If you are like me and the ” summer glow ” is starting to diminish you maybe considering applying a self tanner BUT you hesitate because you are scared you might end up looking like an Orange stripy former version of yourself !!
Never fear, here are my tips to create the “glow”
For best results,
- Exfoliate first. Before using a sunless tanning product, wash your skin to remove excess dead skin cells. Spend a little extra time exfoliating areas with thick skin, such as your knees, elbows and ankles.
- Apply in sections. Massage the product into your skin in a circular motion. Apply the tanner to your body in sections, such as your arms, legs and torso. Wash your hands with soap and water after each section to avoid discoloring your palms. Lightly extend the product from your ankles to your feet and from your wrists to your hands.
- Wipe joint areas. The knees, elbows and ankles tend to absorb more of sunless tanning products. To dilute the tanning effect in these areas, gently rub them with a damp towel.
- Take time to dry. Wait to dress at least 10 minutes. Wear loose clothing and avoid sweating for three hours.
