Now that it is getting warmer outside and we are looking forward wearing our most love dresses and skirts again we should check to status of the tan. A beautiful skirt should not be accompanied by white legs, right? I will give you some tips for the preparation, daily care and review six different self-tan products for you.
The preparation for a beautiful self-tan
The next step should be moisturizing. Especially knees, elbows, ankles, feet and other more dry skin parts.
For the application, I prefer to use a tanning mitt. Place the product onto the mitt and apply in circular motion. Check that you have applied the product everywhere and evenly. Use the leftovers to apply onto the hands and feets.
Let the product dry and tan. For the best results let the product react overnight.
In between of your self-tanning routine, you should keep your skin moisturized.
