Sun-Kissed Secrets: LYCO-BRONZE and the Art of Perfect Tanning

As the winter chill begins to lose its grip, and the promise of spring whispers through the slightly lighter evenings, we find ourselves emerging from the cozy cocoon of the cold season. Picture it: the first spring flowers breaking through the bare earth, teasing us with the vibrant hues of warmer days to come. The mere thought has us dreaming of shedding winter layers, basking in the sunlight, and flaunting our legs in flowy dresses paired with your beloved fluffy cardigans for perfect spring days to come. And here's a little secret to ensure your glow matches the newfound warmth – you know we've got smooth legs covered with the full range of Lycon waxes, here at Beauty Triangle. But did you know that we're also the sole UK distributor of LYCO-BRONZE, the magic potion that turns your dreams of a sun-kissed radiance into a reality. Whether you’re a looking for the perfect glow for at home tanning or a professional needing an exclusive high end professional tanning solution, we have you covered. 

Sun-Kissed Science: Tan Alchemy  

Ever wondered about the wizardry behind a flawless, sun-kissed glow from a bottle? from? Brace yourselves for a bit of science sprinkled with a touch of magic. All Lyco-Bronze self-tanning products harbour the secret duo of Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and Erythrulose, crafting a naturally derived, safe, and sunless tan that's the envy of every sunbeam. 

Dihydroxyacetone (DHA): The Magic Behind LYCO-BRONZE Glow 

DHA, a sugar-like molecule, has been the magician's wand in self-tanning for over four decades. When DHA meets keratin proteins made up of amino acids in the upper skin layers, golden-brown polymers, or as we like to call them, melanoids, begin to take centre stage. This is a chemical reaction called a Maillard reaction that occurs between sugars and proteins. If you’ve ever heated a mixture of cream and sugar together to make a beautifully brown caramel sauce or even baked cookies, then you’ve caused a Maillard reaction. Apply DHA to your skin, and within 2–8 hours, voilà! A natural sun-kissed tan appears. The best part? This tan isn't just surface level; it's substantive, holding on for up to a week as your skin naturally renews itself. 

Erythrulose: The Glow's Best Friend 

Enter Erythrulose, a natural keto-sugar adding its own dash of magic to the mix. This co-active partner in Lyco-Bronze has a few tricks up its sleeve: It plays the role of an anti-streak maestro, ensuring an even tan. Erythrulose leaves a redder shade than DHA leaving a warm natural and never orange shade on the skin.  It also helps reduce skin drying leading to a longer lasting and deeper tanning effect Erythrulose has got you covered in that caramel colour of your sun-drenched dreams. 

Stay Healthy, Glow On! 

The British Skin Foundation report that skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the UK and rates continue to rise. There are 100,000 new cases diagnosed each year, and the disease kills over 2,500 people each year in the UK - that's seven people every day!  

While a natural suntan screams UV-induced DNA drama, A tan from a bottle has no such side effects. Just that beautifully tanned feeling, no sunlight required. Revel in a beautiful, healthy-looking tan without the sun's aging effects or the risk of skin cancer. Just a word of wisdom: though your Lyco-Bronze glow doesn't play bodyguard against UV, so always wear your sunscreen.

Pre-tan Prep: The Key to Flawless Sunless Tan Every Time. 

We all know prepping the skin with a good exfoliating session before applying sunless tanner is crucial for achieving a smooth and even tan. The exfoliation process helps to remove dead skin cells, dry patches, and creates a clean canvas for the self-tanning product. But did you know the type of product you use can greatly affect how your tan will develop. Many contain oils and waxes that can leave a film on your skin, preventing it for getting to those proteins in the skin to react with. Let alone clogging up drain or making your shower as slippery as a ice rink. 

Lycon fruity flavoured sugar scrubs stand out for their effectiveness in this prepping stage. Elevate your skin game with our luxe oil-free sugar scrub! No oily residue, no clogged pores—just spa-quality exfoliation that rinses off like a dream.
