Considering tan accelerators rely on ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun to achieve this sunkissed look, it’s unsurprising that Dr Sonia doesn’t deem them safe. “I’m a big believer in taking protective measures against ultraviolet radiation, for example, use of sunscreen and limiting your skin’s exposure to the sun,” she explains. “When you use tan accelerators, there’s a risk from UV radiation. These products don’t provide any sun protection and people who use these products might be more likely to have increased exposure to the sun’s UV rays when they use these products on a regular basis to get a tan. Tan accelerators can, therefore, increase their risk of skin cancer.” Tan accelerators come in multiple forms, from tablets to injections (which are illegal in the UK), but for the purpose of this piece, we will only be talking about lotions.Talking all things tan accelerators, we sat down with Dr Sonia Khorana – a GP with a special interest in dermatology – and Lucy Vose, global head of education at beauty brand Gatineau, to answer all your questions, including whether tan accelerators are safe for the skin, how they work and what they actually are. Further emphasising these risks, the Skin Cancer Foundation states that “tanning is a sign of skin damage”. So your golden glow, unless from a bottle, is as far from healthy as you may have thought. And when it comes to sunbeds, the NHS explains that these are even worse, sharing “the British Association of Dermatologists advises that people should not use sunbeds or sunlamps”. While gradual self-tanner sprays and mousses can sometimes leave you with blotchy and streaky skin—or even worse, looking like an Oompa Loompa—self-tanning drops are fuss-free and take the guesswork out of the process. "What I like about the drops is that you can customize your shade and you have full control over what your color is going to be," says celebrity airbrush artist and Tan-Luxe global tanning expert Alexandra DiMarchi. "They’re the most beginner-friendly because all you do is mix them in with your lotion." Celebrity makeup artist Melissa Hurkman agrees, and also says she prefers them over other formulas since they can seamlessly be worked into your beauty routine.

Using self-tanning drops is one of the safest and most foolproof ways to get a sun-kissed glow year-round. Unlike basking in the sun for hours, self-tanner won't cause damage to the skin and allows you to achieve your desired tan without exposing yourself to harsh UVA/UVB rays.
