So can you sun tan? It's important to note, that every pregnancy and woman is different, so we by no means are giving out pregnancy advice here, but get out and enjoy some sunshine!
When you’re expecting, the thing you should bear in mind is spending too much time in the sun. Sun baking increases your core body temperature, which should be avoided. This can happen if you lie in the sun for too long, which is why so many mums-to-be love using Melanoboost while they’re pregnant.
It also doubles as a really nourishing body oil. Melanoboost’s Peptide Sun Tanning Oil base isn’t just a carrier oil for our Peptide Complex, it’s a luxe blend of 8 nutrient rich oils carefully selected for their superior skin conditioning properties and light weight textures.
Exposure to the sun and outdoor elements can leave the skin feeling dry, tight and thirsty for moisture. Melanoboost’s oils instantly feed your skin with much needed moisture during UV exposure, with a lasting effect that quashes that dry, after-sun tightness.Our favourite #MelanoBABE Dani Bonnor (@danibonnor) is currently looking perfectly glowing during her pregnancy and loves her some Melanoboost:
Another thing to be aware of when you're pregnant is pigmentation. Many women experience hyperpigmentation on their face during pregnancy, which darkens when exposed to the sun, so put on a hat and make sure you opt for an SPF for the face so you aren’t left with “pregnancy mask”!
Melanoboost Peptide Sun Tanning Oils work topically in the skin, where it is applied. That means it's not systemic and won't enter the bloodstream.
It's designed to assist a deep dark tan with only small, short bursts of sun exposure - no sun baking necessary.
You can still wear sunscreen. In fact, we recommend everyone wears sunscreen on top of their Melanoboost. Sunscreen will help to protect your skin and won't hinder your tan. The point is to avoid burning.
A frequently asked question from our sun tan lovers in the United States is 'can I use my Melanoboost® products in a tanning bed?'
The short answer is yes, you can.
The process starts before your visit to the salon. Apply your Melanoboost for a few days leading up to UV exposure to boost melanin levels. This is designed to prepare the skin for sun exposure and set it up for accelerated sun tanning. This step is key for the deepest, darkest tan in the shortest time.
The first thing you will notice when looking at the Melanoboost product range is the three vibrant coloured bottles of YELLOW, CORAL, and BLUE.
Before we talk about the differences between Melanoboost’s three products, it’s important to understand what is the same. PEPTIDES are the fundamental element that powers the entire Melanoboost product range beyond the capabilities of any other sun tan lotion, oil or cream.
NOW let’s take a look at the differences between the three Melanoboost products.
