You care about your health, which is why you carefully read your food labels. So why not read your beauty products’ labels too? After all, what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. This applies to all your beauty products, including makeup, hair creams, gels, cleaners, and of course, moisturizers. As for tanning lotion, it is even more important to know which ingredients you are using since they are formulated to make changes in your skin. Last week, we discussed the different types of tanning lotions, while this week, we’ll review the common ingredients used in such products.

Common Tanning Lotion Ingredients:

DHA (dihydroxyacetone)

This is a common high-intensity, chemical-based bronzer. It delivers instant color that lasts longer.

Methyl Nicotinate

This is an active ingredient that promotes micro-circulation in the skin, as well as a tingling or warming effect. It increases melanin production in the skin to deliver a faster tan.

Body Blush

Body blush is an active ingredient that works very similar to a tingler or hot action lotion. It promotes blood flow and pigment coloration in the skin.

Hemp Seed Oil

Tanning lotions can contain a wide variety of natural oils for moisturizing, including green tea extract, tea tree oil, and most commonly, hemp seed oil. Natural oils like this have less alcohol in them, making them a more effective moisturizer.

Silicone

Another mineral ingredient used for moisturizing the skin, silicone conditions the skin and makes it soft and hydrated for days.

Vitamin A

Also called Beta carotene, Vitamin A delivers enhanced pigmentation in the skin.

Caffeine

Caffeine is often added to tanning lotion to invigorate the skin and reduce the appearance of puffiness.

Anti-Aging Elements

Many tanning lotions are formulated with anti-aging elements, primarily vitamins, to reduce the effects of aging on the skin.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a common anti-aging element used in tanning lotions, but it also makes the skin very soft and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

Shimmer

Shimmers are additives used in tanning lotions that deliver a reflective, glimmering affect. It leaves skin looking tan and glowing.
