It is equally as important in supporting those fair toned people who want to appear tanned, as it is for tanned people who want to appear lighter. Some fair skin types just won’t tan naturally and when fair people finally see a glimmer of a tiny bit of a tan, it’s simply an accumulation of freckled pigments coming together in protest, wanting answers. Through years of scientific research and development, fortunately for those who have fair skin and want to tan (from a bottle, not the sun), can successfully do so safely and temporarily. Unfortunately lightening the skin’s pigment is not yet deemed as a safe alternative. Tanning the skin tone (to darken) and skin whitening (to lighten) practices are not new concepts and have been around for centuries. To understand the difference between why tanning (fake tan) the skin is safe and skin lightening is not recommended, you should first understand skin. I spoke about this in my first Blog “How Long Does A Spray Tan Last”. Our skin has 2 main layers: Dermis (meaning hidden skin) and the epidermis (meaning above). There are 5 layers for the epidermis and each layer (stratum) has their own function and purpose. Starting from the outermost layer:
- Stratum Corneum- Horny,
- Stratum Lucidum,
- Stratum Granulosum- Granular,
- Stratum Spinosum- Spiny and
- Stratum and Stratum Basale which is the deepest layer before the dermis.
