Cosmetics to imitate a summer tan.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA.


Over the past century, tanned skin shifted from being unpopular to becoming the height of fashion. However, the past decade has again seen white skin become fashionable as more and more people become aware of the dangers of spending too much time in the sun. Even so, having tanned skin is still popular and probably will be for some time to come. This article will focus on cosmetic products that are designed to simulate tanning of the skin by coloring or staining the skin without sun exposure.
