Sunless tanning seems like a great idea mainly because you stay protected from the harmful sunrays.

Tips To Flawless Sunless Tanning

Sunless tan at home will give you the required color without having you worry about rashes, burns, and other such skin issues, which is why it is advisable. However, in order to get the perfect glow without working too hard, there are a few steps that you should follow:

  1. Shave: Your body needs a close shave before tanning in order to become a smooth canvas. Make sure you shave not immediately before tanning but perhaps a day before that. This is important because doing it immediately could cause irritation.
  2. Scrub: Use a gentle scrub for the entire body so that you get rid of all the dead skin cells.
  3. Moisturize: Apply a moisturizer so that you create a soft layer because applying tan on dry skin can cause skin issues while making the tan look really uneven.
  4. Apply: Now comes the time for application. Apply a smooth layer from the toes if you are using a gel or mousse and work your way upward. Aerosol is also a great alternative but it can prove to be quite difficult. Always use a spray in front of the mirror.
  5. Focus on a few areas: Focus on the areas that are exposed to sunlight and apply more amount of product on these areas. You might want to apply a little bronzer as well.
  6. Finish off: Wait for a couple of hours and check the results. Troubleshoot if you are not satisfied. You can get rid of streak with an astringent.
