How Tanning Pills Work?
A sunless tanning pill will generally contain either caretenoid pigments or tyrosine, or they will prove to be nothing more than hyped up multivitamins.
They work by altering the skin’s pigmentation, though not always in the way one would expect or desire for a tan.
The caretenoid pills works by depositing pigments in fat layers just under the skin, which colors it.
Tyrosine, is a non-essential amino acid that helps skin cells produce melanin.
So decision to use or not to use tanning pills solely lies with you. And only when you are sure that it gives you the desired skin color, you should go ahead with it. Plus, always monitor yourself against side effects.
