Sunless-tanning formulations are constantly evolving, and new-and-improved formulas feature innovative ingredients that offer more benefits than previous formulations and even better results. There is also a trend toward more natural formulas. Some of the hottest ingredients today include: 
 

  1. CAFFEINE: It provides firming, slimming, and detoxifying benefits. 
     
  2. HYALURONIC ACID: Often referred to as the fountain of youth, it helps firm the skin and leaves it looking supple, plump, and glowing. 
     
  3. MATRIXYL 3000: This complex is made from two peptides, palmitoyl-tripeptide and palmitoyl-oligopeptide, and offers anti-aging and collagen-boosting benefits as well as hydrating properties. 
     
  4. SWEET ORANGE: This gentle ingredient helps enhance the glow on even the fairest skintones for a fresh-out-ofthe-sun appearance. 
     
  5. TOMATO: In addition to improving skin’s color, this carotenoid-rich fruit also helps firm and detoxify the skin.
