How To Get Tanned Without Being Freckled

Okay! For all those beauties who all have been “blessed” with naturally pale skin and want to get some tan without freckles this article is for you.

Freckles appear because of melanocyte cell. All of just have melanocyte cell in the skin. These melanocyte cells produce melanin and it is this melanin that makes the skin appear darker. If the melanocyte cells produce more melanin your skin tends to appear darker, while if it produces less melanin your skin appears fairer or paler. When you get freckles it means the melanocyte cells in your skin are clustered up in spaces instead of being evenly spread. Clustered up melanocytes also mean that your skin cannot get an even tan. The longer you stay out in the sun your freckles will appear more pronounced.


First off excess amount of sun exposure makes you vulnerable to skin cancer. So try and avoid it as much as possible. But if you must tan try and follow these methods in order to avoid getting freckles.

Just make sure you are following the before and after procedures of these sprays for the best results. Sun less tan lotion or sprays or bronzers as they are called contains melanoidins. And this melanoidin replaces the top layer of your skin. Thus it is also advised that you exfoliate your skin properly before applying the lotion or spray. The tan from these sun less sprays lasts up to 2-3 days. And if you want to keep a good tan on then just keep reapplying the spray.
