Summer is just around the corner so what better way to welcome the endless sunshine than with a healthy glow. There is no need to put your health on the line for bronzed skin, all that is required for a natural sun-kissed look is fake tan.
For a streak-free tan, prepping the skin is a must. Remove dead skin cells by gently buffing your skin using a body scrub and an exfoliating glove or loofah. This step is essential for extending the life of your tan and avoiding nasty streaks. Pay particular attention to areas that tend to be dry, such as your elbows and knees. For the best results, remove unwanted hair at least 24 hours before applying your fake tan.
Moisturising from head to toe is another must do before applying a faux glow. Once again, ensure areas like your elbows, ankles, wrists, knees and feet are lathered with a lovely body lotion. Apply the tan with circular motions and use the product sparingly on those drier areas.
There are so many great tanning lotions that give a natural glow but, the tell tale sign of a fake tan is orange hands. Apply your tan with a glove or simply remember to wash your hands thoroughly after the process is complete.
If possible, go au naturel for 15 minutes after applying the lotion. After your tan has dried wear loose fitting clothes to avoid rubbing the tan off in parts. Black maxi dresses are a great post-tan outfit.
Gone are the days of spending hours on end in the hot sun. For an instant glow and confidence boost, invest in a fake tan!
