Why Is Self-Tanning So Popular?

 Hey Cats, 

There is no doubt about it; having a tan instantly makes people feel better. It gives a healthy glow, which is desired by all! Therefore, it really is no surprise that there has been a massive boom in the popularity of tanning products over the past few years or so.

Of course, the English Rose is a beautiful look in itself, yet a lot of people feel more confident once they have bronzed skin. So, why has self-tanning become so popular?

First and foremost, the most obvious advantage of self-tanning lotion is that you will look great! A soft sun-kissed tan makes an individual look fresh, revitalized, and healthy. A tan can also help to disguise unwanted scars on the skin, such as pesky stretch marks. There is no better way to give yourself a boost than by having gorgeous glowing skin.


However, this is not the only reason why so many people love to use self-tan. One of the best things about it is that self-tan can be applied in the comfort of your own home. A lot of women do not like the thought of using tanning beds or going for a spray tan because they will have to get practically naked in front of people they don’t know. This can be daunting, especially when half the women in the tanning shops tend to look like models. Oh… and the paper underwear they make you wear isn’t exactly the most flattering garment in the world! Nevertheless, you do not have to worry about any of this when applying self-tan yourself.

Appearance and privacy are not the only benefits associated with using a self-tanning lotion. Another benefit is that it is the most cost-effective method of fake tan. A bottle of self-tan lotion will last you for a lengthy period of time and so it is much cheaper than going to a salon for a spray tan or for frequent sunbeds. 

A final point worth noting is that there are no health risks associated with using a self-tanning lotion. As we are sure you know, sunbeds and actual tanning can be dangerous, and therefore if you want to protect your skin then a self-tanning lotion is the best way to go.

However, just because self-tanning is kinder to the skin does not mean you should take this for granted. You need to choose products with care. Always check out the ingredient list to make sure they are kind to your skin.

Aside from this, you need to make sure your skin gets all of the nutrients and hydration it needs to stay healthy. This is where a good moisturiser comes in, and Colorscience has an excellent selection for you to choose from. Brands like this carefully design their products with natural, healthy ingredients, which are beneficial to the skin. 

All in all, it is not hard to see why self-tan is such a popular option. When will you be buying your bottle? Either way, there is no denying that this is the safest way to get a tan.
