Frequently Asked Questions
How does Mykonian Sun work?
Mykonian Sun works with Peptide technology which stimulates the production of melanin and activates the natural tanning process. In this way, the 'active' which is the Peptide contributes to an even tan and induces the skin to build up its own natural UV protection.
What's the best way to use Mykonian Sun?
For best results: apply 4-5 days before sun exposure to activate melanin production and achieve maximum results with minimum UV rays. Your melanin levels will start to increase and build your natural glow.
All skin types vary so people with fairer skin may notice it may take a little longer before melanin production is visible, compared to people with darker skin.
What is Melanin?
Melanin is a natural complex Polymer derived from the amino acid Tyrosine. Melanin is responsible for determining skin and hair colour and is present in the skin to varying degrees.
UV rays activate the tanning process by increasing melanin synthesis which protects your skin from the sun. The more tanned someone is the more melanin levels they have in their skin. It is essentially your skin's natural defence mechanism.
How will this product help with the tanning process?
The peptide technology in the Mykonian Sun formula works by stimulating the natural tanning process of the skin while protecting it from the short and long-term effects of UV radiation.
As a result, you will develop a naturally enhanced beautiful glow. It is NOT a fake tan and therefore it will not leave you with streaks or patches of colour. Mykonian Sun is an accelerator which stimulates your natural melanin levels.
What is a Peptide?
