This Valentine's Day, the last thing that you want to happen is be left out when it comes to looking at your best. And it would be no surprise if you have plans of getting yourself bronze before that special day.
- Preparation: The most important part of tanning is the way you prepare your body for the tanning session. If you expect to get the best results while using your self-tanner then you have to be thorough with your preparations. And the first thing that you have to do before you take a bath is to exfoliate your body. However, try not to exfoliate on the 13thif February since this is the day when you will be applying your tan. After exfoliating, moisturize your skin to keep it healthy and from drying up. And on the 13th, refrain from applying anything on your body and not even soap or gel when you take a shower. Instead, use an oil-free body moisturizer especially on areas of the body that are prone to drying such as the elbows, the knees, and the feet.
- Contour and Emphasis: Applying a little extra product around your cleavage and your collar bones is a good way of accentuating a sexy contour on your decolage as well as finishing it using a highlighter. Contouring your legs can be done by utilizing a darker shade of tan and applying it in the inner portion of the legs then fading in a downward direction. Doing so will give the impression of longer and slimmer pins. Applying a shimmering powder or oil emphasizes your bronze skin on your collarbone, upper cheekbones and down the center of both your legs. By blending it well.
- Take Your Time:Be patient when applying self tanning products because they take time when it comes to drying as compared to foams. If in case you need more time then you may want to go for lotions and even better if you have someone to help you do the job. Always pay attention to the body parts where you are applying the self-tanning product and try not to rush thins if you want to get a satisfactory result.
- Wash your Hands: Remember to make it a point to wash your hands a number of times during application. On the other hand, using latex gloves and using a damp triangle makeup sponge on the back of your hands is also important since this will keep the self tanner off your palms and will end up being applied only on areas where you want them applied.
Once you are done, wait for at least 15 minutes before you get dressed to keep the tan solution from staining your clothing. And it is only a matter of time before you realize your much anticipated results to flaunt this coming Valentine's Day.
