In the struggle of maintaining this trend number of tanning products have been introduced in cosmetic and medicine market during last few years. According to many celebs, tanning your skin with artificial tanning application is the best way to hide short comings of your facial skin and to have a very self-conscious less feelings all day long. But many guys are still afraid of using them as they think that they will end up with some disadvantages. So for them, I am writing this article as a guide to use tanning products to have a sexy bronzed skin when you are just to hit beach or any party. Here is your handy guide of self-tanning:
A complete self-tanning guide:
- Do experimental test at your skin:
Apply a little tan spray or lotion on the small patch of your skin to check whether it looks fine at your skin or looking extra ordinary bronzed. See whether this product is irritating or having any reaction with your skin or all is fine. After checking both points, select the best product that is suitable for your skin and style.
- Select your weapon:
Now this is the time to decide whether to choose cream or spray or lotion. My suggestion for men is sprays and lotions. As they spread evenly on your hairy body and like creams they don’t stick in between your body hair.
The best products are Read’s own clear bronzing mist, Sienna X express Tanning mist and St Tropez self-tanning mist. They are having 360 angle nozzle that spread the tanning product evenly on your body.
- Go for gradual tanning:
Don’t go for deep and dark tanning from very start. Just go gradually from light tanning product to deep tanning products. Otherwise you will end up with very un-natural bronzed look. For gradual tanning the best products available are Garnier Ambries Solair Light Glow, james read light glow dry body tan, everyday gradual tan, Fake Bake’s fair Gradual tan.
- Exfoliate first:
The most happening mistake among guys is not exfoliating skin before applying artificial tanning products. Applying artificial tan on rough skin is like spraying a pant on un-even surface that end up looking patchy. So before you apply your tanning product, exfoliate you skin with any scrub or cleansing lotion so that tanning go perfectly even.
- Use a Mitt:
After applying your tanning product, man it with a mitt. Use gloves on hand to get perfect results and even spreading of your product. Spread it with big strokes in circular manner so that it get absorbed by your skin properly and don’t looks rough and patchy. Make sure the product is not stick to your hair.
- Let it dry:
After applying your fake tan on your skin, leave it to get dry. Don’t wear clothe until it get dry. Don’t wear tight clothing and don’t use deodorants and perfumes after 8-10 hours of application.
- Wash your hands:
If you are not using gloves in this procedure, wash your hands immediately after application. Otherwise tan will dry on your hands that will look odd.
- Correct mistakes:
If a mistake happened during your tanning procedure and you have end up with rough tanning or black or dark patches. You can remove the fake tan by tan removal products or tan removal wet wipes immediately. Don’t leave it for long time, otherwise removal will become difficult. Or you can use wet wipes soaked in lemon juice and apply it on the damaged area to remove fake tan.
