So am currently on holiday. A 'style/beauty rep visited hotel resort yesterday selling 'tan accelerators'.
I checked the ingredients and all were plant based (aloe vera, some essential oils, etc). No parabens, petroleum, etc.
Dd1 wants to accelerate her tan. I have no idea how this product would facilitate that. Does anyone know? I asked the rep what the active ingredient was in them to do this and she was vague (I guess didn't know or it's a scam).
Has anyone ever used tan accelerators? How do they work?
I wouldn't buy anything that is claiming to accelerate skin damage tbh. I thought, perhaps naively, that in this day and age people didn't go out in the sun to deliberately tan themselves let alone go on sunbeds, more that people slathered on high factor sunscreen to prevent burning. I'd just wait until she gets home and buy some self tan. She'll still get some colour even using a high SPF, but anything else could just be dangerous in terms of skin damage.
Next time take THIS Just apply after a shower every night. Tan will be amazing. Then keep using it every couple of days when you get back and the tan will last and last. For the current question - I have no idea!
