Look great this summer without damaging your skin and increasing the risk of skin cancer with a Spray Tan.

We have all read the research and had our opinions on fake tans and solariums but here are a few more to remind us why we shouldn't be using solariums.

Tanning beds increase your risk of skin cancer particularly Melanoma due to the ultraviolet (UV) radiation you receive whilst using them. The UV radiation you receive during your treatment is more dangerous than UV rays as it penetrates the uppermost layer of the skin and is the main cause of sunburn and skin cancer.

A recent study by the International Agency for Research in Cancer (IARC) concluded that using solariums regularly before the age of 30 boosted the risk of developing melanoma by a huge 75%. They say this figure could be even as high as 98% in their most recent study.

How scary is that??

Solariums can also cause eye damage, by either sunburn, irritation, redness and swelling. They use of solariums also ages your skin prematurely...why would you want to accelerate the ageing process and end up with leathery old skin?!!

So why not try a safer alternative this summer and try a spray on tan. They don't damage your skin, depending on the brand you use. Our spray tan is made from botanical herbs and is moisturising, fades evenly and can last between 7 - 10 days. It takes only 15 minutes to spray on and gives you a natural looking sun-kissed colour.

And best of have not increased your risk of skin cancer or increased the ageing process of having old wrinkled looking skin.
