Self Tanning Tips for the Holidays

There are still a number of ways for people to get bronzed even during the winter months especially during the holidays. Note that this does not necessarily require spending a lot of money to go to the beach and bathe in the sun until you get your skin tanned or going to your local tanning salon. These days, self tanning has grown popular because it is convenient and the market is saturated with different self tanning products. While a lot have realized the efficiency of tanning products, there are a number of things that you should keep in mind if you want to get the most out of your self-tanning experience.


  • The Right Product: One of the most common mistakes that people make is that they tend to overdo tanning. The right method of tanning yourself is by going for a darker shade in reference to your natural complexion. It is also highly recommended for those who are new to self tanning to pick a product which delivers gradual results than immediate ones until they get used to how the process go.
  • Preparing the Skin: The importance of exfoliating cannot be stressed enough and in fact may already sound like a mantra to you. Exfoliating your skin before you start applying self tanners prevent the possibility of splotches and spots from developing. Rough areas like the ankles, the knees and elbows need to be exfoliated well enough and using moisturizers in these specific areas will make the method easier.
  • Use A Different Product For The Face:While most tanning products can be used throughout the body without causing any side-effects, it would be advisable to use self tanning products that are specifically manufactured to be used on one’s face which are mostly non-comedogenic which means that they are made not to clog your pores.
  • Do Not Spend Much: You do not necessarily have to pick a product of a certain brand just because it is popular. There are products out there that can deliver the same quality but are not as expensive as those who have a brand name. Note that this rule does not only apply on self tanners but other products as well and the company behind a particular product is developed in a high-quality research and development area then it will be good regardless of the brand name.

A self tanner is an efficient way of getting your skin bronzed especially if you want to show off in upcoming family gatherings in this holiday season. Exercising the above tips will make your tanning experience more enjoyable. || window[_
