Self Tanning Products - Intro

Self-tanning products have come along way from the 'oh-so-orange' body parts, the 'yikes' dark streaks, or the stains in between the fingers. And who can forget about the unmistakable tell-tale odor that came with the color? Honestly, that smell was enough to send everyone screaming back to their old sun worshipping ways or 'do the horizontal' in tanning bed tombs. Ah, . . . but that was then. Now there are newer versions of self tanning products that have not only improved in composition, but have made the application much easier.

There are spray applicators, creams, lotions, even aerosol foams. Some lines offer a few choices in color tones, some give instant color with the application, and by the time it washes off, the self-tanner has done its work. Magic. The instant color type is popular as it shows where the product has been applied. These products work great especially when you want to hide some tan lines or simply colorize yourself. The down side is that the instant color may transfer onto areas where clothing rubs, but hey, nothing is perfect.

Why risk baking in the sun when you don't have to? Although the sun provides a myriad of healthy benefits both physically and emotionally, too much of a good thing is not a good thing at all! But then, we all know this. Stay tuned, we are going to spend a little time looking at some great products on the market that will make your world a whole lot more rosy.
