If you do not want to spend endless hours in the sunlight, you must consider getting a skin tan using sunless tanning methods. In the sunless tanning method your skin gets tanned in a climate controlled environment. This may be done through a range of different ways. There are a number of popular ways to get a sunless tan like sunless tanning beds, sunless tanning pills, sprays, lotions and powders etc. The level of safety and efficiency of each of these methods is varied.
In order to understand the concept of suntan in a better way, we must first know what a suntan exactly is and how do you get it. The sun emits three different types of ultraviolet radiations. These are the UVA, UVB and UVC. The UVB is the easiest to protect against but UVA rays may not be handled as easily. Both of them have their own effects on the human skin.
The sunless tanning methods use the same principle. They bombard our body with controlled amount of radiation and the result of course is a tan. Please note that not all the sunless tanning methods are safe for everyone. It is therefore recommended to consult a dermatologist to find out which type of sunless tanning method you should use.
