Tanning creams and lotions have come a long, long way since they first hit grocery store stands. What used to make you look like an Oompa Loompa, can now give you a natural looking tan without any UV exposure. To get the most natural look out of a tanning cream, the application process is the most important. Use this brief step-by-step explanation:
- Step 1: Shave and Exfoliate
Before you rub any tanning lotion into your skin, make sure that you shave and exfoliate. The smoother your skin is, the more likely the lotion is to adhere to it and last.
- Step 2: Moisturize
Try moisturizing your skin before you apply lotion focusing on areas like your elbows and knees. By getting rid of any dryness, you can get a smoother finish.
- Step 3: Application Time
Start from your feet all the way up to your bottom and rub the lotion into your skin in a circular motion. Rub the lotion into your skin until you can’t feel any more moisture. Wash your hands immediately afterward and scrub in between your fingers and fingernails so that they aren’t stained.
If you are too scared to try a tanning cream or lotion, you have another option: a spray tan. By going to a professional studio, you can get the perfect shade of tan practical hand painted onto your skin to help accentuate your hard-earned muscles.
