Achieve a Natural Looking Tan from a Sunless Tanning Lotion

Is it really possible to get the best tan from a lotion without exposing skin to the dangerous UV Rays of the sun?

Yep! there are a lot of ways to achieve the nice sun-kissed skin you're looking for.

One way is by using a sunless tanning lotion.

There are many products in the market that can give you different shades of tan, that also offers different additional benefits besides giving you a bronzed skin.

Cellex-C Bio Tan Sunless Tanning Gel 240ml is one of the best tanning product out there that gives you a natural looking tan. Bio-Tan is a glistening peach-colored, oil-free gel containing natural sugars and amino acids. This luxurious, silky formulation represents a real advance in the creation of a sunless tan. Bio-Tan works at a deeper level than other self-tanning products.

Most tanning lotions works on the outermost layer of the skin but Bio-Tan's unique proprietary process creates color that projects from ‘within the skin’ in a similar way that the color of a natural tan radiates from the skin’s melanin pigment. This simulates the translucent glow associated with a naturally induced suntan.


1. A totally unique, self-tanning formula that mimics a genuine golden sun tan.
2. Contains DHA (dihydroxyacetone), most often derived from sugarcane or sugar beets. This natural sugar derivative, when applied to the skin, reacts with amino acids in the skin’s surface layers to create a tan-like color. DHA is safe and has been used in self-tanning products for over 35 years. Researchers have now perfected the level of DHA to produce an authentic looking color that closely emulates a real sun-tan.
3. Contains erythrulose, a natural sugar and self-tanning agent which acts synergistically with DHA to produce a longer lasting, even tan with an attractive sun-bronzed color.
4. Contains melanin, naturally extracted from cuttle fish ink. Melanin is an excellent anti-oxidant and free-radical neutralizer.
5. Contains walnut extract. Traditionally used in skin treatments because of its fungistatic and astringent properties. It also contains a natural colorant, which imparts a subtle brown tint.
6. Contains tyrosine, an amino acid that, when combined with tanning sugars, produces a quick and uniform looking tan. The color produced is amazingly close to that of a natural sun-tan.

Oh did I forget to mention it's in a Gel form and their is a very specific way on applying it.. Takes a little more work than most sunless tanning lotion but it's worth your effort once you see the results and you may be surprise that it's your best tan ever!

Here's how you apply Bio-Tan

Step 1. The secret to this natural looking tan is exfoliation. Exfoliate your skin with Cellex-C Speed Peel & Polish Gel before applying or re-applying Bio-Tan. It makes all the difference.

Step 2. Spread a generous amount of Bio-Tan Gel over your face and neck. Avoid eye area, eyebrows and hairline.

Step 3. Do not blend at this stage. Allow one minute for the product to be absorbed into the upper layers of your skin. Then, gently massage any excess gel into your skin. Use the same procedure for other areas of your body. Wear a loose, old T-shirt and baggy pants until step 6 is completed.

Step 4. Wash your hands with warm water and soap immediately after applying Bio-Tan. Then, using the sponge wedgie provided, apply the gel to your fingers and back of your hands if desired.

Step 5. Apply an oil-free moisturizer to your face—Cellex-C Sea Silk—or to your body—Body Sheen & Toning Gel—to give your skin an extra glow. If your preferred moisturizer contains oil, wait 20 minutes before applying it as it may interfere with the color development.

Step 6. After 3—4 hours, gently wipe your skin with a warm, damp washcloth. This will remove excess superficial color left on the surface of your skin. You will notice how the tan now reflects through your skin giving a totally natural light golden tanned appearance. If a deeper tan is desired, repeat the application of Bio-Tan.

Step 7. To keep your tan looking fresh and natural, exfoliate every 2—3 days with Cellex-C’s Speed Peel & Polish Gel and then reapply Bio-Tan following the same steps as before.

Two thumbs up for this product!

My skin is really pale and when I go to the beach an tan, I usually end up looking like a lobster.

But this lotion gave me a nice golden glow, not so dark tan, but it's natural looking.

I'm pregnant right now so I stay away from tanning lotions at the moment.
