3 Natural Homemade Self-Tanning Lotions

Natural homemade self-tanning lotions act as the body’s shield against ultraviolet rays. Exposure to ultraviolet rays causes skin cells to produce melanin. Besides, tanning significantly reduces the risk of certain types of cancers due to vital amounts of vitamin D. However, excessive tanning causes premature aging, wrinkles, brown spots, and cancer of the skin.

Benefits of Tanning

  • It lessens the risk of skin cancer.
  • It makes the body generate vitamin D.
  • Tanning brings balance to the hormones and promotes the production of healthy oils thus keeping our skin healthy, moisturized, pampered and more attractive.
  • It reduces stretch marks and scar visibility.

The best part about the natural homemade self-tanning lotion is that it is safe and cheap. Below, we have highlighted three simple steps to follow to make homemade self-tanning lotions.

Tanning oils are considered to be better since people require less content to cover the body, in comparison to the lotion. Ingredients for this mask include 3 liters of water, ½ kilo of fresh unpeeled carrots, and 2 cups of brown sugar.

How to Prepare

  • Clean the carrots and cut them into very thin slices.
  • Boil the water.
  • Add the sliced carrots and the brown sugar, then reduce the heat and allow them to simmer for at least 3 hours.
  • Remove from heat and let the combination cool.
  • Use a strainer to separate the clumps from the liquid.
  • Pour your tanning oil into a spray bottle.
  • Apply weekly for the best results.

Importance

Get all of the liquid out of your carrots as you strain them by applying a little pressure. Also, ensure there are no pieces of the carrot in your tanning solution because they can clog your spray bottle and the oil will not come out well.
