Whether the weather is hot or not, you want to look your best. Some girls and guys look good with medium skin tone, some look good with a light complexion, but you want to look your best and you look absolutely amazing with a nice tan. However, it may be the rainy season or it may be snowing outside. You have no idea how you'll get your tan on if this keeps up. Do not worry, that's where the tan accelerator comes in.
What's a tan accelerator? It's a great supplement, either to a tanning bed or a naturally sunny day. It increases the amount of melanin (the pigment protein that produces darker skin) that your body produces in a defensive reaction to the sun's harmful UV rays. Without even using sunscreen, your body attempts to block out these UV rays by producing more melanin to protect you; though, sun screen is advisable as your body can not produce enough melanin to completely protect you and this is what lead to bad sun burns or, in some cases, skin damage or skin cancer.
What does it look like? In most cases, it comes in either a pill form or as a lotion. It helps your body produce more melanin naturally, making you tan faster. It can consist of one of these two ingredients, though it may sometimes be both:
Psoralen and tyrosine are both amino acids that stimulate and encourage the production of melanin in your body. What does that mean? They make you tan much faster than you would naturally. Take into consideration, however, that both of these are not FDA approved. That means that they may prove to be harmful as they are not given the government's stamp of approval.
If it does not have the FDA's approval, is it really that dangerous? Probably not. As long as you wear a decent amount of sun screen, you'll be protected. However, the saying goes that all things should be taken in moderation. Do not go tan crazy and sunbathe with only the tan accelerator and no sun screen as this could prove to be quite harmful for your body. Always be cautious and protective of your body. No matter how beautiful your tan looks, the risks associate with being out in the sun for too long without sun screen or sun block are much too high to risk it for that extra little kick of melanin.
Is beach season rearing its head around the corner? Do not go unprepared. Get a head start with a sun bath or a tanning booth session using some tan accelerator. You'll look absolutely stunning in your bikini and your friends will envy you when you have such a beautiful tan body. Just make sure to protect yourself with sun block.
