While sunscreen is important year round, to help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of cancer, it is a must for these long days spent at the pool, lake or beach. True Natural has an excellent line of natural sunscreens and even a natural sunless tanning lotion. These lotions are 100% mineral based and provide, broad spectrum UV protection. Their formula is all natural & biodegradable and contains no synthetic ingredients/chemicals. The unscented formula for babies and sensitive skin is given a rating of 1 (0 being the lowest 10 being the highest) from EWG’s Cosmetic Safety Database in their 2012 Sunscreen Report. The texture of theses lotions make for a quick & easy application, which is nice when you have little ones who are always on the go and don’t want to wait to be slathered in sunscreen.

All Natural Anti Aging Self Tanner
Per the direction on the bottle I exfoliated my skin with a sugar scrub and applied the self tanning lotion in a light sweeping motion. I noticed the different with in just a few hours. According to the bottle typically the tanned effect visible within 3-4 hours. Tan can be built up to achieve desired intensity. As you can see it totally knocked the stark white paleness from my legs, I really love this stuff. I use it on my face and neck as well with no skin problems. I enjoy the citrus scent it has, it doesn’t have the usual smell of a sunless tanning lotion…a scent that I despise. I really love this sunless tanner, I have been using it for about 3 weeks, since I don’t want a super dark looking tan, I reapply when my color starts to fade which is about every 3 days or so just to keep the paleness away. Here are some before and after shots:

How does it work?
The combination of naturally occurring sugars found in certain fruits and vegetables are used in our The True Natural Self Tanner. The sugars react with amino acids found in the outer layer of the skin, creating a nontoxic reaction which gives skin a tanned look. Pretty cool, huh? This self tanner is also the first and only USDA 100% Certified Bio-based self tanner on the market!
