People are slaves to fashion. And fashion dictates that a sun tanned face and body looks far healthier and sexier than a pale and pasty white complexion which apparently never sees the sun.
Nevertheless the process of acquiring a suntan requires spending a lot of idle time exposing one’s body to direct solar radiation. This too is problematical as unless one is on vacation not many people have that much idle time. Secondly it is advisable to use sun protection as unless one is very careful the sun burns and the skin become red and painful. Which is almost the precise opposite of what one is trying to achieve. Plus the red then peels off and looks unsightly, in extreme cases leading to scarring.
People who work out in the sun gain sunburned complexiony7s which become tough and wrinkly at a fairly early age. Japanese farm workers in specific wear bonnets and hats and cover their arms and hands if possible to avoid this effect. But generally people who are exposed to the sun everyday will have darker sunburned complexions which may look great while young but don’t age well.
And then of course there is the danger of sunburn causing skin cancers, which does happen and is still a real killer. Melanomas are one of the worst forms of cancer with a very poor prognosis.
It then become a relatively ludicrous situation where we use hi-solar protection factor creams and lotions to protect us and stop us burning so we remain pale and white while we desire to actually become tanned so we sit in the sun. Of course if we have enough time we do become brown which soon fades away or peels off when we return to our normal lives of working indoors by day and usually only seeing the sun for brief periods on the week end.
So the solution is often to use Sunless Tanning products which enables self tanning without exposure to the sun. There are many products available which the good folk at Sun Laboratories in Chatsworth California promote on their website. It is from here, under the California Sun that the need was seen over 25 years ago and their constant developments, innovations and new formulations has made Sun Laboratories products popular all over the world.
The range is vast. Most popular are the sunless tanning and other self tanning products which come as lotions applied by a mitt or as a spray for a more even application. Then there are airbrush tanning sprays for use in professional tanning booths.
Some of the special offers include the training mitt system which includes and exfoliating body scrub before the application of the dark self tanner with a fiber tanning mitt and a micro spray to even it out with a lotion to extend the life of the tan. There is a beach bag set for the sun goddess doing sunless tanning and many more.
