I was exposed too much to the sun when i was a kid. Is tanning my body the best way to make all my body colour fit?

I was exposed too much to the sun when i was a kid. Is tanning my body the best way to make all my body colour fit?

NO: If your body color is not all one tone, it may be more than just a lot of sun as a kid. More tanning is not the best answer. I would recommend seeing a chinese medicine practitioner as you may simply be out of balance (we all are) and diet changes and some herbs may help restore you....Over t me...To a more even color all over. ...Read more

Are self tanning lotions harmful? Do they have dangerous chemicals in them? Is it safe to use?

Very safe.: Self tanning lotions are very safe. They are simply staining the top-most layers of skin a brown color. I recommend my patients use self-tanners over using tanning beds or external tanning to get color. If your skin is getting darker from sun exposure, it is a pathogenic response to sun, and means your skin cells are trying to protect their dna by producing melanin. This is never good. ...Read more
