A New Healthy Way to Get That Golden Glow


Everyone loves a great tan

There’s a lot of subjectivity to be found in appearance. For example, the whole point of fashion is arguably to change people’s views of what is and isn’t visually appealing. But at the same time there’s a few things which almost everyone can agree is attractive. And one of the best example of this is tanning. A wonderful golden glow from a great tan is one of the most attractive things that people can do for themselves. Almost everyone finds people with a tan more attractive than if they lacked it. But at the same time, there’s one notable downside to tanning. It’s been well demonstrated that tanning can increase the chances of skin cancer. And it brings any number of other negative effects to skin as well. Or at least that’s been the modern view of tanning. But it’s important to remember that all of those things come about through the actual process of tanning and not the actual tan. This presents an interesting way around the problem. Researchers simply needed to find a way to create tans without forcing people to spend too much time under carcinogenic solar radiation.

A simple way to get a great tan

The answer has come in the form of melanotan. All one needs to do is take some melanotan before spending a very short amount of time in the sun. Normally it takes quite some time in the sun before the tanning process begins. Tanning is really a self defence mechanism in the skin to try and control damage once it begins to occur. Melanotan essentially tricks the body into releasing a large amount of melanin, the substance behind a great tan, all at once. This essentially means that one will begin tanning before damage to the skin occurs instead of after.


Getting the Best Possible Tan

wpLooking great all of the time

Everyone loves a good tan. It’s a rare person who doesn’t find themselves either drooling with admiration or envy when looking at someone with bronzed skin. But things are a bit more complicated when it comes to tanning than it’s been in the past. We now know just how much damage to the skin a good tan can cause. Or at least that’s the common perception. In reality, things are a bit more complex.

It’s not the tan it’s the sun

People often make the mistake of thinking that tans are unhealthy. And this isn’t even close to the truth. All tans are is the result of one’s body pumping out more of a substance called melanin. All melanin does is add a beautiful hue to the skin and help protect against damage from the sun. And that’s the big distinction with tans. It’s not the tan which is the problem, it’s the sunlight. And this is why something known as melanotan has been such an amazing innovation.

Tanning the healthy way

Melanotan can be administered, and then someone can simply get a minimal amount of sunlight. This will spark a chain reaction which will instantly trigger the tanning effect as melanin is secreted into the skin. This might seem like a counterintuitive way to get a tan at first. But it’s important to remember that this isn’t a spray on substitute or really a substitute of any kind. It’s a real tan, which is still coming from the sun. But it’s a real tan in response to a level of sunlight which shouldn’t pose any real health concerns. This means tanning without the associated risk of skin cancer, wrinkling, or other damaging effects which come from excess exposure to the sun.
