Here comes the spring season with its oh-so-bright appeal and some unveiled shoulders and legs! With the sun's rays still so scarce, how will you manage to get that attractive tan you’ve been craving for? With some "not so fake” tan tips, you’ll be able to generate a natural-looking golden glow on your bare skin.
Prepare, Enhance & Sculpt
A- Obtaining outstanding sun-kissed skin needs good knowledge of the steps. Before you apply any tanning product, you need to prepare your skin, and this means that exfoliation is key. After you ensure your skin is free of dead cells, comes the moisturizing process. Apply moisturizer to your hands, feet, knees, and elbows... to avoid a too-dark or blotchy finish.
B- Applying self-tanning products requires precision as well. If you’re using a tanning spray, best coverage comes with downward strokes. A lotion also provides a beautiful bronzing color, yet you have to know for sure that you’ve applied it evenly all over without missing any part, especially on your back.
Spots not to forget: The décolleté area and the wrists and heels are often forgotten areas that need to be moisturized after applying the lotion so as not to settle into creases.
Spots to avoid: The nails... that could end up looking as if they were baked if you are not careful! Ooh!
