Woman applying her tanning lotionGetting a tan is more than just a fad. It has been something that more and more people aspire to have especially during the summer season when bodies tend to be more exposed. Unfortunately, there have been numerous tanning horror stories that some people had to experience.

Now, there are numerous beauty stores like Bali Body that offer various tanning methods and products that can give your that gold glow you’ve always wanted, all year round. All you need to do is to find which one works best for you and your body.

Traditional method

Basking in the sun is still the cheapest and most effective way to get a tan. The catch, however, is that it could cause uneven skin tones and worse, could pose serious health risks. Too much exposure to the sun’s UV rays can do more damage to your skin than good.

Sunless tan

This method is becoming increasingly popular because first, it does not pose as much health risks as that of the traditional tanning method, and second, it can give you that perfect tan. It comes with a price, but you can choose one that suits your budget.


Spray a dihydroxyacetone (DHA) solution on your body, and wait for at least 8 hours, or overnight for the solution to set in before bathing. Airbrushing can give you that even tan for a week or so depending on every individual.

Tanning lotions

This is the most famous and most affordable way for those who want to get an instant tan. Simply find the shade that works for you, apply it evenly onto your skin, and voilà!

Tanning beds

Tanning beds use UV-A and UV-B rays to give a person natural tan minus the sun exposure. However, too much exposure to such rays can also increase your risk of getting sunburned or even skin cancer.
