Each year skin cancer claims nearly 2000 deaths in the UK and around 55,500 deaths worldwide. We are all more aware of the dangers of skin cancer and sales of sunscreens have soared over the past few years.
UVA and UVB rays are two types of ultraviolet rays that can cause harm to unprotected skin. This ranges from premature aging and wrinkling through to severely burning your skin which can play a longer term role in the development of skin cancer. UVA rays can damage your skin even when it is cloudy or in winter.
Wearing sun cream will help to reduce the risk of premature aging and skin cancer. SPF stands for sun protection factor. Sunscreens are classified by an SPF number which refers to their ability to deflect UVB rays. SPF 50 means that your skin can be exposed to the sun 50 times longer than if was unprotected.
Tancream has the ultra protection level of SPF 50 and UVA 5 stars meaning that it protects against deep penetrating UVA and UVB rays that can damage skin.
How to wear
Wear daily even in winter or in cloudy conditions so your skin is always protected.
Tancream has superior moisturising properties and an instant natural tint, so only one daily application to your skin is needed to give an even tone leaving a smooth silky texture.
The gradual self-tan will work after a few hours and build up to produce a healthy colour and daily use will maintain your tan whilst protecting your skin from damage.
The specially designed formula also inhibits the development of a ‘self-tan smell’ and is completely odour free.
FACE – Apply evenly to face and neck with finger tips in circular movements, avoiding the eyes & eyebrows. Tancream will give you instant warmth and coverage of blemishes, age spots and scarring allowing you to be make-up free.
BODY – Apply evenly, working in circular movements to all exposed areas not forgetting your back and the backs of your legs. The instant warm bronzer will give you a great guide to your application, is easily absorbed and will leave your skin looking and feeling luxuriously smooth.
“As a dermatologist, I see the negative effects of over-exposing skin to the sun. The concept of an effective SPF 50 combined with a tanning agent is fantastic. So while the skin is fully protected, the wearer can achieve a healthy-looking glow. I love the premium feel of the lotion when applied to the skin and I am sure there will be a huge demand for Tancream.”
