Tanning accelerators are agents that are specifically involved with the actual darkening of the skin. They do not form a coat, instead, they increase the levels of melanin in the epidermal or outermost layer of the skin. Melanin is released from melanocytes and is the pigment which determines the skin color. The more melanin that a person produces, the darker their skin will be.
The manufacturers of these accelerators take full advantage of this knowledge and have developed products to make tanning easier for you. By using the products as directed, you no longer have to spend hours getting a tan on the beach or in a salon. You will see the effects after even limited exposure to sunlight. The ability of these products to provide quick results, also places them under a lot of scrutiny. However, if you know what to look for, you are almost guaranteed an excellent product.
Stick to products with the necessary ingredients. These are the active ingredients, natural oils and skin strengthening vitamins and minerals. Others that have too many “miscellaneous” ingredients are usually less beneficial to the overall health of the skin.

Amino acids and vitamins form an important part of skin care and thus their use in this capacity is often welcomed because of the many potential benefits.
Combine these active ingredients with natural oils and vitamins and you have an excellent product. The vitamins and oils enhance the beauty of the skin by giving even complexion, softening it and making it more healthy. Products with this combination are unbeatable.
