Avoid Simple Self Tanning Mistakes

By Haywood Hunter

Many years ago, if a person wanted a tan, they had no other option but to dedicate time to sun bathing. Some time in the 1960′s a scientific study was conducted that found a connection between all that sun exposure and skin cancer. Not long after than, self tanning products were developed and placed on the market. While the formula for these types of products isn’t exactly the same as it originally was, they still remain great alternatives for those wanting to tan safely. Thanks to there availability, consumers can purchase these self tanning products for very little money and do the entire process themselves at tropz self tanner, airbrush tanning, designer skin tanning lotion

High quality is important when it comes to self tanning care. Cheap products will provide less than desired results and are just a waste of time and money. For optimal coverage, high end products should be used.

Each person’s skin chemistry is unique. One particular self tanning product may yield great results for one person and horrible results for another. This is it can take trying several different products before the right one is found. Quality is not a factor here, it’s simply a genetic thing.

Preparation of the skin is essential for getting the best results when using self tanning products. All areas of the body should be cleansed, exfoliated and dried well before beginning. Many people even suggest that waiting until the day after to apply the self tanner works best. Exfoliating rids the skin of all the dead skin cells that are built up there. If not cleaned away, dead skin cells can cause a blotchy looking tan.

Once cleaning and exfoliation are done, the self tanning product can be applied. The best way to apply is in small circular motions, doing small areas of the body. Covering the entire body at once is usually not recommended. Working on a single area at a time allows everything to be absorbed completely before moving on to another area. By applying in a circular motion and only covering small areas at one time, the tan will come out more even and flaws will be less likely.

Areas with thicker skin such as knees, elbows and ankles do not have to be covered as thickly as the rest of the body. Many people skin these areas altogether. If self tanning products are going to be applied to these areas though, only a thin layer is needed for deep tanning.

Using the right shade of self tanning formula is one of the most important factors in self tanning. A first time user should take caution and go with lighter shades at first. Lighter shades of self tanning products do not show any flaws as easily, which can happen when first using these types of products. Lighter shades are also great for users who are testing several different products to find the one that suits them best as well.

A few simple tricks is all it takes to be on the path to a gorgeous tan any time of year. This can all be achieved safely, without the need for time in the sun. Correct application of self tanning products can yield a natural looking tan for anyone, any time of the year. Even better, it can all be done at home.
