Trying to look your best for the pictures can be done through a lot of ways. It could be due to the lighting in the area, the shadows you’re playing around with, make up or even the kind of camera you use. Whichever these may be, trying to look great for selfies can be done in various ways. One of the ways we’re going to tackle here would be using self tanners to help you look great.

If you aren’t familiar with self tanners, this is a method of tanning that does not use the sun or UV rays in particular. Self tanners use chemicals to provide your skin with the certain hue and at times dubbed as a fake tan. If you or a friend wants to get their tanning fix, it’s best to rely on self tanners for this case. Due to some recent studies, consistent exposure to UV rays has caused the rise of skin cancer to be the fourth most found cancer in the globe. With that in mind, it’s not surprising that many individuals would seek out the much healthier alternative to tanning.

In order to make the most out of using self tanners and looking your best for selfies, here are some tips to remember:

– Much like a bronzer, you can use self tanners as a means of contouring. The difference with self tanners is they last longer than bronzers so you don’t need to reapply your contour every day. If you’d like to make the most out of your self tanners as a contouring agent, it’s important to do a thorough exfoliating prior to self tanning. For a much cleaner output for your contouring, you can make use of an airbrush. This method is also called spray tanning.

– Self tanners provide a good coverage thus if you have any scars or blemishes you want to get rid of without having to constantly put on make up every day. By putting on a layer of self tanner, you can easily hide your imperfections while also getting an even tone which makes for great selfies. If you want to combine the use of a self tanner as a coverage and a contour, you can simply use a slightly darker shade of the self tanner on some areas. A good way to do this would be to slightly dab the darker tone to your skin and build it up from there.
