Fake tanners help you avoid diseases like skin cancer since they do not affect the dermis. Tanners basically change the skin appearance and radiance without affecting the cells. Most tanners tend to wear off after a few weeks. Though self tanners are more advisable, it is necessary that you follow a certain procedure.
There are some simple steps you can follow to have a faultless glow on skin. One common aspect is users should clean their body. It is important to have a clean skin before applying tan products. Prior to application of any tanning lotion, always make sure that your body is clean and free from all sorts of debris and dead skin.
The main aim of cleaning your body before application of tanning product is mainly to help open up the pores. Debris, dead skin, and oils usually block the pores. Tanning products require open pores so as to soak well to skin. When using body scrubs in exfoliating the skin, make sure that you choose the ones that are not oil based. This will avoid adding some oil to your skin.
When tanning your skin, it should not end up being too dark or too light tint. When a tanner is applied carelessly, or you fail to follow a certain procedure, it might not give you the beautiful outlook that you desire. Always be careful when applying the tan and follow the necessary procedure. The first step you should undertake is to wash up preferably using a body scrub.
For the case of facial hair, try to apply some moisturizer on your hairline. Applying a tan on sensitive skin might lead to irritation that will make you feel uncomfortable. Some areas of the body tend to be more sensitive than others. The face is usually the most sensitive part of the body skin, and you may use that part to test the tan product. Patch testing helps determine the suitability of a sunless product.
After taking a hot shower, the body tends to sweat more, thus you should first give it some time to dry out before applying the product. A moist skin could dilute the tan making it drip on skin thus creating streaks. Moisturizer should also be applied to the rough areas of skin such as hands and feet.
Most hard areas of the skin have a tendency of resisting the soaking of tan. Folded areas on the other hand can get too much orangey and proper care is needed when working on these parts. They include areas like the knees, ankles, and elbows. You should be more careful when dealing with these areas so as to avoid having white and black spots after applying the lotions.
