. Most oils also have a natural SPF content, which protects your skin from any excess damage the sun might cause. These oils promote the production of melanin to get a tan without having to absorb all the UV rays.
It’s always good to understand how does tanning oil work. But, let me give you a short overview of what common tanning oils have:
Contain antioxidants to prevent your skin from damage under the sun.
Have anti-aging elements to prevent your skin from developing wrinkles and scars under the sun
Possess anti carcinogenic ingredients to avoid any potential cancers from forming on your body. Surprisingly, prolonged UV exposures can promote melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.
Provide vital nutrients to your skin that are usually being used up by the body during tanning, e.g. vitamin E, copper etc.
Speed up the tanning process by naturally triggering melanin production. Excess melanin is what gives you a tan, and tanning oils make sure it gets produced without having to absorb extra UV rays.
Give your skin a short natural tanned look if you’re in a hurry or otherwise. You will get this from any bronzers present inside the oil.
Keep your skin moisturized and hydrated. Lack of moisture will make your skin dry out and develop blisters. No one wants that in place of a tan.
With all of this information, tanning oil can get mistaken for sunscreen too, but I assure you they are also different
Sun bum has all the qualities of a good moisturizer. Apart from the moisture, it also provides relatively cool protection from the harmful UV rays. You can spend hours in the sun without noticing any burns or reactions in your skin.
As for the composition, it does have natural oils to give it more nutrition. These include Coconut Oil, Avocado oil and more I can count on.
Here’s something new for you! Do you have an allergy to a certain product or substance? More specifically, people suffer from a skin disorder called dermatitis herpetiformis (DH). In most of the cases, this develops because of the involvement of a protein called gluten. In most tanning oils, gluten would indirectly be an ingredient because of the saturated proteins. Sun bum tanning oil, however, is gluten-free. That should be good news to all of us since those who don’t develop any allergies are also at risk if the gluten is in excess. This, combined with all the essential oils provide you with the most hypoallergenic (unlike to cause allergy) tanning oil for your fair skin.
