So you want that beautiful look of a sun-kissed tan without any of the damaging UV radiation that the sun can provide. The good news is that there are some great options out there for self-tanning! With self-tanning, you can create a gorgeous bronze tone without hurting your skin or body and do it easily and safely. The best self-tan only takes a few steps and can be done in the comfort of your home with gentle, nice products and a cozy environment. So put on some music, light a candle or two and create a gorgeous skin tone. Here’s how to self-tan, the right way.
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
The first step to get the perfect self-tan is to make sure that you get everything else out of the way first. Exfoliating your skin and shaving are great things to do before applying your self-tanner, but not after, because they can remove your beautiful tan and ruin your hard work. So before you get started applying any kind of self-tan, make sure to exfoliate to remove any dead skin and get shaving out of the way! Using an exfoliating mitt is a great way to polish and buff away those dead skin cells for the ultimate pre-tan prep. Make sure to shave and exfoliate 24 hours before applying any self-tanner for the best results. With your skin cleanly shaven and fresh from exfoliating, you’re ready to get your tan on!
