Most people agree… even dermatologists… that tans can make people look better… and very simply… when we look better we feel better. So today I’m going to talk about how to get a beautiful yet safe tan.
Tans from UV rays, whether from the sun or in a tanning salon, are dangerous and promote premature skin aging like wrinkling, brown spots and that awful weather beaten look… and they also cause deadly skin cancer. But there IS a safe way to get that tanned look we all love: from a sunless tanner in a bottle.
Sunless tanners, the only way to get a safe tan, give you the best of both worlds… a safe and a beautiful tan. And the reason the new sunless tanners can give you a truly beautiful tan is because the dye ingredients that temporarily and safely impart the desired color to the skin have been perfected to give you a deep, rich natural looking tan completely indistinguishable from a dangerous ultraviolet one.
And here’s a tip that will surely make your sunless tanner work even better: make sure you exfoliate your skin regularly with a gentle glycolic exfoliant to remove uneven accumulated surface dead cells. That’s because self-tanners work by staining the dead surface cells on your skin. Those dead surface cells are supposed to fall off after four weeks, and therefore, the surface should be smooth. But, the cells don’t always do that. They can accumulate into clumps and mounds and when that happens and you put a self-tanner on, the self-tanner stains the mounds and clumps a darker color than it does the areas around it, which can give you an uneven tan from the self-tanner. So for the best results, be sure to exfoliate regularly before use, and of course, use a streak-free product.
However, since those tan dead cells do eventually fall off as well, sunless tanners, like any tan, fade over time, so to maintain your beautiful sunless tan, make sure you apply and reapply it as directed.
So for a beautiful yet safe tan, get yours from a bottle!
