Do Self-Tanners REALLY Work?

Gone are the days of fake, overdone orange skin that identifies you with an early 2000s TV show from an east coast shore. Thankfully, skin care has continued to make advancements in both research and technology, and self-tanners have definitely benefited from this progress. Sunless tanners are a great way to get your skin looking beautiful and bronzed without having to bake in the sun for an extended period of time. But do self-tanners really work?

The answer is yes! Self-tanners can provide a natural-looking tan that will gradually darken over several days. With the right application techniques, you can achieve a natural, even tan without any streaks or patches.

Go Sunless For A Better, Safer Tan

Using a sunless tanner is actually much safer than being exposed to UV rays from the sun and can help reduce your risk of skin cancer and premature aging. Self-tanners are formulated with ingredients that interact with the proteins in your skin to create a temporary tanning effect. Depending on your desired level of color and the product you're using, results can last anywhere from several days to a week or more.

Tips For Getting The Best Self-Tan

When using a self-tanner, it's best to apply it in thin, even layers across clean skin. This will help to ensure an even color without any streaks or patches. Another trick is to address any areas prone to dryness with a gentle exfoliator, and make sure to use a non greasy moisturizer in advance of your tanning.

It is important to note that not all self-tanners are created equal, so it pays to do your research and find a product that is specifically designed for your skin type and lifestyle. Darker or lighter, lotion or liquid, there are many choices. Why not try Fake Bake's Airbrush Instant Self-Tan?
