How To Apply Flawless Self Tanner

Self-tanning has become increasingly popular in recent years as people want to achieve a sun-kissed glow without exposing themselves to the harmful effects of UV radiation from the sun. However, applying self-tanner can be tricky, and it’s easy to end up with streaks, blotches, and uneven patches. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some tips and tricks to help you apply self-tanner flawlessly.

  1. Prepare your skin.

Before you apply self-tanner, it’s essential to prepare your skin properly. Start by exfoliating your skin with a gentle scrub to remove any dead skin cells, which can cause streaking and unevenness. You can also use a loofah or dry brush to help exfoliate your skin. Be sure to pay special attention to areas like your knees, elbows, and ankles, which tend to be drier and can absorb more tanner, leading to darker patches.

  1. Moisturize.

After exfoliating, moisturize your skin with a lightweight lotion. This will help create a smooth, even base for the self-tanner to adhere to. Be sure to apply moisturizer to your knees, elbows, and ankles as well.

  1. Use the right formula.

There are many self-tanner formulas available, from mousses to sprays to lotions. Choose a formula that works best for you and your skin type. If you have dry skin, for example, you may want to opt for a lotion or cream-based formula that provides additional hydration.

  1. Start with a small amount.

When applying self-tanner, it’s always best to start with a small amount and build up gradually. This will help you avoid applying too much and ending up with a dark, unnatural-looking tan. You can use your hand, a tanning mitt or gloves to apply the self-tanner, how ever you apply it be sure to blend it in thoroughly. You can also mix your self-tanner with moisturizer to dilute the color and make it easier to apply.

  1. Take your time.

Take your time when applying self-tanner, and work in small sections. Start at your feet and work your way up, applying the self-tanner in circular motions. Be sure to blend it in thoroughly and pay special attention to areas like your knees, elbows, and ankles.

  1. Don’t forget to blend.

Blending is key to achieving a flawless, natural-looking tan. Use circular motions to blend the self-tanner into your skin, and be sure to blend it in thoroughly, especially around areas like your hairline and eyebrows.

  1. Wait before getting dressed.

After applying self-tanner, wait at least 10-15 minutes before getting dressed to allow it to dry fully. Avoid tight-fitting clothes that may rub against your skin and cause streaking.

  1. Maintain your tan.

To maintain your tan, moisturize your skin regularly and avoid exfoliating too frequently, as this can cause your tan to fade faster. You can also touch up your tan as needed with additional self-tanner.

Applying self-tanner can be a great way to achieve a sun-kissed glow without exposing yourself to harmful UV radiation. By following these tips and tricks, you can apply self-tanner flawlessly and enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking tan all year round.
