Natural Sun Tan Using Sun Labs

By Haywood Hunter

Skin is the biggest body organ, and for centuries, cosmetics were used to enhance this beautiful part of everyone. In 1983, Sun Labs went down to business to develop the best skin products. Using only safe and natural ingredients, it boasts of healthy alternative solution to getting darker bronze tone. Dedicated work created the lines of products that are the best in its category today.

This company has been successful in addressing the tanning difficulty especially by light skinned persons. With stringent standard and using botanical ingredients, it has now been safe to get a beautiful darker tone. Even without being exposed to the damaging effect of the sun.

While it is healthy, too much sun causes many skin flaws like freckles, age spots, red rough patches, spider veins, wrinkles and makes it look dry, loose and leathery. This is because UV exposure disables self-healing and stops collagen production while depleting it. Collagen is the protein fiber that gives strength to the external structure of cells, and also gives cell its stuffing. This and keratin provides the skin with strength, flexibility, and resilience. Elastin production is also impaired. This is the elastic protein that makes tissues spring back to its original shape after being stretched.

Another effect would be aging. Although it is a natural process and everyone is not exempted to it, nature and nurture both play a part to make it happen. Because nature is dictated by genetic make-up, nurture is the only thing that can be manipulated. Nurture would either help it or delays it. Therefore, it is wise to be protected and to know what skin care products are beneficial and those that are harmful.

The biggest setback of sun tanning is over-exposure to the damaging effect of this energy source, typically the skin cancer. This condition is common among people who are light skinned. Not every symptoms are alike, but generally, ulcers may appear without getting healed, some spots of the skin may look discolored, or a mole has been deformed.

For a long time, light skin tone symbolizes aristocracy until the end of Victorian Era. It was in 1920 that the famous French fashion designer Coco Chanel got a sun burn travelling in some parts of France, who then got positive feedback for sporting the new tanned look. Meanwhile, a promising French singer who has caramel skin tone, by the name of Josephine Baker, soared to popularity. Her healthy dark tone was well appreciated and getting sun tan has become the new fad.

Decades later, sun bathing became a fad. Bikini swimsuits started to be used in the 1940's and baby oil was applied to facilitate faster darkening of tones. It is interesting to note that before 1920, darker tones were looked down as a farmer's or worker's color, as an effect of frequent outdoor exposure. It was the height of Victorian Era that the elite were predominantly light skinned as compared with the working class.

Getting a wonderful dark tone can be healthy with the many products of this company. One particular product much loved by Hollywood celebrities and professional tanning salons is the tinted self tanners. Some other popular products are the handheld semi-professional sunless tanning equipment, and roll-on self tanners among others.

For those who really love the sun, Sun Labs have products that take care of the skin exposed to UV lights like the Tan Moisturizer Maintainer. It is safe to apply its products as often as one wants, including the sun-less tanning formulas. All of them are made from all natural ingredients.
