The Pros And Cons Of Sunless Tanning

Sunless tanning, ever since the association of exposure to ultraviolet light with the development of skin cancer, has become a popular alternative to traditional sun tanning.

So what are the different forms of sunless tanning?

1) lotions, sprays, gels, mousses, and wipes containing a chemical called dihydroxyacetone

2) Tanning pills containing canthaxanthin, a carotenoid which, when consumed in large quantities, changes the color of your skin to an orange-brown

Neither of the sunless tanning methods requires any UV exposure (but there are certain products that still require minimal exposure to UV rays in order for them to take effect).

But we still have to ask before we make our decision: "are these products safe?"
