People require different tan treatment processes depending on the type of the skin, that is, normal, dry, or oily skin. As such, it is important to ensure that precautionary measures are taken when using such lotions. This keeps your skin fit and healthy always. The first and foremost point is the verification procedure of a tan. There are many companies, which tend to reproduce under-quality products in the market due to their greed.
You can avoid such fraudsters by buying a tan product from designated outlets or from a reputable company. The product must also have a mark of quality which is usually put by accredited regulatory bodies. If a product has a mark of quality, it only means that approved government specialists have tested the product and confirmed it is safe for human skin.
The first benefit associated with having a spot test is the fact that you will be able to have a clue on the final appearance. Apart from that, you will be able to know whether the tan will cause problems with your skin. Some people tend to be allergic to some of the substances used in the manufacturing of these tanning lotions.
When taking the shower make sure that you use a body scrub since they tend to remove all of these unwanted substances. When you exfoliate your skin, choose a body scrub that does not contain any forms of oils. Apart from the debris and dead skin, the oils also tend to hinder the tanning product from adhering completely.
Oils and dead skins block pores making the skin not to breathe properly. Always opt to use moisturizers especially on the hard and rough areas. The skin tends to absorb the tan more easily when it is moist and soft. Most importantly, make sure you moisturize the hard parts of the body. The other parts can be applied a tan without moisturizing.
Apart from shaving, you may want to apply a moisturizer in some body parts before tanning. Choose one that does not contain substances that may block the skin pores. The moisturizer helps the tan adhere effectively on the skin making it to last longer and appear perfect. Apart from that, the moisturizer makes the tanning product spread evenly on skin.
The folded skin parts tend to collect more tan thus making the area appear darker than required. You may also want to have a towel present to wipe any of the excessive tan that might collect on a specific area. Using a glove or a loofah helps prevent staining of parts such as the palms and hands.
