Self tanners are always a great way to get your tan done. True, sunbathing and indoor tanning are the most common ways to getting a tan; however, they can be dangerous in the long run. It’s been found that consistently exposing yourself to the sun’s rays can lead to higher chances of getting skin cancer. Skin cancer has risen to the fourth most common cancer found across the globe. With that in mind, tanning addicts have been looking for other means of getting tanned skin.
Thus, self tanners have gained quite a traction due to the healthiest approach to getting tanned skin. While this is a healthy approach to getting a tan, it can be very tricky to work around with self tanners. One inconvenience is having patchy streaks or uneven tone. Here are some ways to get around the tricky process of applying self tanners:
– Make sure to lightly dab the tanner to your skin. If you have a pale complexion, do not put on a lot of tanner immediately. Try to gradually add in the tone to avoid oversaturation. You will also need to start with areas that can easily be sorted out. For beginners, it’s good practice to start from the bottom, going up.
– Make sure to use a clean tanning mitt. Old tanning mitts or those that weren’t cleaned properly can get in the way to getting a good self tan. If you use a tanning mitt that still has leftover self tan, this can cause unwanted patches that can get in the way to an even tan.
– Make sure to exfoliate beforehanf. When you do your self tanning without exfoliating, you can get uneven tone that can be easily shed off in a few days due to your self tan peeling off.
