Should You Use Melanotan to Get a Tan?

2If you are wondering about the best products on the market at the moment for natural looking tans, someone has probably told you about tanning injections. You may have even heard of one brand called Melanotan. A brand that is very popular with people that prefer to get a fake tan than to lie out in the sun.

What is Melanotan and should you use it if you want to get a natural looking tan, without the fear of burning your skin with the sun?

What is Melanotan? — Melanotan is the brand name for a product that contains melanin. Melanin is the pigment in your body that determines the shade of your skin. The more melanin you have in your body, the darker your skin tone.

Will Melanotan give you a natural tan? — Yes, Melanotan is very good at giving people natural looking tans. In fact, it is one of the few tanning products on the market that does not make your skin turn orange.

If you use Melanotan as directed, you will notice your natural looking tan begin to develop in just a few hours. You will have to be outside in the sun for just a few minutes, though. Just in order to activate it.

How often can you use Melanotan? — You can use the product as often as you like. Or as often as you need to as your tan begins to fade.

Most people say they have an initial tanning injection, then may have another one within a week. At that point, however, they usually have a tan they like.

Then it is just a case of giving yourself another melanotan injection as your tan fades. In most cases, that will mean once a month or so in order to maintain the tan.
