We see sunkissed beauties all over the place, especially in the media. Sometimes it can seem so hard to replicate the perfect golden tan, but this article will tell you the secrets of how to get a supermodel-worthy glowing tan.
Review Your Options:
Everyone knows the basic options that you have when you want to get a tan. You can spend lots of time outside in the heat, you can go on a sun-bed, you can use self tanning lotion, or you can get a spray tan. Going out in the sun is not always an option and both this and spending time on the sunbeds can cause great harm to your body if the right precautions are not put in place.
Using a self tanning lotion can be really tricky, as there are lots of places on your body that you just can’t reach. Even if you get someone to help you, the result usually ends up patchy and streaky.
The best option, therefore, is to go for a spray tan. This type of tanning is when you are completely sprayed with a tanning formula, leaving a smooth and even result that you will be proud to flaunt.
There’s nothing worse than going for a spray tan and not getting the result that you desire. You should always make sure you prepare your body appropriately in order to get the optimum, beautiful results that you see on all of the celebrities on the TV.
First of all, you’ll need to exfoliate your skin, which will help to eliminate any dead skin cells and stop the formula from collecting in rough areas of your skin, such as your knees. There are many exfoliation tools on the market today, but you can also get exfoliating body scrubs that will do the trick and leave you with a flawless result.
Next, you’ll need to make sure you shave or wax off all of your unwanted hair. Shaving or waxing after having your tan done means you can diminish the beautiful results and leave you looking patchy, with flakes of the tan color coming off.
Some last minute things you might need to do include making sure there are no lotions, moisturizers or deodorants on your body. This could make the spray tan less likely to bind to your skin and will therefore lead to an undesirable result. You should also make sure you wear clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting the tanning lotion on, as often it can come off onto your clothes.
Once you’ve got the perfect sunkissed tan, the only thing left to do is flaunt it. Tell all your friends and make sure you have a makeup shade that compliments the color of your tan. If you wear the tan with celebrity level confidence, you will be the envy of all of your friends and family. You’ll just want to keep coming back for more.
