Self Tan vs. Sun Tan

Here comes the sun. And with it comes a lot of controversy. Is it really good or bad for you?
Well, when it comes to your skin, it can be extremely harmful. Regardless of damaging your epidermis, causing wrinkles, sun spots and giving skin a leathery appearance, it’s also responsible for skin cancer, (malignant melanoma), a cancer that’s increasing…every year. But you knew all this already, right? – Beauty News Nyc (Self Tan)



We have emphasized the importance of protecting your skin in this hot summer sun for the past couple weeks now. So today instead of telling you how to protect your skin while in the sun, we want to introduce you to this gorgeous range of Self Tan!

Caribbean Tan

Caribbean Tan Sunless Tanning is an innovative concept in the application of Sunless Tanning. Our State of the Art Delivery System virtually eliminates all problems associated with Sunless Tanning Creams. No more streaky mess, orange palms, or dirty knees and elbows!

The innovative Sun Protection products, with UVA and UVB protection, mark the end of white streaky sunscreen. The products contain tan enhancing ingredients that make your skin tan faster and so lessen the time you need to spend in the sun working on your tan.

How does Caribbean Tan work?

Caribbean Tan products contain specially formulated active ingredients. One of these ingredients is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone – natural sugar cane derivitive). When applied to the skin, DHA causes a chemical reaction with the skin to produce a tan much like the sun, but without the UVA and UVB damage to the skin.

Forget about vacations, about going home at 6 pm - last thing at night you'll send emails, first thing in the morning you'll read emails, and you'll wake up in the middle of the night. But it's hugely rewarding as you're fulfilling something for yourself" 🖤 Do bigger things!
