Summer is coming! This brings to mind endless beach days, drinking smoothies by the pool, and dinner parties celebrated with long balmy nights.
It also means that we are all searching for the perfect summer time “glow” in order to feel confident in our hottest seasonal attire and bikinis. However, trying to achieve a tan “the old fashioned way” by spending hours laying in the sun has many detrimental and long term health risks. In fact, according to the US Department of Heath and Human Services, “there is no such thing as a safe sun tan, as the increase in skin pigment, called melanin, which causes the tan colour change in your skin, is a sign of damage”. This can cause life long problems such as skin cancer, premature ageing (early wrinkles!) and eye complications.
By choosing to use a fake tanning product over spending hours in the sun to achieve that “glow”, you will not only save time and sunburnt skin, but will achieve an instant and natural looking tan, while simultaneously nourishing your skin. What’s more, by choosing an organic tanning brand who’s products contain no synthetic ingredients and harmful chemicals will help you avoid cancers and nasty skin diseases.
Organic skincare experts Zuii Organic have recently launched their newest Flora Self Tanning range, which contains a unique combination of ingredients such as Bamboo Juice, Raw Cacao and Grape Skin Extract to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. The self tanning foam is lightweight, unscented and easy to apply and promises to glide on effortlessly to deliver a bronzed tan for up to 10 days.
So before you head out into the sun this summer, consider your skin health first and make the organic fake tan choice! We are sure you won’t regret it!
