Reasons Your Self Tan Fade Quickly

Having tanned skin can be very appealing. Not only do have a drastic change in how you look, it’s also the quickest way to getting a makeover. While tanned skin can be easily achieved, it can also be tangible. One of the common hurdles when it comes to tanning is how quickly it can fade. No matter what method of tanning you implore, you’re bound to quickly lose your tan if you aren’t careful.
While the conventional method of tanning is through sunbathing and indoor tanning, we’re going for self-tanning this time around since it’s the healthiest approach to getting a tan. While that makes it a very appealing approach, it’s also very tangible to work with.
Here are some ways why self tan can fade quickly and thus steps to avoid to make the most out of your self tan:

  • Putting on skin care products that contain retinol is a sure way to burn off your self tan. If you weren’t familiar, retinol can not only lighten your self tan but also cause it to erase entirely. When you try to purchase skin care products, make sure to check the labels to avoid using skin care products with retinol.
  • Are you consistently swimming in the pool? If you didn’t know, chlorine is a very fast way to lightening your skin tone. Thus, if you’ve been swimming ever since you’ve gotten a self tan, you’re going to forego enjoying your self tan for a long time. Try to avoid the pool when you’re sporting a self tan.
  • Dry skin is a very fast way for one’s self tan to fade quickly. Why not keep your skin looking great by keeping your body well hydrated as well as putting on moisturizers and creams to keep it from drying up.

Best Way to Highlight Your Face Using Self Tanners

We’ve known that makeup is always complimenting our looks. No matter what event we’re going to, makeup is always a great go-to, but did you know that tanning is a much appealing and less complicated approach. Tanning can give you a semi-permanent approach to improving your look daily.


While you can’t just tan your face exclusively through sunbathing or indoor tanning, we have self-tanning to rely on that. Self tanning is the manual application of a tan, dubbed as a fake tan by some, thus it can work much like how makeup does. Normally, you’d be using bronzers to help contour your tan but since bronzers are wiped off at the end of the day; this is where self-tanners do their work.
Despite being an applied method to tanning, self tanners last for quite some time on your skin thus cut down the time of putting on makeup. Here are some ways to help you contour and highlight using self tanners:
If you want to go for contouring, it’s best to apply a slightly darker tone of self tanner in certain areas. Remember, you’re not limited to your face for contouring so try to practice on which areas you can work out so you can contour well.
For highlight, you’ll want to use less self tanner on the areas you want to be lighter than your normal tan. It can take some time to get this sorted out especially when you’re new to self tanning. While you can’t totally leaves these areas with less tan, putting on a layer of highlighting make up can ease the deficit.
Remember, there’s only so much self tanning can do when it comes to contouring and highlighting your looks. While it may be a semi-permanent application, makeup can still work wonders to help improve your appearance. If you’re new to self tanning, try to experiment on what works best for you.
