How tingling sensation is produced?
An important question – you might have asked from your salon specialist or dermatologists – “why I get some addition sensation in skin – other than tan, with these lotions, even I just want my skin to tan?” Basically, tanning lotions are meant to increase the UV exposure to your skin. It also increases the melanin release inside your body. These lotions increase the blood flow of your body – whenever you have some abnormal rate of blood flow – you will always get numbness and tingling sensation- that’s so simple
It is highly recommended for you to always talk about every product – like whatever you are going to apply on your skin, with your dermatologist. Stay safe and have a best life!
