HOW DOES IT MAKE ME TAN?
Urucum seeds are famous for their high concentration of antioxidants bixin, norbixin, carotenoids and beta-carotene. These contribute to the formation of melanin, which darkens the skin and helps protect the skin from UV rays.
The deep reddish hue in the seed carries over into the skin. This base of color paired with the higher level of melanin helps accelerate your tan while preventing sunburn.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Take GLOW capsules 1 week leading up to sun exposure to create a base tone and make skin more resilient to increased UVB exposure. As you spend time in the sun, your skin will deepen in that bronze color. Take GLOW capsules after sun exposure to prolong tan. Use ROUCOU body oil for hydration and suppleness of skin.
