Tanning with natural tanning oils

Summer is practically here and we can’t leave you hanging. After all, we are from the prettiest island in the world, where the sun hits, and tanning comes in naturally. So we want to share some secrets with you. We know how important protecting you skin from UV rays are but we also know how tanning is practically a hobby for most of us during the summer time, where you are where the sun is shining.

To top this off, we want to start by emphasizing that we believe that tanning is your dose of vitamin D, and that bronzed color, but also a time to moisturize your body while you lying on the beach chair. While tanning is a popular summer activity, it's important to understand that it can also be harmful to your skin if we don’t approach it the right way.

This is where the beauty of natural oils comes into play. Unlike conventional tanning products that can strip the skin of moisture, natural oils keep your skin supple, smooth, and beautifully hydrated throughout your tanning journey. Taking advantage of nature’s raw natural oils offers so many benefits that not only enhances your bronzed look but also nurtures and protect your skin. Say goodbye to harsh chemicals and embrace the beauty and benefits of natural ingredients as we explore why using natural oils to tan during the summer is an add on to a healthy glow.

First, let’s breakdown the benefits of using these natural oils

Deep nourishment and hydration

Natural and rich oils are are rich in vitamins and nutrients that really penetrates deep into the skin's layers, replenishing moisture and promoting a healthier complexion. Silky smooth that last longer than lotion.

Coconut Oil

First of all, coconut oil is known to deeply hydrate your skin, while keeping it hydrated and smooth while you tan. Additionally, it has natural SPF qualities that provide a low amount of UV protection and lower the likelihood of sunburn.

Carrot Oil

Carrot oil tanning has several skin-friendly properties, making it a great option for people looking for a safe and efficient tanning solution. Beta-carotene, a potent antioxidant that helps shield the skin from free radicals and UV damage, is abundant in carrot oil. By promoting the formation of melanin, the pigment responsible for skin color, it aids in developing a deep, golden tan. A more vivid and long-lasting tan is the outcome of this. Carrot oil is also well recognized for its moisturizing qualities, which keep your skin hydrated and prevent dryness when exposed to the sun. Your skin's overall elasticity and smoothness can be improved by its renewing properties, leaving it glowing and smooth. You can nurture your skin while getting a gorgeous tan with carrot oil.

It is rich in antioxidants, such as vitamin E and proanthocyanidins, which help protect the skin from free radicals and sun damage, reducing the risk of premature aging.  The oil is so moisturizing and hydrating that your skin will be silky smooth throughout your whole tanning session. Grapeseed oil also contains linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, which is an important factor in maintaining the skin’s barrier function. Essentially this is the result of a healthier and glowing complexion from head to toe. Additionally, the oil's light texture allows for even application and absorption of sunlight, leading to a more uniform and long-lasting tan.
