How to Apply Self Tanner?

It’s always a good time for a summer glow but not everyone is willing to spend hours in the sun to get it. The simplest way to get a nice tan is by using self-tanners. You could go any way you want with this, but if you want a truly amazing self-tan, you want to make sure you apply a quality product on your skin. The revolutionary sunless tanning products by Bondi Sands are a wonderful option that will help you get that ever-coveted tan. Their solution is enriched with aloe vera, and infused with a fresh coconut scent. Once you have the right product in your hands, everything is downhill from there.

How to Apply Self TannerPrepare Your Skin

Prior to applying self tanner, you want your skin to be ready to soak up all of that tanning solution. First, take time to exfoliate to remove dead skin cells and pay special attention to your elbows, knees and ankles. Make sure your skin is completely dry before applying the solution.

Apply in Sections

Don´t rush the process. Do the arms first, then the legs, then the torso. Go easy on areas with tougher skin, such as your elbows, knees, and ankles. Also, very lightly apply self-tanner over your hands and fingers, and clean off your palms as needed with a wipe, but be sure not to wash them.

Allow Time for It to Dry

Give your skin at least 10 minutes, so all the solution can sink into your skin before you decide to get dressed. Choose loose clothing that you can be comfortable in for the next three hours and stay clear of the heat and any activity that can make you sweat.

Protect Your Skin

Don´t forget to apply sunscreen every day. Even though your skin will be tanned, you’ll still need to protect it from the sun. This will help your tan last longer. Applying self-tanner daily is another tip that can give your tan a boost and maintain that glow for longer.
