6 x FABLES ABOUT SELF-TANNERS

Published at: 17 November 2021

More and more people are making the transition from going to the sun to self-tanning. Sensible, because sunshine is nice, but it has a big impact on your skin. You would rather treat your skin in a responsible tan with the products of MARC INBANE.

Do you still find the step to a self-tanning exciting? No need for anything: all fables revealed!

ALL FABLES ABOUT SELF TANNING EXPLAINED
 

1. GIVES YOUR SKIN AN ORANGE COLOR

Luckily not! That is, if you use the MARC INBANE tanning products. In our Natural Tanning Spray, we deliberately do not use carotene. This ingredient provides an orange color in many tanning sprays. With us you don't have to worry about the well-known orange effect.

2. MAKES YOUR HAIR ORANGE

Our products have no effect on your hair, eyebrows, eyelashes or beard. Yet it sometimes happens that someone gets orange hair or eyebrows. This only happens if the hair has been bleached shortly before, causing a reaction with peroxide. So ensure at least one wash between bleaching and tanning.

3. ENSURES MORE PIGMENTS SPOTS ON YOUR SKIN

Tanning products do not cause pigmentation. It may be that your existing dark pigmentation spots become a little darker due to the self-tanner. Tip: coat these pigment spots with Vaseline before tanning so that they are shielded from the product. Lighter pigment spots do not disappear due to a self-tanner, but often stand out less because of the beautiful glow.

4. MAKES YOUR SKIN EARLY OLDER

There are stories going around that self-tanning would cause the skin to produce more free radicals, which is linked to skin aging. Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) in self-tanning agents can indeed make the skin produce more free radicals for a short time (24 hours). Fortunately this effect can be absorbed well by using the self-tanner more than 24 hours before tanning and not spending too much time in the sun the day after tanning. With a sun cream that is rich in antioxidants, you protect your skin against the increased number of radicals. One last tip: never use your tanning product for a long time. Always give your skin a few days' rest.

5. DO NOT GO IN THE SUN

What a myth! You can go well in the sun with a self-tanner. A tanning product only has an effect on the upper skin layer with dead skin cells: these disappear from your skin after a few days and so your complexion also disappears. A self-tanner has no influence on your pigment, while the natural tanning process in the sun does. This allows you to combine a self-tanner and the sun perfectly. Always make sure you have a good sun factor when you go into the sun, because a self-tanner does not protect you against the sun.

6. LEAVES STAINS AND STRIPES ON YOUR SKIN

The tanning products from MARC INBANE rarely cause spots and streaks on the skin, since we explain how to best apply the product. Preferably you use our Glove or Brush for an ultimate smooth end result.
