The Top Way to Tan this Summer

The Top Way to Tan this Summer

We’re in the midst of a heat wave here in the UK and whilst it may be oh-so-tempting to stretch out in the garden, under the blazing sun to top up your tan, have you stopped to think about the damage it could do to your skin?

To put it bluntly, ultraviolet rays from the sun are the number one cause of skin cancer – a disease that no one wants. Not only that but they can also cause premature ageing of the skin and at a time where we’re battling wrinkles with anti-ageing serums and treatments, sun exposure seems rather counterproductive, don’t you think?

The safest way to achieve a healthy glow

Whilst many of us crave sun-kissed skin and a golden glow for summer, when you consider the dangers of the sun’s harmful UV rays, it’s just not worth the risk. Luckily, there is a much safer and healthier way to get that bronzed goddess look – a spray tan!

Spray tanning is easy

There are numerous benefits to having a spray tan this summer – the first being that it’s super easy, especially if you head to a professional salon! That way there is no work involved on your part (or messy tanning oils and lotions to deal with) and you can have the peace of mind of a streak-free tan.

Instant results

Another benefit to spray tanning is that the results are practically instantaneous – there’s no need to spend a week in the sunshine or on a tanning bed, your tan will begin developing immediately and intensify throughout the day. This is particularly great if you’ve got a last minute event to attend!

You’re in control

Did you know that spray tans are also great for achieving a more even skin tone? Book an appointment at a professional salon and they will be able to recommend the right spray tan colour to suit you and help you achieve the desired results. Spray tanning offers a lot more control over coverage than other methods of tanning and also allows you to camouflage any blemishes or uneven pigmentation areas, if required.

Confidence booster

Many women feel more confident with a tan and more comfortable going makeup-free! Bypassing the foundation and concealer for a few days will give your skin a chance to breathe and help it feel rejuvenated.

Great for the skin

Speaking of skin rejuvenation; some spray tanning products, like Sienna X, which I use in my salon, also contain skin-conditioning ingredients that work wonders at moisturising and protecting the skin. Clients often comment on how soft and smooth their skin feels after a spray tan – the same which can’t be said about skin that’s been exposed to the sun all day!
