Tan In A Tube
Tan in a Tube is a mild self-tanning lotion for both face and body. It gradually gives you a natural-looking, gently sun-kissed skin tone. Maximum colour is obtained after using the product for 3–4 days in a row. Your actual shade will depend on the amount of pigment in your skin.
The active substance Dihydroxiacetone (DHA) is a tried and tested substance which has been used in self-tanning products since the 1950s. DHA is a carbohydrate that reacts to oxygen in the air and proteins in the skin’s outer layer (similarly to when you take a bite out of an apple, and leave it until it turns brown). The colour does not penetrate into the skin; it stays on the surface.
