If you're someone who cannot wear white until their skin is a glowing bronze, this article is for you. We all know about the dangers of a natural tan. But self-tanning can be a spectacular and safe alternative, provided that you know what you're doing! In this feature, we've rounded up seven toning beauty products for all tastes and colors which will quickly prepare your skin for the wedding day with a sunkissed glow.
Self-tanning gels are easy to apply in thin and even layers. They are usually quickly absorbed and do not leave greasy stains. What is more, if you want to achieve not only a tanned hue but also a slight glow that shimmers in the sun, some self-tanning gels can help with this. For example, Sun 365 Instant Self Tan Lancaster with a glow effect.
Unlike a gel, the cream has a denser consistency due to the predominance of nutritional components. So we recommend this self-tanning format for dry skin. For example, the Sisley Self Tanning Body Skincare, which contains rich macadamia oil, is great. Remember, the cream will usually take longer to absorb. And to distribute it evenly, it is best to use a special glove.
If you already have a favorite body cream that you don't want to part with, grab a self-tanning concentrate. Add a few drops to your regular skincare product and you're good to go! You'll be able to control the intensity of the shade yourself. The more drops, the more pronounced the effect. Use fewer drops for a softer sun-kissed look.
Self-tanning oil can be difficult to apply all over the body. But these products are ideal for the exposed parts of the body. Apply right before leaving the house and get a two-in-one benefit - an easy natural tan and radiant skin. Try the legendary Huile Solaire Roucou Lige St Barth with coconut oil and achiote extract to give your skin a delicate copper sheen.
Like a gel, body milk has a lighter, more fluid texture than a cream. The product nourishes the skin and leaves skin looking and feeling healthier than ever! For a gradual tanning lotion try Pure Gradual Tanning Lotion. It contains vitamin E to give you that nourished, healthy skin look.
At first glance, sprays are the most convenient to apply - your hands do not get stained and the process is simple and fast. But we strongly advise you to smooth the product out with a mitt after spraying - otherwise, stains may remain and you might even get a few streaks.
Since the self-tanning body mask does not have any tinting, it must be applied as carefully as possible so as not to miss even the smallest patch of skin. It's difficult but not impossible. Self-tanning masks do not stain clothes. After it dried, you can even relax on a bed with white silk sheets and you won't see a single stain.
