How To Use Bronzer

Respected physician and TV personality, Dr Oz, has warned against the use of self-tanning creams, as they have the capacity to change the molecular structure of the skin. Since damaging the skin through tanning is very last decade, the only option left to us to achieve sun-kissed goldness is bronzer. While there are some brilliant brands on the market, there are tricks you need to know to make sure you don't end up looking like an extra on Jersey Shore. When it comes to bronzer, less is always more. For a perfect (understated) glow, read on.

If you have normal to oily skin, a powder-based bronzer like Pure Romance's 'Sun Of a Beach' pressed powder is the way to go. Powdered bronzer is also easier to apply, so it's a great starting point for beginners. Liquid bronzer is a better bet for dry skin, but cream- and gel-based types can leave you looking streaky if you're not careful. So, be prepared to spend a little time perfecting your technique before you head out the door with your newly sun-kissed skin.
