When you need to be your most radiant self but there is no sun in sight, you turn to self-tanning products. And for several reasons. Not only because you can get the dream black magic tan in just a few hours, but also because it is a lot healthier and safer than using tanning beds. There is a vast range of such products on the market and all of them offer various benefits. Here is what the most important benefits are and what to look for premium results.
What to Look for in Products
Your self-tanning mousse or spray needs to have a rich formula of ingredients that will prompt you a flawless, streak-free tan. Most important ingredients that need to be present are the natural ingredients infused with Aloe Vera and Phytolon that will hydrate the skin and prevent it from premature ageing. Also, you need it to have Quandong, Australian Kakadu Plum Extract (Vitamin C) and Vitamins A and E.
Safe and Healthy
In comparison to using a tanning bed, using self-tanning products is not as harmful. In fact, there are no hazardous UV rays that can cause premature ageing and in worse cases, cancer on the skin. In addition, they are good for the skin. They hydrate it, make it firm and strong and fresh. Your skin will be glowing and your black magic tan will capture the hearts of all around you.
Easy and Convenient
Self-Tanning products are very easy to use. You need to plan the day for tanning though as you will need to exfoliate your body prior to doing the self-tanning. Once you are done with the exfoliation process you can apply it using a tanning mitt, making sure that you apply an even amount of the product all over the body, excluding the hands, face and feet. For the latter, you need to use the excess amount of product because you don’t need too much of it.
As the tan will last long (let’s say 6-14 days depending on the product), it is very convenient to use tanning products. In just a few hours you will get the tan you want and if you decide you don’t want it anymore you can use a tan removal product and take it off with another exfoliation process.
Fresh Smelling and Streak-Free
Long gone are the days and the self-tanning products that had a sharp, appalling smell due to the chemicals in the formula they contained. Today, the cosmetics industry is finding new ways to revolutionise and improve the formula so that it won’t leave orange streaks across the skin.
Suitable for All Skin Tones
The best thing about self-tanning products is that they can be used for any skin tone and get the results you want. People with very fair skin tones can’t spend a lot of time sunbathing under the Sun because their skin will burn and no matter how hard they try they won’t get the tan they won’t. Fortunately. With self-tanning products, there is no risk of burning the skin.
Finally, you get instant results. If that is not an attractive benefit, I don’t know what is! Self-tanning products really work, you just need to dedicate some time to the whole routine. Once you figure it out, you can enjoy the lush tan in every season of the year.
