About Swap Your Tan
This campaign encourages people to ditch the tanning beds and switch to self tanner instead.
Nowadays we are all aware of the dangers of prolonged tanning and the use of tanning beds so by switching to a tanning lotion you can drastically reduce the risks of developing skin cancers most commonly caused by Ultraviolet light exposure (UV).
Those getting involved in the campaign are showing off their favourite self tanners while helping to raise awareness for skin cancer.
If you're new to the world of fake tanning, make sure to do some research on which tanners on the market would be best for you and your skin type.
Don't forget to also wear your sunscreen daily to protect your skin from harmful sunrays!
Tanning beds are are far worse for are skin than most tanning creams or lotions and increase the chances of developing skin cancers.
Ultraviolet light is one of the most common causes of skin cancer.
The safest way to receive vitamin D is through diet rather than sun exposure.
Tanning can cause, skin structural damage, age spots, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
The number of skin cancer cases due to tanning is higher than lung cancer cases caused by smoking.
Getting a 'base tan' does not not prevent sunburn.
Becoming addicted to tanning is a real risk and can cause people to feel fidgety or depressed if they stop.
In 2010, the tanning industry's revenue was believed to be well over $2.6 billion.
Swap Your Tan
My favourite self tanner is the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Body Lotion. I'm super fair skinned and never seem to tan naturally (I burn and then go back to pale white!) so tend to lean more towards gradual tanners so that I can build up the tan in a more natural looking way. This one from Palmers gives off such a pretty and natural golden colour after one application, is super easy to apply and normally lasts around one week!
To join in with this campaign, simply take a photo with your favourite self tanner and send it to Soraya on Instagram. Don't forget to tag Soraya and use the #swapyourtan hashtag!
