Perfect Fake Tan

Get ready for the perfect fake tan this summer.   Let's work on getting a golden glow by using self tanners. Perfect Fake Tan Here comes the sun and what better way to prepare for a sun kissed look by avoiding sun damage from the harmful ultra violet rays.  The first thing to do is prep your skin.  Exfoliate.  If you don't exfoliate properly, you will see dry patches and uneven color.  Exfoliation is important in removing dead skin cells.   Avoid any body scrub that blocks the DHA in self tanners. Self Tanning Steps Apply the product.  The best self tanners have built in bronzers.   A good self tanner product to consider is featured below.  It is made with natural and organic ingredients and you won't have to worry about your skin turning orange.  Apply the tanning cream with a mitt and within 4-6 hours you will have a golden glow.  If you want a dark tan, apply it daily until you achieve the color you desire.  It is recommended to reapply every 4-7 days to maintain your tan.  The best thing is you will have a great tan without the harmful rays of the sun. When applying self tanner to the face, use a sponge and when applying to the body, use a tanning mitt.   Do not go up and down when applying lotion.  It is best to apply in a sweeping motion.    A good self tanning mitt as below is important as it will make your perfect fake tan look better.  The mitt is large enough to protect your hands from staining and creates the perfect finish for a streak free tan.  It also includes a face applicator mitt making it easy to reach difficult areas. After applying self tanning cream to your face and body, observe closely to make sure you achieve a balanced color.  Last, apply self tanner to your hands and feet. Once your tan has been applied successfully, don't get dressed for at least 10-15 minutes.  A fake tan lasts anywhere from 5-10 days.  Chlorine can have your tan fading quicker than ocean and lake water.
