Get The Skin Of Your Dreams With Sun Lab

By Haywood Hunter

As the atmosphere deteriorates, and the UV rays become more dangerous it has become impossible to sit outside and sunbathe in order to get a healthy looking tan. Today, sunbathing in the traditional way can create skin cancer or at the very least, bad sun burn, and it has become necessary to wear sunscreen at all times to avoid this. Sun Lab have therefore developed other ways of getting a healthy looking, tanned body without the help of the great star that lights the day.

One can choose from many different kinds of products to darken the skin tone. Sometimes dyes are used to create the darker skin. Some women will use a bronzer which is a temporary cosmetic which easily washes away.

Some people use creams and lotions and sprays to create the tanned effect. Most beauty salons or spas boast that they have sunbeds which is a pod where special lights are turned on under and over the body, which creates the tanned look. One of the most effective products that one can use is tanning spray.

One can obtain the spray from many sources. One can even have the tanning sprayed on professionally using tanning booths at salons and spas. Basically, it's a combination of chemicals that is sprayed onto the body at close range which makes the cells go brown.

The strength of the spray will depend on the client's choice on how dark they wish to go. If one is going to obtain a self-tanning spray, one can also buy the product and apply it at home. Some products don't even need to be applied by hand so that the hands don't look darker than the rest of the body as it was the means of application.

The spray that is used is not a dye or a color. It is a combination of chemicals the active ones being Dihydroxyacetone and erythrulose which are chemicals that react with the stratum corneum which is the outer layer of dead skin cells that protect the epidermal layers beneath. Both DHA and Erythrulose are substances that react in the same way to the skin cells that when applied, the dead skin cells are burned and turn brown. Erythrulose is a substance that is a keto sugar based substance that reacts with the keratin protein on the out layer of the skin. Dihydroxyacetone is a substance that reacts with the amino acids of the outer layer of the skin.

Erythrulose is known to be a substance that develops at a slower rate than DHA and it can take up to 48 hours to develop. It is also known to fade faster than DHA which is why DHA is used in addition to Erythrulose. This substance has a faster development period and it takes longer to fade. When used together, the effect is that there is an immediate tan which can last up to 10 days.

Sun Lab are the developers of these effective self-tanning solutions. They also produce effective sunscreen products which will protect the body from the UVB and UVA rays that are produced in the atmosphere. This organization advocates the use of artificial tanning solutions rather than sunbathing because it is much better for the skin's health.
