How is a tan created?

Wondering how a tan is created? Well, theoretically the mechanism is the same, but in practice it depends a lot on the cosmetics you use for this purpose. A beautiful shade is created differently when you use bronzers or when you use cosmetics with a tingle effect. And these are just two of the many ways to get the skin tone you want.

A tan is the result of UV rays that penetrate our skin. They reach all the way to the connective tissue and dermis where the melanocytes - the cells that produce the pigment called "melanin" - are located. Through the bloodstream, it reaches the surface of the skin. As a result of a chemical reaction, the cells that are responsible for the pigment become dark in color, and a brown tint is produced on the skin. But how is a tan created with Onyx cosmetics?
