The importance of using tanning creams


The key to having a tan that lasts as long as possible is having well moisturised skin and using tan extenders also known as tanning creams and accelerator’s.


Your skin is constantly regenerating and as the dead skin cells slough off on a daily basis, keeping your skin well moisturised ensures a longer lasting, deeper tan.


Some tanning creams contain cosmetic bronzers and small amounts of fake tan to enhance the colour you have achieved. Some even help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By supplying your skin with much needed vitamins, minerals, amino acids and moisture, these lotions can help you tan up to 67% better than using no lotion at all.


A tan extender not only keeps a tan for longer, but helps to develop a tan. Not just through bronzers or fake tan in the lotion, but dry skin actually reflects light, resulting in a tan that is shallow and fades quickly as the skin cells slough off. Moisturised skin absorbs light and the tan develops more quickly and lasts longer.
