Suntan Oil vs. Suntan Lotion

Brizilian bikinis - oil or lotion?Summer is here and time to get a tan! But, how do you get the perfect bronze glow? People have been asking this question for decades. Can you even calculate how many hours you’ve spent in the sun or in a tanning bed?

When it comes to tanning we all know that the ultra violet rays tan the skin but also dries the skin and dehydrates it! There are so many variables when it comes to choosing a suntan oil or suntan lotion. How do you know which is best and which will give you the results you want?

Here are a few facts about each:

Suntan lotion

Sunscreen or sunblock is a lotion that is applied to reduce skin damage by blocking ultraviolet radiation from the sun. The best sunscreens block both UV-A and UV-B rays, both of which can cause sunburn. Most sunscreens work by containing either an organic chemical compounds that absorbs ultraviolet light (such as oxybenzone) or an opaque materials that reflects light (such as zinc oxide), or both.

Suntan Oils

Suntan oils have two advantages; they are water-resistant and have very good moisturizing properties. This is because they prevent the loss of water through the skin as they form an occlusive layer on the skin. Most oils consist of mineral oil together with some other moisturizing oils. Some suntan oils contain all kinds of exotic oils from tropical fruits and plants like Avocado oil, Jojoba oil and Coconut oil, but also oils like Mink oil and others. Although some of these oils are very good for the skin, they are also very expensive and therefore only present in very small, hardly effective, amounts.

To avoid sunburn defiantly go with suntan lotion, if you already tan and want a deeper tan use suntan oil. Make sure you always use a sunscreen on your face where the skin is thinner and more susceptible to burn and sun damage. Children should never use suntan oil! Limit your sun exposure to the smallest amount, there’s always tomorrow to darken that tan!

Have fun this summer but be smart about being in the sun. When you’re through tanning put on a big hat or go inside!
