Tan skin is considered desirable by a lot of people, but not everyone has time to bask in the sun to get a glowy tan. This is why people turn to baby oil, as it can help you tan faster, but there are some things to consider before you use it.
Baby oil helps you get a good, even tan fast, since it draws the UVA and UVB rays directly into the skin, while also hydrating your skin. Unlike tanning lotions, baby oil will not leave your skin sticky and doesn’t stain your clothes.
Sunscreen wards off harmful UV radiation, whereas baby oil attracts the harmful rays to penetrate deeper into your skin, which can break down collagen and cause the skin to sag and wrinkle. Baby oil may seem like a quick fix to get a nice tan, but we strongly recommend considering the long-term effects.
