There are two types of bronzers – Natural bronzers which use natural based extracts to provide immediate color to the skin that lasts one-to-two days. The natural extracts in these bronzers are considered cosmetic bronzers because they add color to the skin, much like cosmetic make-up. Then, there are Delayed bronzers which use the self-tanning agent Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) to increase dark color.
Erythrulose is often used in conjunction with DHA. Both are sugar cane extracts that chemically darken the protein in the skin, the more DHA used, the darker the shade of brown. The color typically lasts four-to-seven days and is seen within two-to-four hours after application.
Tingle tanning lotions are for advanced tanners who like to experience a warming sensation during tanning and to see a reddening effect on their skin after tanning. Tingle is a benzyl nicotinate which stimulates and increases microcirculation of the skin for greater, more intense tanning results. Tingles should be tested on a small area of skin before complete application.
They are not intended for sensitive skin or skin without a base tan. Tingles are also not intended for facial or delicate areas of the body or for outdoor use. Make sure to wash hands after use and use special care when handling pets and children as the effect could be transferred to skin even hours after use. The effect can last anywhere from 20 minutes to a few hours depending on the intensity of the ingredients and the sensitivity of each individual’s skin which is why testing a small area is recommended. If skin needs cooling afterward, an aloe based gel with lidocaine is recommended.
