Three tips when buying a tan enhancer

A tan enhancer is neither a self-tanning product nor a sunscreen: it’s an accelerator that speeds up your skin’s melanin production for a deeper, longer-lasting tan. Some have ingredients that give them a self-tanning effect, while others don’t add any colour. Which type of product you should choose depends on how deep a tan you want.

Your skin develops a tan when exposed to the sun’s rays because they accelerate melanin production in your skin. You can also do this from the inside, by eating different foods or supplements that stimulate melanin production.

Carrots contain a lot of carotene – which is also one of the active ingredients in the supplements on the market which promise a better tan. Remember that no tan accelerators act as sunscreen, so you should always be careful not to spend too long in the sun. At Omni Calculator you can calculate recommended sun time.

And don’t forget sunscreen!

The products that promise you a better tan are sold under a variety of names. Here are a few different product names to look for:

  • Tanning oil. An oil that contains active ingredients that give a deeper tan.
  • Tan extender. Helps to maximise your tan and make it last longer.
  • Tan accelerator. Shortens the time from pale winter skin to sun-kissed summer skin.
