If you don’t want the risks associated with exposing your skin to harmful UV rays, a quality fake tanning lotion offers an excellent sun-safe alternative. However, getting an even, convincing tan using a self-tanning lotion can sometimes be tricky. Improper or rushed application of fake tan could result in an uneven, streaky, and less than natural-looking colour.
With that in mind, we are going to take a look at some tips that will help you get the best results with a sunless tanning lotion:
Exfoliate- first of all, exfoliate your whole body. Proper exfoliation prevents splotches and uneven fading. Avoid using an oil-based exfoliator as it could cause streaky looks.
Keep The Room Cool And Dry- if the room is warm, you could sweat which will lead to uneven results. Excessive build-up of moisture creates a barrier between the tanning lotion and your skin, which may result in streaks. An air-conditioned room with a dehumidifier is the ultimate setting to ensure the best fake tanning results, although just a cool room will normally suffice.
Bend Your Fingers- for best results, bend your fingers like a claw when applying a sunless tanning product on your knuckles. When tanning the upper part of your hands, make sure all the nooks and crannies are covered by the fake tanning lotion.
Apply Lightly On Ankles And Elbows- the skin of your ankles and elbows tends to absorb more of the product than other areas of your body. Be sure to brush lightly with the product, so these areas won’t develop too dark.
Use Small Sponge Brush For Your Face- it can be intimidating to get the best results with sunless tanning lotion on your face. Use a small sponge brush to contour your cheekbones and other areas of your face. You need to be careful and apply a thin layer of the tanning product on your face.
Use A Back Applicator- unless someone can help you apply the tanning product on your back and other hard-to-reach areas, you need a back applicator. A big mirror can help you when applying the sunless tanning lotion evenly on your back.
Use Bronzers And Body Makeup- regardless of your best efforts, some areas could look uneven. Bronzers and body makeup with matching colours can be used to even out your arms and legs. Choose body makeup that you can remove easily later with warm water and soap.
