Using Tanning Oil

Using Tanning Oil

When the summer sun begins to show, for most people it is aimed at achieving the perfect tan.

Getting the perfect tan can boost your self-confidence and help you feel happier.

It's no surprise that there are so many brands of tanning oils. While it may seem easy to choose a product that claims to provide a fast and lasting tan, it is vitally important to understand how these oils actually work and the issues to consider.

How Does Tanning Oil Work?

Especially in the last 30 years, the use of tanning oil has increased considerably in our country. But the vast majority of users have no idea how these oils work.

Tanning oils stimulate the body to produce more melanin. For this reason, it offers a faster tan. After the use of these oils, it activates the melanocytes in your body and makes them produce melanin faster. The higher the concentration of melanin in your skin, the more easily your body tans.

We can summarize a few issues that need to be considered in order to get good results by using tanning oil;

Make sure to apply the oil all over your body to get an even tan.

Allow the tanning oil to be absorbed by your skin. This allows oils to keep your skin moist and replenished with nutrients.

Reapply every 2-4 hours or whenever you come in contact with water.

If there is no sunscreen in the tanning oil, be sure to use sunscreen separately.

What Are the Benefits of Tanning Oil?

Many brands have a wide variety of tanning oils available. It is important to be able to find a product that will keep your skin healthy and fresh. Many tanning oils help moisturize your skin. This is especially important if you spend time outside in the sun. These oils are especially good for people with dry skin, as they help improve the appearance and feel of the skin.

In addition, Livben tanning oils contain essential vitamins and nutrients that your skin needs during tanning. It also contains antioxidants that help reduce the effect of UV rays on the skin, while still providing that fast and effective glow.

What Are the Risks of Tanning Oils?

Your health should always come first. No matter how much you're dying to get a tan! Tanning oils are specially made to help you tan. That means you need to be in the sun for the process to happen. Some tanning oils have a small sun protection factor (SPF), which increases the amount of UV rays absorbed. Despite the great looking skin you can get from sitting in the sun, it's important to remember that UV rays can be harmful and have consequences such as:


premature aging of the skin


eye problems

Skin cancer

Therefore, it is extremely important to limit the time you spend in the sun while tanning. Try not to be out of direct sunlight for too long during the rush hour between 11am and 3pm and be sure to take regular breaks to sit in the shade. On top of that, everyone has a melanin cutoff point where no more melanin can be produced physically. This usually occurs after 2-3 hours and after this point it is recommended to stop sunbathing or at least take a break.

Should You Use Tanning Oil with Other Products?

As we mentioned earlier, many of the tanning oils have very little SPF in them to provide a quicker tan.

That's why we strongly recommend using tanning oil in combination with other sun protection products. Applying a sunscreen with SPF before applying the tanning oil to your body provides a layer of protection. The higher the SPF, the more protection you get from UV rays. However, regular breaks from the sun are always recommended, even if sunscreen is applied first.
