Our Self-Tanning Tricks and Tips will help you achieve a natural summer glow

There’s nothing more summery than a golden glow all over. There are a variety of tanning methods that can help you achieve a bronzed color without sun damage. Self-tanning is easy when you know the tricks and tips.

Exfoliating your skin will remove dead skin or other debris that can cause streaks or blotches when you apply the makeup. Skip the moisturizer after exfoliating the area. This can dilute the color and cause a goopy, greasy mess. Use Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads Body.

The right sunless tanning lotion, spray, or towelette can give you a natural glow. Self-tanners usually contain DHA. This ingredient darkens skin color between 2 and 6 hours after application. Wait a few minutes after the first application to see if it darkens your skin.

Jane Iredale Tantasia Self Tanner & Bronzer is a great choice for a new user. This moisturizing formula creates a natural glow for the face and body. You can build up the color.

Many people avoid self-tanning because it’s difficult to apply without streaks. Xen Tan Deluxe Mitt is a great applicator. This soft velour mitt allows for a smooth application. It can be used in conjunction with a tanning lotion, spray or mousse.

Mix a few drops with your moisturizer to add a touch of color without going overboard. Build the stain up until you achieve the desired shade. If you accidentally apply too much pigment, exfoliate and use an alcohol-based skin toner.
