Summer is right around the corner and now is the time to prepare. Hitting the beach with pasty, pale, skin is not ideal. I am a big believer in self tanner, glowing skin without harmful UV rays.
Self tanner can be tricky and you don't want to look orange or streaky. Follow these steps for a perfect look.
1.) Take a shower and use a scrub head to toe.
2.) Towel dry.
3.) Apply a plain, unscented moisturizer to the driest areas of your body: elbows, knees and ankles.
4.) Let the moisturizer absorb into skin.
5.) Apply yourself tanner! (Apply it on top of the moisturized areas as well.)
6.) Wash the palms of your hands.
Before you can apply self tanner you will, of course, need to pick one. There are so many options; I will help you break it down.
Gels are the fastest option, they absorb and dry very quickly.
Mousse is very light and works great for oily skin. But be careful - the mousse can absorb into your hands, wear rubber gloves when applying.
A spray will help you get even coverage on your hard-to-reach areas.
Towels make everything easier and these also have an exfoliating effect!
Self tanners with a gradual effect are the best for the mistake prone. But, you need to be diligent, they won't give you a deep glow. You need to use them more regularly.
