Tanning Tips For A Natural Sun-kissed Glow

If you love having a glowing bronze complexion, one option is to hit the beach and let the sun do all the work. However, this tanning technique can have side effects — painful sunburns and an increased risk of skin cancer. Another option is to go for sunless tanning techniques. As a matter of fact, many celebrities use sunless tanning techniques to get that sexy, sun-kissed glow throughout the year. However, you have to be really careful when using sunless tanners. To avoid tanning disasters, here are some tips to achieve that bronze model look:

Never Overdo It

Unless you want to look all orangey, you should never apply too much tanning creams, lotions, or sprays. Same goes with tanning beds — don’t overcook yourself. If it’s your first time to use sunless tanning sprays, let a professional apply the stuff to your skin to achieve a natural-looking glow.

Avoid Shaving Before Using Tanners

This tip is applicable to those with sensitive skin. Because shavers can get abrasive, applying a tanner to a newly shaved leg may lead to irritation. If you wish to shave before applying a tanner, try to do it days before the actual application.

Wear Gloves

Inexpensive medical gloves can help protect your hands as you apply a sunless tanner all over your body. To make sure that your palms won’t turn dark, wash your hands thoroughly after the application process. Some of the tanning cream or lotion can still seep through the gloves, making your palms look darker in the process.

Don’t Forget Sunscreen

Not all tanning products have sunscreen so it’s best to apply skin care products with lots of SPF after getting that bronze complexion. Even if your tanning lotion says that it has sunscreen in it, don’t hesitate to purchase a separate bottle of sunscreen. You can never go wrong when it comes to protecting your skin against the cancer-causing rays of the sun.

Let Your Skin Absorb the Tanning Product

If you’re planning to use makeup or cosmetics on your skin, let your skin fully absorb the tanning product first. Depending on the type of cream or spray you use, it might take hours or even a whole day before you could see the full bronze effect.

Aside from the latest fashion looks, hair styles, and accessories, celebrity style also involves a flawless complexion with that sun-kissed glow. But to get that natural healthy look, make sure that you apply tanners carefully. Once you’ve mastered the basics behind the application of sunless tanners, you’re sure to get that bronze complexion you’ve always dreamed of.
