Why You Should not Rush Self Tanning

With the wintry months here, it’s impossible to get any tanning down if you rely on sunbathing. While indoor tanning is a good option, it’s not the healthiest. Thus, we turn to self tanning if you want to sport tanned skin during the cold months.
Self tanning is the method of getting a tan without relying on the sun or UV rays. This is a topical approach, so it can be a very tedious task. Since it is very tricky to work with self tanners, it’s not a good idea to rushing in. As the title says, here are reasons why you shouldn’t be too quick in handling self tanners:
Very important tip; make sure to exfoliate your skin before you tan. You want to get rid of the old tan while also helping your new tan last longer.
You can easily get streaks. Self tanning streaks can be easily remedied by dabbing the dark spots with some lemon using a cotton ball. However, to avoid getting streaks in the first place, it would be best to avoid rushing on putting the tanner to your skin. Dab slowly and build up the color of the tan until you get the desired shade.
Since self tanners are applied to your skin, it’s important to remember that it takes time for the tanner to dry on your skin. The best time to put on your self tanner would be at night, preferably during the weekends if you have no plans. Make sure that you apply your self tanner is a well ventilated room to avoid sweating or making it dry too quickly due to the cold. If you are rushing your self tanner, you may stain your clothes or your furniture. For better results let the tanner sit overnight to prevent this from happening.

Skincare Tips to Save Money

With so many things in the market, trying to be spendthrift with what we have is quite a tall order. Taking better care of our skin can cost quite a buck to our wallet. However, having a good skin care regimen doesn’t always mean you have to put in a lot of money to very expensive skin care products. At times, even skin care products aren’t the solution to how to take better care of your skin.
If you want to enjoy great skin without spending so much, here are some tips you can consider doing:
– Your skin needs just as much sleep as your entire body does. If you aren’t keen, skipping on the actual amount of Z’s is going to cause your skin a lot of harm. Try to clock in at least eight hours of sleep to really provide your skin with enough rest.
– Avoid overdoing on makeup. We know that we look our best with some highlights but there are days where you must avoid putting on the layer of foundation and whatnot. Makeup can cause a lot of skin care concerns if you overdo it. If you aren’t going out, try not to put even a light layer of makeup. This helps your skin ‘breathe’ from the layers and layers of makeup that you put on daily.
– Watch what you eat. We’ve said that you are what you eat. If you take in a lot of junk food, it’s going to react negatively with your skin. Try to take in some omega 3 rich food such as salmon and walnuts to aid on the overall suppleness of your skin, and some fruits to make it glow.
– Try to make use of home alternatives for the commercial skin care products. You’re going to be surprised what you can do with some honey and oatmeal. Try to scour the net for some home remedies to save a lot on your skin care regimen.

How to Self Tan Without Ugly Streaks

Self-tanning can be quite a tedious approach to getting one’s tan. Normally, you’d get your share of bronze skin through sunbathing and indoor tanning. While these are the usual methods to tanning, these methods are also very unhealthy. Did you know that consistently exposing to UV radiation can heighten the chances of getting cancer? Sunburn and uneven tanned skin may not be the only harm that we’re going to experience if we aren’t going to be keen on the methods of our tanning. Thus we have to rely on self tanning to get our tanning done.

Since self tanning is a method of applying the tanner to your skin, beginners can experience ugly streaks. Additionally, one can also experience a lot of uneven skin tone if not done correctly. In order to avoid these kinds of results, here are some ways to get a great self tanning experience without having to worry about the mishaps:

– Make sure to dab the self tanner to your skin slowly and gradually. Putting on a thick layer will only cause it to run thus resulting in streaking. Make sure to dab lightly until you get the desired saturation of the tan.

– Start from the bottom and work from there. But doing your feet first, you can also bending over and trying to applying the tanner on the lower part of your body. If you start at the top, putting on tanner by yourself can cause your skin to crease and even the tanner on your skin to run. This makes very unsightly tanning marks.

– Make sure that your room is well-ventilated to avoid sweating which can cause your self tanner to run. Sweating or even crying causes your skin to wash the tanner off which can leave embarrassing trail marks that can take some time to be sorted out.
