The Hazards of Artificial Tanning

If you’re a skin-savvy individual, you’re probably already aware that the sun is not your friend. Our Tacoma botox clinic has discussed the powerful aging effects that comes with soaking up the solar rays. With that in mind, you might be tempted to pursue alternative methods of tanning.

Unfortunately, there’s really no good way to darken your complexion. Tanning beds and sunlamps carry the same destructive power of conventional tanning. Tanning lotions and spray-on tans are reasonably harmless, though they do encourage the wrong type of behavior in that people generally don’t want to mix sunscreen with their tanning lotion. The artificial tan may be offering you some small protection, but it’s nothing compared to a proper SPF sunblock. Lastly, avoid the so-called “tanning pills”; these will turn you orange, and their long-term effects are not yet understood.
