Enhance Your Beauty with Self Tanners

girl-long-hair-white-beautyLooking your best can be difficult you’re unsure of how you want to go about it. While the best and easiest choice to uplift your looks can be make up, you’ll be surprised how getting a tan can boost your look. It’s been said that tanned individuals have a very sultry appeal which is why many individuals have gone through the venture of tanning. While tanning can be a big undertaking, it can also be done in the wrong manner.

Thus, to improve your experience with tanning, you can opt on using self tanners. Self tanners are your topical tan which don’t rely on the sun to tan. Despite being the healthier option to tanning, self tanners are tricky especially if you aren’t careful. Rest assured, here are some tips to consider to enhance how you look using self tanners:

  • Before anything, make sure to exfoliate your skin prior to using a self tanner. You wouldn’t want to have streaks after your self tanning session or have light spots due to patches of skin that peeled off.

 

  • You can contour your look using self tanners. Much like how you contour using make up, self tanners can be used in such a manner. It’s also best if you make use of an airbrush for this move since it controls the amount of self tanner that you apply on your skin as well as the intensity of the tan that you’re painting. Contouring takes practice especially if you’re not sure which areas should be tanned or highlighted.

 

  • Start from light to dark; if you’re a fair person, don’t immediately slap some of the tanner on your skin. You’ll want to gradually put the tan onto your skin to make sure that you’re not overdoing it.

 

With self tanners being available on the market, nothing can stop you from looking your best with a tan.

What Tanning Experts Say About Unwanted Self Tanning Streaks

Getting yourself a tan can be a big step to the much needed boost in confidence. In fact, having a tan is one of the most ideal approaches to achieving a better look. While you can try to cook yourself a tan in your local tanning salon or bathe under the sun for hours on end, using a self tanner is the most ideal way of earning the bronze tone.

bikini-1230511_1280Why is that? Self tanners aid your skin on getting a tan without the need of UV rays exposure. Studies have been conducted around tanning with UV rays and they’ve proven to be quite dangerous; going as far as to inciting cancer on the individual. While that is a grim thought, self tanners have their share of tricky applications. If it’s your first time or you’re a regular, there are still some circumstances that might cause to botch up a good tanning session. With the aid of some experts, here are some tips to guide you to making the best out of your tan:

Before

– Exfoliating before application is the key.

– You’ll have to avoid putting on some moisturizers or lotions since they will block out the self tanner from your skin. These topical hydrators provide a layer of moisture that clashes with the self tanning agent.

During

– Don’t get too active. If you get too active and cause yourself to sweat too much, chances are the self tan will run causing a lot of streaking. If it’s really humid, try to chill in a cool place or wait for the temperature to go lower. You’ll want to avoid any form of sweat for 6 hours since application.

– Never use your bare hands. No one wants to have really orange hands so make the most out of the tanning mitts.

After

– Avoid the pool as best as possible. The chlorine in the swimming pool acts as a bleaching agent so diving into it as soon as the tan sets will surely cause some discoloration in various places.

– Never forget to moisturize. No one likes to see flaky, tan skin.

With these tips to guide you, you’ll get through the streaky approach to self tanning and enjoy the bronze color without having to soak up those pesky UV rays.

Things We Miss Out When Using a Sun Tan

Sunscreen or sun tans are a common application on our skin when we go to the beach or spend a long day under the sun. At times, we think that having some sunscreen is good enough to block out the harmful effects or even the possible discoloration of your skin due to the consistent exposure under the sun.

However, we’ve actually been doing things wrong. Despite the many directions that sun tans provide in their bottles, there are specific tips to remember to make the most out of these topical applications:

– Sun tans work a good 10-20 minutes after they have been applied. This means you’ll need to get them absorbed into your skin before you dive into the waters. Additionally, since the sun tan is a liquid or viscous application, diving into the pool can wash some of it off.

– You’ll need to lather yourself in a lot of it to make it worth. If you’re the individual who wants to avoid little to any chances of tanning, you may want to drench your body in as much sun tan as possible. Studies have proven that most individuals only put a fourth of the amount of sun tan that is ideal. Another tip is to never miss out on a spot, no one wants a nasty burn after their much desired beach trip.

– Sun tan needs to be applied every two to three hours. You’d be surprised to know that much like lotion; sun tan also dries up on our skin. If you’ve been under the sun for quite some time, chances are you’re already without the protection of your sun tan.

These tips should help you out on making the most out of your sun tan.

Skincare Tips Before Tanning

Skincare Tips Before Tanning

 

Did you know that it is far better to have your nail polish on before a tanning session? Even if you have acrylic nails or a gel manicure before you start using spray tan on your skin, the spray tan will not affect your nails. The reason for this is because nails and toenails will be cleaned at the end of the spray tan session which prevents your nails from getting stained.Fashion Girl Portrait

Keep in mind that it will be a better experience for you to get your face or body waxed prior the tanning session. Also refrain from waxing after a spray tan or before your first shower. In addition to this, make sure that threading and waxing procedures of eyebrows and lips should be accomplished before the tanning session too. On the other hand, there is nothing wrong if you want your eyebrows plucked after your tanning session while threading can be done after your first shower after your tanning session.

When exfoliating, make sure to use non-oil based, gritty scrub or a loofah before your tanning session. The last thing that you want is to have uneven patches on your skin due to dead skin residue. Also limit your shaving after your tanning session because shaving is also a form of exfoliation though shaving after the initial shower should not pose a problem.

As a final note with regard to skin and nail care, eyelash extension also does not cause any unpleasant experiences. However, make sure that you apply them before the tanning session or apply them during the same day as the tanning session provided that they are done before the actual session.

When it comes to caring for your tanned skin, the key is to keep it moisturized. And even if you have a darker skin than usual, make sure to use sunblock when going out. Moisturizing lotion with high SPF is a good choice since it gives you sun protection and moisturizing effect at the same time.
