We are happy to announce that this is the first article in our Summer Series, so stay tuned for many more summer tips to keep your skin clear!
Summer is almost here and we want to look our best at all those weddings,graduations and beach and garden parties, so we speed up nature (and avoid harmful exposure to UVA - "bad" sun rays) by using self-tanning products.
When you have Acne or Rosacea, you need to be aware of how the use of sunless tanning products may present a risk of irritating your skin and amplifying the existing skin problems.
Finally - the tanning pills: they are commercially banned in the US, yet some people get their hands on them. DO NOT USE THEM! They contain the carotene chemical canthaxanthin (the same pigment found in carrots), and have been associated with hepatitis and urticaria, a condition that involves relentless itching and skin eruptions.
