Getting a good tan can be very difficult, particularly when you’re living in a place like the UK, but it can often give a vitalising look for your skin which is greatly desired by many.
To get a tan, you, of course, need to get some UV rays, but with the huge number of scare stories out there about too much UV exposure, and its relation to cancer, is it really worth the risk? There are other options for getting a tan, such as using a fake tan solution. You can also just get some real sun exposure instead of using a sun-bed; as the sun is less intense than spending thirty minutes in a sun-bed, you are exposed to less risk of cancer.
It is important that, when you use tan creams, you read the directions correctly, and check the ingredients for any allergy causing ingredients. You may also want to check up the latest health studies of the individual products, as they can be dangerous by themselves, particularly when not used as directed.
