In simple terms, tanning is the method adopted by the skin to protect itself from UV of sun.

In order to prevent such a situation, you may apply any of the popular organic tanning products on the skin. The tanning products act as a shield to protect the skin from UV of the sun.
Do not go for chemical based tanners:
Tanning products are available in the form of cream and lotion. Some of the tanning products available in the malls are chemical based. Such tanning products can cause adverse side effects. The side effects could be so serious that some of the chemical based products can cause skin cancer.

On the other hand, such tanning products apart from protecting the skin from UV of the sun also nourish and hydrate the skin. As a result, it makes the skin healthy and glowing.
In order to improve the effects of tanning, some of the manufacturers have introduced specially designed self tanner products. The self tanner contains carefully chosen skin friendly ingredients, which actually help the skin to produce ‘suntan’. Features of some of the best self tanner products are explained here:
· The self tanners protect the skin against Ultraviolet A also called as UVA rays of the sun. In order to provide adequate protection to the skin, you should use self tanning lotion or cream having SPF 30 or more. This depends on the severity of exposure to UV rays of the sun.
· In case you use sunscreen, then you may consider self tanners with SPF 15. This again depends on the severity of UV rays of the sun. In any case, you must use organic self tanners and organic sunscreens.
· Self tanners are available in varying types such as the cream, lotion, spray and so on. However, if you are using the spray, then you should ensure that you do not inhale the fume emanating from the tanner. This is true even in the case of organic self tanners.
· The best self tanners should have been prepared as per the standards established by the appropriate government agencies. Further, if you are known to be allergic to any of the tanners or sunscreens, then you must consult your physician before you apply the self tanner.

Thereafter, you should apply good quality organic moisturizer on the area where you had applied the tanner. Then apply good quality talcum powder.
