A Winter Tan With the Help of a Tanning Lotion

Winter is here down under. For those wanting stronger rays for a sun kissed complexion, they’ll either need to take a mid year holiday to the north, or head to a tanning booth and expose yourself to radical skin damage (which we don’t recommend as it hugely increases the risk of skin cancer).

The other more economical option is a tanning lotion.

Tanning lotions have come along way since the grotty orange carrot look. Technology has progressed greatly during the past 20 years in the cosmetics tanning industry and you can now find natural products available that can help nourish your skin while giving it that extra boosts of pigment.

Subtle bronzed skin is a hit no matter what the season is. You can now obtain that gorgeous golden glow in the winter by using safe affordable methods and by following these easy sunless tanning tricks.


 

Natural Tanning Lotions

If you’re in definite need of a little bit of colour, you can turn your attention towards tanning lotions.  Achieving that perfectly tanned skin look is no easy task. Applying a tanning lotion incorrectly can lead to the development of an irregular tan, which is your worst nightmare. Use high-quality products for best results and try to take the following tips into account if you want to look amazing:

1) Invest in a high quality natural tanner

I wouldn’t speak for all products, but for a tanning lotion, you do get what you pay for. Stay away from cheap supermarket tanners. Not all tanning lotions will offer your skin the same benefits and results, so try to invest in a high-quality tanner that will provide a much more efficient tan without causing the skin to dehydrate.

2) Remove unwanted Hair

Remove unwanted hair before applying a tanning lotion as this way you’ll be able to apply the tanner much more even and the lotion will glide on easier. There are a variety of hair removal methods, but if you choose waxing it’s best to allow the skin a few days before you use a tanning lotion to avoid rashes.

3) Exfoliate your skin Beforehand

Get rid of all the dead skin cells for an even finish. Reduces the chances of skin blotchiness. Make sure to concentrate on extra dry or rougher areas of the skin, such as around the elbows, knees or the heels

4) Moisturise skin thoroughly and then apply the tanning lotion.

This helps the tanning lotion to spread more evenly over your skin. Same as when you exfoliate, moisturise well the dry areas of the skin as they will absorb a higher quantity of tanning lotion due to being dry, and the area might become darker than the rest of the body. Wait for the moisturizer to be completely absorbed into the skin before applying the self-tanner.

5) Apply the tanning lotion evenly all over the body.

These lotions contain a substance which colors the skin, so it’s best to apply it uniformly and without any mistakes because if you obtain an uneven tan, it will be difficult to touch up missed spots.

6) Maintaining the tan for longer

Once you skin is tanned, you can maintain your glowing look for longer by making sure you aren’t using skin care products which exfoliate the skin. Tanning lotions only tan the surface of your skin and by using an exfoliant (including Retin-A, AHA, glycolic acid creams) you’ll only manage to remove your precious sunless tan. The effect of a tanning lotion only lasts for up to 10 – 20 days, depending on the product you use and by using exfoliation creams you’ll only accelerate the removal of your tan.
