Did You Know There Are Health Benefits to Sunless Tanning? March 20, 2018

Did You Know There Are Health Benefits to Sunless Tanning?, Stillwater, Oklahoma

According to the CDC, it takes the sun’s rays only 15 minutes to damage skin. They can also cause premature aging, skin cancer, and cataracts. So what can you do if you want a healthy-looking glow without the harmful effects? Sunless tanning is a great alternative to traditional and indoor bronzing. Here are some of the health benefits it offers.

Health Benefits of Sunless Tanning

1. No UV Damage

Sunless tanning stains the skin using an ingredient called dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA can be applied through spray tan machines, self-tanning lotions, or with airbrushing machines. This product doesn’t damage the skin, so there’s no premature aging or increased risk of cancer. 

2. Better Sun Protection Habits

These practices include using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, being mindful of how much time you spend outside, covering up, and looking for shady areas to sit in between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the summer.

3. Feel & Look Good

Research has shown using a sunless tanning bed could enhance your mood by increasing your endorphin levels, just as traditional bronzing does. Additionally, having a beautiful glow will increase your confidence. With higher self-esteem, you’ll be more likely to have positive interactions with others and feel mentally healthy.
