SPRAY TAN / SELF TANNING / FAKE TANS

I have NOT had time to investigate the ingredients used on spray-on tanning solutions, so I currently have NO OPINION as to the safety of these products. I do, however, wonder about the safety of adding something to the top of your skin that is not normally present in real life, but these products may turn out to be beneficial. At the moment, I don't know of a known-to-be independent laboratory that tests spray on tan products, but I'll look for them. Spray-On, Rub-On Products Give Bronze Glow Without Skin Damage "You'll still need to wear sunscreen when you're outdoors, because you can still get burnt which can be dangerous." Sunless tanning: A safe alternative to sunbathing - MayoClinic "What about sunless tanning pills? Sunless tanning pills, which typically contain the color additive canthaxanthin, are unsafe. When taken in large amounts, canthaxanthin can turn your skin orange and cause hives. Sunless tanning pills can also cause liver damage and lead to the formation of crystals in the retina of the eye (canthaxanthin retinopathy)." - MayoClinic Top 6 Self Tanners - Top Selling Self Tanners Welcome to Spray Tan Review!

SUNBURN - Treating

I AM NOT A DOCTOR AND I HAVE NO MEDICAL TRAINING. SEEK MEDICAL HELP WHEN NEEDED. Soothing a Sunburn for KIDS - WebMB Quoted from the WeMD link, above: If your child gets sunburn, and is active, playful, and does not have any blisters, here's how you can make him feel better. Place a cool compress to the sunburn. Apply aloe gel to the burned skin. Try placing the aloe in the fridge for a few minutes first before using. Give acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Check with your doctor for the correct dose. Give your child plenty of fluids. Do not use over-the-counter pain relieving products containing benzocaine on sun-burned skin. (These are called topical anesthetics.) They can often make the pain worse, and some people are allergic to the ingredient. If your child feels or looks ill, spikes a fever, or has blisters, seek medical attention." DO NOT APPLY BUTTER OR OIL TO ANY BURN!

UV - Ultraviolet

Exposure to ultraviolet light, UVA or UVB, from sunlight accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging. UV Information - Understanding UVA and UVB - skincancer.org Short- and long-wave UV light (UVB and UVA) - NIH.gov Which sunscreen ingredients protect best? - ConsumerSearch - 4/2009 "Reviews say that newer sunscreen ingredients are now better at blocking harmful UVA rays, but the product must contain avobenzone (also called Parsol 1789), titanium dioxide, zinc oxide or Mexoryl SX (Tinosorb outside the U.S.), to fully protect.

UVA - Ultraviolet A (long-wave 320-400 nm)

"now studies are showing that UVA is a major contributor to skin damage. UVA penetrates deeper into the skin and works more efficiently. The intensity of UVA radiation is more constant than UVB without the variations during the day and throughout the year. UVA is also not filtered by glass." - Effects of Sun on the Skin - About.com Black light fluorescent tubes is a common source of long wave (UVA) ultraviolet - Ultraviolet - Wikipedia Long-wave ultraviolet radiation (UVA) and skin cancer SPF, UVB and UVA Protection Explained UVA Confusion

UVB - Ultraviolet B (short-wave 280-320 nm)

Nano Zinc Oxide is currently (7/2010) considered the best UVB blocker (Internet). Additionally, sunscreens block UVB, and if used consistently this can cause a deficiency of vitamin D. SPF, UVB and UVA Protection Explained - jaxmed UVB Radiation (2006) Sunscreen Information - UVB Sunscreen Ingredients - about.com

UVC wavelengths (100-280 nm)

UVC rays are very strongly blocked by the Earth's ozone layer.

UVP - ultraviolet protection rating

Ultraviolet Protection Factor, UPF Ratings - Coolibar "The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (or "UPF") rating system measures the UV protection provided by fabric. It is very similar to the SPF rating system used for sunscreens." Fabrics and clothing for protection against the sun Ultraviolet - Wikipedia Sun Protection Information - silvereagleoutfitters
