Tanning has come a long way. Many have praised it for how well it boosts one’s look as well as being able to hide any imperfections on one’s body. There has been a lot of ways that tanning can be achieved and that’s how the evolution has gone through.
Firstly, we have sunbathing as a manner of tanning. This is no surprise as the earliest manner of tanning is through this means. Back when everything was still simple, sunbathing has been the go-to method of tanning. It’s also because of how straightforward and cost-efficient this method it. It’s also the manner of how tanning was discovered thus we have sunbathing to thank for the humbler beginnings of self tanning.
Second method of tanning is through the means of indoor tanning. Tanning beds and tanning showers have begun to rise as an alternative to sunbathing. Not everyone has the time to commit to lying under the sun for hours on end. Tanning salons give individuals the chance to get their sun-kissed tone without having too much commitment in tanning. Tanned individuals are viewed as athletic and well-off, thus it’s no surprise that a lot of people jumped into the tanning bandwagon.
Self tanners come in last, despite being present during the time that tanning beds have made a staple hold on the tanning industry. It’s been known and proven that soaking up too much UV rays can cause a lot of harm to one’s body. With the recent rise of cancer and the aversion to getting sunburn from tanning beds or sunbathing, individuals have begun to explore tanning through self tanners. It’s only recent that there’s a better traction of self tanners due to the rise of melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer, making its name as the top four cancers on the list.
