How To Apply Sunless Tanner | A Simple Way To Get Tan
Don’t want to go to the tanning salon? Get perfectly tanned skin by following these steps for applying sunless tanner.
Step 1: Exfoliate Your Skin
Remove the dry, outer layer of skin with a:
- Wash cloth
- Body polisher
- Exfoliating cloth
Focus on thicker areas of skin like your:
- Back of hands
The thicker areas of the skin have more dry skin. This is why you need to make an extra effort to exfoliate these areas. If you don’t, the dry skin will peel off and give you an uneven tan. So you better put your back to it if you want an even tan.
Step 2: Apply Sunless Tanner
- Bathe first
- Apply sunless tanner immediately after
- Wash hands when finished
- Exfoliate skin if certain areas seem too dark
Taking a bath will wash off the dry skin from your body. Since you’re using your hands to apply the sunless tan, rinse it off thoroughly so your hands won’t look darker than the rest of your body.
Step 3: Moisturize Your Skin
- Moisturizes after self-tanner dries
- This helps ensure an even, long-lasting tan
Since you exfoliated your skin and applied a sunless tan, your skin may be pretty dry even if you have taken a bath. Moisturizing your skin will lock in the sunless tan and act as a covering while it’s still fresh.
