While the weather is warming up outdoors, many are throwing on their summer fashion and realizing they do not want their skin to look so pale. And for those planning a summer vacation, many dread the thought of slipping into a swimsuit looking so white.
Not to worry. This is where sunless tanning lotion can help.
Sunless tanning lotion is a great tool we can all use as a springboard into the summer months, said the spokesperson at Skin Care Heaven, an online skin care store based in San Diego. A quality lotion can look like a real suntan.
The spokesperson pointed out that for those with sensitive skin issues, it is best to get a sunless tanning lotion for the body, and then another, for the face. The top pick in this category at Skin Care Heaven is made by Sun Laboratories. This manufacturer has created different shades their array of products include Sun Laboratories Strictly Faces Self Tanning Cream and Sun Laboratories Self Tanning Lotion. Their mist self tanning products are also popular choices, too.
It is important to note that even with the best products, preparation and application is really important to get that perfect sun-kissed tan, the spokesperson said.
Below are some easy-to-follow steps to get that look.
Use a body exfoliator to remove dry skin to prepare the body for sunless tanning
Apply a very thin coat of a body moisturizer with hands
Apply sunless tanning lotion with a damp sponge
Move the sponge is small circular motions versus up and down to avoid streaks
Following your application, be sure to regularly use a moisturizer in the days and weeks ahead
Avoid hot baths and instead take quick, warm showers then blot dry
Use a gentle facial exfoliator to prepare skin for sunless tanning
Apply a thin coat of a facial moisturizer with fingertips
Use a damp makeup sponge for application
Apply small amounts at a time in circular motions until desired color is reached
Be sure to moisturize on a regular basis to preserve the sunless tanning lotion for as long as possible
When it comes to areas of the body which have wrinkles, such as the knees and elbows, be sure to apply a thin layer of sunless tanning lotion to avoid targeted, unnatural darkness in these zones, said the spokesperson. The best rule of thumb is to take your time with the application so it is done right.
The right self tanning cream can give your body an overall healthy glow even before the first day of summer.
