While self-tanning is common for celebrities, it does not mean you cannot look beautiful. Although, it’s not always easy to find the time or money to visit a salon. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways you can apply self tanner at home with little effort. In this article, we will discuss a complete self-tanner routine that you can follow at home.
Wait for a Bright Day
First, you’re going to need some sunlight, so pick a bright day when you can stay outside for at least an hour. It may also help to use a tanning bed or lamp which emits UV rays and helps the self-tanner build quickly and effectively.
Apply Body Oil
Use body wipes or similar moist body cleansing products which do not contain alcohol to remove excess dirt and sweat from your skin. Once your skin is clean, dry it thoroughly before continuing on. Then apply body oil to your skin in a circular motion until it’s glistening. Let the oil sit for 10 minutes before wiping away any residue with the wipes or other moist cloths you have on hand.
Use Self Tanner
When your skin is dry, take a self-tanner and apply it in circular motions for even coverage. Follow the instructions on the product label to make sure you use enough or not too little of the product. There are a lot of different types of tanning products so make sure you are using the right one. It’s also important to be thorough while applying the self-tanner over all areas of your skin to keep from streaking and avoid an uneven finish. Especially in close confined areas like legs, make sure the application is smooth and even. Using a good indoor tanning lotion for legs is highly recommended in this regard. It applies smoothly and gives an even finish. (more…)
