Article details latest generation of sunless self-tanning products

The Wall Street Journal reports (for subscribers) that the newest generation of sunless self-tanning products smells better, looks more natural, goes on more evenly, and helps smooth wrinkles. Some even contain sunscreen. The article details the claims of various self-tanners and lists their prices.

It also points out that the Food and Drug Administration has given approval to external application of self-tanning products with dihydroxyacetone, a color additive commonly known as DHA, but suggests that lotions be used instead of sprays.

That is because people are less likely to inhale a lotion or get it on their lips or in their eyes.
