First the experts tell people to stay away from the harmful rays of the sun encouraging tan seekers to look elsewhere.
Now a warning has been issued to users of spray on tan products, and lotions. The Warning comes from Jacqueline McGlade — executive director of the European Environment Agency.
McGlade said “It would be prudent to take a precautionary approach to many of these chemicals until their effects are more fully understood.
Fake tan users can be presented with fertility problems and cancer, due to toxins present in the cosmetic, experts have revealed. Other chemicals found in the creams include Sulphur Dioxide and Benzophenone-3.
The product that is effecting those seeking a bronzed skin tone without exposing themselves to harmful radiation could be affected by the main ingredient in sprays, which is potentially harmful if inhaled.
The substance – known as dihydroxyacetone, or DHA – enters the lungs and is then absorbed into the bloodstream where it could damage DNA and cause tumours.
The side effects are thought to be greater than other beauty products because the tan is applied all over the body several times a week.
The fake tan can have varying effects, ranging from Jaundice, Fertility problems, Digestive biscuit, Cancer, and Birth Defects.
