Presentation Transcript

Getting a golden glow doesn’t have to put you at risk for premature aging and skin cancer.

the effect

Self tanners work on the epidermis level of the skin and will only penetrate the upper most level of the epidermis.

short preview

The first sunless tanner product came on the market in 1960 and there have been vast improvements since then.

There are hundreds of types of self tanners available that offer a variety of levels of darkness, some offering just a sun kissed glow, to others that will make your skin look like you just got home from a tropical vacation.

what is dha

Dihydroxyacetone or DHA is the active ingredient in most of the over the counter self tanners.

DHA is actually a colorless sugar that reacts with the dead skin cells causing a reaction and change of color.

self tanners come in different forms
Self tanners come in different forms:

Lotion ~ Spray ~ Gel Formulas


There are also body glows or bronzers available.

These are more of a topical color. They will change your color slightly and will wash off when you are finished, or wear off by the end of the day.

Body glows or bronzers are more like make-up that tint or stain your skin.

  • If you are using a self tanner you will want to apply it after showering.
  • Dry your skin, but not too thoroughly. A little moisture left on your skin will help the self tanner take hold.
  • It is also a good idea to exfoliate your skin before application, especially on the elbows, knees and ankles.
  • Any places where dead skin cells tend to accumulate. This will help to stop dark patches from appearing in these areas.
  • It is also important to wash your hands after application to avoid the palms of your hands from looking colored, or patchy.
  • With a bronzer or body glow you will want to apply them to completely dry skin, just like you would with any other type of make-up or foundation.


Exfoliation is also important when using these types of self tanners.

A bronzer or body glow can cause the same patchy skin appearance that a thicker tanning product can do.

Either product can color or stain clothing or towels.

Make sure that you are wearing clothes that you are not concerned

after application

Self tanner lotions can dry out the skin, giving you further dry patches.

Many recommend that you also moisturize with a regular lotion on top of the self tanner. With a bronzer or body glow there is more moisture in these products.

They often will have an SPF built in and they will keep your skin more moist, then the other self tanners, but they will not last as long.


Both of these products are great, but you have to decide if you want that tan look for today or for the long haul.

Good luck on your self tanning. Always remember to choose according to your skin’s need.
