Sun tan and indoor tanning- where the difference lies!
Natural tan is responsible for giving you bad skin and wrinkles. This is due to extensive loss of moisture from your skin. Your skin dries and you get wrinkles. On the other hand, indoor tanning lotions are meant to give you moisture and give your skin – an attractive look.
Genetic disturbance and antioxidants
Natural tans are results of genetic alternations. Your skin gets exposed to the UV rays and you get your skin tone changed. Indoor tanning lotions consist of antioxidants that fight against the tanning alternations.
Skin cancer issue
It is a research based fact that people staying under sunlight –more than 4-5 hours continuously are at high risk of skin cancers and tumors, due to dry skin. On the other hand, people who use tanning lotions while tanning get their skin nourished and moisturized, so no dryness occur.
Tanning lotions are oil free in nature. So, your skin pores don’t clog and remain open
