Achieving A Top Tan

By Martin Davis

As a cancer aware society, we are slowly starting to learn the follies of spending too much time exposed to direct sunlight. As one of the most common cancers, the rate of melanoma skin cancer in Britain has risen faster than all other common cancers; a definite cause for concern. Those with lighter skin face a greater risk of developing skin cancer. Though it might look attractive, a suntan is actually skin damage.

So, what are the alternatives? There are hundreds upon hundreds of fake tans out there for you to test that are no more time consuming and difficult than slathering yourself in suntan lotion and lounging outside beneath harmful UV rays. They come in sprays and lotions, instant and gradual, so there is bound to be something to suit your skin and your lifestyle.

American based brand Fake Bake offers customers a natural, long lasting (up to 50%) tan that helps smooth out skin and create a subtle, sun-kissed glow. With natural tanning agents DHA and Erythulose, Fake Bake also provides anti ageing and anti cellulite ingredients, plus antioxidants to leave your skin dazzling, bright and golden.

So, do you want to know the absolute best way to apply that fake tan in order to make it long lasting and natural looking? It might sound like common sense, but the first thing you should do before anything else, or take good care of your skin. It really needs moisturising at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. Doing this will help you achieve a smooth, satin finish when you get around to tanning. It’s also an idea to exfoliate at least once a week and always exfoliate before applying fake tan. You don’t want to end up with patchy legs!

The last thing you want is orange palms, so don’t be lazy – apply using latex gloves or an applicator mitt to avoid yellowing fingernails and tell-tale hands. Dabbing Vaseline around nearby hair will help you avoid any messy slip-ups on your face; let’s be honest, that’s the last place you want to make it look obvious! Finally, get buffing to iron out any uneven tan build-ups and you’ll be all set to face the day!
