Tanning on Holiday

Many people like to pick up a bit of a tan on holiday. This is more easily done in hot countries where you can lie on the beach and gradually pick up a tan whilst using sun protection.

However, some people feel that this traditional tanning method does not give instant enough results and so they turn to artificial ways of boosting their tan.

Fake tans are a huge market these days. The natural looking results that users can get from using fake tanning products have improved significantly. Fake tanning is both an affordable and safe way to get a tan - before, during and even after your holiday.

Many people also used to use sun beds before going on holiday. However, their popularity has dwindled in recent years however as people have questioned the safety of sun bed tanning.

Another way that people accelerate the tanning process is by using metal or aluminium foil sheets to reflect the sun’s rays back onto their skin whilst sunbathing.

The sight of people using aluminium sheet metal to boost their tans is common in ski resorts, where skiers use their off-piste relaxation time to soak up reflected sun rays.

However, this is not thought to be a particularly natural way to tan and you need strong sun screen. It is always better to tan slowly or use one of today’s high tech artificial tanning products to boost your colour.

So tanning on holiday is done in many different ways. The best thing is to play it safe and only let your skin be gradually exposed to sunlight, whilst also protecting it from harmful UV rays.
