Summer is the season of tanning. Recently, many people tan before filming “Body Profile” even if it’s not necessarily summer. This is to vividly capture the shape of the muscles in the picture as much as taking a commemorative photo after taking a healthy care of your body. If you are considering tanning, what should you be careful about?
◇ Artificial tanning… melanoma, risk of photoallergic
Machine-based artificial tanning increases the risk of melanoma, a type of skin cancer. According to data from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety, if a tanning device is used before the age of 30, the risk of melanoma may increase by 75%.
오피-tanning introduced the latest machine that does not cause danger.
Even those who are taking oral contraceptives should avoid tanning. This is because female hormones are likely to cause stains. In addition, before getting tanned, you should check in advance for any photoallergic reactions. According to data from Asan Medical Center in Seoul, photoallergies are caused by an antigen-forming reaction between proteins and chemicals in the skin when ultraviolet rays touch the skin. It is recommended to limit the time and number of times to 10 minutes a day, once a week, and less than 30 times a year.
◇Tanning lotion can also create healthy skin
You can make copper skin without “baking” the skin yourself. This is because of applying a “tanning lotion” that temporarily applies pigment to the skin. According to the Korean Cosmetics Association’s “Cosmetics Common Sense for Consumers,” the copper color that appears when tanning lotion is applied is not caused by dyeing the skin, but by the chemical reaction of DHA with amino acids on the surface of the skin. If you apply a lot at once, it can get stained, so it’s good to apply it thinly several times. There are individual differences, but once applied, it lasts for two to four days.
It’s easy to think that you don’t have to wear sunscreen after applying tanning lotion. However, if it is a tanning lotion that does not contain sunscreen active ingredients, the color of the skin will only change, and the skin will not be protected by sunlight. You can choose a tanning lotion that prevents UV rays only when you check the UV protection index (SPF) marked on the surface of the product.
Tanning lotion, like other cosmetics, can also cause contact dermatitis. If there is an abnormal reaction to the skin, the area where the product is applied should be washed with water immediately, and if it is severe, you should visit a specialist for consultation.
