As summer approaches, we all want to get that golden glow – but without damaging our skin. There is no shame in faking it until you make it in the world of tanning.
The question: can a fake tan really make you look more toned?
The answer: yes!
A tan can make you look more toned and slimmer. It creates a natural glow and can even reduce pigmentation on darker skin. Get instantly slimmer-looking legs or a toned tum in a matter of minutes.
Here are some top tips to get the perfect bronzed glow:
Use a washcloth to exfoliate skin prior to applying a self-tanner. Using an exfoliating product also will help remove dead skin cells.
2 Dry your skin
A self-tanning product goes on evenly when your skin is dry, so avoid applying moisturisers or deodorant before you apply it.
3 Apply in sections
Apply the self-tanner in sections. Massage it into your skin in a circular motion to create an even look.
4 Wash your hands after each section or use gloves
You will avoid those Niknak-orange palms by washing your hands with soap and water after you finish applying the self-tanner to each section of your body. Gloves are probably your best bet.
5 Give your skin time to dry
Wait at least 10 minutes before getting dressed. For the next three hours, wear loose, dark clothing and try to avoid sweating.
