A WOMAN has revealed that she loves going on sunbeds and is “addicted” to using nasal sprays to get her dark glow.
A mother named Natalie explained that she goes on sunbeds two or three times a week and uses nasal sprays, tongue drops and accelerator creams to maximise her tan.
Such sprays and drops contain specific ingredients that are absorbed into the skin to encourage the movement of melanocytes to the surface of the skin, maximising the tanning potential of a sunbed session.
But despite the dangers and risks involved with such tanning practices, the beauty fan recently took to social media to show off her tanning routine.
Posting on TikTok under the username @natalie_larose93, Natalie shared the clip with the caption ‘I’m addicted to it.’
In the video, we saw the blonde beauty use her nasal spray, as she took off the lid and sprayed two pumps into each nostril.

Natalie later explained: “I also use the tongue drops and mouth spray with the nasal and my results are insane.
“I don’t use them daily, only when I use the sunbed and that is no more than two/three times a week.”
Natalie’s clip has clearly left many open-mouthed, as it has quickly amassed 51,800 views.
It has 241 likes, 91 comments, 63 saves and 41 shares.

While some were eager to comment on Natalie’s lovely tan, others were eager to express the dangers of such tanning activities.
One person said: “Will cause an increased risk for cancer.”
Another added: “So bad for you” to which Natalie replied “They can be but it’s my choice and it’s not affecting anyone else at the end of the day.”
A third commented: “Don't, it could damage your nose and close up for good.”
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), sunbeds are as dangerous as smoking.
Like the sun, they give out harmful UV rays that damage the DNA in your skin cells.
Over time, this may lead to malignant melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – studies have shown.
According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), there is significant evidence to show that using tanning beds causes melanoma.
They report that sunbeds increase the risk of skin cancer by up to 20 per cent, and also state that they have no positive benefits to our health.
Cancer Research backed this statistic, adding that " there is no such thing as a safe tan from UV radiation".
When it comes to nasal sprays, some nasal spray sellers insist their products are safe – but the British Association of Dermatologists' Dr Catherine Borysiewicz says the only safe tan is fake tan.
She said: These products have not been studied properly, you don’t know what you are using, that’s the bottom line.
"These products are very, very dangerous. They can potentially lead to cancer.
"I talk about the skin risks, but who knows what else it might be doing. It’s incredibly worrying.
"If you’re using Melanotan, stop. Don’t use it any more and really importantly make sure your skin is assessed and checked.
