What are the types of tanning accelerators?

There are two types of tanning activators: for topical use (creams, spray, oil or gel) and in capsules or pills.

Topical tan activator

Topical tan enhancers are tan-enhancing lotions or creams that are applied directly to the skin on the day you decide to take a walk on the beach or sunbathe. Depending on the brand of tan activator you use, creams often come in different shades for different skin types and different stages of tanning. For example, there is an ideal lotion for those who start this process and use the product for the first time. In this way, some tanning activators can be used several times a day or week, while others increase the speed of tanning to a greater extent and more care must be taken to avoid skin damage after use.

Tanning activator in capsules or tablets

Some tanning accelerators come in the form of tablets or capsules that must be ingested, in general, for 15 days before, for example, taking your trip to the beach. These types of tanning accelerators usually also work as nutritional supplements to protect the skin in case of overexposure to the sun. The tanning accelerator in tablets is more recommended than the one for topical use, since in most cases it has better properties. Some tan activators include vitamins and antioxidants that will not only give your skin a quick and long-lasting tan, but will keep your skin hydrated, smooth and healthy. In fact, if you decide to opt for this type of tanning accelerator, we recommend that you first discuss it with your doctor or dermatologist, since skin care is a very sensitive topic. All skins are different and not all products are suitable for all people. On the other hand, it is important that you consult your dermatologist if you have atopic skin and are following any treatment when using a tanning activator. It is also relevant if you are using anti-cellulite creams or the like. Often, even the best tan enhancers in capsule form are multi-purpose products , because in addition to activating your tan, they provide you with a large amount of vitamins necessary for good skin care and hydration.
