Over the past few years rather than baking themselves in the sun, people are opting to fake it. With so many fake tanning products available, from instant spray and foam tans to gradual tanning moisturisers, it is easy to achieve a golden glow while protecting your skin from the damaging rays. Gone are the days of rolling around like a rotisserie with the bikini straps pushed down because faking it looks so much better!
For a beautifully even, golden glow this summer it is important to prep and care for your skin properly. Most fake tanning products contain the active ingredient DHA (dihydroxyacetone), which generates its “tanned” colour by chemically reacting with the amino acids in the dead layer (the stratum corneum) of the skin’s surface – making the longevity of any tan only as good as the skin’s underlying hydration levels and overall health.
