In recent years, it has been proven that UVA and UVB rays, from the sun or from tanning lamps, can alter the DNA of skin cells and contribute to skin cancer. Also, these rays contribute to the aging process, creating wrinkles and the darkened patches of skin called sun spots. Still, though, people love their golden glow. While the self-tanning lotions of the 1970s and early 1980s often left users looking orange, modern tanning lotions create a natural-looking tan that you can have year-round while saving your skin from long-term damage. Cosmetic tanners, such as bronzing powders and creams, are make-ups that let you experiment and play with your glow on a day-to-day basis.
