Safely Tan with or without Sun

June 29, 2014

I’ve grown to not be to fond of the sun the older I get, but we all know the “sun-kissed” look has always been a favorite. (Just look at Jersey Shore’s Snooki…Not.)

Tanning Tips
If you are an outdoor person and have leisure time to spare, you could soak in the summer sun to get a perfect tan. Afterall, it is the natural way to achieve that bronze glow, easy to get, economical and fun too. Otherwise you could choose indoor devices to get a ‘sunless’ tan, through a tanning bed, tanning spray or cream to tone down your skin to a beautiful, brownish shade. There are many instant and temporary tan products introduced in the market to cater to customers who prefer a quick and short-term solution.

Tan shades

Here are some of the ways in which you can get an even:

While tanning outdoors it is important, apply sunscreen twenty minutes before you leave. If you are entering the water, you need to apply another layer even though your lotion maybe waterproof, as water accelerates the tanning process.

Do not excessively tan yourself or use products like baby oil, which in fact burn your skin instead of tanning it. A daily dose of the relevant amount of the sun will help in getting a perfect, even, and healthy sun-kissed look.

Tan Lines

If you are using indoor devices such as horizontal tanning beds, vertical chambers or spray booths, choose ones with lowest ultra-violet (UV) radiation and more number of bulbs. This will help getting a darker tan faster therefore reducing the exposure.

To get an even tan you need to rotate at regular intervals in all angles to get the shade of the tan evenly. You begin with one position (whether it is lying down or standing) and after five minutes turn around either on your stomach or if you are standing to your back. After another five minutes, turn to the left and right in equal intervals. This rotational process is required to avoid getting a ‘zebra’ look.

If you are trying to get a tan at home with a professional tanning spray, ensure it is only two or three shades darker that your natural skin tone in order to make it look more natural. Hold the can at least ten inches away from the body and apply in controlled and even strokes on every part of the body, pausing at the end of each stroke. This will ensure a relatively perfect tan.

It is important to know that over exposure whether naturally in the sun or in ‘sunless’ tanning indoors is harmful to the skin. You will not be able to sport a tan, as you will have to wait until the sunburn heals and your skin is ready for exposure again. Get a bronze look not a burnt look.
