Caution All Tan-oholics!

Posted by: on Nov 28, 2012 | No Comments

We all know already how bad sunbeds are for you right? They cause premature ageing, damage eyesight, and in the worst cases, skin cancer. So you’d be forgiven for thinking that opting for a weekly spray-tan would be a healthy alternative to maintaining your glow. Wrong! New research has proven that spray tans contain an active chemical called DHA (which stands for dihydroxyacetone), which can have bad side effects when breathed in, including coughing, dizziness, fainting and rashes, as well as cancer (although these results haven’t been effectively proven yet).

With that in mind, we suggest sticking to lotions and mousses to achieve the look of a bronzed goddess in the safest way possible. Plus you can ditch the dodgy shower cap! Try Xen-Tan’s range, which has an excellent variety of products suitable for all skin shades and desired looks. What’s more, they smell amazing!
