Benefits of using Argan and Tanning Oils

Aside from tanning, applying pure Argan Oil or Cactus Seed Oil as an overnight treatment to counteract sun exposure. has many benefits. It will help calm inflammation, heal scars, maintain hydration and support skin renewal to keep feeling smooth.

Argan Oil

A key way to slow aging of the skin and reduce the risk of cancer is to ensure a good supply of anti-oxidants.

The UV in sunlight causes free-radical damage ( oxidative stress ). This affects the natural regeneration and health of skin cells. Oxidative stress is one of the main causes of skin cancer.

A good way to fight cell damage is by using natural anti-oxidants. These can be taken in the diet or applied topically.

Argan Oil is rich in one of the most powerful anti-oxidants Tocopherol. In fact, Tocopherols ( Vitamin E ) make up over 60% of the oil.

Argan Oil is also rich in flavonoids. These compounds inhibit the pro-inflammatory activity of enzymes connected to free radical production. They should be taken in high levels in foods but can also be successfully applied topically. [8]

Tropical Coconut Oil

Hawaii coconut oil is the deep-tan oil of choice.

Besides giving a deeper tan organic coconut oil nourishes the skin. This is thanks to the abundance of fatty acids like Capric Acid, Caprylic Acid and Lauric Acid. Coconut Oil also has antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties to guard skin against infections.

Stable saturated fats in coconut oil reduce the loss of moisture from the skin. In fact, as you sun-bathe they are acting to form a protective layer.

It is these nutrients that also activate the melanin below the skin to develop a richer, deeper tan in a shorter time.

It is estimated Coconut oil may block around 20 percent of the sun’s UV.

However, remeber, a sunscreen of around an SPF of 30+ is recommended and should be reapplied every two hours.

How to Take Care of Your Skin in the Sun

Skin Aging & Tanning

The sun is perhaps the single greatest cause of premature ageing of the skin and hair.

Natural UV radiation levels are increasing. Combine this the trend to have a tropical sun-tan that prematurely ages our skin and it is a recipe for disaster.

Why Do We Tan?

To protect your skin from sun damage your body tans.

Tanning is a darkening of the skin caused by a skin pigment called melanin. The darker melanin helps to protect from UV damage by reducing UV penetration into your skin.

The darkening process and melanin formation is stimulated by the UV radiation from the sun.

High Risks of Skin Cancer

The single greatest cause of skin cancer is sunburn. The map of the right shows the highest occurrence of skin cancer by country.
The highest rates of Melanomas occur in non-indigenous white-skinned races in countries such as New Zealand and Australia.

Sun burn has long-lasting effects and over 5 sunburn events in a lifetime drastically increase your chance of getting skin cancer.
This is why it is particularly important to protect children against sunburn.

Diet and Skin Cancer

The hotter countries of Europe are also a high risk for sun cancer. However, countries such as Spain or Greece have the lowest skin cancer rates. It is thought that this may be due to the Mediterranean diet which is high in fish, fresh fruits, Olive Oils and lower in red meat.

By contrast, high-risk cancer countries such as, USA, Australia and New Zealand have a cuisine which features a lot of red meats and dairy.

Sun Screens – Good or Bad

Sunscreen, sunblock, sun cream, suntan lotions are lotions and creams to reduce the amount of harmful UVA and UVB radiation that reaches your skin.

However, despite decades of education about sun-screen use, skin cancer rates continue to rise dramatically. Some early sunblock creams only blocked UVB rays but blocking which confused the body’s natural defence mechanisms and allowed harmful UVA to cause serious damage. Modern sunscreens should all offer UVA AND UVB protection.

Retinyl Palmitate?

Research released by the Environmental Working Group, a Washington-based non-profit organisation, claims that many sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which cancer cells can form.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration studied “Retinyl palmitate for photo-toxicity and photo-carcinogenicity testing but say there isn’t enough evidence to suggest these chemicals may be harmful.

In Canada, health authorities are now concerned that such additives may increase sun sensitivity and are proposing that sunscreens with retinyl palmitate carry a warning.

Other common ingredients, Para-aminobenzoic acid or benzophenones, are reported to cause skin irritations and allergies and are suspected of increasing free radical production in sunlight which attack skin cells accelerating the ageing of the skin. [4]
