For any self tanner product, it will only adhere well on skin if you have cleaned the body of things like salts, oils, and dirt. After you have chosen your Sun Sunless tanning lotion, it will require you to plan on how you will apply it. Of course, you will need to have a great deal of preparing the skin.
It takes practice to understand how you can do the tanning perfectly without causing imperfections. Your first application may be more of experimental than actually applying but with practice, you will be able to know the ins and outs. Some areas can particularly be a challenge to apply especially your back.
You might need a helping hand of another person to do the application on your back if you are doing the process at home. Nonetheless, ensure you prepare both the body and the environment in which you are doing your tan procedure. The skin needs to be cleaned thoroughly, and this time not just removing the dirt but also ensuring that you free the pores of materials that might be clogging them. This is why exfoliation of skin is recommended.[I:http://comsac.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/HaywoodHunter3.jpg]
Because these dry areas like the elbows, knees, and feet tend to resist the penetration of tan, you might also want to apply a little moisturizer or some light normal make up lotion. Generally, moisturizers need not be used when you want to tan your body. The moisturizers, typical lotions, and other skin products you use everyday might need to be skipped during the time you tan the body.
The hair along the facial hairline and the other body needs to be cut. Shaving is done at the correct timing before you put anything on skin. It is advisable you do the shaving and waxing a day or two before you tan. This is in order to allow the skin to heal and become insensitive.
When you exfoliate skin, you allow the ingredients to effectively infiltrate skin and cause the change in color. This color change is temporary and will fade away with time. It may take about five or so day before the self tan color begins to fade away. What happens is that the color comes out when the skin sloughs and removes those dead cells.
Allowing the skin to stay for about one or two days after shaving will ensure that the moment you apply your tan, it will have already healed and not very sensitive. When applying, if there are parts that take a lot of tan, you can use a damp washcloth or towel to wipe away the excess tan. This will prevent some parts from becoming too orangey than others.
Good tan lotions, when applied will show that tinting bronze color for about five days or more. But, those, which show the color for about three or less days, may not be very suitable. You need to choose the right tan product that will show the shade for sometime before it starts fading out.
