UN­HEALTHY GLOW?

Health & Fitness - - Beauty News -

It’s the sea­son for hav­ing a bit of colour, but some der­ma­tol­o­gists are still hes­i­tant to rec­om­mend self-tan­ning lo­tions. One study by the FDA (US Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion) found 11 per cent of DHA (the pig­ment-pro­duc­ing mol­e­cule) goes beyond the sur­face to reach skin cells in the der­mis and epi­der­mis with ef­fects still un­known. The risk of free-rad­i­cal dam­age on skin was high­lighted by an­other study. For now, choose a self-tan­ner with­out DHA: Tropic Shim­mer­ing Body Oil (£28 for 150ml; trop­ic­skin­care. com) con­tains or­ganic co­conut oil in­fused with golden shim­mer, while Jurlique Sun­less Tan­ner (£24 for 150ml; jurlique.co.uk) leaves a nat­u­ral glow.
