Natural vs unnatural: Brown or the color of melanin is natures way of protecting the skin from UV light rays. Tanning is natures way of responding to the sun or UV light exposure. Unnatural, spray on tans that are the color of orange, are not natural and do not protect your skin. Why do you want an unnatural looking tan?
